8th Grade Graduation Donations

thank you wordleBelieve it or not, it’s time to start making plans for our children’s 8th Grade Graduation from SVMS.  Like the last several years, we’re asking each family to donate at least $60.00 to pay for the exciting activities we have planned for our kids.


Your donation of $60, or whatever works best for your, as soon as possible.  The graduation committee will need to finalize details in the coming month. If you are able to give more, to help cover the cost of students in need, we know the kids would appreciate it.


With your help and support, we’ll make this a wonderful event that our kids will never forget!  


With Sincere Thanks,

The 2018 Graduation Committee
