#SpartanNation February 4

Pleasant View SpartanNation

Elementary Conferences: We are excited to share your student's progress with you! Elementary Conferences will be held Thursday, February 24th - Tuesday, March 8th. Teachers have blocked availability over the course of those two weeks to meet with our families.

  • February 24th will serve as the district set night, with conferences being held from 3:30pm - 8:00pm. We would like to invite you to sign up for an onsite conference during that time.
  • If that date is not possible for your family to come to the school, please look at the registration link and choose another time your teacher will be available.  All conferences scheduled through the link will be held in person.
  • Should you need to schedule a virtual conference, please contact your teacher directly. This will allow the teacher time to create a virtual meeting link.
  • You will receive an enews with the registration link when the scheduling window opens on Wednesday, February 9 at 7:00am. It will remain open until noon on Wednesday, February 16.

Kindergarten Registration for 22-23: Online Registration is open for students eligible for kindergarten. The student must be 5 years old on for before September 15, 2022.  Click here for more information and share with families who have students this age!

Transition to 7th Grade:  We would like to invite you and your 6th grader to a meeting on the following dates in the PV Junior High gymnasium to begin assisting with the transition to Pleasant Valley Junior High School.  Due to space restrictions, we are limiting attendance to 2 members per family (2 Adults or  1 Adult and 1 Student).

Wednesday, February 23rd from 5:30-6:15pm for students currently attending Hopewell, Bridgeview, Cody and Forest Grove Elementaries.

Wednesday, February 23rd from 7:00-7:45pm for students currently attending Pleasant View and  Riverdale Heights Elementaries.  

These sessions will be an opportunity to meet the Junior High counseling staff and administration to discuss programs, policies, and procedures at Pleasant Valley Junior High School.  We hope to address all of your questions and concerns through this forum.  Course selection and course information will be provided to all 6th grade students at the elementary conferences.

7TH Grade Electives:  Click here to learn about the PVJH schedule, including electives like orientation, choir, band and orchestra!

Valentine’s Day Parties: A treat from the Spartan Safe Snack List and a fun activity will be provided at the class party. To keep the party safe for all students we ask that you do not attach any food items to valentine cards, even for students to enjoy later. You are welcome to attach items such as pencils or stickers to the valentines.

Spring Concerts:  We wanted to get this exciting news on your calendar!  Pleasant View will be having an all school concert during the day on April 19!  This is taking the place of our Fine Arts nights.  Look for more information in the coming months!

FROM THE PTA:

Save Around Coupon Book:  If you have any Save Around coupon books lying around your house, please turn them in. You are not obligated to buy them, but we do collect the unused books. If you'd like to keep the book, please send $25 back to school (checks to Pleasant View PTA). Thank you!

February (virtual) PTA Meeting: Due to an abbreviated agenda, the February PTA meeting will be held VIRTUALLY on Monday, February 7th at 5:30pm. Please note the time change as well as virtual meeting. Click here to join the meeting at 5:30pm. You can view the February meeting agenda on the PTA website. We hope you'll join us for school information and to hear from Mr. Cotton.

February Staff Appreciation:  Let’s show our teachers and staff how much we love them with soups and treats on February 8th.  If you would like to contribute, please click here.

Valentine's Day Parties: We will be having our classroom Valentine's Day parties on Monday, February 14th at 2:30pm. There will again be two parent volunteers allowed in each classroom. You can check out the Valentine's Day sign up here. Reminder: If Valentine cards are sent in with students please do not send any food/candy items. The snack will be provided by the parent helper. 

February Book Fair: Volunteers are needed to help make the Book Fair a success!  The Fair will be open during in-person parent-teacher conferences on Thursday, February 24 from 1:45-8:00pm.  Students will make their wish lists when they preview the books with their class on February 22-23. Please click this link to volunteer for any times that you can. This semester we will continue to offer an e-wallet option for children to purchase books on their own before the fair. The time allotted for this will be the 1.5 hours before dismissal on Feb 24th (book fair day!). This will allow the student preview days to be truly just a preview! E-wallets are also an awesome way for grandparents and other family/friends to purchase books via the online site.

Staff Appreciation Donations: We are so grateful to all who have contributed to our meals this past fall!  If you are interested in making a monetary donation to the Staff Appreciation fund to help with the spring conference meal, gifts for the teachers and staff, and fun treats and surprises for Teacher Appreciation Week, send money to school with your child in an envelope marked PTA Staff Appreciation or contact Valerie Campbell at vfcpix@gmail.com.
