Softball pink out game April 24th

The SVHS softball team is hosting a pink out on April 24th to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research. They are selling t-shirts with the design below with the home plate on the front and “before it hits home” on the back.  Shirts will be $15 and the orders will be due on Monday 4/11/16.  There will be several guests of honor from the SVHS faculty, parents, and community. Proceeds collected at the gates and concessions will go toward a donation to the Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center’s Good Samaritan Fund.

This is a great opportunity to get out and not only support our excellent softball team, but also to support a great cause!  See you on Thursday April 21st!

Ms. Wolfe Teacher of the Month

Congratulations to Ms. Amy Wolfe, she has been voted the SVHS March Teacher of the Month!  She teaches English 11 and English 12.

Amy Wolfe

Ms. Wolfe graciously answered a few questions about her passion for teaching and instructional methods.

What made you want to become a teacher?
“Even though I had earned a degree in psychology, I realized that I wanted to be an English teacher when my children were young. It was exciting and intriguing to see them learn to read and then to discuss what they were reading. I knew that I wanted to share my enthusiasm for literature and the English language beyond my own family, so I went back to school myself to make that happen.”
What are your favorite teaching methods?
“My instructive pedagogy revolves around discussion and writing- lots of discussion and writing, on everything from the literature that we read and analyze, to the grammar and mechanics we use to write, to what is happening in the community and world around us. I want to hear what my students think!”
Ms. Wolfe has been married to her fantastic husband Jamie for twenty-five years and they have five great kids. Amy is a leader for her church’s youth group. She enjoys gardening and, not surprisingly, reading.
She is currently reading The Giver by Lois Lowry.
