These past few weeks there were many noteworthy events involving PVS students. Ms. Kendrick’s and Mr. Kolstad’s third grade classes were residents at Geer Crest Farm. Fifth graders took part in the Olympiad at Oxbow Park on the Sandy River. They were led by their teachers, Mrs. Lambertus, Mr. Reis, and Ms. Kennedy. The fourth grade classes of Ms. Hinrichs and Ms. Vitti had an enjoyable stay at Camp Collins for Potlatch last week. At all of these events our students were transported and supported by a large number of parent volunteers as well as PVS teachers.
The annual May Day Celebration that included students in Grades K-2, and 8th G. held at Kenton Park, was a testimony to reverence and our school as a community. In addition to the students being well prepared by their teachers, live music was provided at the park by a group consisting of PVS teachers, parents, and students.

Last month we announced to our community that we will be ramping up our search for a new site for our school in the coming weeks and months. Our landlords have extended our lease through June of 2018 so that they may move their school into this site the following school year.
We understand that this probably creates a lot of questions for you and your students/prospective students. We have put together both an FAQ of site related questions and a Prospectus for our new site wishes. You can find both of those at these links: Site Search FAQ and Prospectus (you will also see these listed under the About Us tab, Board section).
If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or site suggestions, please don't hesitate to contact the Site Committee, Mr. Berg, or the front office.
