February Character Trait - Fairness

Fairness is our Viking Character Trait for the month of February. Throughout the month, Mrs. Slaughter will be visiting classrooms to talk to students about the importance of fairness in disagreeing respectfully, negotiating, and compromising.

Parents are encouraged to talk to their students about the importance of fairness by encouraging them to:

• Play by the rules;

• Take turns and share;

• Be open-minded and listen to others;

• Avoid taking advantage of others;

• Avoid blaming others carelessly; and

• Treat all people fairly.

Attendance this week...95.06%

Stay healthy out there. Our goal is 98%.

A Big Thank You

We would like to say thank you for Mrs. Evans for all her efforts in getting our elementary campuses ready to host the district UIL competition. The event went smoothly because of her expertise and planning. We would also like to thank the coaches for their time and dedication to our students and helping them prepare. Our staff rocks!
