Hello Viking Families,
Please be on the lookout for 21st Century Summer School information that will be release in the 2 weeks. We strongly encourage you to consider signing up your child for this wonderful opportunity to help them get extra support in Reading and Math. Additionally, we will be offering many other exciting classes (LEGOs, Sports Club, Art, just to name a few). Classes will run from May 24-June 17th, M-Th 8:00am-12:00pm.
If you know of a neighbor or friend who has a Kindergarten aged student that will be attending Village Meadows next year, please reach out to them and remind them that NOW is the time to register. The number of teachers we are allocated depends on the number of students that are registered.
With the temperature starting to warm up it is important for students to remain hydrated. Please send a water bottle to school with your child in order to keep them from getting overheated and/or dehydrated.
Have a wonderful week!
Drop-Off and Pick-Up Procedures:
- Please do not pull into a handicap parking spots to drop off students. You may park, with the appropriate signage, in a handicap spot and walk your child to the flagpole.
- If a parent/guardian does not want to exit their car and walk a student to the flagpole the the drive through loop should be utilized.
- When using the loop please pull as far forward as you can. Staff will motion for students to exit vehicles. Stopping and dropping students off in front of the office doors is unsafe, please do not drop off students until you get passed the safety guard rales.
- Students MUST exit vehicles from the passenger side doors, they may not exit on driver's side.
- Please remember that the front loop is a drive-through, therefore, if you are needing to help your child with their seat belt or other items, I invite you to park in our parking lot and walk them to the flagpole.

Peace means proving you care more about each other than winning an argument.
ASK A KID: • Have you ever heard your parents or teachers say “try to keep the peace”? • What does that saying mean to you? • Think of some times that you were able to be a peacemaker in a situation. This might have happened at school with classmates or at home with siblings. Also, think of a time when you were unable to keep the peace. How did each scenario make you feel? What was the outcome in both situations?
ASK A GROWN UP: • Have there been times as an adult when you were unable to keep the peace? Discuss the circumstances, the people involved and the outcome. • Now, share a time when you were able to be the peacemaker. Discuss specific positive contrasts from the example when you weren’t able to keep the peace.
