  • We are celebrating Bully Prevention Week October 5th-9th
  • We are celebrating Red Ribbon Week October 26th-28th
  • Papa John’s Night is October 20th!  Spring Valley will receive a percentage of the profits from sales


The school year is already moving quickly!  We will hold the first set of Parent/Teacher Conferences this month.  The district expectation is that teachers meet with 100% of parents.  The teachers stay late three evenings to help accommodate schedules.  Please watch for an email from your child’s teacher the week of October 5th with information on signing up for conferences through Sign Up Genius.  Conferences will be held through Zoom. Information will also be in my Parent Wildcat Weekly.                                                                          

Unfortunately, we are not able to hold our regular Recognition Assemblies.  Teachers will present each student with a Lifeskill Award in the classroom. Our students are already using so many Lifeskills every day.  One of my favorite things about Spring Valley is how the kids and staff all work together.  SV is my happy place!
