Happy New Year!

Bitter cold weather has welcomed us back to school! Please be sure to provide a scarf or face mask for your child. They are bundled up nicely but I see a lot of uncovered faces that get pretty red from the cold.

On our Jan. 17th Professional Development Day, that students have off, our teachers will be learning from Dr. Anthony Muhammed. He is a well known educator and speaker. Staff will be learning about ensuring learning equality in every classroom.

We hope in the coming months we will be able to host a couple family nights. We would invite our families to come in and participate in a fun activity. More information to come.

Letter from Mrs. Knable, School Counselor

January 3rd, 2022


Dear Parent(s) & Guardian(s):

This spring, the Viking School Counseling program will begin skill development groups to meet the specific needs that a number of students have in common. All students have areas to grow, and groups will address both academic and/or social success, such as calm down skills, coping skills, and study skills. Groups are open to all students, are completely voluntary, and will work around core curriculum time, so students do not miss their important classes.

If you do not want your student to participate in skill groups, please sign below and return to the school no later than Friday, January 14th. If you have questions regarding the group your student has been invited to join, please feel free to contact me via phone at 701-787-4367, ext. 1694,
or at kknable230@mygfschools.org.

Please remember to drop off your students curbside to the sidewalk. Do not park in staff parking lot north of the school for pick up or drop off. Please obey traffic rules when near the school zone.
