End of Year Message

Posted by Heather Alnes on 6/4/2021

Hello TVA Families,

It is hard to believe that we are already in the last month of school! The end of the school year is approaching quickly and we wanted to get you some information about the last days of school. Much of this information has already been sent, but updates are included in red. 

Kindergarten - 5th Grade

The last day of work on the K12 platform will be June 16. Since this is a few days before the end of the year, we will be adjusting the expected progress to reflect that timeline. Students will receive extension activities to work on  during the days of June 17 & 18. On the final day of school (June 21) we will have a year-end drive-through celebration at Michael T. Simmons Elementary in the afternoon. Elementary students must also return their chromebooks that day, unless they know that they will be returning to TVA in the fall. We will send more information about this event next week. 

8th Grade Celebration

On the final day of school (June 21) we will have a year-end graduation celebration at Michael T. Simmons Elementary in the afternoon. All 8th grade students must also return their chromebooks that day, you will get new Chromebooks as 9th graders. We will send more information about this event next week.

6th - 11th Grade

The last day of work on the K12 platform for IST courses (non-TSD teachers) will be June 10. Since IST courses are ending early, the final exams in these courses will be optional. The last day of work on the K12 platform in all other courses will be June 16. Students will have extension activities and Naviance assignments that they will work on during the days of June 17, 18, and 21. All secondary students can keep their chromebooks for next year as long as they are still enrolled in the Tumwater School District.

Seniors

All Naviance activities are due June 1. These are required for graduation! The last day of work on the K12 platform and the last day of school for Seniors is June 10. Students will be transferred back to their neighborhood school in Skyward sometime in the beginning of June in order to participate in BHHS/THS graduations. However, students must continue to work on the K12 platform until June 10. Chromebooks can be returned to MTS anytime from June 11 - June 21. Failure to return school materials will result in a fine. 

All Students: Returning Materials

One Big question people have been asking;  What materials do I send back?  The simplest way to think about this; Anything that can be reused…  You will send back (a hardcover book, a microscope, a material not used in a science experiment, etc...)  At the end of the courses (after June 21), K12 will send a Prepaid Mailing label.  You could keep the box that materials were sent in, or you could find a box that fits the equipment at the end of the semester or year.

Here is how to know what should be sent back:  On your Learning Coach page go to your Dashboard and 1) Click on the “my info” section.  From here, 2) click on the Student’s name you want to check an order for and then 3) you can select “orders”… From here, you will see shipping lists.

K-5 End of Year Slide Show
We’d like to make a fun K-5 slideshow for the end of our year at TVA.  We NEED pictures of your K-5 students’ TVA experience from this year; we’ll build the slideshow and create a Virtual End of Year assembly to share with Families.  Some examples below of pictures some of you shared earlier in the year.

Please share 1-2 pictures; with student names, by sending to:  tva@tumwater.k12.wa.us

Have a Great Weekend!

TVA Staff.
