Principal Rob Prouty Our number one goal is to foster a love of reading for our students. We use books in many ways at our school including independent reading, read alouds, buddy reading, to build growth mindset, inform about FNMI, to gain ideas for our makerspace and so many more ways. In September 2017 PVPS will be acquiring an extended french and french immersion program for students in grade 4-8.
