We have some new and exciting programs which we are implementing this year. We just had our first concert with our fourth grade students performing on their new Recorders. They performed in two concerts and played three musical pieces. These students are learning how to read music, play in concert with others, learning general music rhythms, and enjoying creating musical sounds. We LOVE our visual and performing arts programs!!! Our phenomenal music/choral teacher, Ms. Little, just keeps looking for more ways to build our performing arts. She is working to secure funding to take a group of choral performers to festival in the Spring. If you know of any possible donors, please contact Ms. Little at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have worked hard to build an inclusive environment here at Tahoe Valley. We have implemented our Positive Behavior, Intervention and Supports (PBIS) program and continue to work on refining the process. Our data has shown significant reduction in our referrals and the severity of issues. Every student is being empowered to be the best student possible and to show leadership in a variety of ways. We are proud of our Thunderbirds.
Thank you also to Nick Akins a local artist. Our new mural is located on the outside wall of our Greenhouse Outdoor Learning Amphitheater. Local artist, Nick Akins, design and painted this work of art. It is featured on the front page of the Tahoe Daily Tribune. Thank you to Nick for sharing his craft and legacy with our school.
