Week of February 17-21, 2020

Dear Parents,

Spring Parent Conferences will take place this Thursday, February 20, 2020 from 5:00 – 7:00 PM.  We are looking forward to hosting this event and partnering with you for your student’s success.  If you would like to schedule a conference with one of your student’s teachers, please contact the front office by 12:00 PM on Thursday to schedule an appointment.  Parent involvement is essential to student success!

Mental Health lessons will be provided to students in February and March in accordance with state statute. Today was our first day of Mental Health lessons.  Lessons will also be delivered on the following dates:  February 24, March 2, March 9, and March 30.  Please discuss the lessons with your student when they return home from school.  In addition, guidance counselors and the school social worker are available to support our students during the school days.

Congratulations to our students that participated in the Science Fair last week.  Viera High School had many students recognized at the awards ceremony on Saturday evening.  A big thank you to Ms. Youngs, our Science Research teacher, who guided our students through these projects and provided them with this wonderful experience.

The Viera High School Wind Ensemble has been invited to perform at the prestigious Music for All National Festival held in Indianapolis, Indiana, March 12-14, 2020. Viera High School’s selection was based on the results of a panel of adjudicators review of submitted audio recordings. Twenty-four bands from across the nation will perform as part of this festival. In addition to the performance, which includes written and recorded evaluation, the wind ensemble will have a 30-minute clinic that will involve three evaluators who will work simultaneously with each band.

We are in the process of putting together a mentor program for our students.  Anyone interested in mentoring or in need of a mentor please email the School Social Worker at coello.sarina@brevardschools.org

Our Food Pantry is in need of some items. If you would like to donate, please contact Ms. Coello, School Social Worker.

Every senior should have the opportunity to attend PROM!  If you are a senior in need of a dress or suit please stop by Mrs. Coello’s office this week or next week.  She will have some prom dresses and may have some suits available for students.
