"When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, you have to speak up.
You have to say something; you have to do something." ~ John Lewis
Dear Upper School families,
I hope you are all doing well as we head into the final week before our February Break. We sent out report cards last week, and we will be announcing High Honor and Honor Roll recipients this Friday. Please be aware that we have a busy week ahead of us.
Spirit Week - February 8-12
Tues- Camo Day
Wed - Character Day
Thurs- Career Day
Fri - Decades Day (Hawks - 1960s, Herons - 1980s, Roadrunners - 1990s, Owls - 2000s)
Two Ways to Support PVS
Box Tops for Education is now online and digital, with an easy to use app. Families can download the Box Tops app and scan their receipt(s) within 14 days of purchase to earn cash (typically 10 cents per Box Top item, although additional incentives are offered). Users don't need to know what products are eligible; when the receipt is scanned, the app will show the box tops earned at that time and credit PVS. When online shopping for groceries, you can still earn box tops for purchased goods by submitting your emailed receipt from certain retailers. If you have questions, our PVS Box Tops for Education Coordinator is Sarah Dunn, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Family Field Trip
Save the date! Thursday, February 18th, from 1:00 to 5:00 pm. The Living Desert is offering a special Family Field Trip! They are opening the facility to PVS families for a special price- $8.00 per child and $12.00 (total) for up to two adults. What a great way to see the new exhibits and have some family time.
