End of Year 2016


As the school year draws to a close, our pace seems to become more and more hectic. End of the year reports, final assessments, setting up plans for next year...I could go on and on.

The school year, however, is a rather intense experience. Every month I think, "now things will slow down," but that never seems to happen. Summer is a great time for families and teachers alike to relax and get a chance to smell the roses. It's a great time to reflect on how we want to do things differently and to think about a chance to start over in a whole new year.

I hope you get time to enjoy your children, recharge yourself, and take a break from that daily routine.

Have a fabulous summer and come back ready to work hard and make tons of progress next year!

Tri-Valley will be again be offering the Before and After School Care program for children enrolled in the afternoon Pre-K and students in kindergarten through fifth grade. The before school program will operate from 6:30-8:00 am and will include breakfast and the after school program will run from 3:00-5:30 and will include a snack. The cost for the before school program is $10 per day, per child, and the cost for the after school care is $12 per day for one child and $10 per day for additional children. All programming can be reserved for one to five days per week, but must be consistent days throughout the year. An on-line enrollment form is available and a $25 (before school care) or $30 (after school care) non-refundable deposit is required to save a spot for your child(ren). When registering your child, you must agree to the automatic payments. The district will automatically charge your credit card for the full amount of the bill on the 15th of each month. By registering your child for the after school program, you have agreed to the terms in the Before and After School Care Handbook. If your child already is enrolled in the program, you will still need to sign them up again for next year!
