9.1.16 Thursday Note
School Picnic Tonight
Don’t forget that tonight is our annual school picnic. Dinner will be at 5:00 p.m. in the covered area by the playground. Parent orientation will be at 6:00 p.m. in the school’s gym. You will also be able to visit with your child’s teacher and get information on homework, field trips, and the best way to communicate with them. This is a fun family event you don’t want to miss.
Are You Going to Be On Campus? Please Sign In!
All Parents and visitors MUST sign in at the front office and get a Visitor or Volunteer Pass when on school grounds. This includes bringing lunch to your child, having lunch with your child in the cafeteria/classroom, or when volunteering.
Just to clarify that lunch served in the cafeteria is not included in the school tuition. Your child can have lunch from the cafeteria at an additional charge that will be added to your school bill provided your account is up to date.
The fees are...
Preschool & Kindergarten: $3.50 each
1st to 6th: $4.25 each
7th & 9th Grade: $4.75 each
Kids who forget their lunch will get hot lunch from the cafeteria and the charge will be added to your account.
Next Wednesday, September 7th will be our school picture day. Order forms will be going home today.
If for some reason your child is absent that day, we will have our retake picture day on Wednesday, October 26th.
In an effort to keep costs down for our families, 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. Thank you for your understanding!
Parents with students in K - 9th 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 one, please stop by the office or call the office and we will be happy to mail you one.
Does Your Child Walk or Bike to School?
If you would like for your child to walk/bike to and from school, make sure you complete a permission slip at the front office. Parents need to complete one every school year.
Our annual magazine sale will kick off on Friday, September 9th! Please note that all magazine orders are due on Friday, September 23rd. Prizes will be passed out on Wednesday, September 28th in the school lobby in the morning. Thank you for supporting our Home and School.
If your child is going to another student’s house after school, please make sure that the office has a written note giving them permission to do so or give us a call.
This also applies if your child is going to a birthday party with another student right after school and if your child is carpooling with another parent to an away game.
All play dates must be arranged at home and not during school or after school.
Violin lessons are offered during school hours on Tuesdays at TVA this year! Ages 5 and up, all levels welcomed.

Prearranged Absence Form
During the school, if your are planning on going on vacation and your child will be absent from school more than 1 day, please make sure you complete a prearranged absence form 1 week before the event. This will give teacher time to prepare the work your child will be missing during his/her absence.
