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.

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.
