Good morning! I hope a wonderful weekend! If you have not returned your intent form for the 2022-2023 school year, please do so as soon as possible. This helps us to prepare for next year and ensure that we are appropriately staffed.

Thank you all so very much for your support and donations for our Fun Run. We raised over $70,000!!! Our students had the best time at their run last Wednesday. Thank you to all families that were able to volunteer and those that were able to come and cheer on our students! We appreciate your continuous support of Viera Elementary.

Our Kindergarten Orientation is set for Wednesday, April 5th from 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM. this event is open to all incoming Kindergarten families!

Wireless Communication Devices

Last week in your child's backpack, you should have found a packet of information regarding wireless communication devices. The packet included a letter from me, po5136 regarding wireless communication devices and a blank copy of the student cell phone contract. As you are aware, at Viera Elementary we keep wireless communication devices turned off and in student backpacks. We will be continuing this practice. You will find a copy of Board Policy regarding wireless communication devices as well as the student cell phone contract. All students who carry a wireless device to school must have one of these contracts on file in the front office. If your child has recently received a wireless device, please ensure that this is filled out and returned to school promptly. Smart watches may be worn to school for the purpose of a watch only. Students are not permitted to use their watch for any other reason than to tell time. If you should have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at 321-350-8691. Have a great weekend!

Root of the Week

Root of the Week: Word Superstars. Each week we will share a new root on the morning announcements. Students are encouraged to use words with this root. In fact, if teachers or staff catch a student using a word with the root, they can give them a ticket. They can fill out the ticket and put it in the box that will be in the cafeteria. At the end of the week we will draw five tickets out to recognize our Word Superstars. They will receive a special spirit tag that says “Word of the Week Superstar”.

This week’s root is chron: the Greek root meaning time

Lunch with your Student

Beginning, the week of September 6, parents will be able to eat lunch on campus with their child one day a week. This will be each Wednesday and spots will be limited, so parents must sign up in advance at Additionally, there are some guidelines which must be followed to ensure the safety and well-being of everyone on campus:

  • · Parents must be on time for their child’s scheduled lunch time.
  • · Parents must communicate with their child’s teacher that they will be coming to lunch on that day.
  • · Parents must sign in at the front office and then will be escorted to the cafeteria to meet their child if they are not a registered volunteer.
  • · There will be a designated table that the parent and student will sit at, this will not be with the class.
  • · Parents may only have lunch with their child, no exceptions will be allowed.
  • · While having lunch with your child, no cameras or phones taking pictures are permitted to protect the privacy of other students and families.
  • · We strongly encourage younger siblings to stay home as we will have limited seating available.
  • · Visitors/Volunteers are expected to dress appropriately when visiting campus.
  • · Once your child’s lunch is over, they will promptly join their class to dismiss. Parents are not able to follow their child/the class back to the classroom and will sign out in the front office.
