PVHS High Lites - December 6, 2019

posted Dec 9, 2019, 5:53 AM by Kristi Lainhart   [ updated Dec 9, 2019, 5:54 AM ]

Please read the following for updates on what is happening at the High School!  

Eligibility for winter sports and winter activities is determined every Friday afternoon. Students who are below a 60% in any class are deemed to be ineligible to participate in athletics and clubs and activities for a week running from Sunday through the following Saturday.  

 

Where to look for HS information?  You can find the daily announcements on our website. The announcements are also emailed to every HS student each day. PVTV broadcasts also many of the daily announcements each morning on PVTV Live. Please encourage your student to use the resources provided to them so that they can keep up with what is going on in the HS.  Club and meeting information, general information, college visits, grade level information can all be accessed at any time.

Thank you all in advance for supporting our winter athletes. The PIAA and the PAC do have a code of conduct which calls for good sportsmanship.  We want our athletes and fans to enjoy the game while keeping proper decorum. 

Here is an excerpt from our handbook:

“All spectators are asked to

▪ Conduct themselves as ladies and gentlemen at all times, showing respect for visiting players and injured athletes, by not booing participants on the playing areas, and by respecting property.

▪ Show respect for the game officials and refrain from booing their decisions or interfering with their control of the contest.

▪  Refrain from vulgarity and indecent gestures which are reflections of immaturity.

▪ Cheer under the organized guidance of the cheerleaders. Cheers to interfere with opponents’ cheering are prohibited. Foot stomping in stands is to be eliminated.

▪ Refrain from using noisemakers and signs in any gymnasium or at indoor contests.

▪ Refrain from littering premises, throwing of confetti or paper, and tossing objects onto the playing areas.

▪ Support musical groups for indoor activities. However, such groups must be organized, school-sponsored, and supervised to play only before games and during half-time.

▪ Follow the Code of Conduct for promoting good sportsmanship, adults and students alike.

Pioneer Athletic Conference schools reserve the right to eject any spectators whose conduct is detrimental to good sportsmanship. Misbehavior at sporting events may lead to prosecution or school disciplinary action.”

Please remind your student about the code of conduct and that they are representing PV when they are attending games and/or wearing PV apparel.


The Voyager Yearbook staff are continuing the tradition of offering parents and extended family the opportunity to submit a Senior Recognition Ad. The ads are a great opportunity to share photos and special messages for your graduating senior. It is truly one of the favorite sections of the book for our seniors. Order yours today HERE by December 31, 2019.


Senior graduation project paperwork was due December 5th.   Please contact Mrs. Patti Colucci (pcolucci@pvsd.org) for additional assistance with completing this graduation requirement.

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH SERVICES

Physical Exam for Grade 11

2019-2020

Dear Parent /Guardian:

PA state law requires a medical examination for all students in the eleventh grade. It is recommended that the exam be performed by your family physician since he/she can best evaluate your child’s health and update immunizations. An exam completed on or after July 1, 2018 (up to one year prior to the student’s entry into eleventh grade) will suffice. Please return the completed form to your child’s school nurse as soon as possible. It is a good idea to make a copy for your records or scan via email.  

While visiting your doctor, please get written permission for any prescription or over-the-counter medication that may be needed during the 2019-2020 school year. Medication permission forms can be found on the school website or contact your school nurse for a copy.    

Please note:  The PA Department of Health immunization recommendations for this age group include a 2nd dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV).  This is also a requirement for entry into 12th grade.  

If you have already submitted the required physical please disregard this notice.  Please contact us with any questions or concerns. Thank you for your cooperation.

Sincerely,

Please submit all requests for educational trips at least five (5) days prior to the trip. The form must be filled out and signed by the parent and contain the signatures of the student’s teachers prior to being turned in to Mrs. Berry, our attendance secretary.  The form can be found on our website under FORMS in the parent tab. Students who are going on college visits must also turn in an educational trip form and if proof of the visit is supplied the trip will not be counted as an absence.

District Begins "Rally for the Valley" Capital Campaign

posted Oct 21, 2019, 6:39 AM by Jessica Lester   [ updated Oct 21, 2019, 6:39 AM ]

rally for the valley
The district is beginning a capital campaign to improve student experiences and level the playing field called "Rally for the Valley." The intent is to raise money to offset costs for proposed athletic field improvement projects, such as the installation of synthetic turf at Thomas J. Keenan Stadium, construction of a synthetic turf multi-purpose field at the site of our current baseball field, and construction of two, multi-purpose synthetic turf fields behind the high school. To learn more about these projects and how you can support the effort, please visit our webpages for more 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.
