Welcome from the PVMS PTO

The PVMS PTO is a volunteer organization made up of parents, caregivers, teachers, administrators, and support staff who all are dedicated to the successful education of our children.

The purpose of our organization is to aid the students and staff by providing support for educational and recreational needs; to promote open communication between the administration, teachers, and parents; as well as to encourage school spirit and pride.  The PTO uses its resources,  both manpower and monetary, to support our school community.

We encourage you to get involved!

Upcoming PTO Meetings for 2016-2017

The next meeting will be scheduled in August to plan for the upcoming school year and elect officers.  Thanks for a great year!

Announcements

  • Thanks for another great BOGO Book Fair!

    Thank you to everyone who volunteered their time to help run the book fair this year!  The BOGO book fair requires a lot of extra hands!  We could  not have done it without you!

    Also, thank you to the faculty, staff, students, and families that supported the book fair... whether buying books for yourselves or as gifts!  We love to see exciting books fly off the shelves and into the hands of interested readers!  Plus, getting a free book for each book purchased is a wonderful gift to our shoppers!

    Finally, we were able to donate $120 worth of books with the money raised from our Family Dance that went back into classroom libraries from teacher wish lists!  On top of that, we were able to donate another $320 worth of books from points accrued from our book fairs this year!  So, thank you everyone for your support and generosity!  We were able to give back where reading means the most!

Labels for Education

  

This program is phasing out.  Campbell's will continue to accept Labels for Education from products remaining in circulation, but the company is no longer manufacturing products that include a Label for Education.  Please send in to school any remaining Labels for Education!   Form more information, please click here: https://www.labelsforeducation.com

My Coke Rewards

  

Did you know that you can donate My Coke Rewards points to PVMS?!  It's true!  When you purchase eligible Coke products (like Dasani, Sprite, Minute Maid, Powerade Ion, and more), you can enter the code at Donate My Coke Rewards.  Just find our school by Zip Code, log in or register, then click "Donate Points Now" to help our school get things we need.

If all that registering and looking online is just too much hassle, we understand!  Just send your caps/codes in to school and we'll take care of it for you!
