Valentine High School graduated class of 2020 will be having a ceremony on Friday, July 31 at 4:00 PM tentatively at the high school gym. Due to the North Central Health District Directive Health Measures, Valentine High School has to work under the following guidelines for their “mock” graduation for the class of 2020. *50% of maximum capacity *Parties, aka ticketed groups, at a gathering cannot exceed 8 individuals *Maintain at least 6ft of separation between ticketed groups These measures are effective through 11:59 PM, July 31, 2020; unless renewed, extended, or terminated by subsequent order, all persons in Cherry, Keya Paha, Brown, Rock, Boyd, Holt, Knox, Antelope, and Pierce counties are ordered to comply. Valentine high school’s plan includes the following: -A Google form will be sent to the senior students and parents through our SMS system. RSVP’s will be required from the students of the class of 2020. These RSVP’s are due by Wednesday, July 15. Any RSVP’s returned post deadline will not be accepted as plans to move forward rely on the number of students attending the event. -Those who RSVP will be provided with 8 tickets in the form of waivers. 7 of those tickets can be given to people the graduate would like to attend the ceremony. The 8th ticket will be filled out by the student and will be the 8th member of the party during the entire event. Once these tickets are handed out their list cannot change. For instance, an individual becomes ill and cannot attend, their ticket is not transferable. -The days leading up to the event the individuals of tickets groups are asked to stay home if they have been ill or have symptoms (including: fever, sore throat, dry persistent cough, shortness of breath, new loss of taste or smell, etc.). -Only those with signed waivers (tickets) will be allowed to attend the ceremony. Those tickets will be collected at the door and those parties will be expected to maintain a 6ft distance from other parties inside and outside the facilities. -All members of a party are asked to arrive at the same time to be able to enter the building and minimize possible exposure. -The parties will have groups of chairs 6ft apart from other parties on the auditorium floor. Parties will be required to sit in their group from beginning to end. -Seniors will sit with their families during the ceremony as a part of their party. -During the ceremony the graduated students will walk across the stage and move their tassel and return to their seat. Nothing will be exchanged with the student. -Speeches will be performed by the selected individuals if they plan on attending. -Due to the restrictions there will be no band or choir during the ceremony. -Each individual party will be dismissed starting with the party closest to the exit. Again, this is to insure that the parties maintain correct social distancing. -There cannot be any group pictures taken due to the 6ft social distancing restriction. -Each party will be allowed 1 (one) member to be able to take pictures when their student is on the stage during the moving of the tassel. -All seniors who RSVP will be required to participate in the ceremony practice that will be held on July 30 at 4:00 PM at the high school gym. -Seniors will be expected to be dressed in appropriate attire and wear their cap and gown with tassel.

VES Badgers are hard at work again this year in meeting our three school-wide expectations, be safe, be responsible, and be respectful. We will be holding a monthly assembly honoring those who have earned a badger paw or positive office referral and also to introduce the next month's focus. One name will be drawn for a special surprise. We held September's assembly on September 3rd, and pictured are all of our students who had earned a badger paw prior to that day. The name drawn was 3rd grader Alex Monroe, and on September 6, she got to have a special lunch with some of the NRSA rodeo queens who were in town. Students will also sign their name to our autograph wall in the front lobby (pictured is Javarius Reed, 5th grader, who earned two badger paws in one day). If you see a badger paw or positive office referral come home, celebrate! Good work, Badgers!

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.

Yesterday, the 4th grade students of VES treated the residents of Pine View to a fabulous concert of Christmas songs! Thanks to the students, their music teacher, Mrs. McQuistan, their classroom teachers, our bus driver, Mr. Gass, the staff of Pine View, and the wonderful residents of Pine View. At the conclusion of the concert, all of our 4th graders shook the hands of the residents and wished them a merry Christmas! What a way to spread some Christmas cheer!
