SV Students Return from Adventure in France

Several of our Spring Valley students recently returned from an eight day adventure to France. They began their journey with sightseeing in Paris and Versailles and then traveled south by train to visit Avignon, Cassis, Nice, Nîmes, Èze, and Monaco. Some favorite moments included an impromptu outdoor viewing of the Ballet Nice Méditerranée, a breezy boat cruise in Cassis,  and even a late-night run to McDonald's.

New SVH Resources Website

SVH Resources is intended to offer students and parents a new avenue to information. To maximize use of their Chromebooks over the summer, students will find links to academic enrichment and support in all content areas. This will come in the form of practice, tutorials, videos, and games.

For parents, the site offers quick links to helpful news and information, not only about Spring Valley, but also about college and career readiness help for your student. This site is a work-in progress; parents and students can subscribe to receive emails notifying them of changes and additions.

Spring Valley's Robots at Summit Parkway Middle School

Dr. Rodgers, Spring Valley CATE Pre-Engineering teacher, brought the robotics team's VEX robots and small skyrise field to Summit Parkway Middle School on Friday, May 22nd for the students in Summit's STEM Institute of Design and Innovation (SIDI) program to investigate.  The students learned about gear ratios, drive styles, and robot engineering as they explored the performance of a ping-pong ball launcher, two tricycle-bots (one with tank drive and one with arcade drive), and two skyrise robots (one with x-drive and one with arcade drive).
