Kindergarten Preview

Do you have a student entering Kindergarten next fall?

Come spend a day in Kindergarten to see what we are all about! Your child will join our Kindergarten class for circle time, music, PE, lunch and crafts. Parents will meet with the principal, take a tour of the school and get to know other TVA families.

We have two more Kindergarten preview events this year:

January 30 from 8:15 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
February 13 from 8:15 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Space is limited, so please call our school office at 503.649.5518 to reserve your spot.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Christmas Program


Dear TVA parents:

Our Christmas Concert is on TUESDAY, January 23rd at 6:30 pm. I have chosen an earlier time to better accommodate the younger students, and the program will be shorter, closer to an hour and 15 minutes.

The theme is Ring the Christmas Bells, as most classes are ringing bells.

With that said, please have your students back to the school and in their classrooms no later than 6:15 pm.

The children are welcome to wear anything that would be considered festive and dressier than regular school clothes. Boys can wear slacks, button down shirts, sweaters, bowties, regular ties, etc. No sweaters or ties with flashing lights and no jeans, please. Girls can wear slacks, dresses, skirts and tops, or sweaters. Also, no jeans or flashing lights.

If you have specific questions please feel free to contact me at aboyer@tvja.org or call the school and leave me a message. I’ll be sure to get back to you.

Thank you! I’m looking forward to a great concert!

Mrs. Boyer
