Student Volunteer Oppurtunity

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 cproctorcross1@aol.com.

Great week to be a Timberwolf!

Last night, our #5 Timberwolves defeated #6 Capital 35-28 in a thrilling game with huge playoff implications.

  • All school rules apply, the same as in a school day.
  • Guests of students are required to follow the same rules as SVHS students, no matter what their age.

High school dances involve a wide range of ages and maturity levels. School staff will make every effort to recognize these differences, however, the same rules apply to all ages. In particular, decisions about leaving the dance involve obeying parent instructions and rules as well as school rules and procedures.

Students are strongly encouraged to remain until the end of the dance. There is no re-admittance once you leave. Once you leave the dance, you need to leave school grounds immediately. Anyone leaving before 10:00 pm will have to call home with an administrator for permission. Those who leave early for any reason will also need to sign out at the door.

Thank you for your cooperation,
