12.8.16 Thursday Note

Christmas Concert

Dear Parents and Students,

Our Christmas concert is fast approaching! The concert date is Wednesday, December 14th at 7:00 pm. We will be rehearsing Tuesday Dec, 13 during our regular class periods and the whole school rehearsal will be Wednesday Dec 14 during the morning. Please try to not be absent that day as everyone is an important part of this program.

I am asking that the students dress in festive clothing. Girls may wear dresses, but keep in mind that many of the students will be on stage, elevated above the seating, so it may be necessary for tights or leggings to be worn under the dresses for modesty. Girls may also wear slacks and tops if they choose.

Boys may wear LONG sleeve button front shirts with or without ties. If boys choose to wear a sweater or other style shirt, it must be long sleeved please. NO POPULAR DECORATIONS on the shirts, such as logos, team logos, characters or video game or movie characters. AND if possible, I would prefer the boys wear nice slacks rather than blue jeans.

For the students participating in the STOMP portion of the program (and they will know exactly who they are) it will be necessary for them to have plain black slacks or leggings and plain black t-shirts. If there is a financial issue with acquiring these, email me or call the school office and let us know. We can make arrangements to help with this.

I look forward to seeing everyone at the concert!!! It promises to be exciting and inspirational.

Friends and Family are all invited!!!

- Festively Yours, Mrs. Boyer

Piano Recital

I would like to invite our TVA families to this school year’s first piano recital! It will be held this Sunday, December 11th in our school gym at 4:00 p.m.

Come and see TVA’s students give their performance on stage.

See you there!

TVA’s Piano Teacher

Lost and Found

If your child is running out of things to wear, it is probably because it has a new home at our lost and found. Please take a minute to stop by and see if you recognize any clothes. If they are not claimed by December 21st, they will be donated to charity.

Christmas Break Office Hours

The school office will be CLOSED during our Christmas vacation December 22nd to January 4th.

Speed Stacks

Is your child into speed stacking?

Speed stacking is a sport where participants stack plastic cups in a specific sequence as fast as possible. It can be played individually or as part of a team.

TVA is selling speed stack cups in the front office. They make great gifts! Pink leopard cups are 4 for $19 and the neon pink and neon orange are $17 each. 

Happy stacking!
