In honor of the Centennial celebration in PV Schools we are offering a Centennial Memory Book. One hundred pages of events, history and memories developed by our schools can't be missed.The memory book is yours with a $100 donation to TFPE.

The Foundation for Public Education

It is a tremendous honor for PV Schools to have a partnership with an organization so committed to the success of our students. Over the years, The Foundation For Public Education has helped fund a number of programs that have directly benefited our students. I encourage you to support the Foundation For Public Education and the students of PV Schools with a tax-deductible donation.

We all know that the future of our community, state and country rely on the skills and abilities of children currently enrolled in our schools.

You can help us in a variety of ways to give our students every chance of success.

Fostering excellence in public education is The Foundation for Public Education's mission. Our dream is to see every dedicated student have access to the programs and quality education they deserve.
