Praise from BES principal!

Here is a letter from Marsha Thompson, assistant principal at Buffalo Elementary praising Spring Valley students. Great job students!

“The students and staff at Buffalo Elementary School would like to thank the students at SVHS for their help and generosity this past year. At Veteran’s Day we had the pleasure and honor of the SVHS JROTC in our ceremony. That always makes it extra meaningful! We were, as always, very impressed with these young women and men. Recently, at Christmas, we had an Angel Tree. We would like to send a special thanks to the BETA club and the Spanish Honors Club for providing a Christmas for several of our students! SVHS students are amazing and we appreciate you so much!”
