Outdoor Classroom Update ~ 3/8/19
While we are waiting for irrigation to go in for the beautiful new planter boxes, 2nd Grade has been busy planting and watching their garden grow – radishes, broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce, snap peas, carrots and spinach!
Jog-a-thon – THANK YOU and … We Did It!
THANK YOU to everyone for another successful Jog-a-thon! The students impressed us all with their perseverance and can-do attitude out on the track. It was so encouraging to see the parents, siblings and grandparents out there cheering their runners on. Thank you to our teachers, staff, Mr. Mosgrove, and our custodian, Mr. Armin, for assisting us with this event — we could not do it without them. Thank you to our Friends of the Foundation and especially to Laces Running Company, CPK, Mira Mesa Auto Techs, Pacific Polo, Smart Solar, Eye Level, i-Ortho, and Jen Howard for supporting this year’s Jog-a-thon. A special shout-out goes to Victor Rubio for putting together the music playlist and DJ’ing the event.
We have completed calculations of our Jog-a-thon donations, and we have some exciting news! Our SCHOOL-WIDE GOAL of raising $20,000 was MET. Not only was it met, your donations SURPASSED the goal, bringing the grand total to over $31,500! CONGRATULATIONS!

Outdoor Classroom Update ~ 1/25/19
We had a great turnout for the first Outdoor Classroom build party last weekend. Six amazing planter boxes were built! In addition to building the planter boxes, we also touched up the handball wall poles. This is what the DADS Group is about: DADS with TOOLS building a legacy that our kids and future penguins will enjoy! Special thanks to Ryan Broley for picking up all the lumber and doing the prep work; and all the kids who helped with the build and campus cleanup.
Our next build party is on Sunday Feb 10, 8:00am to 12:00pm. Please sign up to help finish the poles, build a ramp, and possibly lay down some pavers. No experience necessary! Sign Up: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e084ea9ae2da5f85-210

Double Your Donation with Corporate Matching
Thank you for your Golden Envelope Pledge Drive donations! We are halfway to our 2018-2019 budgeted goal of $150,000. Although our annual Pledge Drive has come to an end, we accept donations all year long. Your tax-deductible donation can easily be doubled with corporate matching. Check with your company’s Human Resources Department to see if they match employee charitable donations. You can also go to Matching Gift Search to find out if your company has a matching gift policy.
Acknowledgement letters for donations of $250 or more are being mailed soon, and serve as your donation receipt. If you require a receipt sooner, or for a donation of less than $250, please contact the Treasurer. Thank you for taking a few minutes to inquire about corporate matching. Imagine what we could do at Park Village with more!
At the Library:
- With a donation of $100… Mrs. Fleming could support Mrs. Burgstaller’s “No Place for Hate” program by purchasing the library books that we don’t already own.
- With a donation of $250…Mrs. Fleming could replace the small, worn out bookends with larger steel ones with magnetic bases (in fun colors) and refresh the library décor with a vinyl wall quote.
- With a donation of $350… Mrs. Fleming could buy approximately 23 hardcover books for the library, specifically “student choice” titles that the students wish we had. That in turn would free up other funds and enable her to purchase more books for other areas of the collection.
Outdoor Classroom / Learning Garden
Thanks to the hard work and muscle of our DADS Group, and funding from PV Foundation, there is a new fence up behind the kindergarten playground. This space is the location of PV’s newest project: the outdoor classroom / learning garden. Principal Mosgrove is working with a Master Gardener for design, planning, and implementation of the garden, as well as classroom lessons. 2nd grade classes have begun planting seeds. 3rd grade classes are growing milkweed and studying the butterfly life cycle. 4th grade classes will soon be learning about composting. Up next is constructing irrigation lines, installing a pathway into the area, and building raised planter boxes. We look forward to the upcoming months as the new garden take shape!
