What We Do

We do a lot of great stuff throughout the year, in support of the school’s goals and our JVF families. We organize initiatives ranging from in-school assemblies to family fun nights to fundraisers and book fairs. In addition, we provide support for teachers’ classroom requests, including A/V equipment, books, and other supplemental materials. Due to COVID-19, our programming this year is all virtual — but just as engaging!

Some of our recent flagship initiatives include:

  • School Beautification: Creating a hallway mural with local artist Joe Pimentel and refreshing the playground pavement with colorful painted games and paths

  • Milestone Events: Welcoming new JVF families and celebrating those moving up to middle school

  • Teacher Appreciation: Organizing an annual teacher appreciation lunch

  • Family Fun Nights: Hosting activities for the whole family and Bingo at the Brewery in the spring

  • Gardening Programs: Running taste tests with Land to Learn

  • School Spirit: Building a JVF parade float for Spirit of Beacon Day, promoting Spirit Weeks, and running spirit wear fundraisers

  • Student Support: Providing school supplies and funding support for field trips and other activities

  • Fundraisers and Community Drives: Raising money to help the school and organizing pantry and coat drives to help those in need

Join the Fun!

Every member of the JVF community — across families and staff — is automatically a member of the PTSO. Everyone is welcome to attend meetings, vote, suggest ideas, and pitch in with their talents and time! It’s fun and free to get involved — and our success depends on your help!

Maybe you’re a skilled designer or writer, or awesome at planning events. Maybe you’re an arts and crafts maven, or a digital guru. Or maybe you just like being involved and helping out in general. Whatever unique talents and interests you have, we’d love for you to join the fun of the PTSO!

 

Here are the top 3 reasons to get involved:

  • Meet other awesome families in the JVF community
