Clubs & Organizations

We at Valley School District encourage all students to participate in extracurricular activities. We believe these activities help build social, teamwork, and leadership skills. If you are interested in joining one of our established clubs, please contact the sponsor listed below for meeting times.

Organizations

National Honor Society
Sponsor: Ashley Jones

We established the Valley High School Honor Society to recognize outstanding high school students who demonstrate excellence in academics, leadership, community service, and character. Our chapter not only recognizes these students, but we challenge them to continue toward their dreams with scholarship offerings for college.

Future Business Leaders of America
Sponsor: Jamie Warden

Welcome to the largest and oldest student business organization in the world! As part of this organization, we learn about and participate in leadership conference and business competitions, putting our knowledge to work in practical ways.

FCCLA
Sponsor: Jarah Politte

Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America exists to promote personal growth and leadership development through family and consumer sciences education. With the family as its central focus, FCCLA members address societal issues through creative skills, problem solving, decision making, fundraising, and building interpersonal communication skills.

FFA
Sponsor: Marty Yount

FFA is an intracurricular student organization for those interested in agriculture and leadership. It is one of the three components of agricultural education.

What do the letters FFA stand for?
The official name of the organization is the National FFA Organization.

The letters FFA stand for Future Farmers of America. These letters are a part of our history and our heritage that will never change. But FFA is not just for students who want to be production farmers; FFA also welcomes members who aspire to careers as teachers, doctors, scientists, business owners, and more. For this reason, the name of the organization was updated in 1988 after a vote of national convention delegates to reflect the growing diversity and new opportunities in the industry of agriculture.

Today, the National FFA Organization remains committed to the individual student, providing a path to achievement in premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.

FFA continues to help the next generation rise up to meet those challenges by helping its members to develop their own unique talents and explore their interests in a broad range of agricultural career pathways. So today, we are still the Future Farmers of America. But, we are the future biologists, future chemists, future veterinarians, future engineers, and future entrepreneurs of America, too.

HOSA 
Sponsor: Trina Pritchett-Barton

HOSA stands for health occupation student association, and it is a club intended for any student who wishes to pursue a career in the medical field. The club is mostly tied to our PLTW classes but that does not limit students who wish to join that are not in the PLTW classes. It is a national club that can follow you into college and students compete at a local, regional, and national levels. 

Student Council
Sponsor: Rebecca Lawson

Student council engages our student body through hands-on democracy and leadership training. Elected student leaders help share ideas, interests, and student concerns with school administrators. Student council members organize school-wide activities, social events, and community projects to increase student morale and bonding.

Yearbook
Sponsor: Jennifer Juliette

In yearbook, we tell your story through pictures and text. Delving into all aspects of publishing, we work all year to create a memory book detailing all the fun events and people that make high school so unforgettable.

Drama Club
Sponsor: Wendy Barron

The drama club will meet to learn about acting, play production, and stage work with the hopes of offering productions for our school and community. This club provides an opportunity for our students to practice public speaking and learn about theatre.

Art Club
Sponsor: Kathy Grajek

The Valley R-6 art club consists of junior high and high school students who display a love of art. The club meets after school on a regular basis to make art and work on projects for art competitions. We volunteer time to the community for art related projects, painting murals, and arts advocacy. Our club members enjoy open studio time to hone our artistic skills and fellowship with other art-minded students. The art club works very hard to raise funds so that we can take trips to broaden our artistic horizons beyond what is possible in the school setting.

Science Club
Sponsor: Trina Pritchett-Barton

The purpose of this club is to promote and encourage interest in science by supporting learners’ enthusiasm, to bridge the gap between formal educations, gain a more comprehensive knowledge of science, and to make the study of science more interesting. We hope to popularize scientific consciousness and scientific culture among the youth.

Fundraising

The principal must approve all fundraising projects. Only two fundraisers may be planned per year, per organization. All other necessary funds must come from student dues or community sponsorships. The Junior class may be exempted from this ruling if their fundraising efforts are directed towards prom.
