Weekly Notes from the Head of Middle School, 12/12

Dear Middle School Families,

It’s that wonderful time of year again when we look forward to our winter break, spending time with friends and family, eating special foods and participating in activities for pure joy! As this special time approaches, please be vigilant in keeping your student healthy. If your student is sick, please keep them home for the day. Often, a day of rest is what’s needed in nipping a bug in the bud. Should your student stay home sick, please remember to call or email Ms. Sarai Jimenez (sjimenez@pvs.org) so she can excuse the absence.

Fun Friday (TIME CHANGE)
The MS student council will be hosting a Fun Friday Movie Night on Friday, December 14th from 6 pm - 8:30 pm in the MPR. We are asking students to participate in an international potluck, representing their cultural heritage. Students can also participate by bringing drinks or paper goods for the potluck. You must bring an item for the potluck in order to participate in this event. Please bring enough for approximately 10 people. We will be watching the movie Newsies, The Broadway Musical, rated PG.
