Seeking Your First Day Photos

posted by Jessica Lester

first day photos
The first day of school is almost here! We hope you have your cameras ready - we’re going to be asking our parents to submit their “first day” photos to us again this year. We hope to capture the emotion and excitement of the first day back to school by creating a photo gallery on our website and on Facebook. Like we did last year, we've also provided some "first day" signs for those of you who want to pose with them. You can download the sign of your choice from the gallery below. 

When submitting your first-day photos, please send a maximum of two images from your day. Please make sure the images are in JPG format and are no bigger than 2 MB in size and at least 300 DPI in resolution. In sending us your photos, you will agree to allow your child’s image to appear online or be used in PVSD publications. You may send photos to jlester@pvsd.org. We look forward to seeing what you send!

PV Power Packs logo
Perkiomen Valley School District is offering nutritious meals and snacks, free of charge, to high school students in need of food during the weekends. Bags of food will be provided to children on the last school day before every weekend. There is no requirement to provide any financial information.

The bags will include:
  • 1 breakfast item for each day 
  • 1 lunch item for each day 
  • 1 snack item for each day 
  • 1 fruit or vegetable for each day 
If your child would benefit from this program, you are encouraged to enroll him/her by completing this form and returning it to your school counselor at the start of the school year. Once your student is enrolled in the Power Packs Program, he/she will receive a bag of food each week throughout the school year or until you no longer need/wish to participate. Your student will pick up the bag from the school counselor or other identified staff member and place the bag immediately in their backpack or locker as part of a confidential system.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact email PowerPacks@pvsd.org or call 610-489-8506.

Once all team and activity rosters have been finalized, you can pay the associated fees online. Sports teams and music ensembles anticipate having final rosters by the beginning of September. Other activity and club rosters will be finalized as the groups form and prepare to meet. To access the payment portal, choose the “Fees” tab.

There are fees associated with online payment processing: 25 cents for electronic payments, 2.10% for debit card payments, 2.39% for credit card payments, and 2.89% for credit rewards cards.

BUS INFORMATION AVAILABLE IN HAC

Bus information -- such as your child’s stop, arrival times and bus number -- will be available on the “Demographic” tab for all students.
