2019 Open House at the TVA Library

books.jpg

One of the many fantastic things about TVA is that our school is full of readers!  Open House is the perfect time to showcase the wide variety of books that our bookworms enjoy.  Our Open House display this year will feature short book reviews written by students. This year, I would like to highlight favorite OBOB books students have read.  If your student has participated in OBOB, please encourage them to think about a book that they felt a particular connection to and ask them to fill out the review.  Additionally, if you have pictures of your student participating in an OBOB competition, would you forward those to me at library@tvja.org?  I get so busy with the competitions that I forget to take pictures. 

If your student has not participated in OBOB – that’s ok!  I’d love to hear about other book connections students have made.  All students are invited to participate!

Copies of the book review form are attached to the Thursday Note (Click Here) and will also be sent home with students in their homework folders.  Additional copies may also be found in the Library and in the Lobby.  Parents are encouraged to assist their younger student in completing the form.

All Book Reviews are due by the end of school March 12th.  Feel free to contact me with any questions via email, library@tvja.org.

Thanks in advance for your help!

2019 Open House at the TVA Library

books.jpg

One of the many fantastic things about TVA is that our school is full of readers!  Open House is the perfect time to showcase the wide variety of books that our bookworms enjoy.  Our Open House display this year will feature short book reviews written by students. This year, I would like to highlight favorite OBOB books students have read.  If your student has participated in OBOB, please encourage them to think about a book that they felt a particular connection to and ask them to fill out the review.  Additionally, if you have pictures of your student participating in an OBOB competition, would you forward those to me at library@tvja.org?  I get so busy with the competitions that I forget to take pictures. 

If your student has not participated in OBOB – that’s ok!  I’d love to hear about other book connections students have made.  All students are invited to participate!

Copies of the book review form are attached to the Thursday Note (Click Here) and will also be sent home with students in their homework folders.  Additional copies may also be found in the Library and in the Lobby.  Parents are encouraged to assist their younger student in completing the form.

All Book Reviews are due by the end of school March 12th.  Feel free to contact me with any questions via email, library@tvja.org.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Message from Mr. Chamberlain

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,

We are working on some ideas to make drop off and pick up go smoothly. There have been some concerns that have come up at pick up and drop off times. Here are some important procedures to follow:

  • If you need to assist your child out of the car, please park your car first so as to lessen the traffic jam.

  • Drive slowly. There are parents and kids walking through the parking lot.

  • Continually remind your child to look both ways when walking in the parking lot and to not run after getting out of your car.

  • Refrain from checking your phone while driving through the parking lot or while waiting for the cars to move forward.

  • Thank you for helping us keep our parking lot safe!

We recently tested our water for lead and we are happy to announce that all of our faucets and drinking fountains are well below the recommended guidelines for traces of lead. We want to ensure you that your child’s health is a high priority here at Tualatin Valley Academy.


Message from Mr. Chamberlain

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
Athletic Director

Payments

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.

Thank you!
