Welcome to PV 2017-2018

 

principalPuma Families...

Happy New Year! I sincerely hope the summer holiday has been filled with great family memories. As promised before the summer break, I wanted to send notice that our online registration process has opened earlier than expected and is NOW OPEN!  Remember, this is a TWO part process and both parts need to be completed. There is no longer a walk-thru registration component at Pine Valley.  Click Here to begin Pine Valley registration.

 

I apologize in advance for the long message, but lots of information to share at the beginning of a brand new school year! Exciting and important information!

The purpose of this message is just to remind everyone of a couple of things... I know the next few weeks will be very busy for everyone. As a reminder for veteran parents and new information for incoming parents... the first week of school is called WOW Week (Week of Welcome). It is not about homework policies or behavior consequences... it is about getting to know each other as a school community. From August 14-16, students will be going to their assigned academic classes and meeting friends and teachers... but August 17 and 18 are much different. Students will join their “Family,” a class made up of an equal amount of 6th, 7th and 8th graders. Together, we break down stereotypes by participating in social activities that include a motivational speaker and an assembly called “Point of View.” This week allows us to build relationships that serve as the foundation for our academic goals. Thank you PTA and EdFund for supporting our WOW Week. Without your monetary support and presence on campus, this week would not be possible.

August 10: PTA Welcome Back Coffee at 10am (PV music room)

August 10: WEB Day (6th Grade Orientation): 6th Graders are invited from 10am- 12:30pm to meet their WEB Leader, participate in activities, get a campus tour and get their class schedules. A pizza lunch will be provided at noon.

August 14: This is the first day of school. School is from 8-11:20 (Minimum Day Schedule). TRAFFIX is aware of this. Sixth graders will receive their class schedules on WEB Day. Seventh and 8th graders can check Infinite Campus at Noon on August 11 for their schedules as NO hard copies will be distributed on August 14.

August 16: Late Start Wednesday. On Wednesdays at Pine Valley, school begins at 9:15 am. TRAFFIX is aware of this. For safety reasons, students are not to be on campus before 8:55 am.

August 21: Pictures will be taken for all students during PE classes.

August 24: Back to School Night will begin with a short welcome in the Pine Valley courtyard at 6:30 pm. Classrooms will open up at 6:40 and parents will follow their child’s schedule for the evening. There will be School Loop support in the library computer lab during your child’s lunch period. More information regarding Back to School Night will be provided as we get closer.

As the school year approaches, we often get questions in regards to class supply lists. These questions are understandable but are difficult to answer since different teachers have different requests, based on their curriculum and classroom management/organizational styles. Also, often with parent donations, teachers purchase and supply to students exactly what they want. Feel free to buy basics such as paper, pencils, pens, markers, etc., but please wait until the first week of school and the teacher will communicate any specifics.

Finally, as another reminder... SRVUSD will be transitioning to School Café, rather than Mealtime as the school’s lunch management system. You have received a couple of emails from the district about this and will be receiving more information next week from Pine Valley. This system provides services that Mealtime lacked and promises to give parents options they did not have before. All Mealtime funds leftover from last year will transfer to School Café safely.

Please continue to use this website, PumaPride.org as a resource for information.  If you can’t find your answer there, feel free to give us a call or send an email. We will do what we can to make this transition into another school year a smooth one. Please “like us” on Facebook and/or find us on Twitter to help with communication.

As I meet with teachers on our staff development day on August 11, I will remind them that we only get one chance to make a first impression. I hope the conversations around your home the first week of school project a sense of optimism.

We look forward to a wonderful year…

Puma Pride,

Jason Law

Principal

School Supplies

As the school year approaches, we often get questions in regards to class supply lists. These questions are understandable but are difficult to answer since different teachers have different recommendations... based on their curriculum and classroom management or organizational styles. Also, often with parent donations, teachers purchase and supply for students exactly what they may need.

Feel free to pick up basics such as paper, pencils, pens, markers, etc., but please wait until the first week of school and the teacher will communicate any specifics.

Students will always be provided the supplies they need for learning.
