Message from Mrs. Cook
Because school is not in session for the next two weeks, we understand that many of our students who see our in house social worker may feel abandoned and alone and have a need to talk to someone, especially with the lack of support and normalcy that they have when at school, in addition to all the other unknowns we are all facing.,
During this time of chaos and fear of the unknown, I am truly concerned about our students.  For this reason I will be available to talk/meet with anyone that feels the need.  If you feel you need to talk about anything that is going on with you, to make you feel better or calmer during this time of unknowing or insecurity.  You may call the school to ask them to contact me.  I can and will come to meet with you at the United Church of God in Ursina, who has graciously made this offer.  You may also Instant Message me, search for my name as Teresa Wilhelm-Cook.,  Through messaging, together we can determine what you need.

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.
