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 2017-2018

All meetings will be held in the PVMS Art Room at 5:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted on the second Monday of the month.

We've Got Spirit Sticks!

  

New at PVMS... Spirit Sticks for just $1 each!  

Kids love them!  They attach them to their backpacks to show off their school spirit!  

We have many different styles and you can purchase them in the school office!

Save the Planet! Color Cycle!

    

In partnership with Crayola, we can repurpose used markers and turn them into energy!  Send in your unusable markers, dry erase markers, and even highlighters from any brand and place them in our colorful collection bin!  Crayola then takes care of the rest by covering shipping to send them to a facility where they will be converted into clean fuel.  This fuel can be used to power vehicles, heat homes, cook meals, and more!  Let's save our planet!
