  • The Valentine Middle School has challenged VES and VHS in a contest to see who can raise the most money to help victims of the recent flooding. So, this Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, any student and staff may wear a hat after paying a minimum of $1 each day. This is just one small thing we can do to help those in need. Please see Mr. Cronin or Mr. Brown at the beginning of each day to participate.
  • Happy Birthday to Gavin Woodson & Hadley Rodgers this week.
  • Congratulations to Logan Cate for being our Badger Scholar of the week.  Mr. Loofe says Logan has been a joy to have in class all year.  Along with having a high grade he always turns in assignments on time, is well prepared for tests, is willing to speak up in class discussions, and will help classmates.  
  • Congratulations to Calvin Stoeger for being our Badger of the Week:  Mrs. Pilakowski says This sophomore earned state qualifying berths in both entertainment speaking and in duet acting (along with his partner, Kaylee Vavra). He has to balance speech practice, track practice, and part-time work, and Calvin finds a way to succeed in all three.
  • Attention students who registered to take the Saturday, April 13 ACT:   ACT made the decision to close our test center for the April 13 test date. They do this when fewer than 16 examinees have registered to test and if alternate test centers are available.  You have been reassigned to another test center and will be notified via e-mail from ACT of the details.
  • On April 2nd the Junior class will be taking their Nebraska State Accountability test.  As you may know, the state accountability test for Juniors is the ACT. This test will be administered to the students on April 2nd. The ACT is not only the state accountability test but it may also be used for college entrance. This is a significant opportunity for these students to perform well. ALL JUNIORS ARE REQUIRED TO BE AT SCHOOL BY 7:30 AM. The ACT test is a time consuming test and will require testing from 8:00 am until approximately 1:00 – 1:15 pm.  The test environment must be free of distractions: therefore, the bells will be turned off and the intercom system cannot be used in the high school.  By ACT protocol, students cannot enter the testing time late nor leave for an appointment during that time. Once the ACT testing starts, students are not to enter or leave.  Also, students cannot have any electronic devices, books, etc. in the test site. The only thing students may have will be No. 2 pencils (provided) and a calculator. At the end of the testing time, students are dismissed for the day. Test Takers will be provided with breakfast and snacks during the short breaks. Lunch will not be provided. On this testing date, the Freshman, Sophomore and Senior classes will not have to attend school. Juniors will be dismissed for the day at approximately 1:00 pm.
