There are so many changes happening; the weather, the time change, and school programs and events! Vision and Hearing screenings are happening this month along with Picture Day.
Our Walk-a-Thon was a HUGE success thanks to the hard work of our PTA, students, staff, and families!!!! We raised over $11,000 with our annual event. Everyone was flexible with the change of weather which forced us to quickly change the date of our event. The students loved it though. Mr. Glen was our DJ and spun the tunes which inspired our walkers. PTA is holding our Harvest Fest on Friday, October 24th. Watch for more information to come out.
Parent-Teacher Conferences are in progress. I have personally attended quite a few. I love hearing the progress that the students are making and how proud they are of their successes.
We have our first Tahoe Arts Project (TAPs) performance coming up this next week. We will be enjoying the music of India with Blue13.
Tahoe Valley is participating in the statewide emergency drill "The Great California Shake Out". This is a drill which involves all agencies and schools throughout California to make sure we are all earthquake safe. It happens at 10/16 at 10:16 a.m.
On Saturday, October 18th we will be holding our first TK/Kindergarten Clean-Up Day and Playground Design. Please join us from 10:00-12:00 and help us clean up the playground "Forest" area so our youngest students can have the opportunity to play and explore their natural surroundings in a safe way. We will also be brainstorming what equipment and experiential areas we want to add so our students have the "Full Array" of muscle development, social development and fun experiences during recesses.
Lastly I want to add that student attendance is in the news and research reports. They have shown that there is a direct link between student attendance and student academic success which correlated to higher earnings as an adult. Please make sure you do all you can to make sure your child/ren come to school daily and on time. You child deserves the best future possible.
