The First Grade class had a friendly competition to see who could build the tallest snowman out of large and small marshmallows and toothpicks. The students planned and designed a snowman ahead of time to help them build. The winning team was able to build their snowman 8 1/2 inches tall. Way to go First Grade!

Parents/Guardians, The number of positive cases in the middle school and the high school has increased rapidly over the past three days. Due to the numbers and the associated close contacts, we have made the decision to move to remote learning for Middle School and High School students only on Thursday 1/13/22 and Friday 1/14/22. PreK through 5th students will remain in person. We will have nursing staff on duty in the morning from 7:15 AM to 7:45 AM as normal. Any student PreK - 5 that has been determined as a close contact and opted into COVID testing will continue to test. If your MS or HS student has developed symptoms and would like to come in to be tested, we would also welcome them. Otherwise, students on remote that are close contacts are not expected to test. Buses will run as normal for PreK - 5 students. For students on remote, lunch will be offered but students must email Brenda Lloyd, brenda.lloyd@vfalls338.com, requesting a meal by 8:30 AM so the kitchen has time to prepare the additional meals. Lunches for remote students will need to be picked up at noon at the elementary entrance. All practices and school-sponsored activities are suspended through Sunday 1/13. The board is waiting on further guidance from the Kansas State Department of Education and KDHE on "Test to Play and Test to Learn". We hope to have this information later this week. After it is received, there will be a special board meeting to address the recommended changes from the CDC and KDHE. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate in reaching out to Ms. Grey, Mr. Morgan, or myself with questions. Respectfully, Dr. Hanzlicek

The Valley Falls Board of Education has contracted with KASB to assist with the search for a Superintendent who will take over for Dr. Hanzlicek upon her departure on June 30, 2022. In an effort to make the best possible selection, the Board would like to include as part of the search process a way for stakeholders to offer their thoughts on this very important position and process. Click here https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/USD338 to complete the survey. The surveys ask participants to share their ideas about the major issues facing the district in the next several years; the personal and professional qualities they believe are important for the superintendent, and the performance expectations they believe would mark that person's success. All responses are entirely anonymous and are delivered directly to the KASB search facilitator. Thank you,

The 2nd Graders did a unit on Snowmen this week. We read stories, made predictions, reviewed math skills, and wrote and edited a writing project on snowmen. Then, we finished the week today with a STEAM project. We made fake snow to construct our mini snowmen. Snow much fun! ❄️☃️
