NVHS Children’s Play - Is That Really Scary

Neuqua Valley High School invites the community to view the online original children’s play, "Is That Really Scary?" on October 30 at 7 pm at Albert, a precocious 9-year-old, sets on a quest to test a theory about our history's terrifying monsters by interviewing witches, zombies, vampires, and ghosts.  As he dives deeper into his findings, Albert realizes the most frightening ideas exist within himself and the unfortunate realities of the world. Will the witches cast a spell on him to change his life forever? Will the zombies convince him that life should be seized before it's too late? Will the vampires teach him about love of all things? And will the ghosts scare the Dickens out of him? Tune in to find out.

Power of Choice Fall 2020 Parent Newsletter

Parents of High School Students:

Raising substance-free kids in an era of legalization is one of the biggest challenges of parenting today. Fortunately, parents are the top influencers in their child’s life. Staying plugged-in to the things happening in their lives keeps them talking. Get valuable conversation tips and other insights on preventing teen marijuana use in the Fall 2020 newsletter, The Parent Post, high school edition. The Power of Choice will provide important updates throughout the year on youth substance use prevention.

The Power of Choice is a collaborative project led by 360 Youth Services in District 204 and District 203 middle and high schools growing the number of students making healthy choices regarding substance use.

PTA's Reflections Art Program Brings Art to Life Across the Nation

Five decades. Ten million students. And you!


“I Matter Because…”

That’s the theme for the 2020-21 Reflections Art Program which has been bringing the arts to life for more than 10 million students since 1969. 

Reflections encourages students of all ages to:

• Unleash creative talents and be inspired
• Express themselves imaginatively in their artwork
• Experience the fun and joy of making art
• Tap into critical-thinking skills to create art inspired by the annual theme
• Receive positive recognition for their original works of art.


All students attending PTA schools sponsoring the program are invited to participate and submit original artwork in one of six areas:

• Dance Choreography
• Literature
• Photography
• Film Production
• Music Composition
• Visual Arts

Given the impact of COVID-19, student participation in arts programs like Reflections is now more important than ever to help them process their thoughts and feelings. As many students will be learning remotely, we will be running our Reflections programs virtually. This year, you can submit your Reflections submission form and artwork online.

Special Artists division celebrates student artists with special needs.
Last date to submit your artwork: Thursday, October 29th, 2020

Questions? Contact our District 204 Chairperson, Shivam Viswanathan, at

Learn more and submit your artwork by visiting the IPSD 204 Reflections Site.

2020 - 2021 Yearbook Orders - A Year to Remember?

2018? It was pretty good. 
2019? Mmm... I guess it was okay.
2020? OMG, where do I even begin? 

A lot of years kind of blend in together. 2020? Not so much. No one alive has been through anything like what this year has thrown at us... 
  • Last year, school was basically cancelled.
  • We learned how to Zoom.
  • Australia, then the West Coast, spontaneously combusted.
  • Then the Supreme Court.
  • The Olympics were cancelled.
  • Most other sports too, for that matter.
  • Black Lives Matter protests swept the globe.
  • The Presidential election is freaking crazy.
  • Oh yeah, and there's this global pandemic thing...
Bottom line: You're going to want some proof that you experienced this year firsthand.

NVHS Yearbook... you want this slice of history and can order it at today.

Class of 2021 - Friday Night Lights - Friday, October 2, 2020


On Friday, October 2, 2020, we invite our Class of 2021 to a Senior Car Parade around campus. We'll have lights, music and a free tee giveaway. We know it's not a substitute for a typical year, but let's come together and "do what we can, with what we have, where we are." Help us celebrate you!

The limit is 2 people per car and everyone must remain in their car for the entire route.

Beginning at 7:30pm, you enter from LaCrosse off Rt. 59, go through the Freshmen Center parking lot and join the cue line (in yellow). Once we begin at 8:00pm (in blue), keep a slow pace and keep a good space between you and the car in front of you.
