Childcare will be provided, but your child must meet the following criteria:
- Child Care can only be provided for school-aged children enrolled in PVSD schools.
- We cannot accommodate children younger than TK including infants, toddlers, etc.
- To ensure safety, sign-ups for parents needing Child Care must be taken in your school office prior to BTS night.
Be the Joy – Our new program is off to a good start. We had a number of students come down to share what they did to be the reason to make someone smile. I placed their postcards that detail their acts of kindness in my office. I hope to fill the office with these postcards.
