Today is Viking Pride day and all students wearing spirit wear or blue and white should receive 2 Valhalla dollars.


Patients with cancer have all different types of squad members all around them.  Are you part of the Hero Squad yet? If you have donated to Pennies for Patients or raised money online, then you are part of this amazing team of ordinary people who can come together to do extraordinary things.  Because today is the last day we have school this week, Builders Club students will be coming by to collect and count this week's donations. We can't wait to see what you have accomplished this week! Teachers, please collect today's Pennies for Patients donations, and be ready to hand your bag full of change to your Builders Club rep for counting!


Mr. Dingman would like to thank the over 100 students who came to the drama club auditions to try out for a part in our spring production of "The Hallmarks of Horror " or to sign up for technical backstage work. ALL students who auditioned for an acting part should check the call-back list which is posted outside room E-12, and if your name is on that list, you need to attend call-back auditions TODAY, Thursday, 3:00-5:00 in the MPR.  If you auditioned for an acting part and your name is on the callback list, but you cannot or do not attend callbacks, you need to speak to Mr. Dingman or you may be dropped from consideration for an acting role in our production, Students who signed up for backstage tech crew do NOT need to attend callbacks, but please come to the first technical theatre meeting next week, on Wednesday, 3-4:30 pm in the MPR

Welcome to another Pennies for Patients announcement with informative and exciting information about money!  Did you know the number 13 is represented on the dollar bill several times? It's in the 13 arrows, 13 leaves on the olive branch, 13 stars, and the 13 stripes on the shield.  That doesn't mean that dollars are unlucky - it stands for the original 13 colonies! Last year, students across the country raised over 26 million dollars in Pennies for Patients campaigns all over America!  But The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Pennies for Patients is about more than just pennies (or dollars) - It's about finding a cure! Thanks to schools like ours, LLS is supporting lifesaving research and making cures happen!  Thanks for being such an awesome hero squad! And, Teachers, if you haven't already, please collect today's pennies for Patients donations from your HR students.

Good morning from Builders Club - bringing you today's Pennies for Patients random factoid.  Did you know that U.S. paper money isn't made out of paper? It's actually cloth! In Ben Franklin's day, people repaired torn dollar bills with a needle and thread!  Do you know what denomination Ben Franklin's picture is on? (pause for dramatic effect...) He's on the $100 bill. One Hundred Dollars (like the amount brought in last week by one of Mrs. Suffolk's amazing students) in donations to the Leukemia and Lymphoma society helps to fund the First Connection Program, a peer-to-peer program that matches newly diagnosed cancer patients and their families with trained volunteers.  Way to go Valley View Heros for making that happen! Ok homeroom teachers - it's time to collect today's donations for Pennies for Patients!


Don’t' miss your last chance for open auditions for the spring play! We need actors and backstage tech crew from all grades for our production of: The Hallmarks of Horror (A Comedy)"  Open auditions TODAY from 3 to 5 in the MPR, no experience or preparation is needed. 

Actor callback auditions will be held on Thursday. Please attend IF your name is on the callback list which will be posted outside room E-12 on Wednesday.

See Mr. Dingman in room E-12 or any drama club officer with any drama-related questions. See you at auditions!
