Message from the Principal

Happy Halloween, Viking Community!! If you're planning on dressing up for Monday's spirit day, don't forget to review our costume guidelines below! If you participate in trick-or-treating, I hope that you have a safe and joyful evening! Please be careful when crossing streets at night and double check your candy in good lighting to ensure it is unopened and okay to eat!

Parents, please check your email inbox for an email from Mrs. Raczkowski last Friday. This email contained your child's Progress Report 2 grades, as well as their number of hall passes used so far, and whether or not your child is on the Non-Privilege List (Click HERE for the List). Please review the email carefully and let us know if you have any questions. In addition, your child received a hard copy of their Progress Report to bring home. Make sure they show it to you and then take some time to discuss what they did well on and what they need to work on. There are only 6 weeks remaining in the semester! Help your child set some goals now before it's too late.

Thank you to the parents who attended Pizza with the Principal last Thursday! I hope you found the presentation informative and helpful. Did you miss it? No worries, find the link to the presentation HERE.

I want to take a minute to scream a HUGE congratulations to our boys basketball team and Coach Ericka for winning the South Bay League Championship this past Saturday!!! We are so proud of you!! Their hard work, hustle. and determination earned them a quarterfinal victory over Chula Middle, a semifinal victory over Granger Junior, and then a finals victory over Southwest Middle. It was an exciting day and our awesome cheer squad was there to root them on the whole time! Their energy was contagious and a definite motivator for the boys! Thank you also to the MVA Staff who came out to support! This championship win marks the second year in a row the boys have won South Bay League!! Congrats again!

Congratulations to Ms. Romo's advisory class for winning last week's Music Monday challenge and earning fresh donuts! Remember, this is a game where each week, I play a short snippet of a song over the PA system and the 3rd advisory class that calls the office with the correct title and artist, wins a special breakfast treat that morning! Will your advisory class win this week?!?

Wishing you a great Week 14, Vikings!

Take care,

Ms. Scott

Don't forget to dress appropriately on Halloween!!

Although dressing up for Halloween is fun, education is the first priority at Mar Vista Academy. Therefore, costumes must not inhibit the ability of a student to participate fully in classes. Students must be able to sit, walk, breathe, see and hear in their costumes. All costumes must be school appropriate! Please use good judgement! See more details below!
