This weekend the community gathered in Hoyt and Mayetta to celebrate 50 years as a district. It was a large turnout for the various events around the district. On Saturday, the day kicked off with a family fun run on the new KAY walking trail. There was a sand volleyball tournament in Hoyt City Park in the morning. The afternoon began in Mayetta with a school tour of RVMS where student history projects were on display. The tour then moved to Hoyt where patrons and alums could tour RVES and RVHS. At 3:30 pm the KAY Club held a ribbon cutting for their walking trail south of the football practice field. At 4:30 pm RV students and alums paraded around Hoyt to showcase their Panther spirit. Following the parade food, games and a petting zoo spread out behind RVHS and RVES. A ceremony was held on the track at 6 pm where State Board of Education member Deena Horst presented Superintendent Aaric Davis with a plaque commemorating RV's 50th year.
On Sunday, community members teamed up to play in a golf scramble at Village Greens and students of all ages gathered to clean up trash in Hoyt, Mayetta and the Prairie Band Potawatomi Reservation.
