Dear PVS Families,
As a parent of a student who has attended PVS over the last 5 years, I am honored to help kick off this year’s annual appeal. Our daughter started in kindergarten and quickly immersed herself in the sweet rhythms of the youngest PVS students. From the beginning, the storytelling, outdoor play, singing and arts-inspired curriculum suited every part of her. In our search for the right school, our family focused on finding an environment where her imagination and emotional growth would be respected and encouraged. I am so grateful that PVS has continued to be this fit for our family. Having access to this free education is a privilege! I ask you to join me in supporting our amazing school.
- Brenda Fowler, parent of Eleanor (3rd grade)

As a public charter school PVS receives 77.6% of the state funding of PPS neighborhood schools. The amount of per student state funding changes multiple times during the school year, can be decreased, is based on enrollment, and can be reduced retroactively. As a public charter we are also required to maintain financial stability as one of the statutory requirements for Charter renewal in ORS 338.065(8)(a)(D). Maintaining this stability with an unstable funding model makes budgeting difficult so PVS relies on fundraising to fill in those gaps.
While $120 donation per child will quickly get us to our goal any amount is welcome and we are grateful for anything you are able to give!
Thank you for your continued support!
Your PVS Fundraising Committee
