We're excited to announce the launch of the new PVSD Alumni Network: alumni.pvsd.org! This alumni portal offers PV graduates a way to stay connected to fellow classmates and the district through an online community that is tailored specifically for alumni interests. If you are a PV grad, or know someone who is, please share news about this platform and its many benefits. See below for more information.

What does the Alumni Portal allow you to do?
  • Connect and network with over 1,000 (and growing) PV alumni. Explore what your peers are up to and find alumni near you.
  • Learn about events, career opportunities, and important news from the community.
  • Reconnect with your old friends, and share what's new in your lives.
  • Learn about ways in which you can contribute to the future of the district.
How is it different from a social network?
  • This is an exclusive private community with access restricted to only our alumni.
  • Provides a safe, secure way to support one another for career connections, mentorship, professional advice etc.
  • The data is secure and no third party can access it.

calendar
The Perkiomen Valley School Board approved the 2019-20 instructional calendar at the Jan. 14th business meeting. The calendar features an Aug. 26, 2019, start for school, and a June 11, 2020, end date.

The calendar for next year is very similar to the current calendar, featuring parent-teacher conferences the week of Thanksgiving (meaning a full week off for students), and a winter break spanning Dec. 23 to Jan. 1.

Half-days have been included throughout the calendar year to accommodate in-service opportunities for professional and support staffs. Spring break will begin April 8 (which is an in-service day for graduation projects) and continue through April 13.

Graduation is planned for June 5, 2020. Three snow days have been built into this calendar. If none or only some of the snow days are used, the last day of school could be earlier than June 11.

Are you looking for ways you can support South Elementary?

posted May 16, 2017, 7:44 AM by Elizabeth Dowiak   [ updated Jul 5, 2017, 10:51 AM ]

There are many programs that we can participate in easily to help financially support our school.  
REDNER’S SAVE A TAPE PROGRAMSouth earns 1% back for every receipt tape you submit from Redner's Warehouse Markets. A receipt only qualifies if the Rewards Card was used at checkout and it includes all purchases as well as the portion that says “Today’s 1% Save-A-Tape Total”. You can help even more by asking family members, friends, neighbors, or co-workers to save their receipts for you to hand in. The reimbursement the school receives will help fund activities and resources for our students.  Receipts can be sent in any time during the school year in an envelope or bag marked for Home and School.
 
Box Tops for Education (BTFE) – There are three ways to support South through the BTFE program: (1) Clip Box Tops for Education from participating products (e.g., Cheerios, Nature Valley, Annie’s, Yoplait, Green Giant, Mott’s, Ziploc, Lysol, Old El Paso, Progresso Soups, Kleenex, Scott, Land o’Lakes, Fiber One, Hefty ) and send them in to the school. We’ll have at least three BTFE collection contests during the school year, but you can also leave them at any time in the collection drawers in the school lobby, preferably in envelopes or baggies.  Please label with number of Box Tops  and Teachers name. (2) Download the new Box Tops Bonus App and take advantage of its special offers to earn bonus Box Tops on products you buy. (3) Create an account on the BFTE Web Site and enter the periodic sweepstakes and giveaways that are offered. (You can also download coupons for BTFE products from the web site.) For example, there’s currently a contest that will give each of five winning schools 5,000 Bonus Box Tops. You can enter each ongoing contest daily, and although this one ends on February 19, new contests appear regularly. For each regular or bonus Box Top, South will earn 10¢ — which doesn’t seem like much but really adds up when we all contribute.  Our annual goal is 30,000 Box Tops or $3,000  for our school! This money gets turned around and put right back into our school, for our teachers and our students. Be sure to continue clipping for the BTFE contest coming this year!

Shop AMAZON to help us raise funds for South - South Home and School is participating with AMAZON SMILE.  This is an ongoing way for us to raise funds for our school!  Please shop through the link below and a percentage of eligible purchases will be donated back to South.
