Message from the Parent Association, 5/25

PVS Families –

I can’t believe this school year is coming to an end…we made it!!!  Thank you so much for your support and involvement this year.

Year-End Parties
We are excited to announce that all divisions will be having their own year-end parties next week:

  • Preschool – Water Slide, Water Toys and Snow Cones (Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday)
  • Lower School – Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream (Wednesday)
  • Middle/Upper School – Pizza and Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream (Thursday)

Used Uniforms
We’ve placed used uniform bins in the lobbies of Lower, Middle and Upper School.  Please donate any gently used uniform items that your students have outgrown.  All items will be re-sold in the Spirit Store next school year.

Spirit Store: Summer Hours
We do not have regular Spirit Store hours during the summer.  However, keep an eye out for an email mid-summer announcing our Back to School Spirit Store Sale.  We will have new and used items for sale in time for the new school year.

This year, we had multiple families contribute financially to the Parent Association.  Some donated towards specific events and some donated to our general fund.  Although we try to do fundraisers throughout the year, any donations to the PA are greatly appreciated and incredibly helpful.  Thank you so much to those of you who made a financial contribution this year.

Events: 20-21
Despite all of the restrictions, we were able to have a very busy year.  We held (9) monthly PA meetings via Zoom and hosted the following:

  • Events: Beginning-of-Year Teacher Lunch, Drive In Movie: Incredibles 2, Preschool Fall Fest, Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Social, Virtual Charcuterie Board Class, Drive-In Movie: Aladdin, Teacher Appreciation Week and End-of-Year Parties
  • Fundraisers: Holiday Wreath Sales, Valentine’s Day Bake Sale and St Patrick’s Day Bracelet Sale
  • Gifts: Toys for Tots Donations, PVS Teacher/Staff Holiday Gift Cards, Scholastic Book Fair Books for Teachers, Teacher Appreciation Gifts and Retirement Gifts

PA Board: 21-22
As I mentioned before, we will have open positions to fill on the PA Board next year.   I’ve already had a handful of people reach out to let me know that they are interested in joining our team.  A form/survey will be going out at the beginning of next school year to ask if you’d like to be involved in any capacity, but feel free to contact me directly if you’re interested in serving on the Board of the PA next school year.

PA Board: 20-21
Finally, I want to say a giant Thank You to our current PA Board for their efforts this year.  It was difficult to say the least, but our team worked hard to make our events and fundraisers come to life.  Thank you to our team: Preschool VP – Shelly Avriette, Lower School VP – Kimberley Yang, Middle School VP – Chris Knight, Upper School VP – Paige Brown, Spirit Store Coordinator – Theresa Hall-Snoble, Treasurer – Leslie Scheil, Secretary – Susan Marx, Spirit Café Coordinator – Kathy Laule and Library Coordinator – Cindy Habibipour.

Please feel free to email me anytime during the summer.  Thank you again for a wonderful year!
