Palm Valley School Parent Association Welcomes You to 2016-2017

As a parent or guardian of a Palm Valley student, you are automatically a member of our Parent Association. The purpose of the Parent Association is to strengthen and build our school community, enrich the PVS experience for students and their families, and facilitate open and effective communication between the school and parents. Throughout the school year, the Parent Association takes an active role in the lives of our students, parents and faculty. The Parent Association either plans, hosts, staffs or fundraises for:

●Welcome Back Breakfast

●New Families Reception

●Fall Family Picnic/Art Walk


●Lower School Hot Chocolate Treat

●Middle and Upper School Holiday Luncheon

●Faculty Luncheons during Parent/Teacher Conferences

●Grandparents/Special Friends Day

●Spirit Cafe

●Used Uniforms and Spirit Store

●Scholastic Book Fair

●Annual Gala and Golf Tournament

●Teacher Appreciation Week

●Moments with Mom and Donuts with Dad

The Parent Association also provides guidelines and support for Room Parents from Preschool to seniors. Room Parents assist faculty with classroom activities, parties and field trips.

Monthly meetings are held to discuss current and upcoming PA events with the parent group. These meetings also inform the parent group about student life and activities through appearances from the Head of School and all division Heads as well as College Counseling, Admissions and Development . For parents new to the school, and old hands as well, attendance at monthly meetings is a great way to stay informed about Palm Valley activities and culture.

If you have brought a treat for a class party, bought wrapping paper or a used uniform, you have helped the Parent Association enrich the lives of our students. We thank you and look forward to your continued support and participation in the lives of our Palm Valley students and faculty.

This year we are excited to be partnering with a fun, free, and truly easy fundraiser called Shoparoo! Schools nationwide are already earning hundreds and even thousands every year through Shoparoo and it’s a great opportunity for us to really make a difference this year!

Shoparoo is school fundraising made easy: the free app turns pictures of your everyday shopping receipts into cash donations and sweepstakes entries for our school! Yep, it’s that simple. No more cutting labels, selling door to door, or time­ consuming coordinating. All you have to do is shop as you normally do, snap pictures of your receipts with the app, and voila Just shop, snap, earn!

Get started today:
1. Download the free Shoparoo app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store
2. Select our school from the list and start taking pictures of your receipts ­ shop anywhere, buy anything!
3. You can even select a grade to support and have fun with grade competitions!

There’s no limit to how much money we can raise with Shoparoo ­ the more supporters, the more we will raise for our school. Schools with just 40 supporters are earning an average of $1,000 every year. That’s free, easy money that we could be fundraising too. Check out to learn more about this awesome app!
