Home and School Meetings
Meetings happen the first Thursday of each month from 7-8 PM in the Spynergy Room. Please note that the September meeting will be held in conjunction with our annual school picnic on September 3rd and that the January meeting will be held on January 9th, after returning from Christmas Break. Look at the school calendar for upcoming meeting dates!
Remember, attending Home and School meetings counts towards service hours!
The Home and School Association, or HSA, is our parent volunteer based organization. Our mission is to provide TVA with funds, programs, resources, and support that will enhance our children’s experience. We encourage communication and cooperation between parents and staff to ensure that children receive the best possible comprehensive education.
Home and School helps foster the connection of our students, parents, teachers, and churches. HSA encourages the connection with families and school to build and nurture a positive environment which enriches the student’s learning. To accomplish this, HSA offers monthly meetings to help connect families to school events and lets our parents have a voice in how to enrich the lives of their children.
Home and School Activities
HSA coordinates and funds the ArtSmart program which provides an early introduction to the arts for Preschoolers through 6th graders. Projects are done quarterly and are displayed during the annual open house event in the Spring.
HSA also organizes the annual Walk-a-thon. This event is the main fundraiser for the HSA. This event motivates the students to be active and helps provides additional funds for the school to aid with various projects. Previous projects include playground structure, computers for the elementary building, elementary entrance update, and the addition of new and exciting programs like Passport Club, theater, and Lego Robotics.
Service hours will be reported using the binder next to the Secretary’s office. Please remember to include sign-in and sign-out times so your hours are accurately tracked.
Home and School Association coordinates and tracks each family’s required service hours. HSA is active throughout the school year helping coordinate volunteers for various projects and/or events. Some of these are listed below:
Back to school night- a chance to learn more about the teachers contributing to the education of the children.
Classroom parents- to provide help by coordinating with our teachers
Holiday Bazaar- helps coordinate community involvement and raises additional funding.
Harvest festival- a fun event for the students and staff to help foster the relationships between families and the school.
Annual staff appreciation- We love our staff and celebrate them everyday, but this specific designated week, lavishes our staff with words of appreciation for their dedication to the academic growth of our children.
Ways to Engage
There are several ways to help support our school all year long.
Pray - Please join us in praying that we will seek Jesus as the only source of our strength, creativity and love, that our 8 constituent churches and school can be united as one team and for ways to engage more people in Home and School.
Attend Events - Come to our sponsored events! We love to hear your story and learn your name!
Volunteer - Earn service hours while supporting Home and School events.
Check With Your Employer - Many employers offer ways to help support your child's school. Check with your employer about school gift matching or payment for service hours.
Shop - Several stores that you may shop at already will donate a percentage of your purchase to the school of your choice. Fred Meyer, Target and Amazon all have ways to donate.
Ideas - Has God put an idea on your heart for TVA? Perhaps it is in the form of a question - "Why don't they do...?" We'd love to hear it! The formulation of one great idea comes from working through many individual ones. Let's talk!
