Parent Association Update

Hello PV Families –

Lower School Pop-Up
Our Lower School Pop-Up sale will be Friday, October 1st from 7:15 AM – 8:15 AM at the end of the sidewalk outside of Lower School (please do not park in the drop-off lane).  We will have spirit shirts and hoodies in sizes Youth XS – Youth XL.  Along with our standard accessories (masks, water bottles, etc), we will also have new youth hats, youth visors, youth dry-fit tees, adult PVS t-shirts and our Firebird Blend coffee.  Please stop by and check out our new inventory!

October PA Meeting
Our next PA meeting is Tuesday, October 5th at 9:00 AM on Zoom.  I will send out an email with the link for that meeting beforehand.  Thank you to those of you who attended our first PA meeting of the year earlier this month.  We came up with some great ideas for events and fundraisers this year.  The Minutes for the 09/07/21 meeting are available on Palm Valley’s website under “Support PVS” and then “Parent Association.”

Free Dress Bracelets
The Parent Association will be selling Free Dress bracelets for $5 each on Thursday, October 14th (during morning drop-off) at Lower, Middle and Upper School.  Each student who purchases a bracelet will get a bonus Free Dress Day the next day, Friday, October 15th.  Please send your students to school with $5 cash on October 14th if they would like to participate.  If your student buys a bracelet, make sure they remember to wear it that Friday to show that they are eligible to participate in the bonus Free Dress Day.

Wreath Fundraiser
The Parent Association will once again be having our Holiday Wreath Fundraiser this year.  In early October, a packet will be going home with each student.  It will include a letter from me with all of the fundraiser details (please take a few minutes to read it), a brochure with the items we are selling, a price list and an order form envelope.  Last year this fundraiser was a huge success!  The profits that we make from this fundraiser will directly benefit our students and teachers, so we hope that you will participate.  All orders and payments are due back to Palm Valley by Friday, October 22nd

Fall Festival
Save the Date!  Our annual Fall Festival is back and scheduled for the afternoon of Saturday, November 13th on our Lower School campus.  The entire event will be outdoors and COVID safety precautions will be taken.  I will provide more details in the coming weeks, but for now, mark your calendars for an afternoon of fun!

Lower School Library
A message from our Library Coordinator, Jess Bancroft: “Looking for a way to be involved in PVS Lower School with minimal time commitment? We are currently seeking volunteers for the library! We have some need for volunteers to help classes while they visit the library. As little as 1 hour commitment per week! We are fortunate to have such a wonderful space for our children and it is a great opportunity for parents to be involved!  Please contact me at jess.west@hotmail.com if you’d like to volunteer.“

Spirit Store Hours
Until further notice, our regular Spirit Store hours will remain as Thursdays from 7:30 AM – 9:00 AM.  We will have our Middle School/Upper School Pop-Up sale in mid-October.

PA Board
We still have two open positions on this year’s Parent Association Board that we need to fill.  We are looking for a Treasurer and Middle School VP.  If you are interested in either position, please email me at pa@pvs.org for more details.

Thank you for taking the time to read this email.  I hope all of you are having a fantastic start to this school year.  Please reach out with any questions.  Thanks!
