Parent Teacher Student Organization

The main goal of the PTSO is to organize family participation in the PVMS community. The PSTO meets regularly and provides social and educational opportunities for both parents and children. All parents are encouraged to attend and participate. Children are welcome at the meetings - child care will be provided upon request. Parents should contact the PTSO if they are unable to attend a meeting but would like to participate. Topics for meetings and summaries of past meetings will be published in the school newsletter. In addition to providing support for the school, parent involvement has an important positive effect on our children. Working at the school is a visible demonstration of concern and commitment perceived by our children. Active involvement also provides insight into your child's educational experience at PVMS and allows parents to meet one another and form a community within the school.

The PTSO sponsors fundraisers each year to help pay for PTSO family activities, field trips, guest speakers and other programs for parents and children at PVMS. The PTSO also gives a gift to the school for the teachers to buy classroom materials. There is a $35.00 per family PTSO activity fee, payable with the total school tuition payments. Dues are used to cover the costs of children’s activities such as the Halloween Party, Winter Event, etc.
