Students and Staff

Did you notice the flowers as you walked in?  The purple and orange flowers represent anti-violence and were planted by Vikings for Friendship.  These are a reminder to think before you act and that things you say have a permanent impact, positive or negative.  Consider this quote-Don’t make a permanent decision based on a temporary emotion.  Remember that you have more choices than you think you have.  Keep seeking the next option.
