Dear TVA parents:
Our Christmas Concert is TUESDAY, December 19th at 6:30 pm. I have chosen an earlier time to better accommodate the younger students. And the program will be shorter, closer to an hour and 15 minutes.
The theme is Ring the Christmas Bells, as most classes are ringing bells.
With that said, please have your students back to the school and in their classrooms no later than 6:15 pm.
The children are welcome to wear anything that would be considered festive and dressier than regular school clothes. Boys can wear slacks, button down shirts, sweaters, bowties, regular ties, etc. No sweaters or ties with flashing lights and no jeans, please. Girls can wear slacks, dresses, skirts and tops, or sweaters. Also, no jeans or flashing lights.
If you have specific questions please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school and leave me a message. I’ll be sure to get back to you.
Thank you! I’m looking forward to a great concert!
As the weather changes, please make sure your child dresses warmly when coming to school.
If your child arrives between 8:00 a.m. and 8:15 a.m. please take your child to BASE so they can stay warm until our front doors open. For your convenience, BASE will stop charging at 8:00 a.m. every morning. Our front doors open at 8:15 a.m.

TVA collects pink boxtops! Boxtops are found on General Mills, Natures Valley, Yoplait, and Nestle products to name a few.
TVA runs a contest in the spring for each grade, so start working on your collections now! Ask friends and family to collect as well You can also earn e-boxtops by doing your online shopping though the btfe website: http://www.boxtops4education.com.
All you have to do go through the btfe marketplace to access many different sites such as Gap, BabiesRus, BestBuy, Groupon, Expedia, Travelocity, Petco and many more. Please check out the store!
We will be continuing our teacher incentive. Any teacher who collects over 1000 boxtops will get 20% of the money they bring in back for their classroom. If you are looking for ways to help out teachers in the classroom, but don’t have a lot of time this is one way to help!
Grades 7th through 10th will get half of what they bring in for their class accounts.
The Labels for Education program through Campbells has ended, so we are no longer collecting those.
If you have any questions about either feel free to contact Beth James at email@example.com.
