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



Perkiomen Valley School District is pleased to offer free Hotspots to families without internet access in the home as a way to support our anywhere/anytime learning. Through a generous donation, we are making hotspots available to families so that all students can take advantage of the anywhere/anytime learning model. 

A hotspot is a handheld device that provides wireless network connection to other devices -- such as a phone, computer, or Chromebook -- so they can access the internet.  

Free hotspots will be given to families based on income and/or need, and availability of devices (limited quantities are available). If your family qualifies for the Free or Reduced Lunch program, you may complete this form and attach your notification letter as proof of need. If you do not qualify for the Free or Reduced Lunch program, please you may complete this form and be sure to fill out the section that requests a brief summary of why you are requesting assistance. All information will remain confidential.



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.
