Welcome PVS Families!

Our PTO’s mission is to enhance the learning environment of students by providing educational services to families and raising funds to meet the needs of the school community. We believe...

  • Any amount of volunteer time you can give makes a positive difference in the lives of children at PVS.
  • Organization, efficiency and leadership are the keys to successful PTO initiatives.
  • Volunteer opportunities should match the time constraints of today’s busy families.
  • Identifying school needs will steer the PTO fundraising efforts.
  • We value the sense of community by promoting the development of friendships and personal growth opportunities in leadership.

We want to promote an educational environment where teachers can do their best work and students can do their best learning. We hope you will join us in our efforts and become an active member of your child’s school!

PVS Peace Shirts are a fun way to help your child show their school spirit and participate in our many "peace rallies" throughout the school year! Peace Shirts are $15 and are delivered to your child at school. These short-sleeve cotton t-shirts are available in sizes Youth XS-XL, and are optional to purchase.    Purchase a PVS Peace Shirt here.

School Supply Kits are a convenient option to the traditional school supply shopping list at the start of a new year! Rather than shop for your own supplies, let the PTO provide your child with a complete kit filled with the exact items on their list. School Supply kits are $35 and are delivered to your child at school. Purchasing a kit is optional and is a complimentary service provided by the PTO (not a fundraiser).    Purchase a School Supply Kit here.
