Parent Involvement Night and Valley Fest
Thanks to all of the parents and students who attended the Learning Assistance Program (LAP) Parent Involvement Night, BBQ and Valley Fest. We had a great turn out. The LAP video and the Leadership video were informative and gave the parents a better understanding of what SVHS is all about. In addition, parents were able to familiarize themselves with the ALEX math program. ALEX is the LAP program used to enhance students' ability to gain skills to pass the End of Course math assessment. It is used in the ALL DAY Program and in Transition.
Thanks too to all of the staff who worked so hard with the students to get the float ready. A special thanks to Darren for building the Phoenix mascot and to Joni for brainstorming a creative way to turn a piece of wood into an eye-catching Phoenix. All the students in the program had a hand in putting the float together. Many of them participated in the Valley Fest parade along with the staff.
