Halloween Parties will be at the end of the day on Friday, October 29.  We will limit in-class visitors to the two PTA room parents.  However, all families are invited to our outside parade at 2:10pm – weather permitting.  As a reminder, please have your child choose a costume that brings out the best in them.  No weapons or particularly gory costumes.  We can't wait to see your creativity!

Elementary Winter Program Announcement:  We are excited to share our plans for our elementary musicians this winter. We will be delaying our traditional, all-school program to the Spring. We know our K-6 Winter Programs are well-attended, and we are not yet at the point to fill our elementary gymnasiums with families and friends supporting our students.  Look for more information in the Spring regarding an all-school program.

We WILL be holding a 6th Grade Band and 5/6th Grade Chorus Concert at the end of November.  On November 29 at 6:00pm, the Bridgeview 6th Grade Band and 5/6th Chorus will perform. Two individuals per family will be able to attend this concert at our gymnasium. These concerts will also be recorded and posted to PV's youtube page and website. Thank you for understanding these changes and we look forward to November's concert and the Spring's all-school program!
