6th Grade Camp Out is a Success!

Posted October 2nd, 2017

It’s become a tradition in PV:  the 6th Grade Camp Out.  This year, instead of camping in the spring, students camped in the fall.  They enjoyed great weather as they explored the Maquoketa Caves, collected chemical and biological water data for the Iowa Water Program, and studied pond and stream ecosystems at Camp Wyoming by wading through aquatic environments and examining captured organisms.  Owl calling, pellet dissection, geocaching, and a night walk were dded to help students learn more about the lives of various nocturnal animals.  And, of course, students had time for fun, too, like playing human fooseball!

Check out the pictures below and take a look at the video students shot on a drone!

Global Collaboration Day

Posted October 2nd, 2017

Pleasant Valley students joined students from around the world to share their thoughts during this year’s Global Collaboration Day.  Students from 900 different schools all over the globe posted videos on different topics like rainforests, world peace, math, you name it.  Because PV is emphasizing digital citizenship this year, 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students used flipgrid to record and post videos about what they’ve learned and what they’re going to do to become good citizens.  The videos were then shared so others could interact and learn from our students.

GRANDPARENTS/SPECIAL GUESTS DAY, FRIDAY OCTOBER 13: We would like to welcome all of our grandparents and special guests in the afternoon from 1:00 until 2:45.  Because the students eat their lunch in the classroom we will not be able to accommodate any Grandparents/Special Guests at lunch time.  If a student will be going home with Grandparents/Special Guests, we must have a note from the parents.   We look forward to our Special Guests on October 13th.

WINTER PROGRAM, DECEMBER 14:   We are having two performances for our Winter Program at Cody this year.  Due to the amazing number of family and friends who attended last year, we have found it necessary to offer two performance times.  We are able to do this by using the following system to reduce the number of audience members in a given performance and therefore reduce the wait time and increase the seating availability.

Friends and family members of students whose last name begins with letters A – K will attend the morning performance at 9:00 am.
Friends and family members of students whose last name begins with letters L – Z will attend the afternoon performance at 1:00 pm.
