Principal's Message

December 2017



Puma Families…


Before we take off for our Winter Break, I just wanted to thank everyone for a wonderful first semester!  Yes, what gets lost in the chaos of the holiday season is the fact that we have reached the halfway point of our school year.  When we return to school on January 8, 6th graders will be closer to 7th grade than 5th and 8th graders will only be five months from Promotion!  Seventh grade parents… you are half way through middle school!  Yikes! 


As a reminder, report cards are not sent home and will only be available via the Infinite Campus Parent Portal in January.  Spring schedules for the second semester will be available for viewing on Saturday, January 6.  For 7th and 8th graders, many electives change, as well as many PE classes.  The only class to change for 6th graders is the Wheel rotation.


Please check your family calendars as there are some off days to take note of in January.  There is no school January 15 and 16 (MLK and District Wide Staff Development Day).  Finally, Monday, January 22 is a minimum day (dismissal at 11:20am) for the students.  I sometimes here from parents about the inconvenience of these staff work days.  Please note that these days are calendared at the district level and not decided at Pine Valley.  Regardless, these staff days are utilized and appreciated, as teachers participate in many district and site activities in order to improve their practice.


Before I let you go… I want to thank PV PTA parent, Jenny Kunz for helping to organize this year’s Sister School Holiday Toy Drive.  Our community alone collected 671 toys for our sister school, Parkside Elementary in Pittsburg.  With our friends at Neil Armstrong, over 1000 toys were delivered.  What an amazing community of givers! 


So as we say goodbye to 2017 and express our appreciation for the lessons learned, we welcome the new challenges of 2018!  We are ready for whatever you can dish out!


Happy holidays Puma families…  Enjoy the Winter Break!
