What We Do

Throughout the year, the Panther Club (SLVMS parent group) sponsors or provides volunteers for a wide variety of events and activities. If you have an idea that you think will help, let us know. We would love to hear from you.

Below are descriptions of some of the events and fundraisers that we have planned.

  • Panther Pantry - Ongoing. The Pantry sells snacks at after school sports events. The money raised helps to fund PE class supplies and after school sports. The Pantry can always use cash and food donations, as well as parent volunteers. The Panther Pantry raises THOUSANDS of dollars to keep after school sports free for SLVMS students. This can’t be done without the help of parent volunteers.

  • Dance Coordination and Support – Every year, the Panther Club sponsors a Halloween Dance. This dance requires a LOT of excited and creative parents getting involved in the decorations & coordination. If you would like to coordinate (or join a team of co-coordinators, please contact a member of the Panther Club Board). We also help support the web class with their spring dance.

  • Winter Carnival – Approximately eight parent volunteers are needed to help count tickets at the end of the carnival (around the lunch time hour) for about an hour.

  • Staff Appreciation Events – The Panther Club sponsors three Staff Appreciation events per year. The “Welcome Back Staff” event in August is generally a light lunch or a continental breakfast. The event in the December/January time frame is the “Winter Staff Appreciation Luncheon” and the event in May changes from year to year. All of these events are arranged and provided for by parent volunteers /The Panther Club.

  • Open House – Food trucks and a silent auction to support programs at SLVMS!

  • 8th Grade End of Year Activities - Parents of 8th graders are needed to coordinate both the 8th grade fun day/picnic at Camp May Mac AND the 8th Grade only Dance. Planning should begin no later than the beginning of May. Contact a school administrator for more information.

  • Honor Roll Celebration Events - Each Quarter. Volunteers are needed to help with set up, ice cream scooping and light clean up. Yes, you will get you see your child be honored for their accomplishment!
