We are proud to announce the 2019 inductees to our Hall of Fame, who include:

Lisa (Thompson) Angleson
Dr. Joseph DeSimone
The late Thomas J. Keenan
Charlie Kramer

Inductees will be honored on Oct. 18, 2019, with a private reception and ceremony. Public recognition will take place prior to the start of the Homecoming football game that same evening at 6:45 p.m. 

The Perkiomen Valley School District Hall of Fame was established in 2018 to recognize distinguished alumni, or others, whose outstanding athletic, professional, or civic endeavors have brought honor to Perkiomen Valley School District and serve to inspire future graduates to perform and serve in the same spirit. 

A Selection Committee chose this year's class of inductees based on reviewing numerous nominations and based their decisions off the criteria listed below. In addition to the public recognition during Homecoming, nominees also have a plaque dedicated in their honor and installed permanently in the Hall of Fame located outside the competition gym in Perkiomen Valley High School. To learn more about each inductee, please click here.

We're excited to announce the launch of the new PVSD Alumni Network: alumni.pvsd.org! This alumni portal offers PV graduates a way to stay connected to fellow classmates and the district through an online community that is tailored specifically for alumni interests. If you are a PV grad, or know someone who is, please share news about this platform and its many benefits. See below for more information.

What does the Alumni Portal allow you to do?
  • Connect and network with over 1,000 (and growing) PV alumni. Explore what your peers are up to and find alumni near you.
  • Learn about events, career opportunities, and important news from the community.
  • Reconnect with your old friends, and share what's new in your lives.
  • Learn about ways in which you can contribute to the future of the district.
How is it different from a social network?
  • This is an exclusive private community with access restricted to only our alumni.
  • Provides a safe, secure way to support one another for career connections, mentorship, professional advice etc.
  • The data is secure and no third party can access it.

School Supplies 2019-2020

posted Aug 7, 2019, 10:11 AM by Chris Hughes   [ updated Aug 7, 2019, 10:18 AM ]

Middle School Supply Lists


There are no suggested middle school supply lists at this time for the 2019-20 school year due to the 1:1 initiative being implemented and possible changes to the school backpack policy. Our hope is that the 1:1 initiative (which provides every student with a Chromebook) will reduce the need for many typical supplies as more and more student work is saved online rather than on paper. 

Please feel free to use your judgement in purchasing typical school supply items that your child might need at home or in school, such as pens, pencils, erasers, dry erase markers, earbuds, sticky notes, and calculators. The TI-34 calculator is recommended for 6th and 7th grade; the TI-84 calculator is recommended for 8th grade or for any grade level student engaged in algebra coursework and beyond.

We advise waiting to purchase items such as notebooks and binders until the school year is underway to avoid unnecessary expenses.
