Year End 2014-2015
CONGRATULATIONS to our 131 River Valley High School graduates! The 2015 graduates earned $880,000 in scholarships.They led the school by example, with hard work and dedication. It is with great pride that we acknowledge them and thank them for the years of study and energy they put in to reach this day. All our best wishes go with them as they face their future with skill, enthusiasm, and intelligence.
This is also a good time to thank our alumni for setting the bar so high. I hope you will always find ways to connect with River Valley, to be part of the RV community, and become active members of our alumni group. Be part of the proud Viking tradition!
This school year has been one of wonderful accomplishments. I want to publicly thank every student, parent, teacher, staff member, and administrator for the sacrifices made, hours of work completed, exciting events organized, and celebrations held this year. I am so proud of the education provided here at River Valley, educating the whole child, and preparing them to love learning all their lives.
Despite our budget constraints, aging buses, older technology, and limited elective courses, River Valley Local School District encourages and expects our youth to be accomplished students, passionate musicians and artists, and competitive athletes. It may not be easy, but it is important, and we will always put our kids first.
I personally invite the community, alumni, faculty, and staff to continue to be involved, and to work together to strengthen the traditions of the past. As we look forward to a new school year, I urge you to keep in mind that here in the Valley, we are family. Have a wonderful summer.
See you in August!
Mr. James P. Peterson
