Hello SDSBVI Family & Friends

We have had a great start to the beginning of our 2014-2015 School Year.  Students are busy reviewing, learning new things, and becoming good citizens.  We have daily announcements this school year and each day we have a motivational point to work on.  At the beginning of anything it is a good idea to set goals!

During one of our announcements we had the following quotation:  "You can’t hit a goal without arrows in your bow.”  That means, if you don’t try, you’ll never know all the great things you can do and can be.  Remember, you can never hit the target unless you shoot the arrow.  Shoot those arrows SDSBVI Pioneers, families, and friends – you will be Proud that you did!
