Awesome Times At Victory School!

Helping Out Our Community

A huge thank you to Maestra Laurenzi for setting up Victory’s 5th annual food drive for the Hunger Task Force of Milwaukee. This year Victory School collected 1800lbs of food for our community!

Maestra Enrica’s 4th graders and Ms. Rahlf and Ms. Schwanz’ 3rd graders did an amazing job with donating and keeping the spirit of competition alive. Maestra Enrica’s 4th graders did win the PTO pizza party, but the 3rd graders did such a great job that PTO will also throw them a pizza party. Congrats rm. 112 and rm 121. Way to help out your community.

Rm. 109, Maestra Laurenzi’s students, are holding a toiletry drive for the Milwaukee’s Homeless Veterans Initiative. Her class was able to meet a veteran family that has been assisted by the MHVI to get back on their feet. It was a great experience to see how our efforts help out our community. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________

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. Click MPS High School Open House Dates 14-15 to see times and dates of high school open house times.

 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.
