Welcome back for staff and students. I thought the first day went very well. The transition for all students for classes, new staff, online classes and especially for 6th graders went smoothly thanks to all the staff and secretaries for getting schedules to everyone. I believe the seniors will have a successful year and that they will set a positive tone for the entire school to follow.
Thursday we welcomed the first Red Oak students who are taking several of Mr. Grebin's classes for the semester. We hope that this will be a positive experience for them, similar to the experience that Stanton students have had taking classes in Red Oak.
Finally, your community support of our students and staff is essential for our activities being successful. Our staff and students recognize that your support and your attendance is a big part of their success. We know that not all of you have children or relatives participating but hope you choose to enjoy the events. We hope that while you attend the activities you see friends, enjoy the meals before games and cheer on the Viqueens and Vikings. We also encourage you to get an activity ticket. It is a large savings when you take into account all the home contests for the entire year. For more information call Tammy or Christi in the office at 712-829-2162.
High school students will have until Monday, August 29th to notify the office of changes to their schedules. They will need to have it approved by Mrs. Mainquist and then get a change of schedule sheet from the office. The classroom teachers and parents must sign this form. It must be returned to the office by Tuesday, morning at 8:10.
Students wishing to drop an online college class must do so by Friday, August 26.

The Viking Center flag football program will be entering our 3rd year this fall! We are looking to have two teams, one for grades 1st-3rd and one for 4th-6th (some 3rd graders may play up depending on numbers). This will be a 6 week program, with the first practice on Tuesday August 30th. Practices will be held each week on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:00 PM-6:15 PM. Games will be held on Saturday mornings and Sunday afternoons, depending on the opponent and where we will play. Details on the game schedule are TBD, but the games will be played here in Stanton at Anderson Park, Red Oak, and Villisca. Kids who are participating in flag football this year will have the opportunity to play at halftime of the varsity home game on Friday September 9th.
The t-shirts that have been used the past couple of years will be used again this year. The cost of the program for members will either be FREE if a shirt is not needed, or $10 if a shirt is needed. The cost for non-members is $30 if a shirt is not needed, or $40 if a shirt is needed. T-shirts will be used as jerseys for the kid’s to wear on game days.
The schedule will be coming soon as we approach our first practice. Registration forms can be found at the Viking Center and on our website at: www.stantonvikingcenter.com.
