Destination Imagination Team at Vienna-Finley

Practices for the DI Team are on Tuesdays and Thursdays right after school until 5:00 until the competition on February 27th. We may work in some Saturday practices as we move closer to the competition. Mrs. Gordon will send out details on the competition time/place as soon as it is released to her.


When you come to pick up your child, we will follow normal pick up procedures. You can line up your vehicles right outside the gym and she will escort them out the gym doors at the end of practices.

Toys, Toys, and More Toys...

Dear Families,


Students are beginning to bring toys to school and they are causing issues both in the classroom and on the bus. Please make sure that your child isn't bringing toys to school unless you are notified to bring them by your child's teacher.


Thank you in advance for helping us with this situation.

Warmly,

Mrs. Barrett

Vienna-Finley Partners with Scottsburg High School to Yield BIG Results!

Beth Walton's Education Professions class visited Mrs. Lucas's class. The students made "Frozen " snowballs with baking soda. They added vinegar to erupt the snowballs and to observe the chemical reaction of baking soda and vinegar.

The Education Professions class also demonstrated now to make ice cream in a bag. After lots of shaking, the students enjoyed heir tasty treat.

Snow Problem!

In the event of inclement weather, SCSD2 may need to call a 2-hour delay or call school off altogether for the safety of our students. If a 2-hour delay is called, Vienna-Finley will be open at 7:30 AM for students that must be dropped off early. Please also be patient with bus drivers as routes may be delayed due to snow and ice.


If school is cancelled, the YMCA program at VFES, and all school activities, events and practices will also be cancelled to ensure the safety of all of our students and staff.


SchoolMessenger calls will be sent out in the event that there is a change in schedule. That call could be made at night or early in the morning, so please check your phones often when weather is bad.

Please keep your contact numbers updated in the school office and listen to I105.3 for school closings as well.

Do YOU Want to Build a Snowman?

Well if you do, Vienna-Finley is the place for YOU! Our fabulous PTO is sponsoring a grade competition instead of by class this time. The theme is "Do you want to build a snowman?" They are going to offer an extra (snowball fight) recess to the grade that brings in the most box tops. Let's see if we can bring in more Box Tops than ever before for this competition!
