The valentine speech meet for tomorrow has been delayed 1 hour so speech students will now be leaving at 6:00 am from the high school.
Nathan Flannery, Senior, Basketball
Nate tied a school record with 21 Rebounds in a game against Hemingford. For a player who is only 6'0 tall that's very impressive. He does a lot of work before the ball hits the rim to put himself in position to get the rebound.
- Levi Loofe, Business Teacher, Head Boys Basketball Coach
Due to weather forecast VES, VMS, and VHS will start at 10:00 a.m. Friday January 18
