SC ACTIVITIES AND EVENTS

SC believes that part of being a leader is giving back to our community and doing our part to benefit causes we believe in. In this spirit, we host several fundraising and charitable events annually to encourage student involvement in the community and promote citizenship.

ANNUAL BAKE SALE FOR VETERANS

Every year SC holds a week-long bake sale in the fall to raise money for veterans.  Students bring in goodies to be sold after lunch.  Officers and reps work the sales and are responsible for collecting and turning in money raised. All proceeds go to veterans with a check presented to them at our annual Veteran’s Day Assembly.  During the 14-15 school year we broke our record, raising $735! It was a great way for students to say thank you to all who serve.

WINTER CHARITY DRIVE

It’s said that winter is the season of giving and we take that pretty seriously at SHMS.  Students may choose to participate in two events to help the less fortunate.

  • Toys for Tots:  New, still in the package, toys are collected for the Marine’s Toys for Tots Foundation, putting smiles on many little faces during the holiday season.
  • Spring Hill Clothes Closet: Students also collect gently used items for the Spring Hill Clothes Closet.  Students bring in coats, blankets, boots, mittens, hats and gloves to donate to make sure everyone stays warm during those cold winter months.

BAKE SALE FOR SPRING HILL FOOD PANTRY

The thing about middle school kids is they love to eat.  I mean, they REALLY love to eat.  And far be it from our student leaders to pass up an opportunity to raise funds for a local cause, so in the spring we take advantage of our students’ love of consumption and have one more week-long bake sale.  In the spring of 2015 we were able to present the food pantry with a check for $490. For the love of brownies, our kids are awesome!

FALL AND WINTER DANCES

Our SC leaders work tirelessly to raise money for various charities, but sometimes...we like to party.  We host two dances, one in the fall and one in the spring, for our seventh and eighth grade students.  We hire a dj (Spring Hill High School’s very own, Mr. Curtis Allen), our fabulous PTO sells concessions, and we dance the night away, at least until 9pm.

DOOR DECORATING CONTEST

Homerooms have a blast decorating their classroom doors every winter before break.  As it turns out, our students get pretty artistic (and competitive) when there are doughnuts on the line.  Official judges choose a winning homeroom for each grade level. Ms. Mersbergen’s, Mrs. Torrez’s, and Mrs. Young’s homeroom are the defending champions. We’ll see who gets the doughnut breakfast next year!

SPIRIT WEEK

We love to celebrate our Maverick spirit, so for one week at the beginning of the year we choose some wacky themes to show our school pride!  Here were the themes for the 14-15 school year:

  • Monday- Pajama Day- Monday mornings are rough. Just wear your pajamas to school.
  • Tuesday-  Superhero Day- Dress up like your favorite super hero!  This might be the only time of year you can pull off a cape.
  • Wednesday- Maverick Spirit Day- Show your Maverick spirit by sporting all of your purple and gold!
  • Thursday- Crazy Sock Day- Break out your wackiest socks! Remember, life is too short to match socks.
  • Friday- Twin Day- Dress alike with your bff because, let's face it, just one of you is not enough.

VALENTINE’S SUCKERS

Everyone is a sucker for a sweet note and some candy in February. For $1 students can personalize a note to their friends, teachers, or special someone to be attached to a heart-shaped sucker and delivered to the the recipient during lunch. All proceeds go into their class account to help reduce the cost of field trips.

SCHOOL STORE

This year we started selling keyboard covers for student Macbooks to raise money for SAC events. In the future we hope to expand this idea to a school store where students can purchase SHMS themed supplies and goodies.
