Good afternoon,



Good luck to the field hockey team this weekend when they play Wilson High School in the state playoff game.   The game is Saturday at 2 pm at Exeter High School at 201 East 37th Street in Reading.  

Report cards are now on Home Access Center for the first marking period.

Perkiomen Valley High School students have been hard at work rehearsing for their upcoming performances of "Little Women," which will take place Nov. 9 and 10 at 7 p.m., and on Nov. 11 at 12 p.m. in the auditorium.


Tickets are general admission and will be sold at the door or during lunches for $10. They can also be purchased for $11 through this link: perkiomen-valley-school-district.ticketleap.com/little-women/


"Little Women" has been captivating audiences for over a century with the classic story of four sisters navigating life, love and grief during the Civil War. As Marmee, their dearest mother explains, each of the girls is as unique as she is wonderful: “Amy, the artist, Jo, the writer, Meg, the poised beauty, and Beth, the thoughtful dear. ”


Gary Pederson’s screenplay brings out the distinct personalities of each character as they challenge the expectations of women in the 1800s and embrace each other in a dangerous world. Set at Christmas time, the play is a celebration of family, friendships, and love.


The cast is led by faculty advisors Linda McAllister, Tricia Fisher, Matthew Lyczak, and Bryan Nawrocki, who assist Stage Manager Lindsey Edens and Production Assistant Jenna DelMonte.


The talented cast is sure to bring new life, humor, and perspective to these familiar characters. Leanna Strohecker tackles the role of fiercely independent Jo March, who questions the opportunities available to women in Civil War America. Samantha Heirgessell is sophisticated Meg March, who falls in love as she worries about her responsibilities to her struggling family. Julia Gerberich plays sweet, selfless Beth, always trying to bring more love into a cruel world through music and empathy, and Kelly McKenzie plays sassy and creative Amy, both precious and precocious. Laurie, the aristocratic Victorian best friend to the March sisters, is hilariously portrayed by John Baranowski.

On November 13th we will be following a PM Assembly Schedule. All four grade levels will have an activity during the PM assembly period. Please note the change of the times.

Old news

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.

SENIOR PARENTS:  It’s not too late to submit a Recognition Ad for your child.  Just visit the High School homepage and click on the PVHS VOYAGER YEARBOOK ORDERING icon at the bottom of the page.  Deadline to submit an ad is December 31, 2018.

CAREER & VOLUNTEER FAIR - Thursday, November 15th

The annual Career & Volunteer Fair is quickly approaching. Here is a link for some information (eg: student schedule).  We do ask that our students come “dressed to impress” - this does NOT mean that they need to go and purchase new outfits.  It does mean that we are asking them to wear something that meets our dress code and is putting their best foot forward (eg: picture day or presentation attire?).  All students will be given grade specific paperwork during the November 13th assembly so they can familiarize themselves with the events prior to the actual Career Day on Thursday, November 15th.  They need to hold onto those schedules for Thursday.

Students who go to NMTCC in the mornings are invited to participate in the PVHS Career Day activities.  They are able to sign up at the Bus Loop on Monday and Tuesday (please encourage them to see Mr. Berk or Mrs. Colucci).

For more information about the Career and Volunteer Fair, contact Patti Colucci at pcolucci@pvsd.org.  Thank you!

Conferences will be held on November 19th and 20th. This year, the high school will be offering opportunities for parents to meet after regular school hours on Monday November 19th.  Should you wish to have a conference with a teacher, please contact that teacher directly.  You can find the email addresses of all staff members on our website (most staff email addresses are the teacher’s first initial and last name @pvsd.org.
