Science/Maker Fair Participants 2017
A Note From Ms. Margaret Podesta

March 24, 2017

Dear PVES Families,

Thank you so much for your ongoing contributions to our Support the Troops campaign. The Character Education Committee has arranged for a very organized and thoughtful collection for our U.S. troops, and our boxes are filling up! The students present their donations with such pride, and we thank you for your support. Our students will attend a Support the Troops assembly at the end of the month, where they will present our generous donations.

Congratulations to our amazing fourth grade scientists who presented their studies at our wonderful PVES Science/Maker Fair on Monday night! The projects were outstanding, and we thank all of the parents who supported their children’s work in so many meaningful ways. Thank you also to Mr. Jason Horr from PVHS for coordinating our collaboration with the high school Science Honor students. These high school students worked so well with our fourth graders, and they attended the Science/Maker Fair on Monday night. Thank you also to Mrs. Broas and Ms. Mistretta for working with me to coordinate this wonderful event.

As you know, our elementary students will be dismissed at 12:15 on Friday, April 7th, for invite-only parent/teacher conferences. All students will receive a Progress Report at this time, which will give you a brief update on how the child is doing in the classroom. Full Report Cards will be sent out in June. As always, if you have any questions for any of your child’s teachers, please contact them via email or phone, and a conference or meeting will be set up. Thank you for your positive communication, as we work together for the benefit of our students.

Spring break will take place from April 10th through April 17th. Schools will reopen on Tuesday, April 18th.

And don’t forget that Friday, March 31st is “Dress as a Dr. Seuss Character Day” at PVES! The PTA Seuss Spectacular and Special Person Event will be held here at 6:00 that evening. We look forward to this wonderful day, as we continue to celebrate reading in our lives!

As you walk through our school hallways, you will see beautifully decorated classroom doors that help to celebrate our Dr. Seuss theme this month. Thank you to the PTA for sharing this theme with our teachers. The doors are so festive and creative!

We are so proud of how well our students are doing at this time of year. In all grades, students continue to show amazing academic growth, and we are so very proud. Thank you to our wonderful teachers for their efforts each and every day. PV Pride is abundant and deserving in this school!

Enjoy the weekend! Think spring!
Ms. Podesta
