A Letter from the VCHS Principal – December 2022

Valley Catholic High School is coming off a month of celebrations! Our students are excelling in and outside of the classroom.  

After six performances across two consecutive weekends, our drama department wrapped up the fall production of “Twelfth Night.” Dedicated students showcased their theatrical talents through this modern Shakespearean adaptation. Students wowed the audience with their wit and humor and the hours of rehearsal, set building, and other preparation were validated through an incredible production. The drama department is now focusing on the spring musical. Mark your calendars for the end of February because you will not want to miss our talented students performing “Mary Poppins.”

Athletically, the Valiants made their mark in fall sports. Valley Catholic High School is the STATE CHAMPIONS in both girls’ soccer and volleyball. The girls had successful seasons topped off with fierce competition and excellent sportsmanship at the state tournaments. Being a state champion is a huge accomplishment and the VCHS community is proud of both teams who now hold this prestigious honor. 

Our cross-country teams were also very successful at their state tournament. We had two top ten finishers in the boys’ 3A race and a top 3 finisher for girls. As for team placement, our girls ended the season with a 5th place finish and the boys placed 2nd

Speaking of celebrations, the student body at Valley Catholic High School is getting into the Christmas spirit with our annual food drive. We have been busy raising money through weekly food drive auctions, allowing us to send an additional $200 to $250 of financial assistance to each of the 20 families we support. Students are also busy planning their gingerbread house designs and decorating for the annual Christmas Cheer event on Dec. 15.  

Through all our fun, festive activities, we are focusing on Advent – directing our hearts and minds to Jesus’s birth. It is a time for our families and community to remember the true meaning of Jesus’ birth through prayer, reflections, special music, and good deeds.

Wishing everyone a blessed Christmas season,

Dr. Sara Bruins
