Registration of kindergarten students for next year took place during January. If you have a child who will be five years old before October 1, 2017 or know of someone who has a child meeting this age requirement, please contact the school at 943-2165 or stop in the office to register. Having an idea of how many kindergarten students will be attending next year helps us as we begin planning and scheduling for the new school year. Kindergarten screening is scheduled for March 8 and 9.

A big THANK YOU goes out to our Viking Readers volunteers who are helping many of our students gain confidence in their reading skills. We are always looking for more volunteers. Call the school if you are interested or if you have any questions about this program. The more volunteers we have the more students we can serve.

A friendly reminder: If a student is more than $10.00 in debt on their lunch account they will get a peanut butter sandwich and milk for lunch. There will be a charge of $1.00.

Our lost and found table is full!! If your child is missing a hat, gloves or some other clothing item feel free to come in yourself and take a look.

Keep collecting and sending in Box Tops. The school gets money back from the Box Tops that are sent in. We use this money to buy the medals and trophies for our end of the year Award Day as well as pizza for AR parties and our Good Character lunch each month.

Students in grades K-2 will no longer be allowed to use the microwave ovens in the auditeria.
