School Supply Ordering: Don’t forget to order your child’s School Supply Box for the 2019-20 school year!  This helps you save time and money when back-to-school shopping.  Everything your child needs for the classroom is in one box and is delivered directly to the school. Order deadline is June 16, 2019. Supplies will be delivered before school starts in August.  Look for them at Meet and Greet Night.  This is not a fundraiser, but a service provided by the Riverdale Heights PTA. For questions, contact Wendy Bock, bockw@bhc.edu.

To order online:
1) Go to: www.educationalproducts.com/shoppacks
2) Enter our school code: RIV052

RDH Yearbook: Anyone who would like to order a yearbook for this year, can do so by contacting HR Imaging at 815-433-1766.  The cost is $15.00, plus shipping.

District Email Conversion: As a district we will be converting all students’ google logins from @student.pleasval.k12.ia.us to @pleasval.org. This switch will take place June 13 and 14, so users may have some issues logging in during those two days. After June 14 in order to access your google account you will need to login with LastnameFirstname@pleasval.org, your password will remain the same and all of your documents and emails will transfer over to the @pleasval.org account. Please contact Kevin Pennekamp at pennekampkevin@pleasval.org if you have any questions or need assistance.

Summer Office Hours: RDH office hours will be June 10-14 from 7:00-3:00 pm.  The office will close for the summer from June 17-August 5, 2019 and will reopen on August 6 at 7:30 am.  The atrium will be under construction beginning June so YMCA care will need to enter and exit using the same entrance you use during the school day.  Ms. Gertson will be available over the summer should you need assistance prior to August 6.  Please contact her at gertsonjennifer@pleasval.org

Lost & Found: LAST CHANCE!!!! Are your kids missing their winter boots, lunch boxes, etc.?  Please check the lost and found table as many things have been left behind!  After Friday, everything will be donated.

School Board Superheroes Celebrated In May: May is School Board Recognition Month, sponsored by the Iowa Association of School Boards to celebrate the contributions of board members to Iowa public education.  The Pleasant Valley Community School District is celebrating our school board superheroes for their heroic work serving our students and our school. While board members are elected to the position by the community, they serve unpaid. They’re volunteers who are true superheroes—they spend a significant amount of time at regular monthly meetings, reviewing board materials, communicating with citizens, taking advantage of board learning opportunities, and attending school functions and activities. The  School Board is charged with governing our school district. They set the direction for the district, oversee the budget, develop policies and make decisions that impact the entire community. And most importantly—they are committed to student achievement.

  • Many companies are looking for part-time or seasonal help. Students 16 and older – now is a great time to get those vital workplace skills that businesses need and are missing from today’s prospective employees. I went on a tour to a genetics lab whose Customer Service Vice President said that she gets academically & technically prepared applicants but needs the basic, yet vital, workplace skills. She went on to say that she looks favorably on someone who has worked at Hy-Vee (entry level jobs), especially if it’s for a longer period of time because it shows they’ve developed good workplace skills. Skills like showing up on time, everyday; communication, teamwork, taking the initiative, and problem solving. Summer opportunities are also a great chance to develop both academic/technical skills and workplace skills.

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!

  • 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!
