Weekly Notes from the Head of Middle School, 4/8

Dear Middle School Families,

We are now in the final quarter of the academic year. There is still time for students to improve their grades before the end of the school year and I strongly encourage you to support your middle school student as much as possible so they can finish the year strong. Please make sure they are attending their google hangouts classes and remind them to email their teachers to request extra help during our Friday office hours (except Friday April 10 after 12 pm), if needed. Teachers are also available Monday - Thursday after classes from 2:30 - 3:00.

Re Enrollment Contracts
Please try to get these in (electronically or by mail, of course) as soon as possible. We are working hard on planning for next year and we need to know how many students are returning so that we can make the appropriate adjustments. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me or Abby Sturgeon at asturgeon@pvs.org.

Please consider a gift today to support PVS students, faculty, and programs that mean so much. With the loss of three Spring fundraising events, your gift will ensure that our school can continue to thrive in this time of challenge.  The Richard Brooke Foundation, who are already major donors at the PVS, generously offered us an opportunity to match any donations received until May 1, 2020 - up to $50,000!!
We recognize this is a difficult time to ask for additional donations, but every dollar counts, every gift makes an impact, and we want to DOUBLE your generosity with this matching grant. Even if that means turning in your contract and deposit, or taking care of the majority of your tuition in May or June.
A big thanks to the Richard Brooke Foundation and those families and community members who have already donated to the school. It is your support in this time of need that will fuel us into a successful next school year. #TogetherWeGive
