Good Afternoon Tiger Families,

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. THANK YOU for helping make our Book Fair a huge success! It was so nice to see the kids dressed up this week and stoking the fire of their love for reading and books! We continue to work hard each day here at TVES and look forward to another great week! Our 4th and 5th grade classes are working hard for our holiday show at the NPAC! I can't wait to stroll back in time and listen to the JukeBox Jingles!

Hope everyone has a great week and stays well!,

Monday the 15th is the last day to donate to the VFW and get your wristband! Thank you for all your contributions and support!

Our 5th grade class will be collecting donations for a red, white, and blue arm band to support our local VFW Post 1990 and veterans! You may send money to school for donations from Nov. 3 - 15.

Thank you for your incredible support this past week! Let's see how much more we can show our appreciation to our veterans!

Info about VFW:


The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States is a nonprofit veterans service organization comprised of eligible veterans and military service members from the active, guard and reserve forces.

The VFW traces its roots back to 1899 when veterans of the Spanish-American War (1898) and the Philippine Insurrection (1899-1902) founded local organizations to secure rights and benefits for their service.

Many arrived home wounded or sick. There was no medical care or veterans' pension for them, and they were left to care for themselves.

November 15 - 19 is American Education Week. Please take a minute to thank our educators at TVES!

We are very fortunate to have some of the best educators in the business here at TV! I think our school is the BEST school around. Our bus drivers, custodians, cafeteria staff, nurse, office staff, instructional assistants, and teachers are top notch and LOVE our TIGERS!!

To any of our Tiger Family who are educators or retired educators - we say THANK YOU for your service!
