We had an amazing three days at the MI DECA State competition with 45 great students competing in 20 different events. The growth and learning we saw happening before my eyes was a-m-a-z-i-n-g. 13 students were invited to compete at ICDC and 30 additional medals were received.

They also help in developing education policies and work with teams to support crisis interventions. Thank you, HVS social workers! #HVSProud
A group of Junior Optimist Club members attended a two day training on the topic of peer resistance. This amazing group of 10 students are in the process of visiting fifth grade classrooms around Huron Valley Schools. They spend approximately one hour talking with the fifth graders about how to resist pressure and say “NO!” in a variety of different dangerous and destructive situations, such as drinking and vaping. These Junior Optimist Club members have enjoyed working with the fifth graders & are excited about being a positive influence!
This past weekend, the Huron Valley Alliance Winter Guard competed in their second national regional at the WGI Flint Regional competition. The group had another strong showing, finishing in 5th place in finals with a 75.97. The group has made great strides this year and is growing every week. Their next event is on March 20th at Troy Athens HS.

Huron Valley Marching Band new member information night, March 15th, 7pm in the LHS Band Room. Be a part of a great new tradition in Huron Valley!
Be sure to check out the February issue of The Milford Messenger, found on the Milford High School website.
This past weekend, at both LHS and MHS, our band programs pulled off a double-header by hosting two major invitational competitions at our schools on the same day! The guard show for the MIchigan Color Guard Circuit was at Milford, while the drum line show for the Michigan Alliance for Performing Arts was at Lakeland. Our band programs came together to make this all happen (first time anyone has done this that we are aware of). Besides two very successful shows events, our Huron Valley Alliance WInter Guard finished 3rd in their class after an amazing run, scoring a 66.47. The drum line, Huron Valley Percussion, had a great run as well, and finished 2nd in their class with a 68.45.
Special shout out to all the custodial staff, athletic directors and our trainers at both schools, administration, and everyone who helped make the shows possible. I am extremely proud of all our band parents, families, our kids, our band alumni, and everyone who helped make the weekend a success.
Coming into the season we knew we had solid crew of boys that could do great things this season and knew we had a good chance to win states this year. After the first race of the season we won in dominating fashion, I really knew this team was destined for a great season. During the second race of the season the boys set a league record winning 28 of 30 heats in one race. We ended winning our last 3 races going undefeated for the season bringing home the King of the Hill Championship for the East League.
We went into the state qualifiers undefeated and knew we had a target on our back, after the season we had. But the boys came into the race with the confidence knowing they could continue winning and that what they did. They ended up winning the state qualifier by 137 points punching their ticket to the state finals.
From Coach Jesionowski-
We came into the State Finals on high note, having an undefeated season and knew we were one of the favorites to win it all. We knew if we raced consistent we could win the whole thing. We in fact did that and all the boys never finished outside the top 3 in all there heats and we ended up winning the State Championship by 179 points and finished the season undefeated.
We're sending a great big 'Thank You!' to all HVS bus drivers and transportation staff today. Not only do they travel a combined 7,000 miles every day to get our students safely to and from school, field trips and sporting events, they also go above and beyond to support HVS families with their Angel Tree project every year. #HVSProud
