A Message From The Principal

September 16, 2016

Dear Parents,

Back to School Night is scheduled for Tuesday, September 20th. We will begin promptly at 7:00 p.m. in your student’s homebase. The design of this evening is for you to follow your child’s daily schedule. You will have ten minutes in each period where class instructors will describe for you curriculum and class expectations. You will have three minutes to pass to your next class, so please do not be caught talking to your friends in the hall or you will be late!

Please click here to access a blank form to fill in your child's schedule and to bring with you. You will be following an “A” day schedule. A building map will be available as you enter the building so you may plot your course. It is important to note that the evening is a discussion about curriculum and expectations. It is not the time to discuss your individual concerns about your child. You have the ability to schedule a meeting with teachers whenever you feel a concern, or a need to check-in. There is no specific day set aside for parent / teacher conferences. Please feel free to contact your child’s team leader if you wish to meet with the team. Team Leaders may be contacted by calling 528-8101 and using the following extensions or by emailing:

Grade 5 – Mrs. Sousa, zsousa@pvcsd.org
Grade 6 – Mrs. Stein, jstein@pvcsd.org
Grade 7 – Mrs. Belfont, mbelfont@pvcsd.org
Grade 8 – Ms. Miench, hmiench@pvcsd.org
Encores – Mrs. Trchala, strchala@pvcsd.org

The Back to School Night will showcase each Encore, Physical Education, and Music Education class by meeting in the gymnasium. During your child’s lunch period and encore period, visit the gym to find each teacher’s presentation of classroom expectations, curriculum, and other important information. During your time in the gymnasium, you will have the opportunity to “put a name to the face,” ask questions, and view images showing students in action as well as examples of work done in previous Encore classes.

Please keep in mind that we have 539 students in the building this year so please plan extra time to park and to find your homebase. We need to start at 7:00 to stay on schedule. Members of community organizations will be available in the cafeteria to enlist your membership, as well to share information with you. Please be sure to take advantage of this during your student’s lunch period.

Please remain involved in your child’s education. The middle years are full of changes physically, mentally and emotionally. Your presence is paramount in your child’s overall success. We look forward to seeing you on
September 20th.

Sincerely,

Edward J. Hallisey
Principal
