Tippecanoe Valley High School
Public Notification Statement

Tippecanoe Valley High School is striving to provide the best educational opportunities for our students. The Tippecanoe Valley High School website is one tool that we feel is an effective way to keep students, parents, and community members informed of various activities and programs going on here at the high school. We welcome your comments as we continue to refine our website to make it more user friendly. Please take some time to look over the information and let us know how we might better serve you at Tippecanoe Valley High School.

Due to an increase in insurance premium for the 2014-2015 school year, we are posting a new insurance selection form here.  Parents that selected a one year policy last year or are new to the HS this year should download and complete a new form by the start of the school year.  This form must be completed as well as the 1:1 agreement before the ablets will be distributed to your student.  Parents that selected a multi-year policy last year do not need to complete the Insurance Selection form for the current school year.  This form can be downloaded here, or you can log into Infosnap and download the updated form from there.

 Tippecanoe Valley High School and Middle School will be collecting toys to help U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program.  The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a shiny new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to needy youngsters that will motivate them to grow into responsible, productive and patriotic citizens and community leaders. 

The Toys for Tots drop off box will be placed in the main office area, in each building.   I will be in charge of collecting the toys and delivering them to Warsaw.  The toys will be delivered at Martin’s Supermarket or south of the old County Courthouse in downtown Warsaw on December 6, with WNDU Channel 16 morning show present. Please help and support the Toys for Tots Program by dropping off a shiny new toy in order to help put a smile on needy youngster’s face on Christmas morning.

If you have any questions please contact Officer Hart.

The Boys Basketball team is looking for someone to do stats on the computer. You need to attend all home and away games and have a good knowledge of the game of Basketball. If you are interested, please come to athletic office and let either Mr. Burkhart or Miss Gearhart know.

TVHS Ranger Club: Students interested in leadership skills, character building, physical fitness & military service are invited to join the
TVHS Ranger Club.  You will not be signing up for military service; you are not obligated to join anything, in any way.  This is just a chance to explore this career interest and condition both your mind and body.  Look for a callout during SRT in the coming weeks.

2014 yearbooks are in & available for pick up in the front office.

Seniors still wishing to go on the senior trip need to get a deposit to Mr. Smith ASAP.

The Fulton County Public Library in Rochester has put up their annual “Our Heroes” tree, and you can help
decorate it!  Paper stars with pictures of past and present servicemen/women will be hung on the tree to
honor those who have served and/or are serving in any branch of the military.  Pick up a star in the Media Center along with instructions and then return it to Mrs. Border and she will make sure it gets hung on the tree.  After the holidays, the star will be returned to you.

We would like to challenge the students and staff of TVHS to spread kindness to every place in this building.  We would like you to do this by taking a strip of paper from outside Mrs. Engle’s room.  Write a note telling someone what you value or appreciate about them and give it to that person. If you receive a strip of paper please return it to either Mrs.Engle or Mrs.Garbers as they are going to make a chain of kindness to go around our school
