Many thanks to the Perkiomen Valley Foundation for giving all of our PVHS students an opportunity to meet and hear from Jullien Gordon during our annual Career Fair in November 2013.  Mr. Gordon is a motivational speaker, author and performance coach whose company has worked with Fortune 100 companies, start-ups, non-profits and universities to recruit talent and increase productivity.  His speeches have been shared via TED Talks and focus on career advancement, finding purpose, goal achievement and closing the college-to-career gap.  By partnering with the Foundation, we were able to provide an opportunity that would otherwise not have existed for 1,800 students.  The feedback that we received from our students was overwhelmingly positive.  Thank you!

On behalf of everyone at Skippack Elementary – thank you! The laptop cart is an outstanding addition to our technology hardware and takes us a step closer to providing each student with an opportunity to utilize technology for learning. We appreciate the support of the Foundation.

I just wanted to thank you all for your help on the design, support and installation of my classroom. Going into the school year, I can honestly say I have a tremendous amount of excitement to show my students their new classroom.

I wanted to extend a huge thank you for the Foundation grant that supported the expansion of our MLK Day of Service event. We estimate that close to 500 students participated. The Foundation grant allowed us to include middle school students who participated in activities like putting hygiene kits together for migrant workers, making knit hats for those in need, and making fleece blankets for One House at a Time. The 80 volunteer spots we had open for middle schoolers filled up right away, so it is obvious that they appreciated having the opportunity to join in on this Day of Service.
