The first schoolwide Kindness Assembly was held on October 25th.  Many students were recognized for their kindness, and each chose a charity to donate a dollar to in their name.  On October 30th, Vine Hill celebrated with a schoolwide costume parade!  BEARS are now back at work with Parent/Teacher conferences scheduled to start November 12th.  Over 50 students are working on a "3 Snaps" Production of a Frozen-inspired play which will be performed in early December.

Brook Knoll students just completed a 3 week introductory fall session of classes in our Brook Knoll Garden.  This fun and educational enrichment program will continue in the spring with another 6 week session of classes.  Students and staff participated together in 2019’s Great American Shakeout on October 17, 2019.  We enjoyed our first ACARE Assembly led by our school counselor Ryan Navaroli.  This PBIS oriented assembly is being further supported through monthly ACARE classroom lessons that reflect the monthly character traits our school follows.

Our annual Fall Festival, organized by the BKEC was a hit with record breaking attendance.  This fun activity was followed with a “Healthy Choices Chain” schoolwide event in recognition of Red Ribbon Week.  We closed out October with our annual Literature Character Parade.

We’ve kicked off November with a visit from the Banana Slug String Band and a patriotic assembly led by our 5th grade students.

Our students have enjoyed our two month science enrichment program, which concluded with a presentation of moon rocks provided by NASA.  The students were able to hold these in their hands, making it a major highlight.

After school enrichment offerings right now:  French, Spanish, Art, Drama, Code Naturally, SkateDogs

October was a full month!  The Dolphins were very busy with all kinds of activities, from College and Career Week, a visit from the Zombies, soccer and basketball try-outs, Red Ribbon Week and so much more!  Our Band played the Monster Mash for us on 10.29.19 and we are looking forward to our Drama class’ rendition of Clue on November 15 and 16.  

With a non-student day on 11.1 and Veteran’s Day on 11.11, we will be at the end of our first trimester (11.22.19) in no time!  Schedules for Trimester 2 will be distributed on Thursday, November 21, just before our Thanksgiving Week holiday (11.25-29). Students will hand-carry Trimester 1 report cards home on Friday, December 6th and then will bring home Honor Roll and Principals’ List certificates on Friday, December 13.  

At this time of giving thanks, the staff at SVMS continues to be grateful for the support provided by our families.  This is a team effort and we are thankful to all be on the same team. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and a restful week off.  A

Lights? Who needs them. The Haunted House scares again! 

Congratulations yet again to Mr. Wyner and the Haunted House team for another successful production run.  This year they earned over $18K in ticket sales, another fundraising record for the Leukemia and Lymphoma society.  A unique twist this year was that the power went out on Saturday right in the middle of the show.  The team didn't miss a bit, or a scare.  A special thanks to Nick from Allegri Electric who went above and beyond to keep the show alive with timely and oh so appreciated electric generation service.
