Seventh Annual After Prom Party
*Sponsored by Hoosic Valley Community Partners*

After PromFebruary 18, 2017 - Historically, the timeframe between prom season and graduation sees a dramatic increase in student incidents. Seven years ago, the Community Partners acknowledged that students who didn’t want their prom night to end at 11:00 had limited choices. Did you Know that on a typical Prom Weekend 48 American teenagers are killed in vehicles and 5,202 are injured - 40% of the deaths are alcohol related. With this in mind, the Community Partners saw the need to offer our students a safe, fun alternative to traditional after prom activities. Please consider joining in the planning, fundraising and chaperoning of the 2017 After Prom Party.

The Community Partners will be meeting most Wednesday evenings at 7:00 in room 33 of the high school, starting on February 15, 2017. Updates will be e-mailed and posted on the school website. Their immediate need is help with fundraising. They have a long list of past donors to approach. The more volunteers, the shorter the list of stops/calls each person will need to make. Click here if you'd like to make a donation.

As students graduate the members of the committee tend to change. Active members that no longer have students in school become less involved, which means, every year we need new volunteers from the younger grade levels - this also helps to bring in new ideas that keep the After Prom fun and exciting for the students. While planning and working this event is very time consuming, it is also very rewarding. Please help provide this safe, fun event for our kids. You can contact the CommunityPartners at hvcommunitypartners@gmail.com.


February 17, 2017 - At the February Character Counts assembly, our Elementary School celebrated all the wonderful friendships that are made in school. Our students did a great job giving examples what makes a good friend. Click here for the list of awards. Click here for more photos


Career Fair - Presenters Needed

February 3, 2017 - We are looking for volunteers to help with our High School Career Fair on Wednesday, April 12. The Fair begins at 8:00 a.m. and will end about 11:00 a.m. The students, (approximately 10-30 per session), will rotate among the presenters for each of the five sessions, approximately 25 minutes/session. Any insight you can provide our young people about your career will be helpful. Students generally want to know about the required tasks for a specific job, the training/education needed, necessary personality traits, work conditions, opportunities for advancement, salary, etc. Of course, any type of demonstration or “show and tell” activity always peaks their interest.

If you willing to help us out and spark the interest of the future leaders in your field, contact Mrs. Martyn - email or 753-4432 ext. 5060 (Voice Mail) by Wednesday, March 15.
