K-2 Clubs

"You Teach" Students get the chance to be the teacher! Join Mrs. Roddy as we trade places allowing the students to teach us about their passions through visuals, movements, annotations, videos and more about what they love most! I hope you will join us as we trade places.

Economics- Students create their own business all while learning the value of economic responsibility. In this class students will learn basic principles of economics such as needs, wants, deposit, withdrawal, consumer, and producers. This unit will end with students creating their own good/service to present to others and receive feedback on their product. We hope you join us for a unit filled with fun and learning!

STEM Club- In this club, K-2 students will have the opportunity to become scientists, mathematicians, and engineers by engaging in different experiments, activities, and virtual field trips!

3-5 Clubs

Art Club- Each meeting we will focus on a different artist and make our own art inspired by the artist. Simple supplies needed. Blank paper, ruler, pencil, crayons or colored pencils, scissors, glue.

Cooking Club- We will discuss nutrition, kitchen safety, and conduct a recipe swap. Students will research recipes and make 1 item to share (This can be done anytime Tuesday or Wednesday at home, and the student can take a picture to share on Thursday if they would like.) Thursday is show and tell as Ms. Devereaux demonstrates a simple recipe that is easily replicated. This will be voted on by the members on Tuesday. They can do it at home with me or just watch. Week 1- Breakfast Basics. Week 2- Fun lunches Week 3- Simple Supper. Week 4 - Doolittle Desserts.

Thank you for participating in the student clubs. We are so excited about an opportunity to provide learning experiences that are fun and educational. You have worked very hard this year. It is time to have some fun!

Just a friendly reminder, TVVA students should take advantage of Exact Path for personalized learning instruction in K-12 reading, math, and language arts. This program is a supplement to TVVA courses and allows our district to further support your student in aligning courses and instructional supports. This week, TVSD students completed the Exact Path Winter Diagnostic (a short adaptive test in math and reading) to align their new learning in this program better. We have seen significant increases in students' understanding of reading and mathematics from the Fall to Winter. If you have not had your child (ren) complete the Winter Exact Path Diagnostic, please have them follow the directions in this email to provide them supplemental instruction personal to their current learning path.

Here are getting started guides for you and your student(s) on TVVA’s webpage. Please feel free to reach out with any questions concerning Exact Path through email at evanguilder@tvsd.org. We look forward to assisting you with this opportunity.

If you have concerns about your student’s progress, please do not hesitate to reach out to the TVVA teacher or the building guidance counselor.
