We have had some inquiries about the SWC basketball tournament as far as location and times. The conference does the seeding next week based on power points as they want all games possible played to make sure the seedings are correct. Once they get those they will assign the brackets and we post them as quick as we can. Recently it was approved that all boys and girls game be played on Mondays and the conference is trying to secure officials for all the possible sites to make that possible. In years past we have alternated the boys and girls games on Mondays and Tuesdays but with such a tight schedule that week it was decided to allow a snow day during that week so they are hoping to move all games to Mondays from this point forward.
SWC Basketball Tournament - Girls will play in Minden on Monday Jan 21 @ 5:00 pm Boys will play in Ogallala on Monday Jan 21 @ approximately 6:15 CT. We will post official brackets tomorrow when we get them converted to correct format for our platforms.
Saturday's basketball games in Ogallala - The JV boys will play in the Auditorium and all other games will be played at Prairie View Elementary School.
The girls JV game on Saturday vs Minden will only be 2 quarters due to low numbers for Minden. Please plan accordingly for the start of the Girls and Boys Varsity games.

One cool program VHS has implemented is their internship program. We, at VES, get to see many HS students throughout the day. These are students who want experience working with kids as they see that in their future. Brennann Jackson has been working in PE with Mr. Little, and today just happens to be his birthday. Happy birthday, Brennann!

As the note sent home today in students’ folders stated, there is a change in Valentine Elementary‘s calendar in January. On Tuesday, January 29, students at Valentine Elementary will not have school. This is just for the students at VES. The teachers have an opportunity to attend a one day training, so school is canceled for that day.
