NEW PICTURES INSIDE: Cody Under Construction

Posted February 22nd, 2017

Cody students moved into the new section of the building just before Winter Break and moved out of the library at the end of January.  Since then, construction crews have been busy renovating the old library and surrounding classrooms.  They also cut a hole in the ceiling and put in beautiful skylights.   Check out the progress in the pictures below.  Students will be using the new classrooms and new library in the 2017-18 school year!

 

More than 500 Students Participate in District Choir Festival

Posted February 9th, 2017

The Choir program in Pleasant Valley is growing and growing fast.  More than 500 students sang at this year’s District Choir Festival on Monday February 7, 2017.  That doesn’t count the nearly 300 students in the 4/5th grade choirs!

Students tackled songs from certain decades with each choir dressing up in the fashion of the times.  Check out the pictures below and video from the festival.

Special thank you  Choral Directors Meg Byrne, Rob Williams, Catherine Lyon, Peter Grau, and Margaret Thompson.  We also extend our thanks to our accompanists Dr. Perry Myers and Becky Seward.

Cody Students and Staff Move in to New Addition

Posted January 31st, 2017

UPDATE  January 26, 2017:  After a successful move into the new addition at Cody, students, staff and volunteers moved into the temporary library.  The library will be renovated into a new state-of-the-art media center.  In the meantime, students will use what used to be Mrs. Duncan and Mrs. VenHorst’s room as a temporary library.  Crews have already started work on what used to be Mrs. Notton, Mr. Grafenberg, and Mr. Hoppe’s rooms.  Check out the pictures below!

December 19, 2016:  The excitement bounced off the walls at Cody Elementary on Friday, December 16, 2016.  It may be that they were just one week away from Winter break – or it could be seeing the brand new addition for the first time, and then getting to MOVE IN!

Fourth through Sixth Grade students spent the day moving from their old classrooms to new classrooms in the much-awaited addition.  Construction crews have been pounding, drilling and sawing since spring of last year, and curiosity has grown and grown.  The addition houses six new classrooms, new lockers, and new bathrooms.

As the students move in to the new space, construction crews will renovate the old classrooms and the library – adding extra space, which will allow for PV’s growing enrollment.

Check out pictures below and get a real feel of what the day was like from this story from WQAD.

Student Artists Shine at PTA Reflections Ceremony

Posted January 18th, 2017

 

Pleasant Valley students showed off their skills at the PTA Reflections Awards Ceremony on Thursday, January 12, 2017.  This program continues to grow.  This year, PV had 249 entries from  198 students!

The PTA Reflections contest is a nationwide contest to support Arts Education. Students create their projects on their own time and submit artwork in six different catagories:  dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts.  The work is judged by adult artists and each student receives a critique.  At the ceremony, all work is on display as each student is individually recognized for his or her creation.

Special thank you to co-chairs, Denise McGregor and Tosha Allen, as well as the chairs at each individual school:  Leta Rose (Bridgeview) Amy Hartz (Cody), Sharon Tinsman (Hopewell), Angela Brand (Pleasant View), Tosha Allen (Riverdale Heights), Kathleen Fitzgerald (PVJH), Shawn Rice (Edison Academy) and Jennifer Krier (PVHS).
