How to Spend Summer

May 24th, 2010 No comments

Were all lucky to live here in Colorado because of the great things to do! Here are some great summer ideas!. Go boating, wake boarding, swimming, or whatever it is you like to do to stay cool! Take a hike; there are many great areas very close to Arvada that are great for hiking such as Red Rocks, Coal Creek, and Dinosaur Ridge. Go see some concerts, with venues like Red Rocks Amphitheater, The Gothic, and The Philmore we have amazing shows playing all the time. Go putt putting, see a movie, or go bowling. These are all great ways to spend time with friends or even with a date! Go for a picnic, a bike ride, or just a long afternoon drive, these are great ways to slow down life and just enjoy the moment. Lastly just be sure to surround yourself with the people you love and never waste a moment!

Senior Destinations

May 24th, 2010 No comments

Many seniors choose to stay in Colorado because, lets face it who doesn’t want to be close to home? Colorado university in Boulder, Colorado State University in Fort Collins, and the University of Northern of Colorado in Greeley are 3 of the most common school choice for this years senior class. Many however are choosing to go out of state to study. Many are headed for Arizona, Utah, Nebraska and even as far as Maryland, North Dakota and Florida. We cannot forget to salute the brave students who are joining the military next year, as we are represented by all 4 branches of the military. Wherever these seniors i headed i wish all of them good luck and tell them to shoot for the stars.

Thank You Nate Jurney

May 22nd, 2010 No comments

Nate Jurney went home yesterday. His long fight with cancer is over. He was only 20 years old.

Nate, thank you for everything. You have inspired each one of us to live the life we have been given to the fullest. We thank you for the inspiration that anyone can do anything no matter the circumstances.

We are sad that you are gone, but happy that you are no longer in pain. You touched this community in ways that could never be matched. You lived your life the way every life should be lived.

We miss you.

SENIORS!

May 21st, 2010 No comments

Every year the senior students join together on the Monday after they get out of school to come together and watch the Senior Slide Show. This is a classic tradition that Ralston Valley has done for many years. The students all have an assembly that is for the 2010 Senior Class and the students get to watch a slideshow of all the events and pictures that they experienced throughout their life. It is followed by the graduation rehearsal that is mandatory but afterwards they are treated with the Senior Picnic, which almost every senior attends and is by far one of the most eventful get togethers that is sponsored by the high school.

School Bus Driver Takes Kids To Amusement Park Instead of School

May 21st, 2010 No comments

It wasn’t a trick. But it sure wasn’t a treat for a group of New Jersey students who found themselves on a school bus headed off to an amusement park, instead of school.
Officials say about 30 students from Ridgefield Park High school got on their bus Wednesday, thinking it was the one that takes them to school every day.

But the driver had really come to pick up some seventh- and eighth- graders and take them to Six Flags Great Adventure.

The students knew something was wrong when the bus got on the New Jersey Turnpike.

Some called their parents and the school. School officials got police to stop the bus — and an officer rode back to school with the wayward bus.

Raiders

May 21st, 2010 No comments

There is no doubt Oakland is much more competitive with Campbell than former starter Jamarcus Russell, but will this translate into wins? The answer is yes. With the pathetic broncos confused on how many quarterbacks they need, and the chargers letting everyone go there is a void in the AFC west. That will definitely not be filled by the chiefs. Leaving the Raiders to  be the next big dynasty in the NFL. With the great All Davis leading them to the super bowl, his logic is undeniable.

RV Baseball

May 21st, 2010 No comments

     Ralston Valley baseball plays Cherry Creek on May 21, 2010.  This is also the last day for all the seniors at Ralston Valley.  A win would make this one of the most memorable days ever for Ralston Valley and its senior class.  With all but two of the varsity team being seniors it could be called a senior team.  They definitely have the spirit of an all senior team.  It’s all about living in the moment for these seniors.  Cherry Creek has a very skilled pitcher, but our offense has been absolutely on fire and I am sure that can translate into hits.  Our defense has been doing a great job fielding and making amazing plays.  Dylan Dwyer said, “I just want to win man, I just want to win.”  Winning a state championship would mean the world to them and I am honestly hoping and praying they win.
