The Bureau Valley National Honor Society is partnering with the Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center to hold a blood drive on Wednesday, February 25th from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., in the high school gym. You must be 17 years old to donate blood, or 16 years old with a parental consent form. You must also weigh at least 110 pounds. Did you know giving blood takes about an hour and the difference it can make for patients who receive life saving transfusions can last a lifetime! To schedule an appointment call 815-445-4004.
The Bureau Valley High School Drama department has been working on our Spring Musical James and the Giant Peach. This musical is based on the book by Roald Dahl—who also wrote such fantastic stories as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, and the BFG. James and the Giant Peach stars a boy, James Henry Trotter, sent to live with people who are determined to make a tragic life even worse. James meets other people who truly love and care for him. Even though these “people” are actually giant insects who live in a giant peach, James finds that anyone can come together to create their own loving family together. James and the giant peach is classic Roald Dahl. The story teaches powerful lessons—and has great fun while doing so!
James and the Giant Peach shows March 8th and 9th at 6:00 p.m. in the BVHS auditorium. Tickets for the show can be purchased on the night of the performance. Tickets for adults are $10. Tickets for students are $7. Admission for Pre-K children is free! Free-will donations going to support of the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America will be accepted during our intermission snack bar. You really will get to take a bite out of something sweet—and give money to help an even sweeter cause. Doors open at 5:15 and we hope to see you there.
