PV Schools

Dear PV Colleagues and Community:

As the winter holidays are upon us, and we savor time with family friends, we recognize Nature’s gift of the solstice with the days slowly growing longer once again. Our students have been exuberant, and sometimes unruly, in these weeks before the break. Some are eager and expectant; others are anxious and, sometimes even fearful anticipating the lack of steadiness and safety they find in the school routine.

We realize that the students we teach and families we serve have many different experiences and challenges; we also believe that we share much in common.  All seek to be noticed, recognized as individuals, and loved.   All have gifts to give of themselves and their spirit. In our schools, we are looking for the just the right way to open their gifts, so that our children are fulfilling their purpose and finding their fulfillment.

May the New Year present the perfect time for the gift to be discovered.

Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,

the world offers itself to your imagination

calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting—

over and over announcing your place

in the family of things.
