For the students, parents and teachers of SVHS/JCIB/SVTA
Congratulations to JCIB’s Verizon Innovative App Challenge team. They were named Best in Region and earned their school a $5,000 cash grant plus virtual training on coding and support from the MIT Media Lab’s app experts to help bring their app concept to life.
And they are in the running to be one of eight Best in Nation winners!
Regional winners will have one last opportunity to dazzle judges during a live virtual presentation the week of February 10.

Shades Valley’s Technical Academies (SVTA) will host an Open House next Tuesday, February 11, from 6:00 to 8:00 PM at SVTA. This will be of interest to students in 8th and 10th grade who may be interested in attending one of the academies offered at SVTA. (Check out their flyer here.)
SVTA invites students and parents of students currently enrolled in a career/technical program or prospective students and parents interested in such programs. Prospective students for the four-year academies (Pre-engineering, Visual Arts & Communications, Theatre, and Finance) are currently 8th graders. Prospective students for the two-year academies (Electrical Technology, Welding Technology, Automotive Maintenance & Light Repair, and Automotive Paint & Refinishing) are currently 10th graders.
SVTA has invited representatives from local postsecondary institutions, business, and industry to attend as well.
It is the goal of SVTA for students and parents to establish a connection between the relevance of its CTE programs and the future opportunities available to them after graduation. And it is their hope to facilitate those conversations and relationships NOW.
Don’t miss this opportunity!

We have the perfect family activity for you this Saturday (before the Irondale Christmas Parade): Take the kids to have breakfast with Santa – and help the Shades Valley Choir in the process!
Rain or shine, the Choral Boosters is sponsoring “Breakfast with Santa” THIS SATURDAY, December 14, 2013, from 7:30 to 9:30 AM at the Irondale Senior Center, 5313 Beacon Drive (just behind Garden Ridge).
Tickets are $8, which includes pancakes, bacon & drink, as well as the opportunity to have your picture taken with Santa!!
Download an order form here, which can be sent in to Shades Valley with your money via your child. If you don’t have a child at the school (or you’re reading this on Friday), email the Choral Boosters and let them know you wish to purchase your ticket at the door so they cook enough food!
Each December, the SVHS/JCIB PTSO sponsors a luncheon to show our teachers, administration, office staff, custodians, lunchroom staffers, and bus drivers how much we appreciate all that they do!
This year, the luncheon will be on Thursday, December 19, 2013. We know there are teachers, staff, and administrators who have made a difference in your child’s life – and this is your chance to pitch in and show it! We need donations AND volunteers to help set-up, serve, and clean-up.
Got a special crockpot recipe? Great! Some ideas from past luncheons include: chicken noodle soup, chili, beef stew, bean soup, meatballs, tortilla soup, italian wedding, etc. Use your creativity! (The faculty absolutely love the crock pot soups, and usually go back for multiple servings.)
Cakes, pies, cookies, corn bread muffins, dinner rolls, or gallons of sweet tea or other drinks are also welcome donations! Salad has even been donated in the past!
Bring your donation to the SVHS front office on Thursday, December 19. PTSO Hospitality Chair, Stacey Bugaj, will be there around 7:00 AM to collect your donations. (Please label your crockpot with your name and phone number.)
If you can help, please email Stacey Bugaj IN ADVANCE exactly what you can donate or when you can volunteer – that just helps the PTSO provide enough of everything for the entire staff. Thanks in advance for your support!
