Message from the Parent Association, 11/20

Hello PVS Families –

December PA Meeting
Our next PA meeting is Tuesday, December 1st at 9:00AM.  Please sign up here to receive the Zoom link for that meeting.

Spirit Store
We just received a new shipment of PVS sweatshirts, so stop by soon to get yours.  Spirit Store hours remain the same: Wednesdays from 7:30AM - 8:00AM and Fridays from 2:00PM - 2:30PM.  Email spiritstore@pvs.org with any questions.

Family Drive-In Movie Night
Our PVS Family Drive-In Movie Night was a huge success!  Thank you to everyone who purchased a pass and came out to enjoy a socially-distanced evening together.  Thankfully, the weather cleared up right in time for all of us to get settled in for the show.  Some people brought chairs and sat outside of their cars.  Others turned their SUVs around and sat in the back with the hatch up.  There were even trucks with air mattresses, pillows and blankets.  We got a lot of positive feedback from students and parents!  Again, a special thank you to the Snoble-Hall family who sponsored the venue.  Because of them, the Parent Association was able to keep all of the profits from the 65 passes that were sold.

Preschool Fall Fest
This past Saturday, the Parent Association hosted 20 Preschool families outside on the Preschool E10 playground for a mini Fall Fest.  We did crafts, played games, took fall photos and had breakfast.  It was a small gathering, but everyone seemed to really enjoy it!  The Parent Association is continuing to closely monitor our ever-changing COVID environment.  Please know what we intend to have more division-specific events this school year, but will always put your health and safety first when planning.

Holiday Fundraiser Results
I want to again say thank you to the families who participated in the Holiday Wreath Fundraiser.  Our Palm Valley students sold 516 evergreen items for this fundraiser…what a huge success!  See below for the winners of our competitions.

  • Cash Brasfield sold 47 evergreen items and is the winner of the $50 Gift Certificate to the PVS Spirit Store.
  • The Second Grade class sold a total of 93 items.  Those students will be having an ice cream treat with Dr. Sherman.
  • Preschool Medal Winners – Gold: Liam Mashiah / Silver: Kenleigh Jordan / Bronze: Charlotte Marx
  • Lower School Medal Winners – Gold: Cash Brasfield / Silver: Savannah Sanchez / Bronze: Camden Beach
  • Middle School Medal Winners – Gold: Bianca Torres / Silver: Mateo Lam / Bronze: Dante Vega
  • Upper School Medal Winners – Gold: Christina Lam / Silver: Caroline Scheil / Bronze: Hannah Hall

Once we have a confirmed arrival date for the items that are being shipped to Palm Valley, I will notify you of our pick up dates and times.  Certificates of Participation, Medals and Sales Patches (students who sold over $200 of product) will be handed out at the time that you pick up your order.  Because items that were shipped to the school had to be purchased in specific boxed quantities, we will have 27 extra items available for purchase (13 wreaths, 9 sprays, 3 centerpieces and 2 tabletop trees).  So if you didn’t participate in the fundraiser or did participate but forgot to order something, please consider buying one of these items.  They will be available for purchase on our order pick-up days or you can contact me directly to reserve an item ahead of time.

I hope you and your family have a fun and safe Thanksgiving holiday.  Please reach out with any questions or suggestions.  Thank you!
