High Lites Oct 20

Good afternoon,

Today ends spirit week here in the Valley and what a week it has been.  Each day the students were dressed up based on the theme of the day.  Overall, approximately 2/3 of our students and staff participated each day.  Spirit week culminates in our pep-rally this afternoon, the homecoming football game this evening and then the homecoming dance Saturday night.   The dance tickets will be sold today in lunches and between 2:30-3:30 in the main office lobby today.  Tickets are $10 and will not be sold at the door.  Students need to bring their student ID to get into the dance.

There will be a half day (11:30 AM dismissal) for all students on Oct 24th.  Student who attend AM and Full time tech will attend as they normally do. We will not be sending the PM students to tech.  PM tech students may sign out in the office after period 7 if they have transportation home.


11:30 Early Dismissal, no lunch served- no pm tech

















Picture re-takes are October 25th.  Students who did not previously have their picture taken can pick up a picture form in the main office. Those who want retakes must return their picture packet when they go to the photographers in the auditorium that day.

Please join us for Perkiomen Valley High School’s annual Career and Volunteer Fair on Wednesday, November 15th.  The annual Career Fair helps our students explore a variety of career options while giving them a realistic picture of the job market and dispelling some career myths.  This highly interactive, trade-show type of event allows students the opportunity to discuss with you topics like career paths, secondary education, growth in your fields and so much more.  The Volunteer Fair (same time and day) offers our students an opportunity to connect with our community leaders, learn about your mission and find meaningful ways to get involved.  We are always searching for a wide variety of representatives.  To participate, please register using the Career/Volunteer Fair Registration Link or contact Patti Colucci (pcolucci@pvsd.org) if you need additional information.
You can still go into HAC to update your information in HAC.  If you go into HAC and then registration, you will see an update registration tab. Once you click on that, click the “new” hyperlink.  Please attend to this as soon as possible as it is imperative that we have up-to-date information in our system.  Thank you
See the information sent from the district to you in September:
We ask that you take a few moments to update your contact information through the registration verification process using Home Access Center. This will ensure that we are able to reach you with important information about delays, early dismissals and/or school cancellations due to inclement weather.
Registration verification involves confirming information that the district has on file regarding your child(ren) and parent/guardian and emergency contact information. If you have forgotten your HAC log-in information, you may use the "Forgot My User Name or Password" feature on the log-in screen to reset your password. As a reminder, only one parent/guardian (labeled as Guardian 1 in our school database) can change registration information, and parents of multiple children must complete a registration verification form for each child. Address information cannot be changed online - proof of residency must be shared with your school in order for address information to be adjusted in our database. 
In addition, we wanted to let you know that students at the secondary level will be asked to sign an Acceptable Use Policy user acknowledgment form in school. This form will ask them to acknowledge that they are familiar with Policy 815 (Acceptable Use of Computers, Network, Internet, Electronic Communications and Information Systems) and the consequences outlined in student handbooks if Policy 815 is violated. Parents of secondary students will be asked to acknowledge that they understand this in one section of the online registration verification form.
We feel it is important to have students complete this form as we continue to use Web 2.0 tools, the Google portal, and eventually transition to student Gmail accounts.
You may also notice one additional checkbox on the form this year, where we will ask you to indicate if your student has a parent/guardian who is an active member of the military. We thank you in advance for responding to this question. 
Please update your information in HAC asap if you have not already done so.
All students taking an AP CLASS at PV are expected to take the AP Test.  Payment for the tests is now due.  AP Tests can be paid for on-line at the High School Website https://sites.google.com/a/pvsd.org/perkiomen-valley-high-school/home/news/onlineregistrationforaptestsnowopenThose students requiring a payment plan (or if you have any questions regarding payment) should see Mr. Stipa in the Main Office. 

We have an after school bus available on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4PM for students who stay after for academic help.  Students must get a bus pass from the teacher they stay after with in order to get on the bus. The bus leaves from the top of the student parking lot.

And from the handbook:

Activity Fee

In order for PVSD to continue to offer high quality athletic and extracurricular activities, the school district has established an activity fee for students in grades 7-12 who participate in a school activity. The activity fee is $100 per student with a maximum of $300 per household. Payment of the fee provides a student the opportunity to participate in an unlimited number of activities and athletic programs during the academic school year.  This annual fee serves to support the existence and maintenance of all PVSD activities. 

The activity fee is nonrefundable once participation in an activity has started.  In addition, the activity fee is non-refundable or prorated if a student becomes injured or ineligible during the season, removed from a team for academic or disciplinary reasons, if a contest is cancelled and cannot be rescheduled, or if full allotment of games cannot be scheduled.  

A list of extracurricular and athletic activities for which the fee is expected and directions for how to make the payment can be accessed on the PVSD website under the “Parents” tab then select “Activity Fee Information.”


The Perkiomen Valley School District uses an electronic system, Tip Line, to facilitate information gathering about our students.  This system allows students and parents to submit school safety concerns anonymously online.  These messages are sent directly to high school administrators who respond to the message tip within a specified time frame.  The system is not to be used for emergency purposes. 

Have a wonderful weekend and I hope to see you at the game tonight,

Cyndi Moss

Lead Principal
