- Welcome Back Everyone! We are excited to see students in Grades 1-8 on Tuesday, September 4th. Please remember there is early dismissal on this day at 11:15 AM. Buses will run as usual, just 3 hours earlier. The first day for new kindergarten students is on Wednesday, September 5th. You can scroll down to see the gradual entry schedule.
- On the first day, students are asked to line up outside as they did last year. Students will be returning to their previous teacher’s classroom to reconnect. This helps to ensure everything is in place before we move forward with class placements for the year. Please remember that students in grade 7 and 8 start at 8:08 AM. Students in grades K-6 start at 8:18 AM. The new bell schedule and rationale from our June Newsletter is included below.
- Our new kindergarten students start on Wednesday, September 5th on a gradual entry schedule as noted in our June Newsletter. We are excited to have these students join our wolf pack!

A reminder that Mr. El Gazzar, Principal of PVSS, is willing to pay our grade 8 grads $25 for reading at least 3 novels (not mini books) over the summer. A short summary of each novel is required. 4 more weeks to complete this challenge! 😊
