Dear Viking Families,
We made it to Fall Break! We hope you all enjoy some time off with your family and friends! We do have a few activities on campus this week for Driver’s Ed, some sports and of course active construction. If you need to reach an administrator for any reason, please email us and we will get in touch.

Dear VAMS Families,

The first quarter at the middle school has been awesome.  I have been extremely impressed with our Viking Scholars. They come to school prepared and ready to learn.  Our students show much interest in our core values and often acknowledge students who are displaying one of the values - empathy, integrity, reflection, confidence, and curiosity. In addition to the academics and core values, we continue to discuss bullying.  Bullying is not acceptable at the middle school and if reported it is handled appropriately. Remember sometimes behaviors are mean behaviors rather than bullying!

Dear VAES Families,
It’s hard to believe that we are only a week away from our Fall Break (October 8 – 12)!!  August and September have flown by! For the past few weeks, our Kindergarten – Third grade students have been going on field experiences and listening to guest experts as they dive deeper into their 1st trimester projects.  Field experiences (field trips) and guest experts are key component in Project Based Learning (PBL) and are a part of the elementary project work curriculum.

Dear VAMS Families,

Hello to all Middle School families,
One more week and the first quarter is over!  I am so proud of the work our students are doing.  Please make sure you have your child (children) share their learning with you.  Making it part of your evening routine will help you know what is happening in the classrooms.
