Inductees will be honored on Oct. 18, 2019, with a private reception and ceremony. Public recognition will take place prior to the start of the Homecoming football game that same evening at 6:45 p.m. 

The Perkiomen Valley School District Hall of Fame was established in 2018 to recognize distinguished alumni, or others, whose outstanding athletic, professional, or civic endeavors have brought honor to Perkiomen Valley School District and serve to inspire future graduates to perform and serve in the same spirit. 

A Selection Committee chose this year's class of inductees based on reviewing numerous nominations and based their decisions off the criteria listed below. In addition to the public recognition during Homecoming, nominees also have a plaque dedicated in their honor and installed permanently in the Hall of Fame located outside the competition gym in Perkiomen Valley High School.

We're excited to announce the launch of the new PVSD Alumni Network: alumni.pvsd.org! This alumni portal offers PV graduates a way to stay connected to fellow classmates and the district through an online community that is tailored specifically for alumni interests. If you are a PV grad, or know someone who is, please share news about this platform and its many benefits. See below for more information.

What does the Alumni Portal allow you to do?
  • Connect and network with over 1,000 (and growing) PV alumni. Explore what your peers are up to and find alumni near you.
  • Learn about events, career opportunities, and important news from the community.
  • Reconnect with your old friends, and share what's new in your lives.
  • Learn about ways in which you can contribute to the future of the district.
How is it different from a social network?
  • This is an exclusive private community with access restricted to only our alumni.
  • Provides a safe, secure way to support one another for career connections, mentorship, professional advice etc.
  • The data is secure and no third party can access it.

2019-20 Instructional Calendar Approved

calendar
The Perkiomen Valley School Board approved the 2019-20 instructional calendar at the Jan. 14th business meeting. The calendar features an Aug. 26, 2019, start for school, and a June 11, 2020, end date.

The calendar for next year is very similar to the current calendar, featuring parent-teacher conferences the week of Thanksgiving (meaning a full week off for students), and a winter break spanning Dec. 23 to Jan. 1.

Half-days have been included throughout the calendar year to accommodate in-service opportunities for professional and support staffs. Spring break will begin April 8 (which is an in-service day for graduation projects) and continue through April 13.

Graduation is planned for June 5, 2020. Three snow days have been built into this calendar. If none or only some of the snow days are used, the last day of school could be earlier than June 11.
