Thank You TVA Families!

Thank you for attending our Back to School Picnic and Orientation. It was so great to see our families present and learning more about this new school year. If you were not able to attend, please feel free to contact your teacher to get updated on what you may have missed. Our goal is to communicate to you in ways that meet your needs and one of those ways is through our website. Check out our Tualatin Valley Academy website frequently for announcements, school calendar, school handbook, and lunch menu. You can also request appointments, ask questions, and provide feed back through the PARENTS tab.

In order to go they will need your help. All proceeds from the Festival will go to help the TVA High School students get to Bible Camp. They will be selling food, and providing fun activities like games, pictures and more. It will be a fun afternoon and evening for all. All donations are welcome.

TVA does not accept credit cards or debit cards as a form of payment. We only accept checks and money orders for payments over $25.00. We accept cash for payments of $25 or less.

Another option for payment is to authorize the school treasurer to automatically withdraw funds each month. By filling out the Authorization Agreement for Direct Payments (ACH Debits), you never have to worry about missing a payment or incurring late fees.

Background Checks

Parents with students in K - 10th grade, just a reminder that in order for you to be able to participate in any school field trips, coaching, and/or volunteer in your child’s classroom, you need to turn in the Oregon Conference Volunteer Information Form ASAP. 

If you have a child in our preschool program, you need to complete the CBR form and mail it to the address on the form. When you receive your approval, please bring a copy to the office. This form is used to run a background check on adults that want to help out at school/go on field trips.

If you need a form, please stop by and pick up a form or call the office and we will be happy to mail you a form.

Walking and Biking to/from School


If you would like for your child to walk/bike to and from school, make sure you stop by the front office and complete a permission slip.

Parents need to complete one every school year.


Prearranged Absence Form

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.

If you need a form, you can pick one up at the front office or we will be happy to e-mail it to you.

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
