Weekly Notes from the Head of Middle School, 11/28

Dear Middle School Families,

Welcome Back! It was so nice to have the students back after a long week away. Thank you to all of you who participated in #GivingTuesday yesterday in support of our #FeedtheFire annual fund. Your contribution is greatly appreciated and many of the programs we need would not be possible without that support.

We have only 4 more weeks before our next break with a lot happening before then, including an 8th grade Breakfast Burrito Bash, a Fun Friday event, an Upper School play to watch, a Chamber Singers Winter Night concert program and an ugly sweater parade. After all that excitement, we will definitely be ready for a break!

This coming weekend is the opening of the Upper School play, The Drowsy Chaperone. We hope you’ll join us for another spectacular production. Purchase your tickets now at pvs.org/tickets!
