PV PTA Holiday Bazaar - Dec. 11th 9am- 4pm **THIS SATURDAY**

Pleasant Valley PTA is very excited to bring the Holiday Bazaar back to our school this year! We have all felt the strangeness of the last 2 years, so being able to bring this beloved event back to campus is such a breath of fresh air. The bazaar will be held outdoors to allow for social distancing, so be sure to dress accordingly. Our vendors are ready and willing to adapt to this new normal and we hope that you are too! So wrap up in your coziest scarf, throw on your winter boots and come down to PVP December 11th from 9am - 4pm for some fabulous holiday shopping!

SPIRIT WEEK!

The coming week is Spirit week at PVM. So, look in your closets and find your most spirited outfits. We are excited to spread a little joy around our campus. Please encourage your student to participate. The more the merrier. The themes for each day are listed below. Teachers will let students know which homerooms are red and which are green next week.


Monday-Pajama Day

Tuesday-Twin Day

Wednesday-Wacky Wednesday and Anything but a backpack Day (dress crazy and cart your school things around in anything BUT your backpack!)

Thursday-Throwback (dress as any decade)

Friday-red/green (Your student's homeroom teacher will let them know if they are on team red or team green!)

Media Center - Chromebook loaner change

Library staff have enacted a new chromebook/charger loaner policy. Chromebooks/chargers are intended to be loaned out from the media center to students on a very limited basis. To encourage student responsibility for charging and bringing their Chromebooks to school, loans are being limited. We have a small number of Chromebooks/chargers to loan out during the day when there is great need, but they are not to be continually checked out due to forgetfulness.


Starting in January - students are allowed one loan per month


This will not apply to students who are borrowing a chromebook because theirs is in repair.


Thank you for your support and understanding.
