Dear Parent /Guardian,



A huge shout out to all who have donated to the power packs and/or the Daily Bread Community Food Pantry.  The PVHS community is always very generous and your donation will help make this holiday season a wonderful one.

 

 

 

The Winter Concert was amazing. If you missed it you can view it on Facebook through the "PVHS Live Stream" page. https://www.facebook.com/PVHSLIVESTREAM 

 

 

 

During the extended homeroom on Tuesday, December 17th, we will be having a former PV student talking about dating violence. Students can sign up to be a part of the live audience in the library by checking their pvsd email. Seating is limited to the first 50 students to sign up. The presentation will be streamed live to the homerooms.

 

 

Students interested in traveling to Europe as part of the Europe Club in the summer of 2021 (open to current sophomores), have until Thursday, December 19th to register through Explorica to receive a $200 discount off of the total price.  Please contact Mr. Petersen, Mr. Hinkle, or Mr. Connolly for more information.

 

 

Key Club will be facilitating a fundraising drive for CHOP (Children's Hospital of Philadelphia) during all lunch periods next week. In a class-wars format, we will be collecting money, no amount too large or too little. Those students and faculty members who donate will have the option of wearing their pajamas to school on Friday, December 20th, the last day of school prior to Winter Break. Please consider donating and helping CHOP better serve their patients' urgent medical needs.

 

Program planning for the 20-21 school year will begin in January. Core subject area teachers will make recommendations for next year’s courses in HAC.  Students and parents will be able to view those, make any changes and pick electives and alternates to courses in February. The program planning guide will be on the website in January.  We are excited to announce the following additions to our catalog for the upcoming year:

Music 101- a survey course which will explore the fundamentals of music theory as well as music history.

Industrial Print Graphics 2- the second of the series of print graphics.

Football 1- concentrating on the intricacies of the sport with a combination of classroom and gym time.

Football 2- concentrating on the history of football, career opportunities within the sport, and officiating. 

These electives join the new electives from last year: App Design Studio, Personal Finance, Social Media in the Business World, Psychology, Modern Middle East and Peer Buddies.  

 

The updated guide will be online in early January - please be sure to read through it. This past year’s guide is online now if you want to see what we currently offer and to find out about the electives that were added for THIS school year.  Program Planning Guide 19-20

 

 


Perkiomen Valley School District is pleased to offer free Hotspots to families without internet access in the home as a way to support our anywhere/anytime learning. Through a generous donation, we are making hotspots available to families so that all students can take advantage of the anywhere/anytime learning model. 

A hotspot is a handheld device that provides wireless network connection to other devices -- such as a phone, computer, or Chromebook -- so they can access the internet.  

Free hotspots will be given to families based on income and/or need, and availability of devices (limited quantities are available). If your family qualifies for the Free or Reduced Lunch program, you may complete this form and attach your notification letter as proof of need. If you do not qualify for the Free or Reduced Lunch program, please you may complete this form and be sure to fill out the section that requests a brief summary of why you are requesting assistance. All information will remain confidential.


 

 

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.



 

 

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.

Dear Parent /Guardian,


It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is almost upon us. Teacher conferences will be held on Monday and Tuesday next week. Our teachers are available in the evening Monday.  Please contact the teacher directly to schedule a conference.

Next week the NMTCC is holding classes on Monday and  Nov 25 and Tuesday Nov 26. Transportation is provided for both AM and PM technical students to attend their session at NMTCC.  Since there is not school at PVHS a bus will pick up our NMTCC students at their respective bus stops.  Please check with your tech bus driver to find out more information.

From our Nurses’ Suite:

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,

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.

Volunteer Procedures

 

The Perkiomen Valley School District is thankful for the support of its many volunteers. All individuals volunteering/chaperoning as program volunteers in any capacity within the Perkiomen Valley School District are required to obtain the following clearances:

We also require program volunteers to submit the following:

  • Volunteer Handbook Acknowledgement Form that states you have read our Volunteer Handbook

  • Tuberculosis Risk Assessment Questionnaire

You may access the handbook (which contains the acknowledgement form and questionnaire) here. 

 

Once you have completed the necessary documents, you should submit all paperwork to the Volunteer Coordinator in your child's building. (The Volunteer Coordinator list is located below.) If you have a child in more than one building, you do not need to repeat this process for every school. Submit your clearances to one building and your information will be included in a district-wide database that all schools can access. YOU SHOULD RETAIN ORIGINALS FOR YOUR FILES. Do not bring clearance forms to the District Office. 

 

All three clearance reports must be renewed every five years. If you are not sure how old your clearances are, please email Karen Zucker at kzucker@pvsd.org for information.

 

INSTRUCTIONS FOR RETURNING VOLUNTEERS/CHAPERONES

 

If your current clearances are more than five years old, you will need to submit a new set of Pennsylvania clearances and the fingerprint report Registration ID number/Act 153 Volunteer Affidavit to your child’s building. Please keep in mind that you will need to re-submit all of your clearances before each five-year period has expired. Examples: If you obtained your clearances in June 2015, you will have to re-submit your clearances again prior June 2020 in order to remain in compliance. 

If you need to check on your clearances or submit materials, please send them to Nancy Venezia  at the High School. If you aren’t sure if your clearances are up to date, she can search the district wide database. Thank you!

 

 

This Spring, PVHS will Present Shrek, The Musical.  Auditions for the PVHS Musical will be held Tuesday, November 19th at  2:30 pm to 6:30 pm and Wednesday November. 20th 2:30pm to 6:30pm, with Call Backs Thursday, November 21st 2:30pm to 6:30 pm. Students who missed the initial meeting can get an audition packet from Mr. Griffie in Room 144.

 

 

All of our students should now have an ID for the 19-20 school year.  All students and staff are expected to wear their IDs each day.  Students who forget their IDs at home are to report to the main office for a temporary ID.  Students will receive a detention upon the third time they have forgotten their ID. Students who are refusing to wear their ID or forget extremely often will be facing further discipline. Thank you for encouraging your student to have their ID. 

 

Future Readiness Event: Are you willing to share with our students about your career or information about how our students can get involved in our community?  Please consider joining us for this event on Thursday, November 14thHere is a link with more information. Below you will find the student schedule for that morning.  Seniors who might have the privilege to come in later in the mornings are strongly encouraged to arrive by 7:50AM for this event.

 

 

 

 

The farmer’s almanac is predicting an interesting winter with several major  snow storms. The district calendar does have 3 snow days built into it. In the event that we have more than 3 snow days, we will add days to the end of the year.  Final exams are the LAST THREE days of the year, regardless of when that is.  Please be cognizant of this when you are planning your get-a-aways in June. We do not offer early exams for students who will be absent for exams nor will we approve educational trips during exams.  Student’s who are not in school for their final exam will need to make up the exam within two weeks of the exam date. 

 

Conference time is right around the corner.  We will have our conferences on Nov 25th and 26th.  There will be evening conferences available on the 25th.  Please directly contact a teacher/counselor if you wish to have a conference. 

 

American Education Week is celebrated Nov. 18-22 and to mark the occasion, Perkiomen Valley School District will be hosting a Parent Visitation Day on Wednesday, Nov. 20. (Please note that this date has been changed from what was promoted in the printed activities calendar you may have received. The printed calendar erroneously noted American Education Week as the week of Nov. 13.)  Parent Visitation Day times for the HS are 9am to 1pm.

Please note that we cannot make accommodations for parents to eat lunch with their student.

Volunteer clearances are not necessary to visit on this day, but you will need to be prepared to show your driver’s license when you sign in at your child’s school. 

Please do not bring younger siblings along for the visit. 

Please be respectful of student privacy issues and refrain from capturing photos/video during your visit.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

 

Today our Key Club sponsored their first of two blood drives this year in the Valley. One of the things that makes PVHS so special is our students desire to volunteer in our community and the empathy they demonstrate. They will be helping out many people by participating today and they are also competing against Spring-Ford in this annual blood drive competition. 

 

The first marking period is quickly coming to an end. The last day of the marking period is Nov 1 and report cards will be available in HAC at noon on Nov 8th. 

 

All of our students should now have an ID for the 19-20 school year.  All students and staff are expected to wear their IDs each day.  If a student forgets their ID at home, a temporary can be issued in the main office.  Lost IDs (and for those who forget it quite often) will be replaced for a $5 fee. Please encourage your student to wear their ID each day as it is part of our safety plan for our school.

 

We will be holding a lockdown/Run Hide Fight drill in the coming weeks. PVTV programming will include information for students and staff prior to the drill.  We will send you more information in November.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

What a fun week it has been!  The school spirit is running at an all-time high.   Even our staff was into it! An amazing job by all students at our pep rally! It was very close, but our juniors pulled out the win this year. 

 

Congratulations to Tyler Clifford and Summer Watts on winning the PAC Championship for Cross Country last week.  Our girls team won the PACs and our boys team came in second. Congrats to everyone!

 

The Homecoming Dance is this Saturday night!!!  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.  Students who have not bought tickets by 2:30pm today will not be admitted into the dance.  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.

 

Conference time is right around the corner.  We will have our conferences on Nov 25th and 26th.  There will be evening conferences available on the 25th.  Please be on the lookout for information from each teacher about these days.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

 

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.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

 

We are proud to announce that 11 of our seniors have met the requirements to enter the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Program. These students qualified based on their PSAT score (taken in their junior year).  The National Merit Scholarship Program recognizes the top 50,000 students in the nation out of the  1.6 MILLION students who took the PSAT exam last fall. Only 16,000 of those students will go on in the competition and will named Semi-Finalists and the other 34,000 students will be named Commended Students. This year at PVHS we have 9 Commended Students and two Semi-Finalists. 

Congratulations to our Commended Students:  Hannah Bao, Riley Berrodin, Andrew Donnelly, John Durrell, Owen Ley, Ryann Pipperno, Glen Rogers, Mitchell Stomel and Kendall Trumbore. 

Congratulations to our two Semi-Finalists: Sam Marks and Matthew Tremba. They will both move on in the competition and have the opportunity to compete for approximately 7,500 National Merit Scholarship awards. 

 

Congratulations to Brianna Reim and Gavin Berk who have been named the Students of the Month for September and October by the Collegeville Rotary. They will be honored October 16th at the Rotary Meeting. Congrats!

 

Class rings can be ordered on Oct 3  in our cafeteria lobby from 5-7 pm or  Oct 4 during all lunches.   

 

The Homecoming Dance is Coming!!!  This dance is open to all eligible PVHS students grades 9-12 and one guest. Guest forms now available in the Main Office.  If your student would like to bring an outside guest to the dance, he/she must hand in a completed guest form to the Main Office before Thursday, October 10th at 9am.  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 the week of the dance and must be purchased in advance.  Tickets will be $10 each. 

 

Students in grades 10-12 with a current cumulative GPA of at least a 4.00  have been invited (via email) to apply to the PVHS National Honor Society.  The completed application is due by Friday October 11th.  NO late applications will be accepted. Students who have already been inducted into NHS will NOT receive an invitation. Further information can be found in the invitation email. 

 

 

Students who are going on the Senior Trip to Disney and their parents are reminded that today is the deadline for the third payment.   Information about trip insurance has been sent via a recent email correspondence. I would highly recommend that you consider the trip insurance.  All of the information is also on the Class of 2020 High School page. Please contact Ms. Behl or Mrs. Martins with any questions. Also, please sign up for text notifications regarding all things Senior Class Trip.  Text the message @4aek3b to the number 81010.  

 

We love our parent volunteers.  All volunteers must have up to date clearances on file with the district.  There are three clearances which must be renewed every five years. If you are not sure how old your clearances are please email Karen Zucker@kzucker@pvsd.org for information.  Please go to our website Volunteers for details. 

 

Our next PM Assembly schedule will take place on Oct 11th. There will be an assembly for all seniors regarding graduation announcements.  Stay tuned for a detailed schedule for all students. 

 

I am pleased to report that many of our students are wearing their school issued IDs during the day.  We are working to get 100% of our students wearing their IDs.  It is imperative that we see an ID for safety reasons. Please reinforce this with your son/daughter.

 

Last spring the state began their own tip line Safe2Say.  This tip line will enable you to send anonymous tips to notify the proper authorities to any number of concerns such as mental health concerns, safety, drugs/alcohol, bullying and more.  

There are several ways to report a concern; you can call 1-844-safe2say, go to the Safe2Say Website or download the app.  Your tip will be forwarded to the appropriate person.  

 

Don't forget, in an emergency, please call 911.

 

And from the handbook:

Student Illnesses

The following procedure must be followed if a student becomes ill at school:

  1. The student must report to the nurse. Under NO circumstances should a student go to the lavatory to deal with his/her illness on his/her own.

  2. If the nurse is not available, the student must report to the main office.

  3. A parent/guardian will be called by the nurse if the nurse determines that the student is too ill to remain in school or has a temperature of 100F or above.

  4. The student must be fever free for 24 hours without the use of medications (i.e. Tylenol or Advil) before returning to school.

  5. Students may not leave until the school is assured that a responsible adult has been notified.

  6. A student must sign out in the main office and may never leave without being signed out by a parent/guardian.

  7. Dismissal from the nurse’s office is an excused absence. An ill student’s dismissal will be considered an unexcused absence if the ill student contacts their parent/guardian on his/her own prior to reporting to the nurse or does not report to the nurse.

  8. Failure to follow this procedure will result in school disciplinary measures.

 

PVSD Dress Code per district policy 221. All high school students must wear district-issued ID at all times during the school day. Perkiomen Valley students are urged to maintain cleanliness, neatness, and generally accepted good taste in their dress and grooming habits. Clothing that interferes with the educational program or affects the health and safety of others is prohibited. 

Footwear must be worn at all times. Students may be required to wear certain types of clothing and/or footwear while participating in physical education classes, technology education, extracurricular activities, or other situations where special attire may be required to ensure the health or safety of the student.

Any clothing that allows the midriff, undergarments/boxer shorts, or private parts to be exposed are not permitted.

Clothing considered unacceptable school attire includes shirts with spaghetti straps, halter tops, mesh and/or transparent clothing, tube tops, crop tops, pajamas, swimsuits/trunks, biker shorts, and shoes with wheels.

Clothing, jewelry, or bandanas that refer to drugs, alcohol, sex, violent behaviors, portray obscenities or other inappropriate language, will not be permitted in school.

Hats and other types of head coverings are not to be worn while school is in session. A student’s face must be visible and cannot be obscured by a hood or other headwear. Head coverings are to be removed upon entering the building. Any and all religious head coverings are exempt from this policy.

Clothing/accessories that pose safety concerns or can cause injury to self or others, for example, spikes, studs, pins, and long chains customarily used to attach a wallet, folder, etc. are prohibited.

Appropriate attire as indicated by the guidelines above is expected when students represent the school at outside activities. Failure to meet the above requirements for student dress will result in disciplinary action.

The $25 registration fee will be added to your HAC account and will be DUE no later than Oct. 11th.  Once added to your account (it is not automatic, please allow some time), the fee can be paid online through HAC or it can be paid in person in the Counseling Center by cash or check made out to PVHS.

Please remind your student that they need to report to the nurse’s suite if they are not feeling well. The nurses will contact parents if a student needs to be sent home. Dismissal from the nurse’s office is an excused absence.  Per the student handbook, the ill student’s dismissal will be considered an unexcused absence if the ill student contacts their parent/guardian on their own prior to reporting to the nurse or does not report to the nurse.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

 

Don’t forget that our website contains a wealth of information. If you don‘t know where to find something, the search feature has been known to be helpful.  PVSD Website   But if you don’t know who to ask or where to find an answer we have put together a helpful guide. Helpful Guide - where to find answers

 

 

For your convenience, in partnership with Frontstream Payments, the high school will accept online payments through the Home Access Center for outstanding fees. Please note in order to be directed to the Frontstream payment portal you will need to disable popup blockers on your web browser. Payments made after 5 pm will post the next business day.

To access the payment portal log into HAC using the parent login and find the Fee Balance on the right hand side of the initial page. You can click on the fee balance to see the fee information and to make an online payment. You must turn off your popup blocker in order to make an online payment.

 

Processing fees are as follows:

 

25 cents per transaction for electronic check payments (requires entering bank routing number and account number)

2.10% for payment with a Debit Card

2.39% for credit card payment

2.89% for payment with a credit rewards card


You can still pay for these items with a check(s) turned in to the main office to Mrs. McCloskey if you prefer. If you have any questions or feel that an error has been made on your student’s account, please contact the main office.

 

Fee portal help:

When you go into the fee section of the registration page to see what fees/payments have been applied to your child’s account you should use the drop down menus to guide you.

The page defaults to “Open Items” - items which have not yet been paid.

If you change the payment status to “view all” you will see all charges and payments.  You can limit the view to only this year or you can change it to specific school year.   “Any Year” will let you see all charges and payments regardless of school year.

Additionally, payments made after 5pm will not post until the next business day.  If you have any questions regarding this feel free to contact me. 



The 3rd payment ($353)  for the Senior Trip to Disney is due Sept 27th. You can log into HAC and you will see all of the remaining payments.   Payments can be made in HAC or by bringing a check made out to PV Class of 2020 to Mrs. McCloskey in the main office.  Senior Class Webpage



Senior dues, which are a one time $25 fee payable to the PV Class of 2020, have been added to the accounts for a students listed in grade 12.  These dues help offset the costs for some senior costs which include but are not limited to: cap and gowns, tassel, diploma cover, diploma etc. This can be paid online in HAC. 


 


The majority of the activity fees for fall sports have been entered into HAC.  The activity fees for clubs, winter and spring sports will be added as the year progresses. I would recommend that you do not pre-pay an activity fee for a sport or activity until you see it in the fee portal. For more information regarding activity fees, please go to our website.  Activity Fee Information



 

Any and all “vape” products are not permitted in school or on a bus, ever.  We need your help reinforcing this. We do not tolerate this behavior and students found to be in possession or participating will receive school discipline. Please see the student handbook on the website for more information. HS Handbook

 

 

Speaking of announcements, you can find the daily announcements on our website PVHS Daily Announcement


 


If you student is absent for the day, please notify the attendance office   HS Attendance Webpage.  Parents will receive a phone call from us if a student is marked absent and we have not received notification from a parent or guardian.  



Educational Trip forms can be found on our website as well.  Request form must be submitted to the Principal five (5) days prior to the student’s departure. Educational Trip Form


Approval for such trips is limited to ten (10) school days per year. Any days above the 10 days of absence will not be approved for an educational trip.


Educational trips will not be approved during Keystone Exams or Final Exams. Please do not schedule trips during these times or at the very end of the school year as the school calendar could be impacted by snow days.  Final exams are the last 3 days of school and we will not let students take their final exams early.


Non-school educational trips are not recommended for students in academic difficulty or with attendance problems and will not be approved. 


It is the responsibility of the student to contact his/her teacher to make arrangements to make up work missed during an educational trip.  


College visits and job shadowing opportunities will be counted as non-absences if student returns with official evidence from the college/job (i.e., stationary/business card from college admissions office or from supervisor if job shadowing, and/or other documentation verifying proof of visit/job shadowing). An educational trip form must be completed for a college visit.



The volunteer run PV Power Packs Program offers free meals and snacks to students in need of food during the weekends. Bags of food will be given to students on the last school day before every weekend. There is no requirement to provide any financial information.  

If you would like to have your student(s) receive Power Packs when school starts, you will need to sign them up in one of the following ways.  They are NOT automatically set to continue receiving a Power Pack even if they received one last year.  

1. Email powerpacks@pvsd.org with the name(s) of the student(s), grade(s) they are entering, school they will be attending, and any allergy or food restrictions.

2. Fill out the form online (1 form for each student):  PV Power Packs

3. Fill out the attached form and send it in with your student at the beginning of school.  This form will also come home in the packet that comes home on the first day of school with your student.
