The PVSD community is invited to the Facilities Committee meetings that have been scheduled for Oct. 22 and 29, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the high school auditorium. While the focus of the discussion will be on South Elementary School’s facility needs, we are inviting the entire community because the options being considered will likely affect our district as a whole. Some proposed options may have an impact on other buildings, while others may have a significant impact on the budget. We invite you to attend and learn more and provide us with your feedback. The same information will be presented each evening.

A message from MIDDLE SCHOOL EAST


Dear PVMS East Parents,

We had a very busy week with a lot of rain. We are hoping for better weather next week.The students have started the process of selecting their own seats in the cafeteria. We are hopeful to have everyone assigned to tables by next week. Adults in the cafeteria are assisting students with this process so that everyone finds a group to sit with.

 

Traffic Concern: Please be cautious and drive slowly when pulling into and leaving the circle that is around the school. With have more students travelling with the addition of high school students with parking permits in the East parking lot. We also continue to have many middle school walkers. Please be observant of our students and only drop off students in designated areas. Thank you for your attention to safety.

 

Mixed Bag Fundraiser:  Greetings from the PVSD Foundation! Our annual Mixed Bag Fundraiser is set to begin Sept. 14. Parents of children in grades K-8 will receive catalogs this week that will show you all of the bags and other items for sale this fall. Can't find the catalog, or don't have a child in elementary school? No problem! Order online at www.mixedbagdesigns.com. In fact, we strongly encourage you to submit your order online this year, since it ensures timely delivery of your items straight to your home. Be sure to enter the Foundation’s fundraiser ID of 57856 (for elementary - K-5 - orders) and 836864 (for middle school/high school - gr. 6-12 - orders) so a portion of your sale goes to the Foundation. Mixed Design Bags make great gifts for the holidays, so why not get some of your shopping done early? This fundraiser will last through Oct. 12. Questions? Email:pvfoundationmixedbags@gmail.com Please read the attachment.

Vaping Fact Night: All parents are encouraged the attend a Vaping Fact Night at PVHS on October 18th at 6:30PM. Please save the date and RSVP at pvsdvaping.eventbrite.com

A message from MIDDLE SCHOOL EAST


Dear PVMS East Parents,

PSSA results were sent home today in an envelope with your child. Students were instructed to not share their results with other students and to deliver them directly to their parents. We also had our monthly fire drill today. Our students were respectful and behaved appropriately during this important drill. I hope to see many of our parents and students at our Activity Night later this evening.

Activity Night: This Friday (9/21) from 7-9PM is Activity Night. The cost is $10 and includes a pretzel and unlimited lemonade and water. Please drop off and pick up your child at the bus loading platform. There will be dancing, snack bar, ping pong, inflatable in the gym, board games, virtual reality and so much more. For 8th graders only, there will be a ‘VIP Patio’ where students can be the DJ if they bring an appropriate song on their cellphone.

First Lego League (FLL) Organizational Meeting – Monday, Sept. 24, 2018, 5:30pm (for returning FLL members and parent advisors) and 6:30pm (for interested students and parents) in the auditorium.

Back-to-School News You Can Use

posted Aug 29, 2018, 5:56 AM by Jessica Lester   [ updated Aug 29, 2018, 6:46 AM ]

books image
As you and your children begin the 2018-19 school year, we wanted to share some information about various items that are new for this year and some reminders for the fall. Please read on for details:

TEXTING: This year, we will begin using the texting feature of our communications system to delivery timely and important information to you. Texts will be sent to any phone number associated with your student in our student information system. The text will come from a “short code” such as 23177, 63079 or 82932. When you receive a message from one of these codes, you may want to create a new contact and name it “PVSD” so you know next time who the sender is. If you do not want to receive texts, there will be instructions following our texts that allow you to opt out. Standard message and data rates will apply.

VOLUNTEER HANDBOOK: We have developed a Volunteer Handbook to assist anyone who would like to volunteer in knowing our expectations. The handbook helps to explain the differences between different types of volunteers and requirements for each. We invite you to review this handbook and other information on our website prior to volunteering.

ACTIVITY FEES: Student activity fees for grades 7-12 can be paid online through Home Access Center (HAC) this year. Once all team and activity/club rosters have been finalized by the coaches and sponsors, fees will be assigned to a student in HAC. Parents will be able to see a “Fees” tab upon logging into HAC. If no tab appears, it means that team/activity rosters are still being finalized. Please be patient as this is a new process and may take some time to fully implement. Continue to check back for updates.

BUSING INFORMATION: Please be sure to check HAC regularly to make sure you have accurate and up-to-date information about your child’s bus stop and number. Information is subject to change as the bus company continues adjusting routes to be the most efficient.

PUBLICITY REFUSAL FORM: This is a friendly reminder to complete a publicity refusal form if you do not want your child’s image used for publicity purposes. Please download the form from our website and send it to school with your child so that we may keep a record.
