Vikan Knights, ARMOR Up!

Principal's Message

We are very excited to have concluded our second week at Vikan. We want to thank you very much for your support. At Vikan, we value our partnership with our community as you are a valuable member of your child's education.


This week our Knights learned about what it means to be a Vikan Knights. The learned about ADAPTABILITY, RESPECT, MOTIVATION, OPTIMISM and RESPONSIBILITY (ARMOR). We will continue to reinforce our core values of ARMOR every day in every classroom. We encourage you to talk to your child about how they are living these values at school.


I hope that by now, you have become familiar with your student's Academic Advisor. Remember, the Academic Advisory is your go-to person for everything related to your Knight. In addition to the Academic Advisor, we also have a Whole Child Team or Student Success Team. This team works tirelessly to ensure your child's academic, social, and emotional needs are met.

Star Knight: Suki Mizunaga

Suki is a 6th grader at Vikan Middle School. She is also a competitive softball player. She started catching at the age of 6 on a 10U competitive softball team. That year, she was picked up by another 10U to attend the Heartland World Series. Where she was named MVP and won that tournament. From there she grew into being a catcher. She played on 10U from age 6-8 and moved up in age group to 12U at 8 years old. She then made a huge jump to 14U at 9. Her 14U team won consecutive tournaments at one point in the season. They were 1 in the state and 4 in the nation. They went 24 games undefeated with Suki as starting catcher. This year was huge for her. Several home runs and 1 grand slam!! Being selected for the All American Games in Oklahoma as a catcher. Only 5 girls were selected from the state of Colorado. She represented Region 7 Stars wearing an official USA jersey ( she was still the youngest on her team). She had the big honor of meeting Monica Abbott USA softball Olympian. 360 athletes from across the country were selected. Considering the amount of softball players in the nation it was a huge honor and a even bigger milestone! She is a awesome catcher great hitter! awesome daughter! Kind hearted and hard working!!


We are proud to have Suki as part of the Vikan family. Congratulations Suki!!
