Art Show Thursday April 11th, 5 pm - 8pm @ EAST

posted Apr 10, 2019, 9:23 AM by Chris Hughes   [ updated Apr 10, 2019, 11:07 AM ]

The PVMS East Art Show is THIS Thursday, April 11th from 5-8pm. Students whose work was chosen will be listed in the master Google Doc which is divided by grade. Students can also check the 2nd-floor hallway bulletin board where the Art Show advertisement is posted. The names listed there by grade are the artists whose work has been selected for the show. If a name appears more than once then that child has multiple pieces in the show. The list will be updated daily until the evening of April 10th when all the artwork for the show will be finalized.  There will be an opening reception with refreshments starting at 5 pm. Come and support the art of these young Perkiomen Valley artists.

One deserving 8th-grade student who likes art or who plans to pursue art at the high school can apply for a scholarship through Black Sheep Studio in Skippack. The scholarship allows students to explore a week-long art studio experience during the summer, build confidence in their abilities, and maybe help them discover any hidden talents. To apply, fill out the Google Form on Mr. Bernholdt's website. You can access his site with the link on his PVSD Teacher page. The scholarship recipient will be announced on the day of 8th Grade Awards and have one of their artworks framed to add to the East collection of hallway art.

2019-20 Instructional Calendar Approved

posted Jan 16, 2019, 10:51 AM by Jessica Lester   [ updated Jan 16, 2019, 10:51 AM ]

calendar
The Perkiomen Valley School Board approved the 2019-20 instructional calendar at the Jan. 14th business meeting. The calendar features an Aug. 26, 2019, start for school, and a June 11, 2020, end date.

The calendar for next year is very similar to the current calendar, featuring parent-teacher conferences the week of Thanksgiving (meaning a full week off for students), and a winter break spanning Dec. 23 to Jan. 1.

Half-days have been included throughout the calendar year to accommodate in-service opportunities for professional and support staffs. Spring break will begin April 8 (which is an in-service day for graduation projects) and continue through April 13.

Graduation is planned for June 5, 2020. Three snow days have been built into this calendar. If none or only some of the snow days are used, the last day of school could be earlier than June 11.
