As part of our ongoing fundraising efforts, there will be a bottle drive at the school on Saturday, January 8. Save your empties from over the holidays and drop them off at the school that morning. More details will sent out after the holiday with a reminder.
“Golly Gee Whiz” is a collaborative musical theatre production put on by Ms. Larson and Mr. Majerech, and the more than 50 students enrolled in this course. We are so grateful that we are able to have audiences again. The new dates for the show are January 18, 19, and 20 at 7:00pm.
At this point, there have been so many changes to regulations around public gathering, vaccine passport requirements, and expectations for schools that we are reluctant to share information about safety rules for our show at this time. As soon as the holiday is over, we will send home that information. Stay tuned. Tickets will be available to purchase from the school on January 6. They are $15 for adults and $10 for children/seniors/students. You can purchase them in-person in the office by cash/cheque or by e-transfer to email@example.com. We strongly encourage pre-purchasing tickets because space is so limited.
The PVSS PAC is hosting a Lottery Ticket raffle to help support clubs and groups in our school such as Dance, Athletics and Leadership. The tickets will be on sale January 1-31, and the draw will take place on February 16 at the PAC Meeting. Tickets are $2 each and can be purchased at the PVSS office, from a member of PAC, at the door at performances of “Golly Gee Whiz”, or by contacting PAC through firstname.lastname@example.org. Payment must be made in cash, and ticket purchase is restricted to people 18+. We are selling 1500 tickets, and the prize is $60 in scratch tickets and $50 cash. Thank you to Valley First Credit Union for donating the prize!
End of Semester Schedule
The first semester of the year ends on January 27. We have scheduled semester-end and provincial assessments for the last week of January. Students will receive copies of their Semester 2 Schedules that week. Teachers will let students know what they need to do to prepare for final exams or assessment activities. If students don’t need to be at school at a specific time or on a specific day, they are welcome to stay home. Friday, January 28 is a Semester Turn-Around Day, and school is not in session for students. The first day of the second semester is Monday, January 31.
