ITBS Testing

It's that time of year again! ITBS testing started on Monday, September 26th for 3rd to 9th grade and it will continue through October 6th. To help your child do their best, please make sure they get a good night's sleep and a good breakfast each day!

A quick reminder: There is NO SCHOOL on Friday, October 7th (Teacher Inservice) and on Monday, October 31st (Teacher report card prep day).


Did you know you can help TVA raise funds at zero cost to you while shopping for things like groceries?

When you buy SCRIP, you are getting a dollar-for-dollar exchange (for example, you pay $10 for a $10 gift card to the store of your choice). Another bonus is that you don't have to buy anything you wouldn't ordinarily buy! Have a birthday, holiday or other event coming up? Consider giving a gift card through SCRIP! Have your usual groceries to purchase at Fred Meyer? Use SCRIP to buy them! 

TVA will receive between 3% and 43% profit on the gift cards you purchase, depending on the store. All proceeds are going towards upgrading TVA's heating and cooling systems. 

Turn in days are every 3rd Tuesday of the month by 10:00 a.m. and pickup is on Friday of the same week. To download the order form, click here

The next SCRIP order is due Tuesday, October 18th by 10AM. 

Some of the stores, restaurants, or entertainment places you can purchase SCRIP for are: 

Fred Meyer
Bed, Bad, & Beyond
J.C. Penney

Tell your friends and family about the SCRIP program, and see if they can help raise funds for TVA while they shop too!

Week of Prayer

Week of Prayer is a special time every year when TVA comes together as a family to draw closer to God. TVA will be having its annual week of prayer starting on Monday, October 24th to Friday, October 28th.

All are welcome to join us. More information coming soon. 

Picture Retakes

If your child didn’t get a chance to take their picture or if you didn’t like the way they came out, you will have the chance to retake them on Wednesday, October 26th.

If your child is retaking their pictures, please make sure you bring the complete packet to return to the photographer on October 26th.

8th Grade Jamba Juice Fundraiser


Help TVA’s 8th grade class raise funds for their class trip! The class will be selling Jamba Juice Cards at $10 each.

Here's how it works: 

The fundraising cards include eight $3 medium size smoothies (typically valued at $5-6 each) and a bonus coupon for a free small smoothie. If the guest redeems all eight smoothies plus the bonus smoothie, then there is a savings of $20 per card. A pretty sweet deal!

You can purchase a card at the front office or you can buy them from a TVA 8th grade student. The last day to purchase a card is October 17th.
