A Message From The Principal

OCTOBER 2014

Welcome to Putnam Valley High School.  Autumn is a busy time at PVHS.  Here are the highlights for October:

  • Applications for the Science National Honor Society are due Friday, October 3rd.
  • The Junior Class Ring Ceremony will be held Tuesday, October 7th, at 7:00 PM in the PAC.
  • Parents and community members are invited to view the Peers Partnership film, Chasing It, on Wednesday, October 8th, at 7:00 PM in the PAC.  This 43-minute film is a powerful documentary about heroin addiction, and the danger it presents to our youth.  Several county-wide health organizations will be on hand to answer questions and provide information.  I urge you to attend.
  • The PTSA will hold its first meeting Thursday, October 9th, at 7:00 PM in the high school library. The topics include “Being a High School Student:  What you can expect over the next four years.”  There will also be a demonstration of how to navigate My Big Campus, the new management program that students and teachers are using at the high school this year.
  • The Mid-Quarter grades will be available to parents on Thursday, October 9th.  Parents can access their child’s grades and attendance on Power School through a special Parent Portal.  If you have any questions regarding accessing Power School, please contact the guidance office at 526-7847 Ext 1304.
  • There will be an Emergency Evacuation Drill on Friday, October 10th.  Students will be dismissed 15 minutes early (1:35 PM) on this day.
  • School will be closed Monday, October 13th.  (Columbus Day)
  • School Spirit Week will be held Tuesday, October 14th – Friday, October 17th.  Each day will focus on a particular theme.  Tuesday is Character Day, Wednesday is Twin Day and Club Rush, Thursday is Blue & White Day, and Friday is Color War Day.
  • Homecoming is Saturday, October 18th.  There will be several athletic contests on the Turf Field all day and the annual Homecoming Football game will be held at 6:30 PM.
  • The Preliminary Scholastic Achievement Test (PSAT) will be administered on Saturday, October 18th, at 8:00 AM at PVHS.  We encourage all college bound juniors to take this test.  It is also the qualifying examination for the National Merit Scholarship, and provides students with an excellent practice opportunity for the SAT.  Students should register in the guidance office.  The fee for the PSAT is $15.00 and the registration deadline is October 12th.
  • The PVMA Variety Show will be held Friday, October 24th, at 7:00 in the PAC.  Proceeds will be used to support the Putnam Valley Music Program.
  • The Foreign Language Induction Ceremonies (Spanish & French) will be held on Wednesday, October 22nd, at 7:00 PM in the PAC.
  • The PTSA will hold a Fundraiser “Paint Night,” on Wednesday, October 22nd, at 6:30 P in the PVHS Art Room #113.  Bring your creativity and we will do the rest!  Our art teacher, Jen Armbruster will be the instructor.  The cost is $25.00 per person, and participants should bring a smock.  Space is limited so please reserve a spot by contacting the PTSA at JFowlerPTSA@gmail.com
  • Make a Difference Day is Oct 25th with the Make a Difference Club adopting the PV community library for a "2014 Putnam Valley Library Beautification Project.“  Library fundraisers include a Staff (all three buildings) vs. Student Volleyball Game on Wednesday, Oct 29th, and a Fitness Day with Zumba and Yoga on Thursday, November 6th. 

Sincerely,

Vincent S. Burruano, Principal
