Throughout the year, PVA hosts activities in conjunction with school staff to benefit the students, faculty, parents, and school.
Parent Service and Fundraising Requirements
We believe that parents are the primary educators of their children. As parents work in partnership with OLPH school a sense of community and family is developed. Parent volunteers are invaluable on the OLPH campus. When OLPH parents work side by side a stronger community is built for the children. Through parental example, our students learn the value of service.
Parents are required to volunteer a minimum of 50 hours (25 hours for a single parent family) of service throughout the school year. Twelve hours will be served at the annual fall carnival.
