Monday-Send your teacher/staff a message in a bottle! (we will provide the supplies)
Tuesday-Sail the high seas with a sugar high. Give your teacher/staff a sweet treat!
Wednesday-Navigating the high seas, teachers/staff get thirsty. Give them their favorite beverage! 
Thursday-Use a life preserver. Give your teacher/staff their favorite treat!
Friday- Our teachers/staff are the beacons of knowledge. Give them a book!

We also need volunteers to supervise classrooms and recess on Thursday, during the Teacher/Staff Luncheon 11am-12noon. Please check with Monica at front office to make sure you have a current background check on file.

Please help us make this week extra special for our teachers and staff that make a difference in our children's lives! Our teachers and staff work hard to ensure the students have an amazing education.

Thank you,
Home & School

Library Corner

Open House is an exciting time in the library. Why you ask? It's an opportunity to showcase all our fantastic readers!

This year we'll be displaying student book reports throughout the library. Book report forms are available at school in the library and were emailed with the Thursday note. You'll find two book report forms; one for grades PreK through 2nd and the other for grades 3-6. For grades PreK through 2nd, students may pic whichever book they would like and answer the questions. (Parents may write for children who need help in PreK and Kinder) For grades 3-6, students must pick a book of their choice in their reading level and answer the questions.

Book reports are due to the library by March 13th by end of school day.

Each student that turns in a book report will find their awesome work on display at Open House. There is even a reward for the hard work! After Spring Break, students in grades PreK through 4 will be able to pick a free book to take home. Students in grades 5-6 will receive a Scholastic Book Certificate food for the free book of their choice through their classroom Scholastic Book Orders.

As always, contact me at library@tvja.org with questions.
