Week of October 21-25, 2019

Dear Parents,

Secondary report cards will be issued on October 22, 2019.  Please continue to monitor your student’s grades throughout the year on Focus.  If your student needs additional support, please reach out to your student’s teachers. We also have after school peer tutoring that will begin on Monday, October 21, 2019.  Tutoring will take place each Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 3:30-4:30 PM in room 4-121.  If your student would like to participate in tutoring, please have him/her fill out a form in guidance and turn it in to Ms. Boone in room 4-121.  We are also looking for student volunteers to provide the tutoring.  Please have your student email Ms. Boone if they are interested and they will be provided with service hours.   If there are any questions, please reach out to Ms. Boone, who is coordinating the peer-tutoring program at boone.barbara@brevardschools.org

Viera High School will be hosting High School Parent Conference Night on Thursday, October 24, 2019 from 5:00-7:00 PM.  If you would like to meet with your student’s teacher(s) to discuss their academic progress, please contact the front office to schedule a parent teacher conference.

On Thursday, October 24, 2019 from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM, Viera HS Army JROTC will host a dinner here at Viera High School in the cafeteria.  The dinner will be prepared here by Carrabba's and will consist of chicken marsala, pasta, caesar salad and garlic bread.  We will also have a special guest speaker Colonel (Ret) Danny McKnight who will speak to us after dinner is over.  Colonel McKnight is a former Army Ranger Battalion Commander whose heroics are chronicled in the movie and book  "Black Hawk Down".  The cost of attending the dinner is $12.00 for Adults and $8.00 for kids 10 years and younger.  Carrabbas will be donating 50% of the proceeds back into our Viera HS Army JROTC Booster Club.

Last Monday, members of East Coast Christian Center renovated the staff room in the Building 4 Staff Lounge.  It looks incredible and is equipped with new furniture, a flat screen tv, couches, and a coffee maker for our staff!  I would like to say thank you to East Coast Christian Center for their work in renovating this room and making it a special place for our staff.  We are so thankful to have such generous business partners!
