CHRISTMAS BREAK DECEMBER 20 - 31
Valley View Student-Athletes Help Spread Christmas Cheer
Valley View student-athletes are making sure that one family has a merry Christmas. The students rallied together to purchase gifts and collect donations for a family of four and delivered the items to Abigail's Arms. All together the students delivered 39 bags of Christmas gifts and an envelope of gift cards. We would like to thank all the families who donated to help this family have a Great Christmas! Go Eagles!

Meet Gary Schnitker
I am Gary Schnitker, the Ag Mechanics and FFA adviser. This school year is my 20th year teaching and my first year at Valley View. I received my teaching degree from Tarleton State University.
My wife, Erin, is a Dyslexia teacher at S&S Elementary School, and my daughters Starlyn and Emma attend school there also. I enjoy showing livestock with my family and watching my girls play basketball and volleyball. My daughters exhibit hogs and goats.
I am excited about teaching at Valley View and have enjoyed my first semester here. The students are hard-working and interested in learning.

Onstott's Design Wins Local Christmas Contest
The 4th-grade students participated in a contest for the Valley View Chamber of Commerce. The contest asked each student to design a Christmas-themed window for our Valley View Square. We had lots of talent within the entries, but Korbey Onstott's design was selected for a store-front window. We are so proud of her!
