Vikan Knights, ARMOR Up!

Big picture


Hi families,

We’re going From London to Paris in 2024, and you’re invited!

We’re excited to tell you more about the trip we’re planning with EF Tours, our educational travel partner. Please be sure to register for this info session to be considered for this opportunity:[[3LfHZu0]].

When students travel, they expand their knowledge of the world around them, discover more about themselves, and grow more confident. These skills are critical for creating the global citizens of tomorrow, and we would love to have your student join us on this adventure.

In this info session, we’ll talk about:

  • How this opportunity will benefit your child
  • What we’ll see and do on our trip
  • Everything that’s included in this experience
  • How your child can earn academic credit
  • How we’re keeping this safe and affordable
  • How to enroll on this trip (before it fills up!) during EF’s risk-free enrollment period

Registration for the info session is mandatory, and a parent or guardian must attend. (Can’t make it? Choose “No, but send info” so you don’t miss out.) Register here:[[3LfHZu0]]

Can't wait to see you there!

Sarah Butler

Parent Teacher Conferences

Please mark your calendars for our Parent-Teacher Conferences on October 10th. Your child's advisor will send a link for you to schedule a 20-minute slot for you both to meet. This will be a great opportunity for you to learn about your Knights academic and socio-emotional development at Vikan. You will have 20 minutes of undivided attention where you can discuss with your child's teacher how to continue to best support your Knight.

Vikan's Family Involvement Team ERROR FIXED

We want to apologize for the oversight regarding this link. We could not figure out what the problem was and why parents were not able to fill out the form. We now know that the form was setup to accept responses only from 27J accounts. We have not fixed that issue.

As of right now, it seems to be that Wednesdays at 5:00 PM seems to be the time that works for most. Unfortunately, we only have six responses. If you could please give it one more try we would really appreciate it! Please click HERE to help us decide on a day/time for our FIT team meetings. Some of the topics we will be addressing are:

  • Share progress made so far regarding our learning environment
  • Share current goal and actions steps being taken towards that goal
  • Discuss Student Dress Code
  • Discuss future items to be discussed
  • Q&A

Please complete THIS survey to provide us with feedback about the best time and day to meet.

Thank you!

One Chip Challenge

We wanted to make you aware of a social media challenge regarding a HOT HOT HOT chip that students are encouraged to eat entirely and then wait for a couple of hours. They are then encouraged to document their reaction. HERE is a video that illustrate the challenge.

We are asking you please not to send students to school with super hot chips (see picture below). The chip has ghost pepper, which is 500 times stronger than chili pepper. Some of the reactions are drooling, red eyes, intense pain, and difficulty breathing. These symptoms may result in hospitalization. HERE is a news report that better explains the challenge. If seeing here at school, these chips will be confiscated.

Thank you for your support with this.

Water at Vikan

We strongly recommend that your Knight brings a bottle each day. Filtered water is available for refill at the fountains located throughout the school. We would like to ask that our students do NOT bring water bottles that squirt. These water bottles make it very tempting to squirt friends and water on the floor. This can lead to safety issues and increased peer conflict. Thank you for your MOTIVATION and OPTIMISM!

Student Checkout

Please be RESPONSIBLE when checking your Knight out of school. The students must be signed out in the front office by a legal guardian with a valid ID. We will check the ID every time a student is signed out of the building to ensure their safety. We WILL NOT release a student to anyone who does not have an ID with them. Thank you for your understanding and support.
