The Technology Student Association fosters personal growth, leadership, and opportunities in technology, innovation, design, and engineering.

Viking Book League is for grades 6th – 8th and we focus on a book a month that peaks the interest of those participating. These books will transition from fiction to nonfiction. Any student can join as long as they have a permission slip, agree to bring snacks for one meeting, and obtain their own copy of the book. Our goal after each book is to make contact with the author and interview him/her about the book. Students will submit questions and conduct the interview when possible.
Do you like to write? Come join us at Viking Ink to find others who like to write. You will find a peaceful place to think and write. Get ideas from others when you are stuck. Listen to others to get inspiration if you are struggling to start. You can have others read your work if you choose. You can give feedback to others and get feedback from them. Through Google and other technology you have the ability to work on projects outside of Viking Ink time.

Hello Future Vikings,
Wow! This is not how I wanted to relay all the good information I have for you! I truly miss seeing your faces when I talk about all the great sports we have to offer you at Hefner! I miss all your great questions! So, I hope in this letter I am able to answer them and if I miss any, please don’t hesitate to email me and ask questions that I did not cover.
★ To participate in ANY sport, you will have to have a sports physical completed by your doctor or care physician. The date on the physical HAS TO BE AFTER MAY 1ST 2021! These physicals are good for the full school year. It will be good for all sports throughout the year that you want to try out for. You will turn them into Coach Pence! Parents please keep a copy!
★ RANKONE!! Each athlete that makes the team will need the Rankone forms filled out. Once you fill out all 6 forms then they are good for each sport they want to tryout for. I have attached the Rankone information sheet to this as well.
★ These four sports start before…YES, I SAID BEFORE school actually starts. Usually around the 1st of August: Football, Softball, Volleyball, and Cross Country.
★ In October these two sports will be available: Basketball & Wrestling.
★ In February these two sports will be available: Soccer & Track.
★ Yes, you can play multiple sports. All coaches highly encourage it!
★ Never played a sport before! GREAT, this is the PERFECT time to try out and learn the sport. Our coaches at Hefner will prepare you and teach you the basic skills and rules of that sport.
★ We provide the jerseys and equipment. The things you will need to provide:
o Football – cleats, mouth guard, water bottle.
o Softball – cleats (first year ever to play purchase rubber cleats), 12-12 ½ inch glove, water bottle, sunscreen, sun visor or hat, weather appropriate clothing. Always be prepared to practice outside or inside.
o Volleyball – gym shoes, knee pads, and water bottle.
o Cross Country – running shoes, water bottle, sunscreen, cooling towel.
o Basketball – basketball shoes and water bottle.
o Wrestling – wrestling shoes and water bottle.
o Track – running shoes (depending if they are a sprinter then they will possibly need shoes with spikes), sunscreen, water bottle.
o Soccer – cleats, soccer socks, and water bottle.
★ Most practices will be after school. Some may be at 6am which will be during the basketball season. You must be picked up within 15 minutes of practice ending. Make arrangements if needed. If the athlete is late being picked up it can cause possible elimination from the team. Biggest thing is to CONTACT the coach in advance so they can be prepared.
★ Each sport will have a parent and athlete meeting before the season to answer any questions you may have. This is a MANDATORY meeting not optional!
★ Being a STUDENT ATHLETE is huge at Hefner! You will be held accountable to attend every practice and keep your grades up. If any of your classes drop below a 70 which is a C. You will be put on probation for a week, which means you will have consequences or possibly missing practice and attending tutoring. If your grade does not improve the following week you will be not eligible to participate in any games that week. You will still participate in practices but will not be able to play!
