Attention: Theatre Seniors

  • It’s time to start working on your senior bio for the Spring Play program.

The most relevant thing to include is any theatre-related information -- other plays you've acted in, any dance or music performances you've been involved with. You can also mention any other activities that are especially important to you -- playing on sports teams, performing in instrumental or vocal ensembles, community volunteering, etc. The bio should be pretty short, probably no more than 50-100 words. You can ask the director, or some more experienced student actor, for more guidance.

All bios should be typed and given to Ms. Woods in the Main Office or (preferably) emailed to kim.woods@district196.org

Please send a .jpeg file of your senior photo to include in the program as well. This must be an attachment, rather than an embedded photo in an email.

All submissions must be received by April 10 to be included in the program.

  • Mr. McManus’ spring trimester driving calendar is posted in room 162.

These anonymous surveys are also available to be filled out anytime throughout the year on the Apple Valley Athletics General Information Homepage and provide valuable feedback to our coaching staff and Athletic Director as a part of the annual reflection process for each coach and program. If you have a specific suggestion or concerns you would like to see addressed it is always recommended that you and/or your student athlete connect directly with the coach for the most immediate and individualized response. Thanks!

Join us next Monday, March 16th @ 7 pm AVHS Community Room!

  • The Class of 2020 all-night party takes place on June 6th after graduation at The Big Thrill Factory in Minnetonka and at AVHS, and includes food, games, prizes, and lots of great entertainment like casino games, bowling and more! The entire event is parent volunteer run, and cannot happen without you! A HUGE THANK YOU goes out to those who have already signed up to volunteer. Here's how you can help:

1) BUY YOUR SENIOR'S TICKET: Hurry! The ticket price goes up the longer you wait (the cost is currently $85)! There is a reduced cost option for families who are part of the free/reduced lunch program. The registration form can be found in the main office, on the AVHS website under the Senior Party link, on FB (https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=108837987124034&ref=br_rs), or Twitter (AVHS Class of 2020 Senior Party @Avhs2020).

We need donations of all kinds: cash, prizes, and BOXERS! The Class of 2012 started the fun tradition of "Bowling for Boxers", where the kids win a pair of boxers as a prize for getting a strike! We need donations of new boxers of all shapes, sizes and colors! Please contact us if you have donations of any kind, or there is a collection bin for boxers in the AVHS main office as well.

Please contact Mary Berg - gamed1967@gmail.com or Cyndee Elumba - melumba@gmail.com if you have any questions or would like to volunteer! Please let us know if any parents work for Flint Hills Resources (they offer a donation to senior parties for their employees' kids).

POTPOURRI

  • Community Education Classes:

Understanding the Adolescent Brain: Tools and Tips for Responding to Risky Teen Behavior
Explore how experiences and behaviors, along with outside influences, help develop the adolescent brain. Subjects such as “normal” developmental stages, stressors, adverse experiences, risk-taking, and how adolescents go about making choices will be discussed. There will be a highly interactive activity on communication and boundary skills. We will also offer tips and potential solutions for resolving any presenting problems such as substance use, mental illness, stigma, vaping, etc.
Tue | Mar 10 | 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. | Free! | BHMS

LIKE Screening
Explore the impact of social media on our lives. See LIKE, an IndieFlix original documentary. Technology is a tool. It’s here to stay and social platforms are a place to connect, share and care, but what’s really happening? Are we addicted? How do we stop? Where do we start? What do we need to know? By understanding the effects of technology and social media on the brain, on our lives and on our civilization, we can learn how to navigate it more safely together. The goal of this film is to inspire people of all ages, especially kids, to self-regulate. It’s not about blame. It’s about looking in the mirror and empowering ourselves to create balance in our lives and to learn to be there for each other. This event is offered in cooperation with the Dakota County Safe and Drug Free School Coordinators and the Dakota County Healthy Communities Collaborative. The Resource Fair will be open before and after the presentation. The presentation starts at 6:30 p.m.
