June Newsletter

Special Edition

We don't typically do a newsletter at this time of year, but we do have a little news to share with our patrons. The next newsletter you will receive will be the Summer Registration directions. Registration Days are August 5, 6 and 7. However we will again be offering the totally online registration process that we rolled out last year. Many of you saved the trip and lines by using that option, hopefully it worked for everyone, I know the secretaries appreciate how that streamlines their work in August. Look for the Registration letter right around July 25th.

Zion Lutheran and Fayette Community Church to host summer lunch program

With the help of the NorthEast Iowa Food Bank, and some very generous volunteers in West Union and Fayette, students in our district now have an option for healthy lunches every weekday during the summer in Fayette and West Union.


The Summer Food Service Program is an extension of the USDA's school lunch programs, aimed at providing nutritious lunches for students who may not normally have a nutritious lunch every day when they don't go to school. Anyone under the age of 18 is welcome to stop in at the Fayette Elementary Building or Zion Lutheran Church, Monday through Friday to have a free lunch. Any children under 18 are welcome between 11:30 to 12:30 in West Union and 11:30 to 12:00 in Fayette for a free lunch.


While we are not providing hot lunches this year, our hope is to grow the program so that it is capable of serving hot food in the future. Our grant is supported by your attendance, so come on down and grab your lunch.

Emergency Operations Drill July 13

On Saturday morning, July 13, North Fayette Valley in conjunction with Fayette County Emergency Management will be hosting a live action Active Shooter drill. Starting at 8:00 a.m. the high school grounds will be closed to the public in order to allow law enforcement, fire departments and other EMS services to conduct this drill.


We are looking for volunteers of school staff and students to act as victims in this drill, student volunteers must be 8th grade or older. Please contact the Central Office by phone or email to volunteer. Deadline to volunteer will be June 21. We need 100 or more volunteers to make this as real as possible for the emergency services. Some volunteers will be acting as injured and will need to arrive at 6:00 for make-up and prosthetic injury application. This drill is an important part of our safety and security program. If you have questions, please contact me at dwillhite@nfv.k12.ia.us or 563-422-3851

Congratulations Graduates

It was very disappointing that I was not able to attend graduation services for the class of 2019. Unfortunately, there was a death in the family, back home in Illinois, with the funeral on Friday. However, the Graduation of these graduates was the culmination of a great year of school at NFV. These seniors provided outstanding leadership and commitment that led to some great athletic moments and outstanding performances in fine arts.


But as to our focus, their academic achievements were not overlooked. High ACT scores and dozens of scholarships earned on Awards Night mark the end of a fine group of TigerHawks. Whether they become Hawkeyes, Cyclones, or Panthers; welders, nurses or carpenters, we have confidence in their future successes.


We are Proud to Be NFV and turning out graduates that are reflecting our vision statement, "Well rounded, engaged citizens impacting the future."
