Eblast from the Head of Middle School, 5/2

Dear Middle School Families,

The time of year where we begin to plan for the end of the school year has arrived. With Covid-19 restrictions beginning to relax, we are excited to be able to participate in some of our past festivities. Along with our appreciation breakfast, this month there will be a Drama showcase for the parents of drama students and we are also planning an 8th grade promotion ceremony that I am now happy to say can be held inside the gym! While this is all very exciting and I know we are all looking forward to these activities, I assure you we will still be following appropriate measures for group gatherings with the safety of everyone being our utmost priority.

Teacher Appreciation Week 
Teacher Appreciation Week is May 3 - May 7. Hopefully, you got the email the Parent Association sent last Wednesday. They specifically need help with the Appreciation Station on Wednesday, May 5th. The P.A. will set up the Middle School station from 7:30 - 8:30 at the student drop-off area. All cards are due back the morning of Thursday, May 6th. (Students can turn them in to the front desk of the middle school.) If you have any questions, please contact the Parent Association via email: pa@pvs.org.

Flapjacks for Families
We want to celebrate our families by providing a free pancake breakfast on Monday, May 17th from 7:30am-9:15am. All PVS families are invited to join us in front of our MS/Admissions Building for a breakfast made by the Administrative Team. We are looking forward to holding this event on our campus and creating more memories with our community.

Middle School Drama Showcase
This year Palm Valley School is hosting a Showcase for Middle School Drama Students. The showcase will be taking place in the Gym Friday May 21st at 6pm. It will feature performances from all Middle School Drama Students with classical and contemporary monologues and a few scenes they have been working on in class this semester. This showcase is for immediate family members only. Each student will receive one free ticket. After that, tickets are $15 each.

Grade 8 Promotion

We will be celebrating the 8th graders in a promotion ceremony Thursday, June 3rd at 5pm in the Gym. Attendance is only for immediate family members. Hopefully you have received an email with details by now. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
