Dear Parent /Guardian,


It is amazing that we are just about half way through the current school year! Soon (not until spring) I will be sending information to senior parents and students about the Senior Walk, Senior Awards, Scholarships won and Commencement.  This is a great time of the year, even with the cold weather and possible snow.



Please join us for our next Be a Part of the Conversation workshop -- "Isolation: The New Drug of Choice". This informative presentation will be held Thursday, Jan. 23, at 6:30 p.m. in the high school library. The effects of social isolation on mental health are overwhelmingly negative. According to adolescent therapists, parents frequently mention they have to beg their teens to get out of the house to see friends, instead of enforce curfews. Justin Levin, M.A., CAADC will talk with parents about how they can encourage young people to stop isolating. Register at pv-isolation.eventbrite.com.


 

Save the date for our upcoming Day of Service on Jan. 20, 2020.  HIgh School students can sign up for various service opportunities now Day of Service High School Opportunities. We are looking forward to working with all our young volunteers to serve others in memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

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

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.

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,

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.

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.
