Thank you Forrestville Valley from Mr. Heinz

I just wanted to take a quick moment and thank everyone in the community for making the last week for the class of 2016 a memorable one. We are very fortunate to have so many people who care enough to get involved in our Baccalaureate Service, Honors Night, and Commencement Ceremony. These important events helped highlight the wonderful accomplishments of the class of 2016. The Baccalaureate Service was well-attended and featured Pastor Jake Ritzema from Grace Valley Christian Reformed, Pastor Matthew Smith from German Valley United Methodist, and Pastor Gary Branam from Baileyville Baptist. At our Honors Night, we were able to honor our Seniors with $338,000 in scholarships for their Post-Secondary Plans. A majority of those scholarships were from local families and generous businesses who continue to look for ways to stay active in the Forrestville Valley School District. 

On May 15th, we held our Commencement Ceremony for the class of 2016. The entire ceremony was done with class and focused on our Seniors. The speeches, awards, and presentation of diplomas were treated with the utmost respect and dignity our Seniors deserved. Graduation is a big day for our Seniors and I wanted to thank everyone for their help in making this year’s Commencement Ceremony one of the most dignified! Thank you all for making Forrestville Valley a great place to work and live, and to the Class of 2016 may you always remember your Cardinal Family.

Thinking Red and Black!
