Dear PVHS Families,

We have a unique opportunity this summer to offer a series of two-hour picnics to acclimate students back into a school setting. We want to give all students the chance to socialize with peers, meet teachers, and have some fun during the summer months. Every Wednesday during the summer we will hold a two-hour picnic from 1pm-3pm focusing on a different subject area. Our librarian, Mrs. DeMaine will also be on-site for any student who has research questions or would like to take out a book.  This program is specifically geared towards welcoming new students to our building, rising 8th graders, and rising 9th graders who are not as familiar with our building. We hope you will join us for some unique and fun experiences!

Please fill out the Google Form to let us know if you are interested in attending! FORM

Sincerely,
Sandra Intrieri
