The Conservation Club distributed small green or blue recycling bins to each team center.  Please use these bins to recycle markers, pens, mechanical pencils, and empty glue sticks.  Due to our recycling endeavors last year, the club was able to redeem points we had earned to help fund charitable events like providing drinking water to people in need and protecting an acre of rainforest.  

What do Jolly Ranchers wrappers, Blow-pop wrappers, pencil shavings, and Kleenex all have in common?  They are all items that should go in the trash, not the recycling bin.  Putting wrong things in the recycling bins means that nothing in there actually gets recycled.   The Conservation Club put signs in each classroom to promote the correct disposal of recycling and trash items.   Please use these to dispose of waste properly.

Yesterday, the 8th grade girls’ volleyball team played at Thompson Middle School. In the A game, Teagan Lee wielded Thor's Hammer and used the power of thunder to blast 6 incredible serves to Thompson. Sydney Harper added SHARP swings to help the Vikings score! In the B game, Aly Jones and Marylee Ruiz were rolling on defense, and made some awesome saves to keep the Vikings in the game. In the end, the Thunder brought the lightning and thunder; and the storm was too powerful for the Vikings. Up next, the Vikings take on North at GHS on Wednesday at 4:15pm. Come get your limited-edition Mr. Lane bobbleheads at the game!! Go Vikings!


The Thompson Thunder came to Geneva South yesterday hoping for a victory. The 7th grade girls’ A team was off to a slow start but came back to win it in 3. Holly Hansing made sure that nothing was going to drop without a fight! Her saves in the back row were spectacular! Lexi Gundrum played strong at middle! Well done, girls!  The B team had their first loss of the season. It was a back-and-forth battle for all three sets but the Vikings couldn't come home with the W. Everyone played tough and left their hearts on the court! Come see us tonight as we play North at North. 


Last night your JV Geneva Vikings traveled the long road to Yorkville to battle the Fighting Foxes. Cody Rader had the game of his life.

Your Vikings came home with the 16-14 win.
