Over the last week, 25 Viking volunteers assembled and delivered Valentine's Day care packages to the entire AHS team, both at school and at work-from-home. A big Friends of Amundsen thanks to all of you for everything you do for our students every day!
The Viking Navigators will be back on Monday, February 8th, to support students who cannot find their semester 2 classes. Although we think most students have been told by their teachers about where to go on Monday, we know that students who have new schedules may be lost. Students who need assistance can visit meet.google.com and type in "Viking Navigators" to get help from an Amundsen staff member. The room opens at 7:30AM and will be available throughout the day. We encourage students to visit the student portal as well to look for links to their new Google Classrooms before they visit the Navigators since most information should be there. Please reach out to Ms. Murray or Mr. Nguyen with any questions.
Get your cap and gown and take your photos!
