Monday - 12/13 - Team Up against drugs! Students are encouraged to wear some fan gear from their favorite sports team.
Wednesday- 12/15 - Doing drugs is crazy! Wear a crazy mask, and crazy socks. Don’t forget the crazy hair!

Thanks Penguins! Don’t forget those Red Ribbons!

PTA Winter Reading Challenge
Be on the lookout next week for the PTA Winter Reading Challenge flyer that will be coming home with your student(s). Color in a snowflake for every 20 minutes of reading or being read to over the break. Students may turn in flyers to the front office after break to pick a prize from our treasure box! Thank you PV families for keeping our kiddos reading! Have a happy and safe break Penguin Families!
Tips for Finding Lost Library Books
If your child misplaces their school library book, don’t panic! Most items turn up eventually, but we need the family’s help to get the items back. Please follow these steps.
Step 1: Email me and the classroom teacher to let us know that you are looking for the item. My email address is email@example.com.
Step 2: Search in these common hiding places. It may also be helpful to search the Internet for a picture of the book cover so you know what it looks like.
- In the student’s desk, under all of the other stuff
- On the classroom library shelf (look for the library spine labels on our copy)
- In the bookshelves at home (look for the library spine labels on our copy)
- At the public library (If you return a Park Village book to the public library, they don’t inform or return it to us. Please stop by the public library and ask them if they have it.)
- Under the bed or couch
- Between a bed and the wall
- In the student’s closet
- At a friend or relative’s house
- In the car
- In another backpack or bag
- At ESS (ask the ESS staff to search)
If you have searched diligently and the item is not found, parents are responsible for paying the replacement cost. I will email a bill if books items have been overdue for 21 days or more. Please send cash or a check made out to “PVES” for the amount shown. Do not try to replace the book yourself. No money is owed if you find and return the book in good condition. If you find a lost book after paying for it, you child can either keep it, or return it to school. Refunds are given if the book if found during the same school year.
Thank you! – Mrs. Fleming, Park Village Librarian
Lost and Found
Our Lost and Found is currently overflowing with jackets, sweaters, water bottles and cloth masks.
I will try my best to have the cart out every Friday after school until we go on winter break. I'm also going through each item that has a name on it and bringing them to each student.
If you believe that you have an item at Lost and Found but cannot come to claim it, please let me know via email, firstname.lastname@example.org and we can figure something out together.
Any items that are not claimed by Winter Break will be cleared from the rack and donated.
