Help Needed to Remove Small Rocks
Wednesday, 19 August 2015 09:36
Construction of the new community golf course in Valentine is in the final stages. They would like to start seeding grass on Monday and need help removing small rocks during these cooler days. The more the better and it would not take that long if they have enough help. The public is welcome to come when they can to help pick up rocks from the fairway and green areas. If no one else is there, just make piles and they will get them picked up. Rocks golf ball size or larger, need to be removed from the fairways and greens.
Everyone should make sure they have a volunteer release formed signed with the city of Valentine.
Any civic organization that could help out with labor during a concentrated effort would be appreciated.
It’s the big push as it is getting closer all the time so all help will be appreciated. Contact Steve Isom for details.

Administrators, teachers and staff had been getting ready for the accreditation review that took place last April for the past five years. The purpose of the accreditation is to ensure continuous school improvement and to maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of all components of our educational system. An external team visited our schools for three days to review different aspects of our systems like; policies, assessments, perceptions, student learning, curriculum, just to name a few. The systems AdvancEd accreditation goes beyond the basic Rule 10 accreditation requirement set for all Nebraska schools. The AdvancEd mission is to, ‘Lead and empower the education community to ensure that all learners realize their full potential.’
