Attention Vikings! 

The juniors and seniors are teaming up to bring you some cheer by selling candy cane grams during the school lunches this week. For just $1 you can write a friendly message to any of your schoolmates or teachers and have it delivered with a red and white striped treat at the end of the day, next Tuesday, December 23rd. Don't leave for winter break without letting your friends and teachers know you appreciate them by sending them a candy cane gram!
