Spring Valley High School students making the honor roll were recently awarded for their commitment to academic success. Honor roll students were dismissed from class ten minutes early on January 18th and awarded with movie theater popcorn from a local theater. Volunteerer parents with the Local School Improvement Committee (LSIC) passed out the popcorn to these high achieving students.
Spring Valley had the incredible number of 624 students make the honor roll for the third six weeks grading period which represents 59% of the school. To make the honor roll, students must have a 3.0 Grade Point Average.
The popcorn was donated by Marquee Cinema at Pullman Square.
The following table breaks down the number of students in each class qualifying for the honor roll:

Congratulations to Ms. Amy Wolfe, she has been voted the SVHS March Teacher of the Month! She teaches English 11 and English 12.
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.
JOSTEN senior delivery will be the morning of Friday April 15th.
