Minimum Day Information Letter
My name is Kent Roberts, and I am the new principal at Green Valley High School. I am very pleased to have the opportunity to serve such a great school community. As the principal at Boulder City High School for the past three years, I know very well what students are capable of when they are raised by supportive parents, nurtured by committed, passionate teachers, and given the tools to reach their potential. Green Valley High School is well known for its tremendous success in developing bright, talented, well-rounded students who excel in every way imaginable. I consider it a great honor to be joining an organization that demonstrates its "Commitment to Excellence" on a daily basis.
I have served in the field of education for over 20 years, beginning as a teacher in Arizona. During my time as a classroom teacher, I have taught a wide variety of subjects, and I have served as a coach or sponsor in numerous sports or activities. For the last nine years I have served as an administrator in the state of Nevada, the last three as principal of Boulder City High School. Boulder City and Green Valley have much in common. Students at both schools are extremely committed to their education and both have teachers, advisors, and coaches who are willing to go the extra mile to ensure the success of the young people in their charge. Both have very supportive parents and communities and so it is no secret that both schools have garnered more than their share of accolades.
Educating a young man or woman is not a singular task. It requires the coordinated efforts of many people and careful planning. We understand that the road to success is not always a smooth one and that we must work diligently to realize our dreams. Although Green Valley has had a great track record of success, it must strive to improve so that graduates have every skill that they need to compete in a fast-moving world. Working together, we can certainly accomplish any goals that we set for ourselves.
Once again, I am very eager to begin the work of helping to push Green Valley High School to even greater heights and to maintain its traditions of excellence and high achievement. Thank you for your time, and I look forward to meeting you and working with you in the coming years.

The Green Valley High School Madrigal Singers, which have long exemplified outstanding choral music in the State of Nevada and across the United States, has once again been accepted to perform at the American Choral Directors Association Conference. The Green Valley High School Concert Choir was given this honor in 1998 and the Madrigal Singers were given this honor in 2005. The Green Valley High School Choirs were the first high school from Nevada to perform at such prestigious events. The Madrigals were selected again in 2009 to perform at the 50th Anniversary National Conference in Oklahoma City. This is the "Super Bowl" of choral singing; the best of the best are selected from across the United States and internationally.
The Madrigal Singers were selected out of several hundred applicants, including children's, church and university/college choirs. Twelve choirs were selected to perform. The conference will be held in Santa Barbara, California, February 20 - 22nd, and will be attended by thousands of choral music educators from all over the world. The Green Valley High School Choirs exemplify the school's motto, "Commitment to Excellence" and are under the direction of Mrs. Kim Barclay Ritzer, choral director at GVHS since the school opened in 1991.

Valedictorian status is awarded to the student(s) earning the highest grade point average in the graduating class. The highest possible GPA in a class is 4.8. Salutatorian status is awarded to the student(s) earning the second highest grade point average in the class. Candidates for the valedictorian/salutatorian designations will be identified at the end of the fall semester of their senior year. This ranking will be based on any and all completed high school credit granting courses, including those courses which receive the weighted grade point average (GPA). This includes 14 classes, 4 (2 credits - 4 Semesters) of which are designated as Advanced Placement (AP) and/or International Baccalaureate (IB). Final valedictorian(s) and salutatorian(s) candidacy will be determined upon the completion of all high school credit course work through the eighth semester.
If you feel that you should be considered as Valedictorian or Salutatorian, please discuss this with your Counselor.
