Perkiomen Valley School District is proud to partner once again with Be A Part of the Conversation to bring in speaker Dr. Matt Bellace to talk about "Marijuana, the Developing Brain, and Behavior" on Wednesday, Feb. 27, at 6:30 p.m. in the high school library. To register for this free event, please click here: https://mattbellace.eventbrite.com

More young people these days believe “weed is like salad.” This funny, but sadly inaccurate, statement is consistent with data showing that young people have a lower perception of risk when it comes to regular marijuana use (Monitoring the Future Survey, 2016). This perception is only strengthened by the legalization of marijuana in several states, the proliferation of marijuana as “medicine,” and the promotion of marijuana through pop culture. Given this situation, what chance does any adult have to convince a teenager that, “weed is definitely not salad”? The Feb. 27th program is intended for parents, educators and other adults who care about marijuana's impact on young people. Dr. Bellace, a clinical neuropsychologist and professional youth speaker, will provide insights on how to have an effective conversation with youth on this important topic.

Dr. Bellace will also speak to Perkiomen Valley middle school students the morning of Feb. 27th during in-school assemblies. Please save the date to attend his presentation in the evening so you may further your conversations with your children about marijuana and related issues.

Parents/guardians of current ninth-grade students are invited to attend an information night that has been rescheduled for March 5 at 6:30 p.m. in the high school auditorium.

We invite you to attend Feb. 20 to learn more about this exciting step in our “digital transformation.”

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.
