Other announcements:

Also Thursday, High School ASB will be holding a Virtual Valentine’s Day Speed “Dating” Event from 2pm-3:30 pm on Zoom. Students will be separated into two separate Zoom calls: Freshmen/Sophomores & Juniors/Seniors. “Blind Dates” will be placed in random breakout rooms for approximately 5 minutes each. Rooms will shuffle every few minutes so that you get the opportunity to meet several new people. This is a high school only activity and you must use your vvstu account. See the “Class of” Google Classrooms for the more information, the rules, and the link on the day of the event. This was an absolute hit in our ASB trial run, so you don’t want to miss it! Just be polite and respectful and have fun!
