Congratulations Mathletes

On Saturday, March 3, eight of our students participated in the Mathworks Mathematical Modeling Challenge.  They spent 14 hours working on crafting a viable solution to the problem of re-allocating “lost” food in the food production system to the food-insecure population and discussing/creating other ways to reduce food waste.  In the process, they created a report that could be no longer than 20 pages long. They formed two teams – Paxton Lee, Emma Lilly, Jet Rostykus, Max Ruiz and Madeline Culwell, Ashlyn Kofford, Alakh Patel, Aidan Rooney.

One of the two teams just learned their paper has advanced to the second round of judging  (Jet Rostykus, Emma Lilly, Max Ruiz, and Paxton Lee). They will find out next week if they make “Honorable Mention” or “The Top 6”.  Only 20% of the papers submitted nation-wide earned the distinction of moving on to the second round.

Please help us to keep this event free to encourage kids to attend! If each person reading this would ask one local business to sponsor this event or donate a gift card, we would meet our target. AND, we would have gift cards to give away to keep kids at After-Prom until the end of the event. Sponsors who donate $100 or more will be recognized at the entrance of the Wild Game at After-Prom.

If you cannot find a sponsor, please consider donating just $5 or $10. This will go a long way to helping us keep our kids safe on Prom night! You can find a link to donate or sponsor on our web site (After-Prom Sponsorship and Donations). Any questions, please contact Kaydene Hubert

Approved Flyers for March, 2018






Attached you will find a MS Word Document that reiterates to parents that student bus passes are required to be stored and kept in a safe place over the summer to avoid their loss, and the subsequent cost of a replacement pass.  In addition, the letter also talks about the implementation of Zpass+, a notification system which sends time and location messages via phone text to parents when their student scans on and off the bus. This is a great program that provides another level of safety and security for the students of SVVSD.  Parents are truly going to love this new functionality. The system is currently active and ready for parents to sign up for an account and begin receiving these valuable text notifications.

Z Pass+ information – In an effort to better serve you, we are implementing a program called Z Pass+ this year.  This free program will allow parents to receive text and/or email notifications via their smartphone whenever their student scans on or off the bus.  This technology is invaluable, and provides an additional layer of safety and security for District students utilizing transportation services. The following link has directions on how to sign up.

Please open the following link for more important bus information.
