Important Library Information

books.jpg

It’s hard to believe we are almost to Q2This is just a reminder that starting October 30th we will begin assessing overdue fines at .10 per day.  There is a 4 day grace period before fines are charged.  We do our best to remind students to return their library materials in a timely manner.  If you are wondering when a book is due, check the date due slip on the material that was checked out.

Paper notifications of overdue fines are sent home at the end of the quarter.  Fines are payable in cash only at the office.  Please put payment in an envelope with your child’s name on it and turn it into the office.

Lost books happen.  If your student has lost a book at your home and you are still looking for it, please drop me an email (library@tvja.org) so that we can renew the book and you can avoid overdue charges until the book is found.  If the book is truly lost, please let us know as soon as possible.  Books tend to reappear before the school year is out so we don’t charge for lost books until June. 

Have a fantastic weekend and happy reading!

Mrs. Coggin

Home & School meeting tonight, Thursday, October 4 at 7 pm in the cafeteria/BASE room.


Get Ready For Our Walk -A-Thon on Friday, October 5, 2018!

Tomorrow is our Walk-a-thon! Some have asked why it was moved to the fall instead of having it in the spring, like in past years. At the end of last year, we noticed that our biggest school fundraiser was being done at the end of the school year and that funds that were raised would not be used until the following school year. We decided to move it to the fall so that the funds could be used for the current school year.

Here is some important information for tomorrow:

  • We still need volunteers. If you are able to volunteer, please call our front office, 503-649-5518

  • It might rain. Please send an extra change of clothes, socks, and shoes with your child

  • Have your child bring their pledge form. This form also serves as a permission to run and a waiver.


Parking Lot Safety

parking.jpg

We are working on some ideas to make drop off and pick up go smoothly. There have been some concerns that have come up at pick up and drop off times. Here are some important procedures to follow:

  • If you need to assist your child out of the car, please park your car first so as to lessen the traffic jam.

  • Drive slowly. There are parents and kids walking through the parking lot.

  • Continually remind your child to look both ways when walking in the parking lot and to not run after getting out of your car.

  • Refrain from checking your phone while driving through the parking lot or while waiting for the cars to move forward.

  • Thank you for helping us keep our parking lot safe!

During the school year, if you are planning on going on vacation and your child will be absent from school for more than 1 day, please maker sure you complete a prearranged absence form 1 week before the event. This will give their teacher time to prepare the work your child will be missing during his/her absence.

Message from Mr. Chamberlain

pexels-photo-69376 (1).jpeg

Please make sure your child wears PE shoes (tennis shoes) to PE. Its very important for them to wear the appropriate shoes for participation and safety. In PE we do a lot of running, jumping, and are always on the move. We want to keep your kids safe and avoid any accidents.

Also, if your daughter wants to wear a dress/skirt to school, make sure they wear shorts under the dress/skirt for PE.

Thank you,
James Chamberlain
Athletic Director

Summer Reading and BINGO Challenge

bingo-491228_1920.jpg

Hello parents!

The countdown to summer vacation has begun (at least it has in my house)! We were fortunate to have a representative from the Hillsboro Library talk with our students about the summer reading program at chapel last week. Summer reading is really important to help kids prevent the summer slide or brain drain that happens. I would love to see each and every TVA student’s name on the list from the library at the end of summer.

Here you will find several BINGO cards with different reading activities. I love these cards because they include reading activities that aren’t just limited to books. Some examples are map reading, poetry, reading and making something from a recipe, reading road signs, reading to a younger child and visiting the library. Remember, reading to your student counts too! Students that complete a BINGO card and return it to the TVA library when school starts will receive a special prize.

Happy Summer!
