Mrs. Wallerstedt. 4/30/21

Coming Up . . . . . .

If your child(ren) is/are in 3rd through 5th grades and they will be attending school on Wednesday (5/5) to take the last session (Math Session #3) of the IAR State Assessment, please fill out this survey. It is important for safety reasons that I know which students will be in the building on that day/time.

I am continuing to update the PV Wednesday Schedule through the end of this year. Please click on this link to view the latest version. Your classroom teachers will be sending you more details about the events that I have added to this page. Please contact them if you have questions. Keep in mind that this year everything we do will be done differently than in the past due to the health guidelines we are following, so it is very important that you read all the communication from school and from your child(ren)'s teacher(s). Please do not rely on your past knowledge of how things were done.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank many of our PTA parents who are running clubs and events for our students this Spring. It takes time and effort to plan these activities and I am excited for our panthers to engaged in fun social time with their school peers before summer break so thank you club leaders for helping us end strong!

A Very Special Thank You from Mrs. Augustine

Thank you to everyone that came out Saturday or shopped online for the book fair! We enjoyed seeing everyone come out and loved the excitement the kids had receiving their new books! We were just over $3500 in sales, so we will receive 50% back in scholastic dollars that goes right back into the school for the LRC and classroom libraries!

Also a big Thank You to Elizabeth Rubio for her many years as book fair co-chair! This was her last fair and we are glad we could make it a successful one!
