Eagles News · Weekly Update-June 10th- Important Fall 2019- Captains Council Information

Good Afternoon SV Community,

Hard to believe but we have reached the final week of the school year. The year went by so fast, but is not quite over yet.  A reminder that 4th quarter grades determine eligibility for Fall sports.  Please see below for important summer and fall tryout information.. Please make sure you are checking in with your student athletes teachers and monitoring their academics via the mymcps parental portal . There should be no excuse for not being aware of the academic progress of your student athlete.


The Seneca Valley Athletic Department had their first two meetings with the newly formed Captains council. This is a group of 47 student athletes who will be working directly with the Athletic and School Administrative staff in order to help revive Seneca Valley Athletics and help with school spirit. The group will also take leadership training and help define what a true Screaming Eagle Captain should be. The group will be meeting four time during the summer to help plan events for the upcoming school year. The Seneca Valley Athletic Department is extremely excited to begin work with the group.
