Officer Thomas goes “Under the Sea”
VVHS SRO Thomas performs at the first spirit assemblyIt is not everyday that Valley Vista High School students see City of Surprise School Resource Officer (SRO) Chris Thomas dressed like the Little Mermaid singing about gadgets and gizmos aplenty.  Then again, this is for a special cause.

As part of the first pep assembly, Officer Thomas made good on his promise to perform the song ‘Part of Your World’ if Valley Vista students reached their goal of raising $3,000 for the Special Olympics during the Minutes that Matter campaign last year.  Students answered the call - exceeding the initial goal and raising $3,700.

The Minutes that Matter Campaign is a school-based fundraising and awareness effort that benefits the Special Olympics. The 60-second spare change drive allows students turn in as much change as possible with a suspenseful countdown. The theme of the campaign focuses on making a minute do more.

Valley Vista will host an additional campaign in the spring.  Thomas was the named 2017 SRO of the Year and continues to be a positive role model at Valley Vista High School.  He is taking song recommendations for next year.

Members of the Valley Vista Unified Basketball team pose with members of the Dysart Unified Governing Board.Valley Vista High School academic interventionist Karin York has been nominated for the 2018-2019 national LifeChanger of the Year award.
York is being recognized as a LifeChanger in Surprise for profoundly changing the special education department at her school. She has implemented life skills and job training classes for her students, and has also promoted the Unified Sports program, which unifies general education athletes with Special Olympic athletes.
Currently, York leads Arizona in the “Minute That Matters” campaign.  She organizes, promotes, and conducts this event for her school each year, and she raised over $3,500 in 60 seconds last year. The money was donated by the student body for the Special Olympics team.  Along with teaching, she is a state-winning coach in cross country, track, unified basketball, and flag football.
York was nominated by her husband, Chris York.
"Many would attest to the absolutely amazing woman my wife is," Chris York said. "As a mother of 5, a grandmother, a sister, an aunt, and a truly wonderful wife, she does it all and is a ‘wonder woman.’"

Valley Vista High School Principal Bobbie Lockhart agrees.  "Karin is an outstanding educator and a consummate professional."

York was named Dysart Hero in 2011 and the Dysart Heartbeat award winner in 2016. She has also spent the last 9 years working with Younglife, a youth organization that connects adolescents with adults and helps to build strong relationships in the Surprise community.
