Greetings from Mrs. Stoyko
The building is abuzz with the excitement of learning! All across the school you will see students working hard to learn new skills and concepts and practice collaboration and teamwork. September was a busy month focused on building school stamina school and relearning Viking expectations. A number of visitors have mentioned how calm the hallways feel this year. This is because our entire staff has worked diligently to ensure that every child has an opportunity to explicitly learn and practice The Viking Way. When students are regulated and feel a sense of safety, they learn more!
