Home & School Association
Welcome back to the Penn Valley Home and School Association (HSA) page! We know there is a great deal of uncertainty associated with the year ahead, but the HSA is here, and we are committed to building community during these challenging times. For those new to Penn Valley, the HSA is an organization of parents and caregivers who help make Penn Valley a great community for our children.
This year, our Homeroom Ambassador program will be of critical importance, and they will serve as an essential link to help families feel connected to Penn Valley. Each class will have one or two parents/caregivers in this role to organize events virtually and potentially in-person if circumstances allow. If you are interested in serving as a Homeroom Ambassador (no experience necessary!), please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We know how important it will be for you to connect with your classmates, and we will be offering a digital directory this fall. Please keep an eye out for information about paying dues as well as how to obtain the directory. In addition to the events that the HSA hosts, we also help fund many important activities and education opportunities for our kids. We sponsor field trips for all classes in all grades (when they are able to occur again), and we help offset purchases for our classrooms. Around the school, you’ll see the HSA’s fundraising at work including the Gaga Pit on the playground, outdoor benches, meals for teacher and staff appreciation events, technology for the auditorium and much more!
We work to foster a sense of community at Penn Valley between families, teachers and staff. The best way to feel connected at Penn Valley is to get involved. While there is uncertainty regarding which events will happen, we still want to gather new volunteers. And if you have ideas on ways to connect us during these unusual times, we want to hear from you, too! Please email us at email@example.com. Thank you, and we look forward to meeting you!
