The Viking Voice

The Viking Voice

September 17-21, 2018

It takes every Viking to sail our ship.

~Principal’s Message

 

We have accomplished quite a bit in the first month of school!  Back to School Night and the first PTA meeting was held.  Students are just finishing up diagnostic testing, so that we can provide the necessary support toward grade level Common Core Standards.  Teachers are also establishing the teacher-student relationship to support the whole child, including the academic, social/emotional well-being, with a balance of fun. 

As you can see, the year is full of activities and many opportunities for parent involvement!  I encourage you to stay connected to the school environment and all that we have to offer.  There will be programs, classroom stations, field trips, weekend activities, and community events.  The Viking Fun Run is coming up and there is enough fun for all!  The Community Service Day is in October and it gives us the opportunity to give Valle Verde a little love and care.  If you are looking for more fun as a family, join us during the Fall Carnival and Haunted House.  I mentioned all of the activities because the PTA sponsors every event and there are opportunities for everyone.  Please make sure to check the Viking Voice, PTA website or the Viking Magnet for specific dates of activities.

SCHOOL ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

OFFICE HOURS: Our office is open M-F, from 7:30am to 3:00pm. You can reach us at 925-939-5700. Our attendance hotline is 925-682.8000 x7505. 

 

ENRICHMENT: Please note, enrichments are vendor/contractor driven classes.  Information provided is a courtesy to our parents.   These programs are not sponsored by the school or the PTA. Please do not drop off forms/payment to the front office. Payments should be delivered/mailed to vendor.  If you have questions, you should contact the vendor directly.

 

REMINDER: ANIMALS AT SCHOOL

 

Your cooperation in keeping dogs and other pets at home will aid in maintaining a safe school environment. Pet behavior may be unpredictable. It is impossible to predict what a normally docile animal will do on a playground with many children. If a student wishes to bring a small animal for study or observation, they must have permission from the teacher and/or office.  Pets are to be taken home after sharing; they cannot remain at school.

 

 

VOLUNTEERING:  All volunteers must have a negative TB test and pass fingerprint clearance. The summer is a perfect time to get this done. Effective July 1, 2009, there will be a $32.00 ($49.00 if you have lived in California less than one year) fingerprinting charge payable in Cash (exact cash please), Money Order or Cashier’s Check made payable to Mt. Diablo Unified School District. No personal checks will be accepted. Evidence of medical clearance from tuberculosis obtained within the last 60 days must be provided at the time of your scheduled fingerprint appointment. TB clearance remains valid for 4 years and fingerprints do not have an expiration date. Please schedule your fingerprint appointment through our online appointment system accessed via our Parent Portal page from our District website-mdusd.org.
