Student Council Day of Caring
Kouts Student Council cabinet members have been spending part of their summers preparing and planning for the upcoming school year.
The start of Senior Year is the beginning of the end, leading up to the shore of adulthood. Hopes of freedom and self-discovery push the Senior Class to the shore, and to their graduation.
With the month of August upon the Washington Township Senators, the students are faced with the anticipation of back to school. With back to school comes a plethora of opportunities: honor roll, the basketball team winning a PCC Championship, or making new friends. The experiences vary from grade level to grade level, but there is one common shared goal between all students which is making this current school year better than the last.
For some students, summer means sleeping in until noon and watching movies all day, but this is not the case for student athletes. Just because these students aren’t in their official season yet, doesn’t mean they stop practicing.
There are a lot of options when it comes to getting active in the community. This goes double for Valpo, in which our schools offer hundreds of chances to make an impact upon the city around you. The majority of our clubs at Valpo High deal with doing something positive for the town and promoting a positive influence on the people within it. That is one of the amazing things about the students at our school; their drive to make Valpo a positive and progressive place to live and grow is never ending.
The end of the school year brings in a lot of things; excitement, fear, uncertainty, and most of all, change. For the 2017 graduating class of Valparaiso High School, all of these things are applicable. Their whole lives up to this point have been spent working their way to the end goal of graduating high school.
Washington Township’s Graduation Class are turning their tassels from right to left as they accomplish their biggest milestone to date. The Class of 2017 started their academic careers thirteen years ago and the time has finally come for them to say goodbye to Washington Township and hello to the new opportunities awaiting them.
Memorial Day Weekend Festivities
The Pleasant Township pool kicked off its 46th season on May 27. Opening day was a bit cloudy and cool for swimmers, but there was plenty of sun the next day. Kids were having a blast swimming, while teenagers were getting a tan when I arrived at the pool. Lifeguards on duty included Nate Anweiler, Grace Birmingham, Serena Birmingham, and Austin Bushore. The lifeguards enjoy the opportunity to get to know the kids on a one-to-one level.
While hosting the Kouts Invite, the Fillies finished in second place.
What's Happening: Softball
Softball is at Boone Grove's top five favorite sports, and is finally here for the season. For years past, the team has done exceptionally well. The team made it to state last year, unfortunately losing 1 - 0. If everything goes well, we may win state this year. All of the women on the team are incredibly efficient when it comes to any job on the field, and they all have the will to win.
The National Honor Society is created from a rock-solid foundation of service and leadership. This is shown throughout the year through Food Drives, Blood Drives, a Senior Citizen Social, and Bake Sales.
