How Many Days Until Spring Break? 

16! That’s it! 16!

We’ve made it folks. After spring break is the home stretch. Make it the best trimester possible. Put forth as much effort as you can in your school work and projects. Push forward. You can do it. Keep your head up. Focus.

Thank you parents for taking an interest and participating in Parent/Teacher conferences. Communicating with your student’s teachers is the best way for you to keep up-to-date with class performance, behavior, and support needed for success. If you didn’t get a chance to meet up or call your student’s teacher yet, please give him/her a call to have a conversation about your student.

In celebrating St. Paddy’s day, a bit early, the 3rd graders ran a fundraiser selling yummy minty shamrock shakes. An ENORMOUS thank you to Ms. Knight, our parent coordinator, who rocked making and selling the shakes. Also a thank you to Maestra Laurenzi and her class for assisting in the sale so the 3rd graders can visit the theater.

Attendance is mandatory!

Remember 95% attendance  results in a successful educational experience. Strive for excellence and hit that 95%. School Year Calendar is available by clicking here!

 Start Time: 7:35 A.M – 2:35 P.M. 

Make note of the new  times. Students, you MUST arrive to school on time. Being tardy not only disrupts your learning, but also the learning of other students in the classroom. Be courteous and be on time! If you are eating breakfast at school, you MUST go directly to the cafeteria upon arrival. Breakfast is ONLY served from 7:20 – 7:30. Accommodations will be made for late busers by administration. If you stay outside to socialize and play, you will NOT be let in to breakfast late. Be responsible. Be respectful. Be there and be ready!

 Behavior Expectations:  PBIS

Make sure to review the PBIS, (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) expectations here at Victory. Click here for the Victory’s Eagle Expectations video!    HERE IS THE NEW VIDEO! THANK YOU SPENCER BLESI!

 Middle School:   7th & 8th Graders

Middle school Parent/Teacher meetings will be taking place this year. Please click Victory 7th-8th Grade Meeting Dates to see the times and dates so that you can participate. Also, it’s never too early to explore high school choices.

 Dress Code:

Respectful and Appropriate Clothing

Being comfortable and ready for learning is important to both student and teacher. Please remember that you live in Wisconsin, which experiences all four seasons. Students MUST dress appropriately for the weather. Also, please dress respectfully for both yourself and for your fellow students. Clothing that is too revealing, short, tight, or baggy is NOT permitted here at Victory. Parents, take a quick note of your student(s) before they leave and support our school’s mission in respectful and appropriate clothing.

 School Supplies List:  2014-15

Parents please click here for a supplies list for your student(s).  Remember to add :  4 boxes of tissue, 2 disinfectant wipes, and 2 boxes of gallon size Zip-Loc bags.

These materials are always needed for every classroom and are in high need throughout the year. Please consider asking your child’s teacher if they are in need of more as the year progresses.

 Lunch Information: 2014-15

As of now, MPS will be offering free breakfast and lunch to ALL of its students. If you are a cold lunch student and want a milk, you will have to purchase that separately at a cost of $0.40. Please note, if you are going to receive a free lunch just for the free milk, the extra food taken becomes a waste. Please be mindful of your choices.
