The Viking Voice

The Viking Voice

January 22-January 26, 2018

It takes every Viking to sail our ship.

~Principal’s Message

This year, we started the "Wellness Wednesdays".  I can see the positive impact of family time, games, play dates and relaxation.  This week, I witnessed students getting ready for play dates and conversations about their plans for the afternoon.  We all need balance, in order to keep up with the demands of busy schedules including homework and extra-curricular activities.  Make sure to use this time to play games at home or host a play date.  This day was designated for social-emotional well-being.  I hope that you all are enjoying the time together in the Valle Verde Community!
