The Spring Valley JROTC continued its streak of winning competitions statewide. Albeit, known for its prowess in drill competitions, the Vikings showed their class in a new area for them–academics! The four-person team (Jacob Stoll, Stephanie Babinec, Sarah Hedley, Rachel Canizares) competed against three other schools virtually in the Ashley Ridge Fierce Fox Combined Meet on Friday, 12 Feb. Spring Valley bested the other schools in a range of questions from ACT/SAT, JROTC drill and customs, and current events. They are still awaiting the results of their bid for the finals of the National JROTC Academic Bowl competition. 
Congratulations to the Spring Valley JROTC Academic Bowl Team!

THOUGHTFUL THURSDAY’S

On February 25th we begin our first session of a 5-part virtual series Money Now for College.  As a parent, the reality of paying for college becomes more and more real each year. Currently, the College Board reports that a “moderate” college budget for an in-state public college averaged $24,061 per year. A moderate budget at a private college averaged $47,831 per year. Yikes! We hope you will join us for our 30-minute sessions from 6-6:30 p.m. Here’s the registration link please see the flyer above.
