***STEP IT UP Fundraiser  - 7th and 8th grade students, remember when we did that cool fundraiser with the cash, the sloths, the fridge filled with cash, the golden ticket? Due to the close down of school in the spring, we were not able to hand out prizes to students for the STEP IT UP Fundraiser. We are ready to make this up to you, our students that did a fabulous job of raising money for Vikan. If weather permits we will be doing a drive through to hand out prizes on Monday, Nov. 9th from 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm. If this impacts you we will be in touch.  

This historic year is different. The yearbook is going to be different, too. You will want to order your student’s copy of this unique book. We promise it’s one you won’t want to miss! Visit www.jostensyearbooks.com to order yours by November 6th for the lowest price!
