Yesterday our students had an assembly period where our 9th graders met with their Link Leaders, the 10th and 11th graders received a lesson on mental health, along with a mindfulness exercise and our seniors had an assembly about graduation announcements (Student Services presented) and the graduation project.


Seniors who may have missed the assembly can pick up the graduation announcement packet in the main office.  Please be sure to go to sscgradstore.com to view Perk Valley's Official Custom Announcement and place your order online, or return your paper order to the main office by October 24th.To avoid late fees and product restrictions, please be sure to place your order by the deadline.


Here is a link to a video with a quick recap of the senior assembly. Here is a link for the slides for the presentation for the seniors.  This will also be posted on their Class of 2019 page.


Here are links to what our 10th and 11th graders participated in.

More information will be on our website about how to nominate candidates for future classes.


Today was the last day to purchase tickets for the homecoming dance (Oct 13th)  Tickets WILL NOT be sold at the door.  The dance begins at 7pm and ends at 10pm.   This dance is open to PVHS students in good standing (not on debt or privilege suspension lists) and the dance runs from 7pm-10pm in our competition gym.   


This is not a formal dance (no gowns and tuxes), but most students do get dressed up a little.  Just a reminder, that shoes must be worn at all times while at the dance and students must present their school ID to get in. This dance is sponsored by the Music Boosters.


Don’t forget, if you are trying to make a payment on Home Access Center, you MUST turn off your pop-up blocker!


At this point, all students should have an ID card. Students who were absent during the picture days have been given a temporary ID which will expire on Oct 24th, picture makeup day.  Those students must get their picture taken that day in order to get an ID.


Please emphasize with your student the importance of wearing their ID.  This is in an effort to make the HS an even safer place. Students who do not wear their IDs will ultimately face school discipline and risk the loss of privileges including parking and prom. Let’s avoid going down that road, so please encourage your student to wear their ID.


All students are required to have their ID visible at all times (not during PE or when in a shop class where the ID becomes a safety issue). They were given a lanyard, but don’t need to use the one given to them. They can also get a clip if they prefer. All we ask is that the ID is visible to everyone.


Thank you to all who attended the Financial Aid Information Night and FAFSA Completion Night last week.  Some of you asked for a  copy of the presentation

If you have questions about financial aid and the FAFSA please contact your student’s counselor.  

Please join us on Thursday October 18th at 6:30pm for a conversation about Vaping. We’ll be joined by Patrick Dowling, LPC, a licensed clinician who works with adolescents and young adults. We will also be joined by a prevention specialist from Caron Treatment Center. Please see the website for more information about the  Vaping Conversation.

We are seeing more students engaging in this dangerous practice. Be aware that vaping  and/or possession of vaping products are against board policy and students who violate this policy will face school discipline.


We need YOU!  Our annual Career and Volunteer Fair is on Thursday, November 15th (7:30-10:30AM).  The success of this event relies on a wide variety of participants.  Please consider sharing your interests (career or volunteer) with our students.  Here is the registration link.  For more information, contact Patti Colucci at pcolucci@pvsd.org.  Thank you!

Good afternoon,


Thank you for those of you who attended Meet the Teacher Night last night.  I hope you found the evening to be informative. Please feel free to contact the teachers for additional conversations or questions. A huge thank you to those who brought food donations for the power pack program. By the end of the night the bin was overflowing. Thank you for assisting the students in our community.


Congratulations to Katie Litak and Max Lin! They are National Merit Scholarship Semi-Finalists.  They were entered in the competition because of their scores on the PSAT when they were juniors. Every year over 1.6 million juniors take the PSAT exam in October. Approximately 50,000 students are then entered into the competition based on their scores (PA is especially competitive).  Only 16,000 students in the country are named as semi-finalists. They have the opportunity to become two of the 8,000 finalists in the country and win scholarship money. Congratulations to both Katie and Max.


All students have a school issued Gmail account. Students should access their email often to receive information from their classroom teachers, the daily announcements and more. Student logins are their network login@pvsd.org.


PSAT registration will open ONLINE ON THE PVHS WEBSITE STARTING  Monday Sept. 17 at 8:00 am and will close Friday Sept. 28th. at 3 pm.

Registration is $25.00. Checks made payable to PVHS

It is recommended that sophomores and juniors considering college take the test.


You will be able to watch PVTV this year in the luxury of your home. There will be a new format which will be taped.  Because of this, you will be able to view the broadcasts online. More information once they are up and running.


Guest forms for the homecoming dance (Oct 13th) will be available in the main office beginning Monday. This dance is open to PVHS students in good standing (not on debt or privilege suspension lists) and one guest from another HS.  The guest form must be signed by and administrator at their school and returned to us. I am waiting for more information from the music boosters regarding the dance.


The academic help after school bus is now running on Tuesdays and Thursdays for any student who is staying after school for after school help or an academic activity. Students will need to obtain a bus pass from their teacher or advisor. The bus departs from the steps of the student parking lot at 4pm.  


Our clubs are beginning to have their initial meetings of the year.  You can find information about the clubs under the HS web page under activities.  The schedule of club meetings can be found on the morning announcements.


If you have questions about the HS try to enter the term into the search bar of the HS webpage (ie yearbook).  You will find links to our webpages that contain that information.


The student handbook is on the website under the parent tab. The Handbook should be able to answer most of your questions about the high school.  Please take the time to familiarize yourselves with the contents of the handbook.


Additionally, the daily announcements are posted on the website. These are the same announcements that the students hear daily.  Students are emailed a copy of the daily announcements every day on their school gmail account. (their network login @pvsd.org). Please encourage your student to read them.


Please contact the HS if you have any questions about anything in the handbook or in the daily announcements.


If your son/daughter is absent, an absence note must be received within three school days of the absence.  Students may turn in the note to the attendance desk in the gym lobby before 7:50am or the main office after school begins.  All early dismissal notes also follow the same procedures. You can email Mrs. Berry, our attendance secretary at cberry@pvsd.org rather than bringing the note to school.


We currently do not have additional parking passes and have a waiting list for parking spots.  We are working on a solution on which could add a number of additional student spots on campus. Once these become available we will assign spots to those on the waiting list.


All students grades 9-11 should now have received an ID card and a lanyard. These were given to students during the picture days this past week. Seniors will be getting theirs Monday (if they already had their portraits taken) or during the senior portrait make-ups today through Tuesday.

At this time the fees for all fall athletics, AP exams, senior dues, and the senior trip have been entered into our system.  The activity fees for clubs will be entered after initial club interest meetings have occured and club rosters have been developed.  

 

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.


To access the payment portal log into HAC using the parent login and choose the "Fees" tab


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 school 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. Thank you for your patience as we implement this system.


Please remember if you are driving your student to school, the student drop-off/pick-up area is in the faculty parking lot (the one across from the stadium).  Please do not drop off your student on campus or high school drive as this creates unsafe conditions for everyone on campus.  


The class of 2019  Graduation Project paperwork is due before 12/1/2018.  Students can complete those projects this summer and hand in their paperwork before the 12/1/18 deadline (next school year).  More information about Graduation Projects may be found here.


All students have a school issued Gmail account. Students should access their email often to receive information from their classroom teachers, the daily announcements and more. Student logins are their network login@pvsd.org.


An Educational Trip 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

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).

Good afternoon,


You have probably already heard about our Power Packs program, which provides weekend breakfast, lunch, fruit and snacks to those in need in our schools.  This program relies on our community for food donations. Our pantry is critically low and we are in need of individually sized items (cereals, oatmeal, mac and cheese, pasta, chef boyardee, ramen, granola bars, raisins, applesauce, fruit snacks, fruit cups, etc).  All items should be shelf stable.


You can drop off items at any district school or bring donations directly to the HS.  We will have a drop-off area in the rotunda by the library during Meet the Teacher Night next week.


Thank you in advance for your generosity.


Please remember if you are driving your student to school, the student drop-off/pick-up area is in the faculty parking lot (the one across from the stadium).  Please do not drop off your student on campus or high school drive as this creates unsafe conditions for everyone on campus.  


Our annual Meet the Teacher Night is scheduled for Sept 13th at 7pm.  This is an opportunity for you to meet your student’s current teachers and to learn more about each class.  The schedule for the evening is attached to this email. Please obtain a copy of your student’s E day schedule for the evening.  There will be representatives here from the North Montco Technical High School as well as MCCC.


This night is not designed to conference with teachers.  Please contact the teacher(s) directly if you would like a conference.


Our clubs are beginning to have their initial meetings of the year.  You can find information about the clubs under the HS web page under activities.  The schedule of club meetings can be found on the morning announcements. These are the currently scheduled club meetings:

We began our new bell schedule this past week.  This schedule was devised to maximize instructional time while limiting the amount of time students miss classes due to assemblies.  Once a month we will have an assembly schedule in which all students will either have a scheduled assembly, class meeting or another program.  The first one is scheduled for Sept 24th. I will send you the schedule for that day next week. We will continue to follow the schedule below for the majority of the days (any day we do not have an assembly period or two hour delay).

The new student handbook is on the website under the parent tab. The Handbook should be able to answer most of your questions about the high school.  Please take the time to familiarize yourselves with the contents of the handbook.


Additionally, the daily announcements are posted on the website. These are the same announcements that the students hear daily.  Students are emailed a copy of the daily announcements every day on their school gmail account. (their network login @pvsd.org). Please encourage your student to read them.


Please contact the HS if you have any questions about anything in the handbook or in the daily announcements.


If your son/daughter is absent, an absence note must be received within three school days of the absence.  Students may turn in the note to the attendance desk in the gym lobby before 7:50am or the main office after school begins.  All early dismissal notes also follow the same procedures. You can email Mrs. Berry, our attendance secretary at cberry@pvsd.org rather than bringing the note to school.


We currently do not have additional parking passes and have a waiting list for parking spots.  We are working on a solution on which could add a number of additional student spots on campus. Once these become available we will assign spots to those on the waiting list.


Pictures for grades 9-10 will be taken at the HS on Sept 12 and grade 11 on Sept 13 during English classes.  Students who are not scheduled for an English class should speak to their 2nd or 9th period teacher and get their picture taken during one of these two periods during their grade level day.

 

All students in these grades must get their picture taken even if you are not planning on purchasing a picture package. Student IDs will be generated from these pictures.

 

Our seniors do not need to have their picture taken on these days as their ID will be generated from their Senior Portrait.  The final sittings for the Senior portraits are Sept 14, 17 and 18. You must contact Lifetouch at 1-800-687-9327 to schedule an appointment.

High School Final Exams are scheduled for the last full day of school as well as the last three half days.  Please note that if we have to extend the school year due to snow days, the exams will still take place the last four days of school. We do not give early final exams.


Please keep this in mind as you are planning your end of the school year activities and trips.

Good afternoon,

We have had a fun week here in the Valley.  Yesterday the HS hosted the annual PV Special Olympics. It was a beautiful day and our students had a great time.

Don’t forget we don’t have school Monday as it is Memorial Day.  Take some time to remember those who died while serving our country.


At least one parent has contacted me about reinstating the HS Home and School beginning next year. I am hoping that more of you are interested in participating.  Please let me know if you are interested in helping with this endeavor. I am hoping to have a meeting early this summer to further discuss this.


The last day to make ANY changes to next year’s requested courses is June 30th.  After that date the requests are final and students will be expected to remain in those courses for the entire 18-19 school year.  Please sit with your student to discuss their requested courses now and contact your student’s counselor to make any changes. We will only make changes to schedules if there is a mistake.


The bus waiver and parking permit application for the 2018-2019 school year is now available in the main office or online

Parking Information 2018-2019


A bus waiver form must be completed and turned into the main office no later than June 13th if a student is currently assigned to a bus yet wishes to waive the bus seat next year.  In exchange for waiving a seat on the bus next year the district will discount the parking permit rate. This option is not available after June 13th, so if you are interested in waiving the bus seat please fill out the application today and return it to Mrs. George.


The parking application must be completed in its entirety and returned to Mrs. George in the main office. On the application you must indicate whether you have applied for a bus waiver and if you will be paying for the permit with cash or check made out to PVHS or pay by credit card through HAC. If you choose to pay through HAC you cannot submit the payment until we have received your application and a bill has been generated for you in HAC (I expect that to occur within 48 hours of the application being submitted).  We are now able to take check, debit card or credit cards to make payments on HAC. Please see below for more information.


You will also need to supply a copy of the student’s valid driver’s license and current insurance card with the application.  Parking permits will not be assigned and distributed until sometime in August. I will send out the exact times and dates for permit pick up over the summer.


We will accept parking applications until we have sold out of parking spots.  Unfortunately we only have approximately 300 spots for students and last year we were sold out by November.  


And from the nurses’ office:

Pennsylvania State Law requires all students to have a complete health record on file. This includes a medical physical examination for all 11th grade including students attending PYAP, full time NMTCC, full time MCCC, PV Virtual Academy and Cyber School. A phone call and email message has been sent to you if your student does not have one on file.

The Private Physical Examination form is attached for your convenience and can also be located on the district website – Parent Tab – Forms.


Please send the completed physical exam form to school.

Your student will be placed on the debt list until the physical exam form is received.

Please contact Mrs. Morgitan with any questions/concerns at 610-489-1230 or jmorgitan@pvsd.org


Physical Form

 

ATTENTION ALL PARENTS OF 2018/2019 12th GRADE STUDENTS:

The State requires each 12th grade student (including PYAP, NMTCC, PVV, MCCC students) to have 2 (two doses) of Meningitis (MenACWY) vaccine before entering 12th grade.  

A phone call and email message has been sent to you if your current 11th grade student does not have one on file.

Please send an updated vaccination record to our school health office prior to the first day of school - August 27, 2018.

Good afternoon,


This is a friendly reminder from the PV Post Prom Committee that registration forms for students and permission forms for parents are posted on our website: Post Prom.  Students who submit a registration and parent permission form by TODAY  will be entered into a raffle to win prizes. Prizes include Smart TVs, laptops, iPads, Beats headphones, and even a drone! Raffle drawings will be held at the end of the party and students must be present the evening of Post Prom to collect the prize. If you have any questions, please feel free to email pvpostprom@gmail.com.

 

The PV Post Prom event is a week away and volunteers are still needed to make this event a success for our high school students. We hope that you may consider donating some of your time at Perkiomen Valley High School on May 11 or 12 (or in the wee hours of May 13) to provide an evening of fun that keeps both our students and our community safe.

You do not need to be the parent of a high school student to volunteer – in fact, we welcome anyone to join us so that this celebration has continuity into the future.

Teacher appreciation week is next week.  We no longer have a home and school at the high school that does things for staff during teacher appreciation week so the high school staff gets left out:(  


Please feel free to reach out to the educators that have made a difference in the lives of your children to thank them.  I can tell you that it will be appreciated. We often discuss how lucky we are as educators to work with your children and that we have a wonderful community.  (If you are interested in re-starting home and school for next year let me know. We would need parents who are interested in being officers).

Good afternoon,


The PV Post Prom event is less than a month away and volunteers are still needed to make this event a success for our high school students. We hope that you may consider donating some of your time at Perkiomen Valley High School on May 11 or 12 (or in the wee hours of May 13) to provide an evening of fun that keeps both our students and our community safe.

You do not need to be the parent of a high school student to volunteer – in fact, we welcome anyone to join us so that this celebration has continuity into the future. Post Prom is a drug- and alcohol-free event open to juniors and seniors regardless of whether or not they go to prom. It is free for those who attend. This year’s theme is “Vegas Lights.”

Good afternoon,


Today’s event in our courtyard went well.  A number of students attended and students voiced their opinions.  Various viewpoints were represented. PVTV and the Voice attended the discussions to document the discussions.  Our students are amazing and were very respectful of each other’s views. They will be making a video which I hope we can share with all who are interested.



On April 24th our seniors who attend NMTCC will be taking their NOCTI exams.  Therefore there is no tech school that day for our 9th, 10th and 11th grade students.  Students who attend AM tech can either arrive at PV at 10:30 and sign in at the main office or arrive at normal time and attend study hall until their period ⅘ class.  PM tech students will be dismissed at noon. Students will be able to take a bus or drive home. The bus will pick up the students in the bus loop.
