Hello TVMS Parents & Guardians,

The End of Year is coming to a quick end!  Here is an update for End of the Year activities & reminders:

1. 8G Washington DC Trip ---  Still have Questions? Email Mrs. Bollinger at, If you still have medical questions, email .  

  • You & your child should arrive BEFORE 5:30AM on May17th at the rear of TVMS and parents can park for those overnights in the gravel parking lot behind the building. Nowak Tours & other DC information is listed here:

2. Teacher & Staff Appreciation Week = May 8 - 12th.  Special thanks to all of our staff for a great school year and the staff’s investment in our kids to make a memorable & special school year of learning and fun!  We thank our TVMS Honor Society, Leo Club, Student Council, District Office and our TVMS PTO for contributions to recognize our outstanding staff this week!

3. Accelerated Reader: Please encourage your child to continue reading fiction & non-fiction novels to meet their AR goal for the 4Q & this summer!  Students that earned half of their AR Goal at the halfway point of the 4Q earned a donut breakfast during FLEX class on April 26th!  Nothing but yummy!  Great Job AR earners!. 

4. Checking Grades: I ask that parents actively check progressbook with your username & password at to check your child’s progress regularly to encourage /assist as needed and reward them for good work.  

  • 4Q is ending on Tuesday May 23rd.  Please call the office if you need assistance or email .  

  • 4Q will be posted to Parent Access in Progressbook on Friday 5/26.  Paper report cards are no longer sent home by the district.  

  • Please utilize Progressbook to stay engaged on your child’s academic progress.  

  • KEEP IN MIND that 4Q grades determine athletic eligibility for Fall Sports, not yearly grades! 

5.  End of Year Assemblies - 7th and 8th grade students will be honored with their own end of year Awards Assemblies.  Teachers have chosen their annual “Bright Light Award” winner and Floor grade level Teacher Teams have chosen their Top 2 students for: Outstanding Achievement Award, Citizenship Award & Most Improved Award.  All of these aforementioned students will receive a Hot Heads Burritos Buffet Luncheon on May 15th and receive a certificate of the particular Award earned.  Look for these future honorees to be named in an upcoming TVMS e-Blast!  

  • These End of Year Awards student assemblies will take the place of the past 8G Promotion Ceremony, as the school and district are looking to simplify end of year activities.

6.  Acknowledgments:

  • Congrats to all the Spring Sports Season participants!  We have enjoyed watching & giving your best effort this season!  Tournament Time is upon us – Good Luck Spring Athletes in your league tourneys!  Congrats to Girls Track for winning the MVL Meet this past Saturday!
