The last week of school these emails will be sent out every morning.

Spartan Safe Snack List Update: The Pleasant Valley School Community makes student health and wellness a top priority!

In addition to our commitment to snacks that are nut-free, we have adjusted our snack list to better align with the USDA Smart Snack Standards.

Request for Hopewell Harvest Silent Auction Items: No, it’s not fall yet, but plans are already underway for Hopewell Harvest 2018!  The PTA Silent Auction committee is hard at work coming up with basket ideas and seeking out donations from the local community. If you are interested in joining the committee or have an item you would like to donate to next fall’s Harvest, please contact Marie Feehan at feehanmarie@gmail.com. The committee will turn anything you donate into a fabulous basket. Items desired include:

  • Monetary donations
  • Gift cards to local businesses
  • Tickets to local events
  • Items to go into the baskets such as toys, games, etc.
  • Empty baskets or containers that can be used for assembling baskets

Hopewell Harvest is our school’s largest fundraiser of the year and the Silent Auction is an important part of the event. This year, Harvest brought in over $26,000 for programs such as the Visiting Artist/Visiting Author, the Variety Show and the Family Fun Nights. The money was also used to fill teacher grant requests for items such as ukuleles and beat blocks for the music room, class books for 3rd and 6th grades, and craft supplies for Kindergarten.

It’s important we have your support in order to make this event a success. Please Contact Marie Feehan at feehanmarie@gmail.com by May 11th with your donation intents. Remember, there is no Walk-a-Thon this year, so a silent auction donation is a great way to support the Hopewell PTA this spring!
