2014 Deer Valley University
Have you ever wondered how your school district works?
Deer Valley University can answer that question and many more. DVU is a series of free workshops for parents, community members, and staff in the Deer Valley Unified School District that will provide participants with a basic understanding of how the school district is managed and decisions are made. Learn how the Governing Board works … decipher and decode a school budget … crack the code on education acronyms … sample goodies from our food services … You will learn about your district from boundaries to budget and more!
This class will meet in the Governing Board Room at the District Office from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. for five consecutive Thursdays: March 27, April 3, April 10, April 17 and April 24, 2014. You may register by calling Kim Redding at (623) 445-5016 or email@example.com.
| The Jaguar Pride received a rating of Superior with Distinction at NAU Band Day this past Saturday. We were the only band at this competition that earned this rating! A rating of Superior can be compared to an 'Exceeding' score on the AIMS test. A Superior with Distinction means that we 'Exceeded' in all six adjudicated areas (Music-2 judges, Visual, General Effect, Colorguard, and Percussion). Because of the band's recent success, we are the #2 ranked band in Division 1. Divisions are decided by total number of band members that perform. This is our first year in Division 1 and we are the smallest band in the division - 97 members. Our division includes bands that are 154 members (SDOHS) all he way to 190+ (Corona del Sol high school). The Jaguar Pride can hold their own!|

We had the second most amount of students in the show choir, and we had 2 kids make the All-State Jazz choir. There was not a school that had more than 2 in that choir. I am so glad we are able to represent Boulder Creek with these numbers. It is a reflection of the school and the talent it possesses.
