Dear Viking Families!
It was a short week with the three snow days off. The district provided the following information regarding how the school calendar has been affected:
“To date, students have lost 3 days of instruction due to weather-related school closures. The current school calendar includes 2 days for weather make-up. April 3 and May 26 are now regular school days for all students in grades K-12. In addition, the last day of school is now Monday, June 26. In the event of additional weather-related school closures, the last day of school will be affected.”
If you would like to change how you receive notifications from the district office in regard to school closures or changes, the following webpage talks about updating notification preferences in Family Access: http://www.sumnersd.org/Page/3772

Beautiful Valentine Card Entries Coming In!
This is the last weekend to make a creative Valentine Card to decorate the front office and be part of our contest! We will be selecting winning cards from each grade level, along with other categories, such as the cards with the "best message", the "funniest cards", etc. As students complete their cards, they can be turned into the office (for hanging). Students can turn in their Valentine cards up until Monday, February 13th. The cards must have the student's name, teacher's name and the grade on the back and the winners will be announced on Valentine's Day and will receive prizes!
Testing Next Week
February 13th - 16th our Vikings will be completing their mid-year assessments. Please be sure that your child gets plenty of rest, has a nutritious breakfast, and is on-time to school. Thank you for partnering with us to ensure that all students are ready to show their academic growth and success.
