Happy Holidays & Winter Break
Winter Days Recap : Winter Wonderland
Winter Days is a Spring Valley tradition dating back to 1984, and is the largest annual school-wide community outreach project at Spring Valley High School. The project consists of various charitable drives that benefit a number of local community agencies. Committee chairs survey agency needs, sets collection goals, and begins the challenge of coordinating this large effort.
The theme this year is …
”Winter Wonderland” as Spring Valley celebrates our 38th Winter Days and 38 years of giving back to our community. The theme represents us reflecting on our past years and rejoicing in our own “Winter Wonderland.”
Although we may collect physical items to donate, what we really hope to give to others through Winter Days is the knowledge that they are recognized and remembered during the holiday season.
Viking Teacher & Classified Employee of the Month of November & December
Spring Valley “Teacher of the Month” program is designed to recognize teachers who are making a profound and positive difference in the lives of our students. Each month during the school year Spring Valley students, teachers, parents, and staff are given a chance to vote for a teacher and explain how that teacher has made an impact on them. Congratulations to the “Teacher of the Month” for November Mr. Matthew Oberly and for December Mrs. Carmen Nazario.
Spring Valley “Classified Employee of the Month” program is designed to recognize a classified employee who has gone beyond the call of duty. The teachers and staff voted and the winner of December Ms. Devon Tucker and Mr. Sal Rivera.
Congratulations to Kendall Williams and his family who are seeing a dream become reality. Kendall seized the opportunity to continue his academic and athletic career on the collegiate level at Gardner Webb University.
