Valley High School Update
Demonstrating the Valley Standard in the 4 A's
October 14, 2022
Greetings Valley students and families,
Tonight is one of the biggest rivalries in Iowa High School football-Valley vs. Dowling Catholic! Gates open at 5:30 PM and we will sit on our usual home bleachers. Students will enter through the West gates as this is Dowling's home football game.
Let's also make sure we are demonstrating stalwart sportsmanship and showing respect to the officials as well our opponents.
As we near the end of the first quarter, please communicate with teachers if there are any misunderstandings or confusion regarding classwork. Our focus is student success and we want to encourage everyone involved in our students' educations to effectively communicate and put our kids in the best possible positions for success.
Enjoy your weekends!
