The kindergarten-5th grade students at Simeon Rural School wanted to do a service project this year for Christmas. They decided to create care packages for the essential workers at the hospital and both clinics in Valentine. A variety of snacks, activity books, chap sticks, lotions, and water were gathered to remind our county’s medical employees how important they are and thank them for their service over the past year.
The Kindergarten-5th grade students at Simeon Rural School worked hard to practice for this year’s Christmas program, titled, Yankee Doodle’s Dandy Christmas. Yankee Doodle was suffering from a bad tooth ache and was very gloomy. Benjamin Franklin, Betsy Ross, Thomas Jefferson, and George Washington and a variety of other helpful characters came straight out of 1776 to help Yankee get into the Christmas spirit. A surprise guest named Macaroni showed up in the end to help make Yankee's day!

The Valentine Speech season is officially underway. Congrats to all speakers and placers today at the 1.15.22 Icebreaker Meet here at VHS! You are off to a great start!
VES students focus on being safe, respectful, and responsible. Each month, we hold an assembly to talk about expectations as well as honor those who have received a badger paw or positive office referral for expectations met. Then, we draw names for an extra special treat, and these students pictured here had their names drawn in December. Congrats to Harper Wright and Hunter Hagedorn (K), Zane Christiansen and Laramie Foster (1st), Robert Burdick (2nd), Amelia Wonnenberg (3rd), and Willow Ohde (4th). They enjoyed hot cocoa, cookies, and games with a classmate of their choosing. Good work, VES Badgers!
