    SVMS SGA - Charitable and Compassionate

    Our Student Government Association sponsored a shoe drive for the Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter. They collected 158 pairs of shoes, and then the SGA Officers delivered them. SVMS students are always quick to assist the community in any way possible.

    Congratulations to Mr. Borden
    Kalon Borden wrote a successful grant proposal for Thinkpads and iPads for his seventh grade English class. We are very proud of his accomplishment, and we know that our seventh grade students will gain so much from the use of this new technology.

      Recipes from The Valley

    Recipes from the Valley

    The time has come, and the Sipsey Valley Middle School cookbooks titled Recipes from the Valley have arrived! This has been a labor of love weeks in the making because our community's recipes are finally compiled and ready for use. We have collected over 100 recipes from students, teachers, parents, and other community residents (New Hope Baptist and First Cumberland Presbyterian to name a few). Contact Mrs. Lowry if you are interested in purchasing.
