Senior Painted Parking Spots 2022-2023

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Updated-Info.png
This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is unnamed-18-1.jpg
WATER BASED EXTERIOR LATEX paint is the only type of paint that can be used. Students will also need to leave an approximately four inch unpainted border between the white parking space lines and the paint in their parking spot. Please use blue painters’ tape to ensure this border is accomplished.

The Spring Valley Education Foundation, in conjunction with the administration of Spring Valley High School, is offering a unique opportunity for the Senior students. Seniors are invited to paint their own parking spot to increase school pride and camaraderie. Students are encouraged to express themselves through positive artwork, to beautify the campus, to build school spirit, to begin a Senior tradition. As a byproduct, we believe this fundraiser will increase campus security. Having student’s park in reserved spots can also help identify unwelcome visitors to campus if they park in student spots.


Purchasing a Reserved Senior Parking Space allows the purchasing Senior student to personalize his/her assigned space by painting it. Funds raised will be collected by the Spring Valley Education Foundation to support the educational needs of
Spring Valley High School. Reserving and painting parking spaces is a privilege rather than a right. This fundraising opportunity will benefit many students, as well as provide convenience not previously afforded. “RESERVED” or parking spaces will continue to be available for Senior students who do not wish to purchase and decorate a parking spot.

Prerequisites:
• Must be current with all fees and charges
• Must have completed Alive at 25 Program
• Must purchase a SVHS parking pass for 2022-2023 school year

SPRING VALLEY HIGH SCHOOL HAS 10 NATIONAL MERIT SCHOLARSHIP SEMIFINALISTS

Ten students in Spring Valley High School who are showing exceptional academic ability and potential for success in rigorous college studies are competing for National Merit Scholarships. They are among 16,000 semifinalists in the 68th annual National MeritScholarship Program.

High school juniors entered the 2023 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2021 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®), which served as an initial screen of program entrants. The nationwide pool of semifinalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state.

Spring Valley’s National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists are Stephanie A. Babinec, Aleena A. Chattha, Madison K. Han, Justin I. Kong, Ryan D. Leadbitter, Christopher W. Ravan, Jacob A. Stoll, Adams Clarendon Stone, Sai Siddharth C. Thumsi, and Anna V. Todd.

About 95 percent of the semifinalists are expected to attain finalist standing, and approximately half of the finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar® title.

Three types of National Merit Scholarships will be offered in the spring of 2023. Every finalist will compete for one of 2,500 National Merit® $2500 Scholarships that will be awarded on a state-representational basis. About 950 corporate-sponsored Merit Scholarship awards will be provided by approximately 180 corporations and business organizations for finalists who meet their specified criteria, such as children of the grantor’s employees or residents of communities where sponsor plants or offices are located. In addition, about 160 colleges and universities are expected to finance some 3,800 college-sponsored Merit Scholarship awards for finalists who will attend the sponsor institution.

First Week Back Recap

Freshstart 2022 Recap

Spring Valley High School Student Council Earns Top National Award

For its exemplary record of leadership, service, and activities that serve to improve the school and community, the Spring Valley High School Student Council has been recognized as a 2022 National Gold Council of Excellence by the National of Student Council (NatStuCo). The NatStuCo program is supported by its parent organization, the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP).

Spring Valley’s Student Council sets the bar for excellence each year by planning and executing school wide events, charity fundraising, and community involvement. This year they raised $13,000 for Make A Wish SC, collected over 1,000 Children’s Books for Richland School District Two’s Ready-2-Read Program, as well as provided Christmas gifts for (4) military families stationed at Camp Lejeune. Even in the midst of Covid-19 they were able to build school spirit and bring a sense of normalcy back with spirit weeks, themed football/basketball games, assemblies and a host of other events that united the school.

“Receiving a National Gold Council of Excellence Award shows the utmost dedication a school’s students, leaders, and staff have made to making their community a better place,” said NASSP CEO Ronn Nozoe. “Spring Valley High School has gone above and beyond in elevating student voices to ensure they are establishing a positive climate and culture, as well as fostering academic and social growth for all.”

Spring Valley principal Jeff Temoney is very excited about this recognition. “Young people are remarkable. When we support them and provide opportunities to lead, they will amaze us every time. I am so proud of our Student Council members and our Student Activities Director, Mrs. Olisa Ashford, for their service and the positive impact they continue to have on our school. They have been intentional and innovative in their efforts to engage and unite our students, staff, parents, and the entire Spring Valley community.”

“It’s been a great honor and privilege for the past four years to have the opportunity to be a part of Student Council,” said McCreary, the 2021-2022 Student Body President, when he learned that Spring Valley was awarded with this distinguished honor. “I have continually realized the impact that Student Council has made in our school, and how it not only benefits our entire student body, but the community as a whole. It’s always great to see what hard work and perserverance can lead to.”

To meet the requirements for the National Gold Council of Excellence Award, a student council must meet a variety of criteria. In addition to basic requirements such as a written constitution, regular meetings, a democratic election process, the councils have demonstrated successful sponsorship and participation in activities such as leadership development and service to the school and community. 

About National Student Council 

National Student Council (NatStuCo) provides and promotes professional development and leadership training to student council advisers who, in turn, teach leadership skills to student council members. NatStuCo is dedicated to preparing and empowering student leaders to better serve their schools and communities. For more information, visit http://www.NatStuCo.org.

Spring Valley faced off against Dreher in the final championship game but time ran out for the Vikings and Dreher won 12-10 to win the State title. Spring Valley took 2nd place overall, which is an amazing result for their first time playing in the State Tournament! The tournament team consisted of:

Discovery Sophomore Lily Zhang Named the 2022 South Carolina Stockholm Junior Water Prize (SJWP) State Winner

The SJWP is the world’s most prestigious award presented to a high school student for a water-research project. The Water Environment Federation (WEF) has coordinated the U.S. competition since its inception in 1997 and partners closely with their Member Associations (MAs) to execute the program. The competition among state winners is held in June in order to send the national winner to the international competition in late August. It is open to public, private, or independent high school students in grades 9-12 who have reached the age of 15 by Aug. 1 of the competition year and have conducted water-related science projects. Judging criteria are the same as the international competition and include ratings for relevance, methodology, subject knowledge, practical skills, creativity and paper/presentation. The Water Environment Association of South Carolina has selected Lily Zhang as the state winner and is fully sponsoring her travel to the national SJWP competition at the Colorado School of Mines in Denver, Colorado from June 16-19, 2022. Lily will be submitting her research paper and presenting her research on “The Individual and Combined Effects of Microplastics
and Acetominophen on the Heart Rate and Survival Daphnia magna.” Congratulations to Lily and her research teacher, Dr. Michelle Wyatt!
