We are already in May! This month is FULL of events, celebrations, and of course State Testing. We have some exciting news that just came from the district office…Tahoe Valley Elementary had the highest attendance rate out of ANY school in LTUSD, 95%!!! We earned the incentive award which is one-time monies that we can use for our school. It is due to the hard work of our families, students and staff to ensure all students came to school every day and on time. This will truly make a difference here at Tahoe Valley.
Our dedicated families are what make our school so strong! With State Testing for grades 3-5 on the horizon, there is one more way you can help our school. It is VITAL that your child comes to school every day during State Testing, May 12-22. It is equally important that your child comes to school ready to demonstrate their knowledge and learning. You can support your child by making sure they eat healthy breakfasts and snacks, and that they get a full 8 hours of sleep daily during this testing period. Research has shown over and over that these simple tasks make BIG gains in the testing format. Thank you for making sure your child does their best!
We will be hosting our first annual TAHOE VALLEY TALENT SHOW on Friday, May 8th. The students auditioned, and have been practicing their hearts out, created their costumes, and will demonstrate their talents for the public here in our Multi-Purpose Room. Dinner will be available from 5:00-6:00 p.m. with SHOWTIME! at 6:00-7:00 p.m. All money raised is going directly to the Tahoe Valley Scholarship Fund. These scholarships are given to students who attended Tahoe Valley Elementary between grades K-5 and are pursuing a higher education. The awards will be given out at the High School Awards Ceremony this month. We have a lot of donated items that will be raffled off too. Come have fun and help support our students past and present!
Open House is on May 28th. This special evening is open to the public and is where our students can proudly show off their work and accomplishments. Open House is from 5:30-7:00 p.m. Prospective families are also welcomed to attend and see what Tahoe Valley is all about! Just a reminder that this day is also a minimum day and the students will be released at 1:00 so teachers and staff have time to get our school ready for the opening at 5:30.
There are SO MANY field trips, events and assemblies planned. Please make sure you visit our School Events Calendar so you don’t miss out on any of them.
