Penguin Squad Spirit Wear is here! Order by December 31

Thank you!

The PV Foundation thanks you for your support this year! The Foundation’s purpose is to:

  • Increase every student’s ability to achieve a superior, college-ready education
  • Raise funds to build and maintain our academic-based programs and community-building events
  • Provide our PUSD teaching staff with the tools they need to teach our children
  • Sustain our program coordinators in Art, Music, Science, and Physical Education
  • Inspire excellence and encourage camaraderie throughout our school
  • Support our school events and programs to foster relationships with our families and community

Specifically, we provide funding for:

  • Science (Mrs Nellies’ salary, lab materials)
  • Art (Mrs. Hirst’s salary, art materials)
  • Music (Miss LaDow’s salary)
  • Physical Education (Mrs. Mills’ salary, PE equipment)
  • Technology (iPads, Chromebooks, mall printers, printer cartridges, etc)
  • Library (Follet & Guild subscriptions, new books, etc)
  • Curriculum (ALEKS Math program, LEXIA Reading program, Penguin PALS, teacher training, assemblies, field trip transportation, homework folders, etc)
  • Outdoor classroom/learning garden (fencing, planter boxes, composters, irrigation, etc)
  • Family Events (Meet, Greet, & Eat, DADS Movie Night, DADS Canyon Bike Ride, DADS Astronomy Night, Canyon Quest, DADS Pancake Breakfast & Car Show, Penguin Rock, etc)
  • And more! We pay for staff CPR training, back-to-school and appreciation lunches for staff/teachers, supplies for school improvements done by the DADS Group, and many other things that help to keep our school running smoothly.

This year’s operating budget was $162,484 for all of these programs. We achieve this goal by the following avenues:

  • Annual Fall Pledge Drive & Corporate Matching
  • Friends of the Foundation Sponsors
  • Jog-a-thon
  • Family Game Night & Spring Online Auction
  • Disneyland, parking space, and spring basket raffles
  • Restaurant Nights, Spirit Wear, Yearbook, Book Fair, BoxTops, amazon.com

The PV Foundation is composed of Principal Mosgrove, two teacher advisors, and parent volunteers serving on the board. Our non-program, or administrative, expenses are only a small fraction our total operating budget. We do everything in-house, thus maximizing the reach of your dollars. With your participation, we are able to meet our fundraising goals. Any monies raised over our budget are used to enhance the education of our Penguins (ie, additional gifts to the library to update the collection, and additional weeks of music instruction with Miss LaDow). You make the difference in providing this enriched curriculum and experience at Park Village. THANK YOU!
