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.
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.

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 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 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.

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.
Be the Light (BTL)
Sponsor: Nicole LaRue
Be The Light (BTL) is a Christian club designed to research and to learn the knowledge and wisdom of God. We will explore God's word through the book of life, The Bible. Also, The Strong's Exhaustive Concordance Of The Bible will be used as a resource as well. (Matthew 4:4 - Jesus said, "Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”)
The purpose of the club is to learn and be the light for others to see through our actions. Our job as Christian leaders will be to be the light onto others paths so they can see our acts as followers of Christ.
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.
