From our Parent Volunteer Coordinator Ms. Joyce Clark,
Volunteers are needed Saturday, Nov. 4, to help plant 300 young trees on city rights-of-way in Huntington.
The project is part of the City of Huntington Urban Forestry Advisory Council’s effort to replenish Huntington’s urban forest.
Seedlings were acquired from the West Virginia Department of Forestry through a Mountaineer Treeways grant. The seedlings were potted three years ago and have been growing at River and Rail nursery under the care of George Kotalic. It is now time to get them in the ground. The holes for the trees were partially dug this past Friday.
Volunteers should meet at 9 a.m. at the 14th Street West gazebo, located across from The Wild Ramp, and are asked to bring a shovel, gloves, gardening snips and scissors if possible. Volunteers will receive instructions at the gazebo and divide into teams. The young trees will be planted in the West End, Highlawn and Fairfield neighborhoods.
Community service hours are available for high school and college students for this project. For more information, contact Courtney Proctor Cross via text at 304-544-5891 or email email@example.com.

Spring Valley Students attend Marshall University’s SUPER Read to me Day. Our freshman academy students shared stories with small groups of elementary aged students to promote reading amongst all ages!
Attention 10th and 11th grade students,
The Preliminary SAT – a National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test – is a preparatory version of the SAT exam. You can only take the PSAT once per year. Most students take the test in both 10th and 11th grade. If you earn a high score on the PSAT your junior year, you could qualify to receive a National Merit Scholarship. The PSAT tests your skills in reading, writing, and math. Please see your counselor for more information.
The cost is $16. Please bring a check to Mr. Jordan payable to Spring Valley High School. Only 25 spots are available. Reservations for a spot to take the PSAT is on a first come, first serve basis.
Attention Senior Parents,
Please plan to attend the Financial Aid meeting schedules for October 16th at 6pm in the school library. Representatives from the State Department will present information on scholarship opportunities, federal financial aid, and the FAFSA.
Any student interested in joining BETA Club this year, please pick up an application in room 224. Past members must pay dues this year to remain in BETA. See Mrs. Williams for more information.
