Due to a glitch in the original application and the lack of responses, we have extended the application deadline for STUCO officer positions. The new application deadline is May 3rd. The new campaign week will be May 9-12th with Elections taking place on Friday; May 13th. Please fill out this application if you have interest in running for a class officer position for the 2022-2023 school year. Remember that if you are a current class officer and plan to run for an officer position next year, you do need your advisor to sign off. For Freshman and Sophomores, that would be Ryan Shelton and for Juniors that would be Victoria Curtis.
Seniors, it is that time!!! You can begin making your nominations for this year’s senior superlatives. First and Last names must be included on the form. The deadline for this is May 6th, so the results can be tallied. The top 2/3 will be added to a final voting form. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
The powderpuff game has been rescheduled for Thursday; April 28th from 5-6:30 at Ben Stern Soccer Field.

HIGH SCHOOL SUMMER SCHOOL
Sparkleberry Lane Construction
We wanted to let all of our families know that we will be experiencing some traffic issues on Sparkleberry Lane in front of the school over the next 2-3 months. Richland County will be making updates to the gas lines, storm drains, and adding sidewalks. Work crews will do their best to minimize the impact to arrival and departure times at school. If you are a car rider or student driver, we strongly encourage you to arrive early to school to make sure you are on time for class.
After School Tutoring
We will offer both on-campus and virtual tutoring options this year. Offering both platforms allows us to provide more options for students to get academic assistance after school. Please visit the SVHS Tutoring website for a complete schedule of the tutoring opportunities.
A special thank you goes out to the Spring Valley Education Foundation for funding this important initiative.
