Flyer for Hitathon

SVHS is hosting a "Hitathon" on May 22 starting at 2 pm.  Everyone is invited to attend.  Hit off our softball pitchers to try to win prizes.  There will also be a 60/40 raffle.  Click HERE for the raffle form.

Tamara Wood, SVHS Math teacher, colleague, wife, and mother, has taught in our district for 13 years.  She currently leads Student Council, May Day, Homecoming, Mr. SVHS, and many other activities within our district and community, as well as being a former softball coach.  

Unfortunately, she was diagnosed with breast cancer in early March.  This came shortly after a diagnosis of cancer in her jaw the previous year which required multiple surgeries and time away from school.  Though both cancers are not related, she is currently undergoing treatment for her current diagnosis while postponing reconstructive surgery for her jaw which would have been scheduled for April.

The overall expected course of treatment is estimated to take a year.  This will include chemo, surgery, and radiation treatments.  This is going to require Wood to take a leave of absence from the classroom for the rest of this school year and potentially part of next year.
