With Memorial Day fast approaching, the 2017/18 school year will soon come to an end and our students will be on summer break. The graduation ceremony for the Class of 2018 will be held on Friday, June 1st starting at 7:00 p.m. in the MHS Gymnasium. The valedictorian of this year’s graduating class is Joel Doepker, and the salutatorian is Hannah Korbel. All community members are invited to attend this event to celebrate the achievements of our graduating seniors.
Congratulations and thank you to Jane Ringler and Amy Skaggs who will be retiring from River Valley Schools in June. Also, congratulations to our newest inductees in the National Honor Society—Jacob Ashcraft, Connor Brown, Victoria Des Lauries, William Korbel, Aidan Olson, Logan Payne, Emma Springer, Allison Schmidt and Matthew Schmidt. There are now 24 members in the River Valley chapter of NHS.
Thank you to all of the community members who attended one of our Community Lunch Programs this year. We will continue this program again next school year during the months of September, October, November, March, April, and May. Our community calendar will be published again next school year and will be mailed out to all postal patrons in August. Thank you to all community members who have supported this project by advertising in the calendar.
