Pleasant View PTA: The PTA Meeting is at 9 am on Monday, March 4th in the cafeteria.  The minutes from the February PTA meeting and the agenda for the March meeting are posted on our website.

World Culture Night – April 12th – VOLUNTEERS  are NEEDED to Showcase Countries

Pleasant View is excited for World Culture Night on Friday, April 12th from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.!  World Culture Night will celebrate the diverse cultures found in countries throughout the world as well as in Pleasant View.  It is a fun-filled event emphasizing understanding, acceptance, empathy and unity.  To make this event a success, participation is needed to help showcase a country of which you are familiar.   The displays are meant to help students learn about a country’s people and places and may include:

  • Size and location of the country
  • Capital and Country Flag
  • Typical day-to-day lifestyle
  • Cultural traditions
  • Common foods of the country
  • Any interesting facts!

We would also like to showcase dances, games, foods to share, etc. from the different countries.   Both parental and children participation is encouraged, and hopefully the whole family will want to participate in creating the displays, as well as dancing, games and food preparation.   Children will be given a “Passport” as they come that night so that they can get a sticker “stamp” for each country they visit.  At the end of the night, they can show their “stamped” passports and receive a prize.

Please contact Riddhi Satturu at (563) 650-7077 or wdmsurat@gmail.com or Ana Olsen at 563-650-6689 or olsenanach@me.com if you would like to be a part of this fun event!

World Culture Night Volunteers Needed: Pleasant View is excited for World Culture Night on Friday, April 12th from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.!  World Culture Night will celebrate the diverse cultures found in countries throughout the world as well as in Pleasant View.  It is a fun-filled event emphasizing understanding, acceptance, empathy and unity.  To make this event a success, participation is needed to help showcase a country of which you are familiar.   The displays are meant to help students learn about a country’s people and places and may include:

  • Size and location of the country
  • Capital and Country Flag
  • Typical day-to-day lifestyle
  • Cultural traditions
  • Common foods of the country
  • Any interesting facts!

We would also like to showcase dances, games, foods to share, etc. from the different countries.   Both parental and children participation is encouraged, and hopefully the whole family will want to participate in creating the displays, as well as dancing, games and food preparation.   Children will be given a “Passport” as they come that night so that they can get a sticker “stamp” for each country they visit.  At the end of the night, they can show their “stamped” passports and receive a prize.

Please contact Riddhi Satturu at (563) 650-7077 or wdmsurat@gmail.com or Ana Olsen at 563-650-6689 or olsenanach@me.com if you would like to be a part of this fun event!

Reminder to all PVCSD Families:  The one-way drive on the north side of Pleasant Valley High School is for student drop-off and pick-up only.  Parking and leaving an unattended vehicle on the one-way drive is prohibited.

Holiday Childcare Day: During this busy time of year, PVHS Spartan Assembly wants to help you check the items off of your holiday to-do list this Saturday, December 15th by offering childcare! Sign your children up for the Holiday Childcare Day from 1:00-5:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 15th at Pleasant Valley High School in the Cafeteria.  This Holiday Childcare day will be hosted by Spartan Assembly to fundraise for their state project and will be a fun filled day of holiday dancing, games, crafts and cookie decorating.  Each child costs $5/hour or $20 for the whole event, parents may register by clicking here.  Please click here to fill out the waiver prior to the event and bring it with your child this Saturday. Drop off and pickup will be outside the N1 or W1 door.

Spartan Safe Snack List Reminder:  With the upcoming holiday season and parties upon us, PVCSD nurses wanted to remind families of the policy in the district with regards to the food items brought into elementary classrooms. Due to the increasing numbers of children with severe food allergies, PVCSD has created one complete list called the Spartan Safe Snack List, which is to be used to determine appropriate snacks for all parties and projects. The items on the list have been verified as safe. Much work has been put into making sure the manufacturing process is safe. New information has been provided since last school year via letters home, website updates, eNews, and teacher newsletters. The approved list is posted on the PV website (click here to view), and is available in the school office.

If a specific item is not on the list, it will be sent home. As you plan for the winter party and gifts, please understand that student safety must come first. Obviously, this may cause some inconveniences and disappointments, but inconveniences and disappointments do not justify a compromise to student safety. Thank you for understanding. Please contact your school nurse if you have questions.

Spartan Safe Snack List Reminder:  With the upcoming holiday season and parties upon us, PVCSD nurses wanted to remind families of the policy in the district with regards to the food items brought into elementary classrooms. Due to the increasing numbers of children with severe food allergies, PVCSD has created one complete list called the Spartan Safe Snack List, which is to be used to determine appropriate snacks for all parties and projects. The items on the list have been verified as safe. Much work has been put into making sure the manufacturing process is safe. New information has been provided since last school year via letters home, website updates, eNews, and teacher newsletters. The approved list is posted on the PV website (click here to view), and is available in the school office.

If a specific item is not on the list, it will be sent home. As you plan for the winter party and gifts, please understand that student safety must come first. Obviously, this may cause some inconveniences and disappointments, but inconveniences and disappointments do not justify a compromise to student safety. Thank you for understanding. Please contact your school nurse if you have questions.

We will accept pants, sweaters, coats, mittens\gloves, hats, coats, and socks of any type. Please put your donations in one of the baskets in the commons area. Our goal is to collect at least 400 items which is about 3/4 of the kids in the entire school. Helping us is helping those in need get ready for winter. We ask every student to donate at least 1 item. Our event starts on Wednesday, December 5th and ends on Wednesday, December 19th. We hope you will help.  We thank you for your support!

Socks of Love” Project: Pleasant View has a wonderful history of caring for others in so many ways.  We have done this over the years as a staff and as a whole school with wonderful support from families. This year, Pleasant View’s Culture and Climate committee, along with the PTA, have decided to once again partner with King’s Harvest in Davenport to help the homeless and less fortunate in our area.  You might remember our successful laundry pod project from last year for King’s Harvest.  This year Pleasant View would like help with collecting items listed below, and assembling “Socks of Love.”  The donated items will be assembled as care packages for those in need.

A brief explanation for this exciting project will take place during Character Circles on Friday, November 30th, and the collection of items will begin on Monday, December 3rd.  All items will be due by December 13th.  (Each teacher will have a box for his/her room to collect items in.)  December 17th will be the assembling day.  Our teachers will sign-up for a time slot to bring their class down to the lobby to help assemble the “Socks of Love”.  These will be handed out at King’s Harvest later in December and through the winter months.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. There will be opportunities for parents volunteer on December 17th.  Additional information about this opportunity will be sent in the near future.

WINTER PROGRAM, DECEMBER 6:    Cody will be having two performances for the Winter Program again this year.  Due to the amazing number of family and friends who have attended in previous years, it has become necessary to offer two performance times.  Cody will use the following system to reduce the number of audience members in a given performance and therefore reduce the wait time and increase the seating availability. Cody will alternate which half of the alphabet goes first every year.

Some things to keep in mind for this event:

  • Busses arrive between 8:10am and 8:20 am to drop off students for the day.  They begin lining up for dismissal at around 2:50 pm.

“Cody Families” at Cody School: Part of our mission at Cody School is to create an inclusive learning environment.  One way we promote this is through the activities of “Cody Families”.  Cody Families are comprised of students of various grades who are under a leader who is a staff member at Cody.  Every teacher and staff member has a “family” of about 12 members.  We meet in our families several times a year to do Character Counts activities.  We will meet in our families on Tuesday, November 20, 2018.  The focus of this activity is Kindness as a celebration of World Kindness Day which was November 13th.  The lesson is based on a book by Mo Willems, Leonardo and the Terrible Monster.  Ask your child on Tuesday about their “Cody Family” experience.

Pleasant View

Announcements

Student Drop-Off Procedure Reminder from Principal Cotton:  As the temperatures get colder throughout the year, Pleasant View typically observes more and more students in the drop-off zone getting out of cars as close to the school as possible.  This means that parents are having their kids wait in their car until they are near the steps that lead up to the patio.  Please know that this causes a large back-up in our drop-off zone and driveway.  When this happens, kids may end up tardy to school because the doors on the patio area of the building are automatically locked at 8:30 a.m.

As I explain in my drop-off/pick-up zone video that is posted on the Pleasant View website, the entire sidewalk is considered the drop-off zone.  When the line of cars comes to a stop, children should begin exiting cars and walking along the sidewalk to the school.  If everyone would follow this procedure, student drop-off would take little time and few students would end up tardy to school.  I started this message with recognizing that temperatures are getting colder.  Please have your child appropriately dressed in a winter coat, hat, gloves, etc. each day so they can exit the car along the sidewalk and remain as warm as possible during this short walk into the school from the car.

A variety of videos and pictures about our pick-up/drop-off procedures can be found at this link:  Pleasant View Parking Lot Procedures.  Feel free to contact me with questions or concerns about our student drop-off procedures.

4th – 6th Grade Battle of the Books: Pleasant View students in 4th-6th grade are invited to participate in a Battle of the Books style competition. Using the Iowa Children’s Choice Award list, teams of students will have the opportunity to compete in a local, district, and regional events. Team registration has begun!  If your child is interested in participating, Click Here for more information or contact Mrs. Anderson, Teacher Librarian andersonbeverly@pleasval.k12.ia.us

Announcements

Reminder of Junior High Library Policies and Procedures: Books are checked out for a two week (10 school day) time period. There is a five day grace period from when the book is due to when the overdue fine is incurred. On the fifth day a fine of $.25 starts accruing at a rate of $.05 a day until the book is returned. Courtesy emails are sent out every Monday morning. If the “subject” line states overdue notice it means that the book(s) has not been returned. If the “subject” line states fine notice it means the book(s) has been returned, but it was returned late and a fine has incurred. Fines can be paid in the library. Students are allowed to have one book checked out with a fine. Please note, we cannot transfer money from a student’s lunch account to pay the library fine.

Paralleling our month long reading incentive, Cody Library is also encouraging students to check-out materials that they simply enjoy reading.  This may include:

  • Expanding our definition of reading to include non-fiction, graphic novels, comics, nonfiction, comic strips, humor, magazines, newspapers, and online text
  • Getting students to recommend reading they do like to other students.
  • Providing students with role models for reading in school and at home.

Although these suggestions come from the “Guys Read” initiative created by renowned children’s book author Jon Scieszka, everyone’s love of reading will always be supported here at Cody Library!
