Since February, more than 300 Valley High School students enrolled in 4-H afterschool classes and enrichment activities, which included a unique set of topics such as podcasting, ukulele, cosmetic science, a zen zone, and a pollinator garden. The program also provided space and staff to assist in tutoring sessions and credit-retrieval programs, such as Ingenuity Lab, to provide more opportunities to prepare students for graduation. The program was held daily for two hours and brought in students of all grade levels, including seniors.
Graduating seniors of the program, their families and Valley High School staff were invited to a special 4-H recognition ceremony May 17. In this senior celebration, the class of 2022 received a certificate for their participation in the programs, along with their official 4-H graduation cords.
