The SVHS FFA is hosting its first farm equipment auction on May 13th!
There seems to be a lot of sickness lately, here are some tips to help lower the risk of getting sick!
1. Remember to always wash your hands in hot water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer before eating. Bacteria may be on your hands and can be transferred to anything that is touched. You should also avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth as much as you can. 2. Try to sleep more, it allows your body to relax and recover from the day. 3. Make sure to stay hydrated, it can help wash away germs. If you do get sick, try not to pass it along. 4. If you have a fever, cough, or sore throat try wearing a mask if no mask is available, when needing to couch or sneeze, one should use a tissue or the inside of their elbow, this prevents others from getting sick. 5. After your sickness is gone you should replace your toothbrush, there still may be bacteria on it.

Allison Hatfield wins WSAZ Hometown Hero and Teacher of the Month
Spring Valley High School is very happy to recognize Biology teacher Allison Hatfield for winning the WSAZ Hometown Hero award and Teacher of the Month.
In the spirit of a true servant, Ms. Hatfield raised nearly $5,000 in donations to ensure that ALL Timberwolves had a merry Christmas. Allison provided gifts for over 30 of our in-need students this Christmas. For her efforts, she was awarded the WSAZ Hometown Hero award. Watch the video here http://www.wsaz.com/video?vid=408090136
In addition, Ms. Hatfield was overwhelmingly voted Teacher of the Month for December by the Spring Valley Faculty Senate. Mrs. Hatfield was nominated for her caring teacher’s heart and belief that all students can succeed and learn.
Members of the Spring Valley High School Faculty Senate may nominate any teacher for this award based on the five WVDE Professional Teaching Standards. The faculty senate then votes for the teacher of the month.
Spring Valley is very fortunate to have such dedicated teachers as Ms. Hatfield on staff!
Here is a list of the previous Teachers of the Month:
August: Will Totten (Technology)
September: Amanda Maynard (Special Education)
October: Amy Adkins (Spanish)
