SOAR students visit MU anatomy lab

Spring Valley SOAR students recently visited the Marshall University gross anatomy lab (also known as the cadaver lab) at the VA hospital. Students received hands-on learning experiences delivered by medical experts.

The SOAR (Science Occupations Academic Research) club seeks to expose students from the southern WV coal fields to science-related jobs. Many Spring Valley SOAR students aspire to go to medical school.

Time for Slime Contest Update

Current standings in the Time for Slime Contest: Mrs. Hatfield is in the lead, followed by Mrs. Burner with Mr. Swann in a close third. At this point, almost anybody could end up covered in slime! Bring your donations to the Wolf Head in the mornings or at lunch. Remember, the person giving the largest donation gets to pour the slime!

Buckets for each participating teacher and principal are placed in the Commons before school and during both lunches. The teacher with the most money “donated” will be slimed.

The Time for Slime contest is sponsored by the BETA Club. The money raised will assist in sending students who qualified for the BETA National Competition to Tennessee this summer to compete.

We urge all students to donate money to get their (least) favorite teacher slimed and contribute to a worth cause!
