Junior High Poster Contest Winner:  Mikayla Harris

See the other winners and submissions at the show!


West Valley High School students have come together to put on the play “Alice in Wonderland” with over 80 5th grade - 8th grade students as cast and crew. 


After spending most of the 2016-2017 school year writing the script for her own version of “Alice in Wonderland,” senior Haley Biegler gathered a crew of 20 high school students to help her put on this amazing production. The high school students composed the music, choreographed the dances, and designed the lighting, sound, and set. They also made the costumes and set and learned the ins and outs of publicity, holding a poster contest.


We’re so proud that these experienced high school students have given younger students the opportunity to be on stage while learning the how to put on a production firsthand.


Says Ruth Veselka, their advisor, “I have consistently been impressed, and at times truly blown away by their generosity, kindness, and creativity in working with these talented young actors and crew.”


Come see this fantastic production for all ages: 

May 5th at 7pm, and May 6th at 2pm and 7pm at the West Valley Junior High Auditorium. Tickets are 5 dollars.

The Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic Los Niños Bien Educados program has started at Summitview Elementary. This parenting program was written for monolingual and bilingual Spanish speaking parents. It is a culturally-specific skill-building course with an emphasis on positive discipline and communication. The classes are free, and free childcare and snacks are provided for infants to children 11 years of age.


The instructors are very experienced and professional, and it is an amazing opportunity for migrant and ELL families in our district. At the end of each session, parents receive a book!

The program will run for six weeks, on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6PM to 9PM.
