Upper School Activities for the month of October!

Our first all school Pep Rally of the year will take place this Friday, October 13, in the gym at 1:45 pm. Come one and all to support our Fall sports teams and show some Firebird spirit! Middle and Upper School students can wear red on this day to honor the teams.

Our second Outdoor Club hike will take place this Friday, October 13 after school and end with a delicious dinner at Chipotle. If you want to go, permission slips need to be turned in by Wednesday, October 11.

The Middle and Upper School will have a RED OUT day on Friday, October 20, in honor of Palm Valley School being the first team in the Coachella Valley to have both a Boys' and Girls' Upper School Volleyball Team. There will be a match between these two teams at 2:30 pm in the gym and the Middle School students are invited to watch and have ice cream.

It is that time of year again - pack your sleeping bag and pillow and head over to school on Friday night, October 27 at 9:00 pm for our annual overnight SCAREFEST! The next day, October 28 is the PVS Fall Festival. ASB will have a popcorn stand set up. There will be food and games for the whole family!

Last week, the PVS Blog, thebirdonfire.org, published its first guest blogger and Publications Club member--Holden Hartle. See Holden's music-industry piece on artists who "sell out" on thebirdonfire.org. While you're there, subscribe! Get postings directly in your inbox.

Members of the PVS Film Club will once again this year serve as volunteers at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. Sign-ups for this special Community Service opportunity will begin at the next Film Club meeting on Wednesday, October 11 during lunch in Mr. Griffin's Room, US-8.

Looking forward to all the events and fun we will have this year!
