Our school is in full swing. We have many new families who have just moved to the Lake Tahoe area joining us this year. We want to welcome each and every one of you and hope your school year is the most memorable one you will ever have. Our school year began with a Welcome Extravaganza. Our staff was out front on opening day, welcoming each and every student. Music was playing to help set the mood, and a fun balloon arch leading into our school provided the perfect backdrop. This is just a taste of the Tahoe Valley fun.
We have expanded our TK program again this year, with four full classrooms. We have the amazing teaching team of Mrs. Shanks and Ms. Shanks as two of our TK teachers. Mrs. Shanks was seen for the last two years volunteering around our school almost daily. She stepped in to take over our additional TK class. Mrs. Shanks comes to us from Wisconsin and taught TK for over 20 years. (Although in Wisconsin it is called 4K.) Her smile is infectious and her positive attitude is above bar.
Walk-a-Thon is set for this coming Friday. This is the event of the year and sets off our school with a bang. The music plays, kids and adults walk the field, laughter and smiles are the currency of the day. Please join us and volunteer your time. You won’t be disappointed.
PTA will be kicking off their Membership Drive. Please fill out your Membership envelopes and share with your family as well. They are more than able to join and will enjoy the benefits of the PTA organization too. The one thing to know about Tahoe Valley PTA is that 100% of the funds raised at each and every PTA event goes directly to pay for field trips, assemblies, and student materials and resources. We put our money where it matters; directly for the kids!!!!
