Welcome Back to School, Message from the Head of School

"Good Seasons start with Good Beginnings." -Sparky Anderson

Dear Palm Valley Families,

I am thrilled and honored to welcome you back for the 2017-2018 School Year! The Faculty and Staff have been busily preparing for the arrival of our students. Our hallways and playgrounds have been lonely without their giggles and whispers on campus. Personally, I miss the energy and excitement that the students always bring to our school each day and am looking forward to hearing about their summer adventures!

I hope that by now, you have received the summer mailing with all the important information for you to read, fill out, and return. Additionally, I'd like to note that we have a newly upgraded website that can provide you with all the information you need to be successful this school year. It's still in the same place (pvs.org), but I encourage you to take a look and click around at all the new features. It's also optimized for mobile devices now, so there is no need for an app, it's all very accessible and easy to navigate from your cell phone or tablet.

Please plan to join us tomorrow morning, after dropping your students off at their classrooms, for our annual Welcome Back Breakfast in the gymnasium from 8 am - 9 am put on by our amazing Parent Association. Lindsay Kaufmann, PA President, and her crew have done a tremendous job in putting it together. It's a great time to grab a cup of coffee and a bite to eat and catch up with familiar families and meet some of the extraordinary new ones.

I look forward to seeing each and every one of you tomorrow!


Susan Rice
