Wreath Fundraiser
Your students should be bringing home their Holiday Wreath Fundraiser packets any day. We hope that your family chooses to participate in the fundraiser. You will receive a paper Brochure in your packet, but if you would like an electronic version, send me an email and I will forward the PDF to you. You’ll see in the included letter that we also offer a Hanukkah centerpiece option, so please contact me directly to place those orders. All orders (Traditional, Online and Hanukkah) are due by Friday, October 22nd. Please contact me with any questions about this fundraiser.

Donations In Lieu of Wreaths
Last year, we had a few families that did not want to purchase items from the Wreath Fundraiser but wanted to donate to the PA thru this fundraiser. If you would like to donate (in lieu of participating), please let me know. For the purpose of the individual and class competitions, your student(s) will be given credit for one fundraiser item sold for every $40 that you donate (since that is the average price of the items for sale).

Book Donations
Our Lower School Library is looking for books. If you have gently used books at home that you would like to donate to our Library, please drop them off in the Lower School Admin Building. We’re looking for books that are appropriate for students in Kindergarten thru 5th grade. Contact our Library Coordinator, Jess, with any questions about this (

MS/US Pop-Up Sale
Our Spirit Store Pop-Up Sale for the Middle and Upper School will be Thursday, October 14th. We will have the sale at two different times that day (8:00 – 8:30 AM outside of the Spirit Store and 3:00 – 3:45 PM in front of the Middle School parking lot). We’ll have clothing items sizes Adult XS – Adult XL. We will also have some new items for sale including PVS beanies, men’s polo shirts and our Firebird blend coffee.

Free Dress Bracelets
Reminder that Thursday, October 14th is also our sale day for Free Dress Bracelets. Students can purchase a bracelet for $5 on Thursday and get a bonus Free Dress Day the next day, Friday, October 15th. Bracelets will be sold during drop-off times on Thursday morning.

Amazon Smile
If you shop on Amazon, please consider using Amazon Smile and choosing Palm Valley School as your charity of choice. All you need to do is go to, add PVS as your Current Charity and bookmark the site to use for future orders. A small percentage of the purchases you make thru Amazon Smile come back to Palm Valley. There is no cost to you and you only need to sign up once.

Fall Festival
Planning for the Fall Festival is in full swing. This is a BIG event for our school and we will need many adult volunteers to help sell tickets, supervise the activities, etc. Please consider volunteering for a shift. I will send out more details about the festival as well as links to sign up to volunteer in a few weeks.
