4th grade readers

Students in Mrs. Bowman and Mrs. Daniels 4th grade classes are challenged to read a book, over 100 pages long, with a partner, to meet the Partner Read Challenge.  Above Aiden and Eirean are reading "How to Eat Fried Worms" by Thomas Rockwell.  Other students are reading "Weird But True", "Diary of an 8 Bit Warrior", and "Scared in School".  Some students are reading ebooks on the Epic App and some are reading traditional books.  When they complete the challenge they log their reading in biblionasium, a website to track reading.

January is School Board Recognition Month

 

A quality public education is a key that can open doors of opportunity for many students. Providing that education takes a team of committed people from educators and staff to parents and administrators. The nine members of your local school board are an important part of this team, making informed decisions that direct the course of our public schools. Every January, we take time to celebrate and recognize the challenging and vital work they do on behalf of our students, families and community. School directors volunteer an average of 10 hours each month to board work, which includes adopting policy, voting on budgets, approving curriculum changes, choosing textbooks and reviewing hiring decisions to name a few. They take time to learn about the issues affecting public education and to seek innovative solutions. As unpaid, locally elected officials, school directors are invested in their communities. They are our neighbors, friends, local leaders, parents and engaged citizens. During this month of recognition, please take a moment and show your gratitude for school directors’ time, dedication and effort year-round. The job they do is necessary to ensure our schools remain a pathway to a promising future. Thank them for advocating on behalf of our collective interest, and most importantly, for making the success of our children their priority.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Turkeyfoot Valley Area School District is to afford each student an opportunity to develop both the ability to acquire broad-based knowledge in reading, writing and mathematics enabling the student to make intelligent, appropriate educational and career decisions; and also to provide each student with the skills necessary to become productive contributors in their community and environment.

Turkeyfoot Valley Area School District Vision
We believe that each child is a unique person with an individual growth pattern of development.  It is our vision in the realm of curriculum and instruction that we must be responsive to individual differences in ability and interest to help students maximize their potential.  To ensure opportunities for success, levels of ability, readiness, and learning styles will be recognized, accepted and integrated as teachers implement district curriculum requirements for all students.  It is our vision that specific areas of emphasis should not only include needed basic skills and the ability to acquire knowledge, but challenge students to achieve at higher levels, applying learned problem solving strategies.
