Love and Logic offers a practical, positive and fun approach to maintain and grow happy
families. There is no more difficult, detailed and time consuming job than raising children.
This class can be the manual you may need to learn how to: avoid power struggles, guide
your children to solve their own problems, model and teach responsibility and respectful
communication and raise your children without raising the roof. In this particular seminar
we will be focusing specifically on the early childhood years of toddler and preschool age
children. A future seminar will be held focusing on older children.

Sees Lollipops 

The office now has See's lollipops for sale. Each one is $1.00. The current flavors are chocolate and butterscotch, but we will be adding vanilla and coffee in

All money from these sales go to support Mrs. Wendt's wacky science program with Susie Scientist.



Don't forget to save Boxtops for TVA!

TVA collects pink boxtops! Boxtops are found on General Mills, Natures, Valleys, Yoplait, and Neslte 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 through the BTFE website: http://www.boxtops4education.com. All you have to do is go through the BTFE marketplace to access many difference sites such as Gap, BabiesRus, BestBuy, Groupon, Expedia, Travelocity, Petco and many more. Please check out the store!

We will continue our teacher incentive. Any teacher who collects over 1,000 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 7 through 10 will get half of what they bring in for their class accounts.

Unfortunately 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 me at bethrjames@comcast.net

Important Message From Mr. Chamberlain

Please make sure your child wears PE shoes (tennis shoes) to PE. Its is 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 their dress/skirt for PE.

Thank you,

James Chamberlain
Athletic Director

Library Corner


Thank you for your support of our Book Fair this year! We were able to purchase several new items for the Library and classrooms. We appreciate you!

Now for some beginning of the year housekeeping...

The best way to communicate with the library is through email as we cannot always get to our phone during class times. Please add library@tvja.org to your email address book.

Library classes have started. Material checkout time is 2 weeks. Due dates are stamped on the due date slips attached to all library materials.

Late fines will not accrue during 1st quarter. Starting 2nd quarter, late fines are charged at .10 per day after the 3 day grace period. We do our best to watch student accounts and remind them to return their materials. Families are notified of fines at the end of the 2nd and 3rd quarters and at the end of May/early June. Fines are payable upon notification. Should your student accrue fines, please put the fine amount in an envelope with your student’s name on it and turn it in to the office. Fines not paid by the end of the school year will be added to the final bill and assessed an additional $3 charge.

Our library catalog can be searched from your computer at home. Searches can be done by title, author and key words. Please bookmark https://tvalibrary.goalexandria.com.

Accelerated Reader (AR) is a program that TVA uses to promote reading improvement. Books from the TVA library have the AR information on the cover of the book. When using books from another library or home, it is easy to find the AR level using the website www.arbookfind.com. Families can search to find test numbers, what reading level a book is and how many points a book is worth. Additional information such as plot summary, topics/subtopics and series information can be found by clicking on the title.

We look forward to a great year. Happy Reading!
