They are called to serve. Some never come home.
To celebrate their duty, service and sacrifice, the Steel Valley School District hosted its 40th Annual Veterans Day Program on Friday, November 11, 2022 at the high school auditorium. Among those honored was Mrs. Creola Bolden, who served at the 97th General Hospital in Frankfurt Germany during the Korean War. Steel Valley students were also recognized; some were awarded flags from local, state and federal government officials, while others were recognized for their essays about honor.
The Steel Valley community showed up in force on Sunday, October 23 as the district celebrated its academics, athletics and creative arts programs with its Funder Under the Bridge fundraiser.
The annual event has become an October staple underneath the Homestead Grays Bridge down at the Waterfront. This year's event featured student performances, showcases by the Steel Valley Marching Band and high school cheerleaders, as well as the much-anticipated return of pies to the faces of district and local luminaries.
Last week Steel Valley SADD celebrated Red Ribbon Week! The week began with SADD Officers passing out Red Ribbons to staff and students as they entered the building on Monday October 24th. On Wednesday, October 26th, SADD students worked together to create an information booth during their lunch periods. At this booth they educated their peers on the dangers of using drugs. On Friday, October 30th, SADD created a Poster of a Red Ribbon, where students in the high school could sign to show they were taking the pledge to live a drug free life. In conjunction, each day announcements to the high school were being shared with Red Ribbon Week facts. Finally, SADD participated in the Munhall Halloween Parade where they showed off their Red Ribbons to the community and passed out candy! Steel Valley SADD wants you to remember to celebrate life by living drug free!
