Veterans Day Assembly: We are looking forward to hosting our Annual Veterans Day Assembly on Friday, November 11, at 9:30 AM. As part of our assembly, it is tradition to invite family members of our students and faculty to honor as a part of the annual event. If you are currently serving or have family members who have served (who would like to attend), please let us know by calling our school office staff to RSVP at 563-332-0525 by Thursday, November 10. This will help us in preparing seating for the event.

Work for Pleasant Valley: We are looking for a few good people to join our food service team. Hours are during the school day - so it’s perfect for those who like to be at home with their kids. Look at all the opportunities at PV here.

Iowa Waiver Programs and Health Insurance Premium Program Presentation: Please join the Pleasant Valley Student Services Department and the Department of Human Services for an evening of information on the Iowa Waiver Programs and HIPP (Health Insurance Premium Program). This session will be November 17th at 6:00pm in the PVHS Theatre. The Iowa Waiver is not income based; it is about providing services for your student. Social interactions, respite for parents, and supported community living. Learn more about the presentation here.

Learn about PV’s Scholarship Program: Imagine if there were a scholarship for every PV student. There could be - and you could help make it happen. The Pleasant Valley Educational Foundation is hosting an informal workshop to discuss the scholarship program and the opportunities available to invest in PV’s students.
