Shoe Collection: The Bell Museum is still in need of more shoes!!! We will continue to collect shoes until the end of April. So far, we have collected 100 pairs, but we need LOTS more! Shoes of all sizes are accepted. Bring them to the boxes in the third grade hall. The third grade students are partnering with the Bell Museum to raise money to refurbish a Bell helicopter to display outside the museum. We will be collecting shoes during the month of February. There will be boxes in the third grade hall near the gym for shoe collection. Be sure the shoes are clean, tied or rubber-banded together.
Free Admission to TVHS Athletic Events: We will promote the academic program allowing honor students in grades K-8, free admission into any varsity high school athletic contest (excluding tourneys.) Students who have a report card from their most recent grading period, with all A's and B's on the report card, will get into any varsity contest at Tippecanoe Valley High School free with a paying adult admission. The program will consist of 1 free student admission with 1 paying adult admission. The report card needs to be presented at the ticket booth and needs to be from the most recent grading period. We are pleased to offer this reward/incentive for students who work hard in the classroom and hopefully will reach out to future Vikings in the athletic arena.
