Viking PTO Meeting on Monday, May 13th at 7:00pm in Library

Viking PTO is looking for more members! We are in need of a Vice President and Secretary for the upcoming school year! PTO is a great opportunity to get involved, share ideas, and stay up to date with activities that are happening at the Viking School. PTO meets once a month for an hour on the 2nd Monday of each month of the school year. This is a great group of parents to get to know and work with at Viking School! Please plan to attend the meeting on the 13th. If you are not able to attend the meeting but would be interested in the Vice President or Secretary position please call the office and leave a message with Desi. Thanks!

HRS Site Visit at Viking School

On May 14th from 1-3pm, we will have a representative from the Marzano Research Institute doing a site visit at Viking School. We are hoping to be certified at the Level I of High Reliable Schools.

1.1 The faculty and staff perceive the school environment as safe and orderly.

1.2 Students, parents, and the community perceive the school environment as safe and orderly.

1.3 Teachers have formal roles in the decision-making process regarding school initiatives.

1.4 Collaborative teams regularly interact to address common issues regarding curriculum, assessment, instruction, and the achievement of all students.

1.5 Teachers and staff have formal ways to provide input regarding the optimal functioning of the school.

1.6 Students, parents, and the community have formal ways to provide input regarding the optimal functioning of the school.

1.7 The school acknowledges the success of the whole school as well as individuals within the school.


The representative will also visit some classrooms, talk with staff, students and a few parents. We are looking forward to sharing all the great things that are happening at our school!

Viking Pride Day!

We have our Viking Pride Day for students on May 24th in the afternoon. This is great fun for all our students but we need parents to help out that day if they can. There is a sign up genius for volunteers. If you can make it that day to help that would be great! PTO has rented a large bouncy house style game for that afternoon too! We will be having the color run on that afternoon as one of the activities. Students can wear their STAR shirts they received from school.
