School Reunion

The Valley Springs School Reunion is held the first Saturday in August in the cafetorium.

The annual Valley Springs School Reunion will be held Saturday, August 5, on the school campus.  Alumni, friends and former teachers are encouraged to attend.
Activities will include an open house beginning at 2pm.  Attendees can enjoy self-guided tours throughout the campus.  Fives rooms in Old Main will be set aside for the decade reunions - 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, and 2000's.  Signs will be posted on the four outside doors of Old Main designating the rooms.  Light refreshments will be available
At 3:30pm, the class of 1966 will be inducted into the Half-Century Club.  The induction will be held in the High School Cafeteria.  All graduates through 1965 are encouraged to attend the induction to welcome the class of '66.
The day will be topped off with a banquet in the High School Cafeteria beginning at 6pm.  The meal will be catered by Western Sizzlin of Harrison.  Cost of the meal will be $15.00.  Payment can be made at the door, but it is very important to make reservations so adequate food can be prepared.  Valley Springs diplomas will be issued to any former Valley Springs student who was unable to complete high school because they were called to serve in the military.  Anyone with knowledge of a person who fits into this category is encouraged to contact Superintendent Judy Green at 429-9205 with this information.  Attendees will also hear progress on the School Foundation, achievements of Valley Springs students, and planned changes on the school campus.  There will be memorial recognition of all alumni who have passed away during the last year
To complete the night, door prizes will be given to the oldest and youngest alumni attending, the alumni traveling the most distance to attend, the person present who has attended the most school reunions, the person present who has had the most generations of Valley Springs graduates, and for answering school trivia questions.
