Save the Date for Fifth-Grade Parent Night, June 5

posted by Jessica Lester   [ updated ]

Reminder
Perkiomen Valley Middle School East and West are sponsoring a Fifth-Grade Parent Night in each school’s respective auditorium from 7 to 8 p.m. The purpose of this forum is to provide fifth-grade parents the opportunity to learn about the sixth-grade program at the middle schools. Our schools’ guidance counselors and administrators will be on hand to welcome you to the Perkiomen Valley Middle School community and begin your orientation as a parent of a middle-level learner.

As the parent of a rising sixth-grader, you may also be interested in the Jump Start program, which is a transition camp available to incoming sixth-grade students being held from July 23 - 26 at both middle schools. If you are interested in signing your child up for this program, click here for more information. Please be aware that the program is capped at 30 students per school and we have already received a number of registrations.

While the June 5th meeting is intended for just parents, please reserve August 23, 2018 on your calendar for 6th Grade Orientation Night/Meet The Teacher Night for all incoming sixth-graders, new students, and parents/guardians.

The PV Art and Food Truck Festival is coming up on Saturday, June 2, from 12 to 4 p.m. at Perkiomen Valley High School! Save the date for this fun family event, which features the work of local artists, as well as food trucks from around the area, and games and activities for children.

This year marks the third for this event, which benefits the Perkiomen Valley School District Art Department. Proceeds from last year’s festival helped pay for guest speakers such as Abandoned America author/photographer Matthew Christopher and author/illustrator Kevin McClosky, who spoke at building assemblies at Schwenksville and South Elementary in May of 2017. Festival proceeds have also supported RAKU Clay workshops for middle and high school students, new paper cutters for both middle schools, and six new art show displays for the high school. Future plans will be to use festival funds to provide students with the additional materials, equipment, artist workshops, speaking engagements and field trips to enrich their educational experience.

If you would like to volunteer for this event, please sign up here: https://signup.com/client/invitation2/secure/2321579/false#/invitation
