Weekly Notes from the Head of Lower School, 6/6

Dear Lower School Families,

This is my last Weekly Notes of the school year. As I reflect upon all of the events and learning experiences our students have had this year, I feel proud to be part of the PVS family and privileged to work with your children. Seeing the faces and hearing the comments of our students as they harvest their gardens, code and program robots, perform hands-on experiments or finally understand a new concept are a few of the reasons I am in education. Thank you to all our families for your support of the faculty and the school.

Here are just a few items for your information:

The last Specialist Newsletter has been published. Click here for a small glimpse of the happenings for these classes over the previous quarter.

I hope to see everyone tomorrow at our Graduation/Promotion ceremony at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort, Springs Ballroom, Salon C at 6 pm. Please click here for specific times and information.

Friday, June 8th is the last day of school, and there are some very special activities planned. Students should arrive at school in regular uniform. We have an end of the year awards assembly in the gym starting at 8:30 am. Afterward, students will return to their classrooms. There will be lunch served at 11:30 am and students can change into their swimsuits for Water Day! Thank you to our Parent Association for helping to put together this event. This is a full day of school. Students will be dismissed at 3:00 pm. After-Care is available if needed.

We will be sending final report cards and information about next year's classes, along with summer reading lists mid-June. There will also be a mailing in August with specific class assignments, standardized test scores, registration forms and supply lists. If you would like this information sent to an address other than what we have on file, please let the Lower School office know.

Our Administrative offices will be open this summer from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions. Enjoy the summer break, and I will see you on Monday, August 27th!


Mrs. Fisher
