Monday night at a 6th grade boys basketball game between Argos and TVMS, a great act of sportsmanship took place.  At the end of the b-team game, a young man from Argos was able to get on the court and score a basket prior to the game ending buzzer.  Vikings and Dragons worked together to make this moment happen for the young man.  The video was shared on Facebook Monday night and on local TV stations Tuesday night.  Below is the link to the special spot light that aired on Fox 28:

All Vikings and Dragons alike should be very proud of these young men and the coaches who mentor them.

Valley Family, Valley Pride!

TVSC Director of Technology Keith Lang offered the following about Mason Veach:  “Mason Veach is a young man dedicated to the success of our students and staff through the use of technology.  Mason is a graduate of Tippecanoe Valley High School that has repeatedly, in his two years with the school corporation, successfully stepped in to fill a need within the technology department.  Mason has served as the technology associate at the elementary schools and currently serves in the high school, overseeing our 1:1 program as well as any other technology need within the building.  Mason’s desire to learn coupled with his excellent customer service skills are the keys to his success.”


Tippecanoe Valley Middle School Principal Scott Backus shared the following about Kystyna Martin:  “Krys Martin is a very energetic teacher who is passionate about the success of students in her art classes.  She is quickly becoming one of the key staff leaders in our school.  She is a Student Council sponsor and helps run the Social Committee.  The Art Show that she put on for parents that coincided with the Honor Society Banquet was an outstanding display of student art that was all created under her guidance.”

The holidays are a great time to teach children compassion and empathy for others. It is easy for children to be excited to receive gifts, but how do we develop the same enthusiasm for giving? Here are some examples of how you can involve your child in the joy of giving.

  • Let your child shop for a few gifts for others using their own money
  • Do a holiday craft or bake cookies to give to neighbors or friends
  • Let your child wrap a few gifts themselves
  • Have your child make cards for others
  • Give your child the opportunity to present the gift to someone so they can see the joy it brings
  • Volunteer in a local soup kitchen or participate in Toys for Tots
