Sign Up for Sports Physicals (DATE CHANGE!)
If your athlete needs a sports physical, and you do not plan on having your private medical provider conduct it, the school will be offering them, free of charge!  Please note that the original dates have changed, due to a scheduling conflict. Sports physicals for all potential athletes (for all 3 seasons in 22-23; fall, winter and spring) will be held at Richard T. Stank Middle School, Wednesday, August 10, 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. and Wednesday, August 17, 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.  An appointment is necessary and can be obtained by calling Kim Belnome in the athletic office at 775-9144 or Colleen Lynch in the MS health office at 775-9136. If you are not sure of the status of your athlete's current sports physical you can call the nurse of the building in which your student attends. Finally, the official start date for HS fall season sports (Varsity and JV) will be Monday, August 22.
As always, GO SABERS!

Graduating from high school is one of those milestone moments in a person's life, usually involving "leaving the nest" and taking that first solo flight, dealing with issues and responsibilities heretofore handled by mom and dad. With that in mind, SV High School recently partnered with Empower, a division of Horizons FCU, to "transport" senior Sabers to a fictitious but very real place called Mad City.

SV senior at annual Hatala Orthodontics Shadow Day
Each year on Groundhog Day, February 2, Hatala Orthodontics in Binghamton invites a group of high school students to shadow their team, not to predict how many more weeks of winter we'll see, but to get a better idea of how the practice operates on a daily basis. The event is intended for students who have expressed an interest in learning more about becoming an orthodondist, dentist, hygienist, dental assistant, x-ray technician, and/or office staff. It's a unique opportunity for students to get a real world look at a profession they may wish to pursue. This year, Susquehanna Valley High School senior Dan Davies participated in the event, and is pictured HERE with peers from other area high schools.
