St. Viator Parish School

Viator Voice: April 9, 2018


Today, we had our APEX Teacher Huddle to kick off this year's PTO APEX FUN RUN: the most fun our school can have during a fundraiser. This two -week program is hassle-free, includes all students, leadership lessons, fitness-focus, and raises over twice the money for our school compared to product sales.

This year our theme is UNITED. Each day beginning Wednesday, our team will focus on special lessons to include:
No Excuses,
Inspire Others,
mpathize, and
o Your Best.

Please join us for our kick up assembly tomorrow at 1:50 pm in the gym to learn more about the upcoming fun run!
