Total Access Lunch
When we reach August, it seems school is right around the corner. I hope everyone has had a chance to enjoy all that summer has to offer and will continue to enjoy the remaining summer months.
We have been busy with numerous projects this summer. The elementary classroom wing at Delhi has been painted, and new carpet has been installed. Students and staff will notice a nice update in the classrooms and hallways.
The big project this summer is the bleachers, and I am happy to say that great progress has been made. The home bleachers are constructed and work is now being done on the pressbox. As you can see in the photo below, there is a deck that leads directly onto the bleachers, which make them very accessible for everyone.
The visitor bleachers are completed, along with a new sidewalk leading to the bleachers that is handicapped accessible. This will be a nice and safe set of bleachers for our visiting fans.
We also completed asphalt project on the visitor parking lot across the street from the school. This looks great and will provide a safe and organized space for students and fans to park.
We are also working on the installation of a new boiler in Earlville and the replacement of some sidewalks in need of repair.
Maquoketa Valley welcomes John Grimm, who started as a maintenance and transportation director following the retirement of Doug Steger. Doug is working for a few more weeks to introduce John to the position and to help complete all of our projects. I want to thank Doug for his many years of service to Maquoketa Valley.
We are looking forward to the return of the students and another great school year at Maquoketa Valley. Enjoy the remaining weeks with your families before school begins.

Due to affiliation costs and duplication of recognition, MV will discontinue its membership to the National Honor Society and will instead begin a service program for students. Students will be made aware of service opportunities, given opportunities to lead service projects, held responsible for tracking their service hours and accomplishments, and recognized publicly at graduation (indication in the program and by a cord/medal).
The goal is to recognize students who have contributed to their community or school by volunteering their time and talents. An increasing number of scholarship applications require applicants to list service experiences. Additionally, volunteer time often leads to employment and future educational opportunities and helps students understand the connection between school, work, and community.
What counts as “service”? Service for this purpose is defined through the voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without personal compensation or classroom credit. Examples include coaching youth teams, helping at church or community events, managing/keeping stats/video recording an athletic team, setting up for speech or FFA contest or assisting at contest, working on set for drama, volunteering at the public library or fire department, mentoring, serving as a teacher assistant, etc.
This program will begin this summer, and students will be phased into it:
For further information, please contact Diane Temple at email@example.com.
