Parents: attached is the Remote Learning Plan Book. All of the teachers are constantly updating this document to improve educational communication with the families. Take care. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1PCyvZwEk8z5HsR-RP1xEnlcCgOSvMf82eM3Hz1W955c/edit?usp=sharing
Hi PVO The weather is getting nicer out and I hope you are getting some fresh air but practicing your six foot social distancing! What I would like you to do is take a picture/short video of something you have done together as a family and post it to our Facebook/Twitter account. Examples: An Art project, cooking project, STEM project, playing games, etc. Today, Mr. Fiscus (now Tuscola principal) ask his students to post a Dunking video (rim at whatever height). So start posting/sharing your positive picture/video with a description. I look forward to seeing all the pictures/videos. Thanks Mr. White
The link at the bottom of this email is a reference for online resources. It is broken down by teacher (see the tabs at the bottom).

Date: March 23, 2020 Re:Remote Learning To: PVO Families Hello PVO Families- These are some unprecedented times but the number one most important item for all of us is to be safe! The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) is encouraging school districts to provide some types of remote learning opportunities and PVO is here to help our students to continue their love for learning. This is not to add stress during these already stressful times, this is to help create a routine of learning for all the students in the district. Currently, schools are closed through April 7, this date is subject to change since these are unprecedented times. Teachers are currently organizing options to be shared with families and will be reaching out to you in the very near future (if our wonderful teachers and staff have not done so already). Many of these resources are for remote learning instruction, if you do not have the ability for remote learning instruction please reach out to your child(s) teacher(s) and we will do our best to match up a paper version lesson to our remote learning resources through mail/or through staff delivery. We ask that you do not come to the schools unless otherwise arranged for special purposes. The offices will be open daily from 8:00 to 12:00 noon to assist so please call us. We have set up a tentative schedule for the teachers and students to follow, but it may vary depending on the grade level: Mondays and Wednesdays: Math and Reading Tuesday and Thursdays: English Language Arts and Reading Fridays: Social Studies and/or Science and Reading Reading is listed every day. It could be what is suggested by the teachers, but it could also be as simple as reading a cartoon, short story or a news article. We are currently collecting resources and putting them in one location for all families with internet access to view. A link will be provided on Tuesday, March 24th through email and Facebook correspondence. The most important things to remember with remote learning right now is to have continuity, structure, and support! Please continue to communicate with the PVO teacher(s) via email, Class Dojo, or any other communication platform. Sincerely, Mr. White, Mr. Isenhower, Mr. Heuer, and PVO Teachers
The 2020-21 pre-kindergarten registration is cancelled and we will reschedule once Covid-19 all clear is given.
The Governor just extended that all school districts are closed through April 8. We will still be providing meals to any PVO student (email the cooks) during this time. I will provide more information after Monday’s meeting about PVO’s continued learning during this time. Stay healthy!
Hi PVO During the school shut down bc of the Coronavirus/Covid-19 we will be providing FREE “Grab and Go Snack Lunches” to any PVO student that wants one starting Monday, March 23. The Pick up time will be from 10-11 a.m each day at all three buildings (Monday through Friday). So all you need to do email the cook/school you want to pick the meal up at (see below) and provide your name, and student (s) name by Thursday at 10a.m. so we can order food. You can pick which building is closest to your home/babysitter not necessarily where your child(ren) go to school. Menu for next week is Ham and cheese sandwich ,carrot sticks, chips, fruit cup, and milk. For South Elementary-please email Susan at firstname.lastname@example.org. For North Elementary-please email Bethany at email@example.com. For the Jr. High -please email Deb at FlesnerD@pvo.k12.il.us. Please feel free to help pass the word to our PVO families! Thank you.

The 7th & 8th-grade students took advantage of an extra credit opportunity in Mrs. Mathis' language class. Each student had the opportunity to dress up in some way to represent an example of figurative language (idiom, pun, simile, personification, etc.). In these pictures, you'll see everything from the pun "baseball pitcher" to the idiom "chip on his shoulder" and even "It's raining cats and dogs." It's always such a fun day! Mrs. Mathis
We are honored to have Mr. Jeff Mathis as our jr. high Veteran’s Day speaker. Below is Mr. Mathis biography. Please feel free to come November 11 at 2pm to the Jr High School gymnasium. My name is Jeff Mathis and I was born in Tolono, IL. I moved to Ogden in 6th grade and finished the rest of junior high there, so several of the PVO teacher are familiar faces for me. I graduated from St Joseph-Ogden High School in 2002. Shortly after graduating, I enlisted in the Army and completed basic and advanced training at Ft. Jackson in South Carolina. I was stationed at Ft Riley, KS for the duration of my enlistment with the exception of my 13 month deployment to Iraq. After getting out of the Army in December of 2006, I moved back to the area to further my education. In 2007, I married Mrs Mathis. In 2011, I received my bachelors degree from ISU in Exercise Science followed by my Masters degree in 2013. Along the way, we had 2 wonderful children. I am a member of the Local 149 Plumbers and Pipefitters and enjoy working with my hands to build anything from small projects to 24 story buildings. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my kids outdoors and playing sports
We have a Veteran for our PVO jr high program. Mr Jeff Mathis will be speaking at the Jr high school at 2 pm on November 11. Please feel free to come to the Veterans program at the Jr high.

Emily long jumps 14'-8", but does not make the finals. Kendra runs 1600 at 2:30 Emily 100 prelims at 4:50 Visit iesa.org for results.
Preliminary results are 82,000' altitude. We will pull data when we get back to school.
Communication is back. Shorter than expected, so maybe it didn't get as high? Data recorder will tell the story.
Communication will resume after balloon burst and it begins falling back to Earth. This should occur in about 1 hour.
We have lost communication with the balloon. Not to worry, it is due to altitude exceeding GPS satellite range.
We launched at 9:35 am. The students working on the project have designed the payload to carry two cameras, a GPS device, and a data-logger, which will record altitude, temperature, pressure, and GPS coordinates of travel. You can follow the path by watching updates to our SPOT page here: https://share.findmespot.com/shared/faces/viewspots.jsp?glId=1VPZk6qyEqqOUSFNJmSMJJmmuoLOAXtqe Password is: Mustangs1

I am so happy to announce our new 5th grade teacher (Ms. Emily Griswell) for 2018-19. My name is Emily Griswell and I am very excited to introduce myself as the new fifth grade teacher at PVO South. I grew up in St. Joseph and still live in the area. I graduated from Eastern Illinois University in December of 2016 with my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I am currently working on completing my Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Eastern Illinois University (estimated completion is May 2019). After student teaching (in fourth grade with Mrs. Stewart at PVO South!!), I taught fourth grade for a semester at St. Joseph Grade School. I have been a graduate assistant for the past year at EIU while working on my Master’s, and I can’t wait to get back into a classroom full time. I love the upper elementary level as the kids are sweet and sassy at the same time. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, hiking, watching movies, and crafting (pallet projects are my favorite hobby right now). I am so incredibly excited to be back at PVO South and connect with past and future students and families.

It's not a joke. When a person, regardless of age, makes a threat to harm students or faculty at a school, it may seem to some like a youthful prank, but to the Illinois law enforcement community - State's Attorneys, Sheriffs and Chiefs of Police - it is no laughing matter. Threatening violence at a school, personally or through social media, is a crime that is punishable by years in prison. The havoc and fear created when someone threatens a school community is real, no matter the intentions of the person who communicates that threat. All threats are taken seriously, and investigating them diverts precious resources. The law enforcement community stands united in making our schools safe. In Illinois that means that threats of violence are no joke and those that make them will be investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
