American Education Week, November 17-21, celebrates public education and honors individuals who are making a difference in ensuring every child receives a quality education. Blue Valley Schools has more than 3,000 staff members striving to provide an Education Beyond Expectations for every Blue Valley student. Thank you, Blue Valley staff members, for all you do to help students achieve unprecedented academic success and unparalleled personal growth.
Nearly 150 Blue Valley patrons, staff members, administrators, students, business partners and community members gathered at Hilltop Campus for the Strategic Planning Community Forum to begin initial discussion and creation of Blue Valley Schools' third strategic plan, Vision 2020. Attendees discussed what the district has done well over the years, where the district needs to improve, what kinds of skills they want Blue Valley graduates to have and more. Ideas and issues raised in the discussions at this forum will play an integral role in the creation of the district's 2015-2020 strategic plan. To stay up-to-date with the strategic planning process, follow #Vision2020 on Twitter and Facebook.
Kindergarten students at Blue River Elementary take time to give thanks to our soldiers and celebrate Veterans Day by drawing pictures and writing notes for a soldier overseas. Students will send notes and candy, along with parent donated recreational equipment such as basketballs, footballs and soccer balls to a Blue Valley graduate and his troop stationed in Kuwait.
