Peak View - Virginia Naturally School
Click here for pictures of last year's Peak at the Bay Program. We are currently underway with thirty-one 5th grade students. The final communicating event will be on on Oct. 16 for ALL 5th grade students during the annual Environmental Day. Please join the Peak View students and start recycling or discuss with your child others ways to take care of our environment.
Reflections is a PTA sponsored program focusing on the Arts. Each year there is a theme where you can unleash your inner artist by choreographing a dance, producing a film, writing a poem or story, composing a song, taking a picture or creating a piece of visual art. This year's theme is “Let Your Imagination Fly." Contact Keri Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org for a PTA Reflections Entry Form and return it to the school office by November 6th.
The National PTA Reflections committee sponsors a student-focused THEME SEARCH CONTEST annually to determine a future theme. The winner will be selected in January and will receive $100 and recognized at the National PTA Convention. Email your student’s theme idea to email@example.com by November 1st. Our PTA’s five favorite theme ideas will be sent on to the state PTA.

We want your socks!
Girl Scout Troop 79, made up of 15 Peak View 5th graders, is doing a bronze project for Operation Happy Sock. We need socks to make catnip toys for homeless cats in our local shelters. If you want to help, you can bring socks that are clean, in good condition and put them in the collection box in the office. Isn’t it time to clean out that sock drawer and admit that all those lone and mismatched socks will probably never meet their mate again?? Give ‘em a second life as a Happy Sock!
Thank you on behalf of Troop 79 and homeless cats everywhere!
