*Applications Now Open for Student Workers at the SV Library for Fall 2024

Attention current 7th grade students - 
Would you like to have some real work experience?  Would you like to earn money vouchers to spend at our ASB office to buy a yearbook, Spirit Wear, Dance Tickets, Field Trips and more?  Or maybe you need community service hours.  Well the SV Library has just the opportunity for you!  We are looking to hire students to run our circulation desk before school, or brunch and lunch for this upcoming fall 2024 semester.

Click HERE to apply. Submit your application as soon as possible since we hire a limited number of students.  
See Mrs. Fulleman at our SV Library if you have any questions.

Textbooks will be turned in during your HISTORY class.  Students should bring their hardcover textbooks in a bag with their name on it to their history class before the 1st per. of the day.  Students must have all textbooks and library books returned to avoid the LOP list so that they may go on field trips, attend end of the year activities, and get the yearbook!
