March News

Ms. Walbeck's Homeroom

Spring is around the corner...

At least we hope, right? Be sure to check out the Community Tab on Blackboard and check out the Outings Listings. There are a lot of exciting activities planned across the state to get out and enjoy the Springtime air and meet new friends.


If you have an idea for an outing or want to share something you do, contact your FSC to see if others from PA Virtual can be a part of it.

Mid-Terms & March Schedule

Mid-Terms are planned for the Week of March 17-21. Check your grade books. Contact your teachers to make sure you are up to date on your class assignments and prepare for mid-term exams and grades.


Learning coaches will be able to view mid-term grades in Sapphire by the following week.


Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled for Thursday, March 27 from 4 pm - 7 pm and on Friday, March 28 from 8 am - 12 pm. We hope all learning coaches can visit teachers at this time. P-T Conferences are a great way to connect and discuss the successes and struggles of all PA Virtual students.


Quarter 4 classes will start on Monday, March 31. Check your Sapphire schedule and see if you have any classes marked for Q4. You will start those on the 31st.
