Annual celebration of “Vals” and “Sals” is set for May 31

Last year's "vals" and "sals" pose for their group portrait.

The annual celebration of all Valedictorians and Salutatorians in MPS HIgh Schools is scheduled for Thursday, May 31, at 6:30 p.m. at MPS Central Services.   The event kicks off the monthly meeting of the School Board. 

Approximately 100 students who have the highest academic scores in their individual high schools don their caps and gowns to be honored by the Board, MPS staff, and their proud parents.  The names of the students and their schools are read aloud as the Valedictorians and Salutatorians cross the stage.

The “Vals” and “Sals” traditionally pose for a group picture after the celebration. The photo is taken at the front entrance of MPS Central Services. Media are encouraged to join us for that photo opportunity, as well as for the entire celebration.
