High Lites May 4

posted May 4, 2018, 9:04 AM by Cynthia Moss

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. 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.”

The hours will be from 10:30 p.m. to 3 a.m., but if staying up late is not your thing, we need help with set-up as well. Please click here to sign up for a volunteer spot: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f044eacaa2cab9-pvpost3

Donations for food and funds are also appreciated. Here are two links below:

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).

The library will be CLOSED for AP Tests on the following days:
  • Monday 5/7  7:30 through Period 6.

  • Tuesday 5/8  7:30 through Period 6.

  • Friday 5/11  7:30 through Period 6.

Please make arrangements for your student to be at the exam on time. Testing will not be held up as there are students who need to get to afternoon AP exams.

  • Students taking an AP Exam are permitted to leave school after a 7:30 am Exam is over and students taking am 11:30 am AP exam are permitted to come to school late as long as they have a parent note stating you are aware your son or daughter is doing so because of the AP Exam administration. ALL AP notes will be collected at the exam location. Students do not need to drop off notes or sign in at the office.

  • Cell phones, smart watches, iPads, and other electronic devices are not permitted in the AP testing room. Please remind your student to leave them at home or be prepared to turn them in for storage during the exam at the front of the room.

Senior parents should read the attached  Commencement Packet .If you have questions please contact me, Cyndi Moss cmoss@pvsd.org,  or Mrs. Venezia nvenezia@pvsd.org.   I can’t believe how quickly it will be here:)

Please remind your senior that they must complete the Senior Survey in Naviance.  It is due today.

Let us know what scholarship(s) your son or daughter will be accepting for next year by filling out the form online no later than May 26th.    Class of 18 Scholarships.  This information will be added to our Commencement Program.  Don’t be left out, fill out the form today!

Invitations will be sent out next week to  Seniors who are receiving an award at Senior Awards May 22nd.  Please RSVP to Mrs. Venezia after you receive your invitation. You can also contact her with any questions.  


Students scheduled to take Keystone Exams this Spring (all students in grade 10 English, Biology and Algebra 1 and some who have not yet demonstrated proficiency yet on the exams)  will receive passes in Homeroom on Wednesday, May 9th. If you have questions about Keystones, please contact Mr. Berk sberk@pvsd.org.  Keystone exams currently serve a dual purpose, one as the required standardized test by our Federal Government, but more importantly, a graduation requirement for the state.  Beginning with the class of 2020, all students must demonstrate proficiency on the Keystone Exams (or their associated Project Based Assessment) in order to graduate.
