Attention Parents and Students:

  It has been brought to my attention that a type of prescription medication was found on school grounds without being in the original container. I want to remind everyone that our policy at school requires all medications to be in their original container and brought to the office to be administered by trained staff. This includes any over the counter medications as well. Please keep your medications in the appropriate container in the office to prevent this from happening again. Thank you for complying with our school medication policy. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school.

ATHLETICS

Viking Football

  The Viking's 2016 football season ended in dramatic fashion last Friday in Bedford. The Vikings finished 6-3 overall and were in a position to make the playoffs. The coaching staff is very proud of the growth and improvements made as the season progressed. The coaching staff and athletes would like to say "Thank You!" to all of those groups and individuals who supported our team throughout the season. We really appreciated all of the positive support and encouragement. Also, a special, "Thanks!" to the parents for their commitment to their son's care of equipment and the team's nutrition before and after the away games! The team will be meeting this Thursday after school to turn in equipment and discuss plans for the off-season and the 2017 season. Thanks again for all the positive support!!

Viqueen Volleyball

  The Viqueens continue down the regional trail as they hosted Bedford on Tuesday, October 25th, for a quarter-final regional match.  The Viqueens won three straights sets for the victory with scores of (25-10, 25-16 and 25-19). The Viqueens traveled to Audubon last night for the regional semi-final match against Audubon. We loved seeing so many supporters in the crowd.

STANTON BETTERMENT ASSOCIATION ANNOUNCES: “CHECK OUT OUR VIEW!”

  The Stanton Betterment Association of Stanton announces that they are showcasing their community in a seven-minute promotional video. The video highlights the quality of life in Stanton such as housing, recreation, education, and traditions. To find the video, please visit: https://youtu.be/ITKEoWcJHug.

  “This project highlights and shows the city off in its best light.” said Justin Miller, member of the Stanton Betterment Association, which helped produce the new video. The video was created for the city’s new strategy to market itself to potential new residents, businesses and visitors.

  Stanton is located fifty-five minutes from the Omaha and Council Bluffs metro area and with the opening of the new highway 34 bridge it’s becoming more attractive for residents to commute from Southwest Iowa to the metro area for work and pleasure.

Booster Club

  The Stanton Athletic Booster Club would like to thank all of those individuals, families and businesses that have become members for the 2016-2017 athletic calendar year. Your membership in the Booster Club helps enable us to provide our athletes with the resources necessary to develop and maintain outstanding athletic teams in every sport, assisting in the purchase of athletic equipment, uniforms and awards for the athletes.  Without your support over the years so many things would not have been possible. A few things the Booster Club has recently done: purchased Junior High girls track uniforms, placed an ad in school yearbook, photo buttons for both Junior High and High School athletes and cheerleaders, parents’ night flowers and photos for athletes and cheerleaders, provided athletes with shirts for various achievements, donation to After-Prom, purchased awards for athletes at the Annual Athletic Banquet, donated money toward the purchase of the new baseball/softball scoreboard, and donated money for the purchase of new basketball backboards.
