Microsoft IT Academy is a state program that gives the school free software, and in return the school has people take tests to become certified in that software. Royal Valley decided to turn this into a class that is taught by Mrs. Gustin. In the class, the students watch videos and read, then take tests over different software programs. Two students, Alize Bryan, and Sarah Beam finished the test for Microsoft Word and received certificates.
Mrs. Gustin commented, "This class is a great opportunity for students."

Nurse Mosier and Mr. Linn have been working hard to get two $1,000 grants to buy a water bottle filling station for the high school and weight room equipment for the middle school. By adding this filling station to the school, Nurse Mosier hopes to influence students to better hydrate their bodies.
"I hope to reinforce what students learn in their health classes," commented Nurse Mosier.
She hopes to encourage students to use more environmentally-friendly water bottles, instead of plastic bottles. Nurse Mosier is taking large steps into creating better, healthier lifestyles for the people here in the Royal Valley school district. The total cost of the water fountain is $1,143.29.
"I hope to send Public Service Announcement tweets encouraging students to drink water & health facts about water two times a month," said Mrs. Mosier.
