Our students are the heart of our district. We continuously strive to provide programs and resources, not just for academics, but to support each student holistically. The Student Assistance Program (SAP) Team works with students, parents, and teachers to identify issues, including social, emotional, mental health, which may pose a barrier to a student's learning and school success. Through the SAP team, our District offers many groups, programs, and personal approaches to help support each and every student facing challenges to their success.

Once again, this fall, Steel Valley Middle School Student Government is fundraising for our general account using Happy Valley Soup Company. I enjoyed this soup at the Shaker Woods Festival a few years back and thought it was a great way to kick off the “cooler” fall season. Corn Chowder and Stuffed Pepper are my personal favorites, but I am excited to try potato this year too. They are $9 each, and we received 50% profit.
