Seniors Leaving on a POSITIVE NOTE!
Congratulations Seniors....you have just a few class periods left! We know you are excited to finish up and enjoy the arrival of summer! As your teachers and school staff, we are very proud of you as a senior class. You have shined in so many ways and your positive contribution to our school has left a strong impression.
We want to share clearly with all of you that last year, the destructive/dangerous actions of the seniors class by throwing papers, trash, water, etc. is something that can no longer be accepted nor tolerated at WV. We know this year, as a senior class, you have worked to change attitudes and beliefs surrounding this end of the year behavior. We appreciate and applaud that - we thank your senior class advisor, Mrs. Damario, your senior teachers, and your senior student leadership. This activity cannot happen - do not put at risk participating in graduation - we don't want that for anyone at all. But we cannot tolerate as a school this negative behavior.
On Monday, after period 4, we are going to celebrate you as a class in the commons. We ask that you join us in that celebration of you - leave a positive legacy at WV, be the first class in several years to make a positive choice and do the right thing. We need this from you.
Good luck on your finals, enjoy your last few days, take the time to say thanks to those teachers who have worked with you, laughed with you, helped you learn and prepared you for your next adventures. You are a great class - help us remember you positively.
West Valley High School Graduation
Cardboard boat offers West Valley students lessons in deadlines, design
FAIRBANKS — A four-member West Valley High School technical writing team confidently launched a small cardboard boat in the deep end of Hamme Pool last week.
Staying close to the pool’s edge, Cody Yordy manned a canoe paddle while Sara Easterling hunkered down behind, keeping a close eye on the boat’s seams, sealed with ordinary plastic packaging tape.
Cheering them on were teammates, Andrew Hawkins and Adam Kurzbard.
Two and a half lengths later, the duo abandoned their soggy ship and the team called the experiment successful, having surpassed their goal of building a two-person boat that could stay above water for a minimum of one pool length.Read full article
