Hello Tri-Valley Community!
So, here it is....the 2019-20 school year is upon us, and we certainly hit the ground running! All of the staff members were ready to welcome back your children with open arms, and it looked to me like we never left for the summer. As I walk through the buildings, I see students in classrooms learning, teachers in classrooms teaching, and staff members working to make this school year the very best possible.
This summer we started work on the recently-approved Capital Project. Our focus was on the athletic field and the elementary school "hill." At the Iatauro Sports Complex, we added a new section of ADA (American w/Disabilities Act) compliant bleachers, featuring a ramp allowing for simple handicap access. Above the new section of bleachers we added a observation deck, which can be used by coaches and officials to view, record and monitor our athletic contests. Additionally, we will be "live streaming" our footabll and soccer games from the field this year and have added cameras to be able to do so. At the elementary school, we've replaced all of the carpet on the "hill", added hand railings for students and our parent visitors and repainted the space using bright, vibrant colors! It feels like a completely new space when you walk into it! Both of these projects were the beginning stpes to our larger capital project, which "kicks off" next summer and includes renovations to classrooms, the secondary school library, the playing surface at the Iatauro Complex, a new fitness facility and weight room in the secondary school, a new main office in the elementary school, new security upgrades and new entrances to both buildings. I am incredibly excited for what these changes will bring to our school and community!
I look forward to seeing you and meeting you at events throughout the year. Remember that we take as much pride in your child's participation as you do, and our sincere hope is that every child will become active in the school both during the school day as well as in some type of extra-curricular activity.
Every one of us is a valuable member of the team here at Tri-Valley, and TOGETHER we can make all students successful!
