Dear PVMS East Parents,

There are many things that are happening at MS East. Please read our announcements that are posted every day on our school website to keep up with everything. Also, we do not have school for students this Tuesday, November 7th.

Fall Activity Night – On November 10, 2017, students from MS East and MS West will be invited to Home & School’s fall Activity Night hosted by MS West in Zieglerville.  Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.; the event will run until 9:00 p.m.  Important Note – Just like last year, our high school football team is in the play-offs.  When our high school hosts a home play-off game, we move our activity night from Friday evening to Saturday evening.  Mrs. Milligan and I will send an update on Monday about whether or not we will be moving the Activity Night date from the 10th to the 11th.  

The Harlem Wizards return to PV - The Harlem Wizards will return to the PVHS gym for a night of entertainment on Friday, Nov. 17, at 6:30 p.m.  Doors will open at 5:30 p.m.  Tickets are $10 in advance and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Download a ticket order form off the PVSD Foundation website and return it to school no later than Nov. 13.  Please make checks payable to the PVSD Foundation. Tickets will be sent home by Nov. 15.  Tickets sold on the night of the event will be $12. The concession stand will be open selling pretzels, hot dogs, and water. Harlem Wizards merchandise will also be available for sale during the game.  Money raised through this event supports the PVSD Foundation, which provides funding for educational programs that would not otherwise be available through tax dollars or other traditional sources. We look forward to seeing you at the game and watching the Wizards compete against our own PV teachers and staff. It's sure to be a fun evening for all!

American Education Week  –  All of our schools will be welcoming parents to visit on Tuesday, November 14th; Middle School East will welcome parents between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.  Please see the accompanying flyer.

Parent/Teacher Conferences - Parent/teacher conferences will be offered on Monday, November 20th, and Tuesday, November 21st.  Middle school conferences offer parents/guardians the opportunity to meet with their child's instructional team.  Please know that conferences are not mandated, but our staff will be available on these two days to engage in conversations about a child's progress.  Likewise, if a team feels the need to meet with parents, a conference may also be initiated by the team of teachers.  We will be using SignUp Genius to schedule conferences this year, and all of the team links to schedule conferences will be sent Wednesday, November 8th.

Library Dedication: We will be dedicating the newly re-designed library on Monday, November 20th. The library will be open all day for parents and students to visit. There will be a formal dedication ceremony to thank all of our donors and supporters from 6:30 - 7:00PM. All are invited to attend. Come out and celebrate our new space. 

Parent Volunteers: We are looking for parent volunteers to assist with monitoring the cafeteria. If you are interested, please use the sign up genius link below. Mrs. Allison Roberto in the Main Office is our contact person for this volunteer opportunity.



Student Portraits: Students were sent home with their portraits last Wednesday. Photo retakes are on Thursday, November 9th.

Holiday Spirit Wear Sale: Please read the attached flyer if you are interested in purchasing Spirit Wear for the Holidays.
