News From Your Director

Well, now I’ve seen two football games called off in 15 years J.  The good news is, we won the award for the longest distance travelled just to eat Chick-Fil-A.  Parents, thanks for being so flexible regarding pickup after our arrival time back at SVHS changed!  Thanks also to the wonderful parent volunteers who helped us through a challenging situation, particularly those who helped with Big Blue as we were preparing to leave!!!
