Dear PVS Families,

As a parent or guardian of a Palm Valley School 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
  • Fall Family Picnic
  • 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. Please refer to the School Calendar for these dates. 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 current hands as well, attendance at monthly meetings is a great way to stay informed about Palm Valley School's 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 School students and faculty.

Sincerely,

Lindsay Kaufmann
