Becca W. has won her second All State Art award! She was presented the award on May 5th at the Des Moines Art Center. All State Artists are selected from all schools in Iowa, from the largest to the smallest, after the artist summits a portfolio of ten pieces of artwork. Becca is a two-time All State Winner, which a rare feat. Last year, as a Junior, Becca was 18th in the state, but after working hard and pushing herself she improved to 4th in the State. West Central Valley is so proud of how Becca has represented us and wish her huge amounts of congratulations on her amazing achievement!
WCV students showed very well at this year’s West Central Activities Conference Art Fair. All schools in our conference brought well over 800 pieces of art. With a total of 51 total medals won, WCV was awarded the most of any school. WCV students also won the most 1st and 2nd place awards. Mr. Claire, WCV High School Art Teacher, “It was a complete effort by the Art Department. It was so nice seeing first time medal winners and those who have won before pushing themselves even farther. Such a wide range of talent from painters, sculptures, photographers, computer graphics, and drawers. Our program is in a great place now. So proud of each art student. GO CATS!” This is third year in a row the Wildcat’s took home the most awards from the WC Conference Art Show.

As a nation, we have become more attuned to the security needs of our school. While education remains a priority for West Central Valley Community School District (WCV CSD), we continually review, refine, and improve our efforts to maintain the type of safe school that our parents expect and that our students and staff deserve.
In a continuing effort to best safeguard your children and our staff; WCV CSD has retrofitted all district buildings with a camera and buzz-in security system. The buzz-in system allows all doors to be locked during the school day. The main entrance has an intercom that allows you to speak with a main office receptionist, who will unlock the door for you. Upon entering you are required to visit the office to sign-in. Although this procedure may be a bit more cumbersome for visitors, it greatly increases our ability to monitor who is allowed access to the halls and rooms occupied by your children. No one will be buzzed in during passing periods.
Thank you for helping us protect our most valued assets, your children.

The Iowa Department of Public Health Bureau of Health Statistics is taking steps to exchange any newborn birth certificate issued from May 1993 to October 2009, where the birth certificate is a small wallet-size card. The newborn birth certificate wallet cards issued during this time period did not contain enough vital record information to be used for identification purposes, essentially making them less useful for the purpose they are intended to be used for.
The newborn birth cards may be exchanged by mail or in person with the Bureau of Health Statistics, 321 E. 12th St., Lucas State Office Building, Des Moines, Iowa 50319.
The following steps must be taken to expedite the exchange of the newborn birth certificate wallet cards:
