PV High Lites - October 11, 2019

posted Oct 11, 2019, 11:04 AM by Kristi Lainhart   [ updated Oct 11, 2019, 11:06 AM ]

Please read the High Lites to learn more about what's going on at the High School!  

If your son/daughter feels ill during the school day, he/she must report to the nurse.  If the nurse determines that your student should go home you will receive a call from the school.  Please remind your student that if he/she bypasses the nurse and calls you to go home, that will be an unexcused dismissal/absence.

 



The PSAT will be administered on Wednesday Oct 16th to those students who have previously signed up.  The exam will begin at 7:50am and run until approximately 11:20 that day. Students must bring at least two number 2 pencils and a calculator. (they may not use their phone or chromebook).  We will follow the schedule below.  

  •  AM tech students who are not taking the exam report to Tech as they always do, however they will need to report to the study hall in the cafeteria upon their return to school (we will still be in period 3 at that time.)
  • PM tech students are to report to period 4 lunch. Their 4/5/6 teachers are aware that they will not be in class that day.

The Homecoming Dance is coming!!!  This dance is a semi-formal event. The dance is for eligible PV students and their pre-approved guest (one). The Homecoming Dance will be held here in the High School Competition Gym on Saturday, October 19th from 7-10pm.  Tickets will be on sale next week during lunches and must be purchased in advance.  Student debts MUST be cleared before they will be sold a ticket.  Tickets will be $10 each.  Students must bring their ID to the dance in order to get in and also wear shoes the entire night. I suggest that comfortable shoes either be worn or an extra pair brought with students.  The music boosters will provide an area for students to store their belongings during the dance.

 

On Thursday, November 14th, we will host our annual Future Readiness Event (formerly called Career/Volunteer Fair).  This event is an opportunity for all of our students to actively engage in activities to prepare them for life beyond high school.  Please consider joining us and sharing your experiences. Here is the registration link.  (The deadline to register to offer a workshop is 10/23/19.)  If you need more information, feel free to contact Patti Colucci at pcolucci@pvsd.org.

The Perkiomen Valley School District Hall of Fame was established in 2018 to recognize distinguished alumni, or others, whose outstanding athletic, professional, or civic endeavors have brought honor to Perkiomen Valley School District and serve to inspire future graduates to perform and serve in the same spirit. 

A Selection Committee chose this year's class of inductees based on reviewing numerous nominations and based their decisions off the criteria listed below. In addition to the public recognition during Homecoming, nominees also have a plaque dedicated in their honor and installed permanently in the Hall of Fame located outside the competition gym in Perkiomen Valley High School. To learn more about each inductee, please click here.

We're excited to announce the launch of the new PVSD Alumni Network: alumni.pvsd.org!

  • Learn about events, career opportunities, and important news from the community.
  • Reconnect with your old friends, and share what's new in your lives.
  • Learn about ways in which you can contribute to the future of the district.
How is it different from a social network?
  • This is an exclusive private community with access restricted to only our alumni.

2019-20 Instructional Calendar Approved

posted Jan 16, 2019, 10:53 AM by Jessica Lester   [ updated Jan 16, 2019, 10:54 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.

Power Packs Program Information

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.
