It was an evening of food, music, art, and celebration!

The gym was festive with student art projects, FFA/FCCLA served a delicious pork chop dinner, the choirs sang, and the bands played.

And three retiring educators were recognized for 97 years of combined service at Blue Valley.

Jim McCormick spent his entire career in education at Olsburg Elementary School.

He started out as a teacher and also served as the building principal.

The Board of Education honored Mr. McCormick by changing the name of the school to 
McCormick Elementary.

Patty Nelson taught for 37 years.  35 of those years she taught the business classes at Blue Valley.

Judy Shultz spent 26 of her 40 years of teaching at Randolph Middle School.
