The Scholastic Book Fair is back! We are so excited to have an in person fair from Monday, October 5th - Thursday, October 14. There will be tons of great books to choose from, and the ability to pre-order the next Diary of a Wimpy Kid Big Shot for only $9.99.
· The fair will be open in person for all students during regular school hours and for parents during Parent/Teacher conferences on Thursday, October 14 from 3:30pm-7:20pm, or shop at your convenience at the Online Scholastic Fair featuring 5,000+ products anytime between Monday, October 5 and Monday, October 18th. Online orders over $25.00 (books only) will ship free.
Not sure how much money your child needs to shop the fair during the day? No worries! Sign up for an E-Wallet. No more lost money or not enough money to make a purchase. It's a virtual wallet! Deposit a predetermined amount of money in the E-Wallet and any funds not used will be credited back to you!
All proceeds from the fair benefit the Pleasant Valley Junior High Library. We accept the following payments: Cash, Credit Cards, Checks (payable to the school) and the amazing Student E-Wallet.
FROM THE PTA:

ATHLETICS & ACTIVITIES
Season 2 Sports Sign Up: Winter Sport Registration is underway! Join Girls Basketball, Wrestling or Cheerleading! You need to sign up with Family ID. Click here for instructions. You also need to provide an updated physical every year. We will no longer be collecting paper physicals; you must upload them to Family ID.
Swimmers: If you are planning to swim and are interested in ordering a personalized PV swim cap, please click here for more information. Swim caps will no longer be provided to the JH swimmers, and the personalized ordered caps will be the same caps the HS boys and HS girls teams also use, so these caps can be used multiple years. PV caps are NOT required to order, just an option to boost team spirit!
Donate Blankets: PV is partnering with Bettendorf Rotary to provide an “Acre of Warmth” to local people in need. New or gently used blankets in any size can be donated now through October 31st. Drop boxes are available outside the main office at both PVJH and PVHS. Blankets will be donated to local homeless shelters and other agencies that provide assistance to QC families. Thank you for helping keep our fellow Quad Citizens warm this winter! Questions? Contact Joe Campion at 563-343-7861.
