Student Holiday. Please be aware that an interim was sent home with each student on Wednesday,
Wednesday, March 2. Spring Break is April 18-24. Classes resume on Monday, April 25th. On Tuesday,
March 1st, Park View hosted our annual Patriot’s Achievement Toward Success (PATS) Night. We had
almost 500 people attend this event. I want to thank Jeff Adam, Mrs. Potter and her students, Nancy
Rolfe, Diane Edwards, Greg Mitchell, Tanuel Fismer, Maryann Skrzycki, Jonas Minino, Cynthia Ross, and
Beth Walker for organizing and working with this event. A special thanks goes to the students in Mrs.
Hollowell’s and Mrs. Hochstein’s multimedia class for producing such an inspiring video. Finally, thank
you to our business partners at Costco, Joe’s Pizzeria, Chick-fil-A, McDonalds, Dunkin Donuts, Glory
Days, Cheesecake Factory, and Buffalo Wing Factory for their generous donations and assistance with
this event.
On Tuesday, March 29, 2011 there is going to be a Park View Parent Cluster Meeting at 6:30 p.m. at
Sterling Middle School. The purpose of this meeting is to hear from parents about how we can work
together to support our schools and our community. All parents from every school in our cluster have
been invited. I hope you will take this opportunity and attend this cluster event.
I want to give special congratulations to senior Anson Rosenthal on being named a National Merit
Finalist. Also, special congratulations go to Natalie Jefferson, Jason Miller and Rebecca Nagley for playing at Carnegie Hall with Flutopia.
Congratulations to the Park View High School students who successfully auditioned into All District
Band: Natalie Jefferson, Jasmeen Pantleay, Debbie Mellon, Suhaib Khan, Jason Miller, Rebecca Nagley,
Emily Nykorchuk, Daniel Shafer, Emily Phillips, Kristin Ward, Nick Love, Kyle Snoich, Patrick Fisher, and
Lyons Sanchezconcha. I would also like to congratulate the following choral students who auditioned
into All District Chorus: Lexi Holz, Uyen Tran, Rebecca Nagley, Sarah Reinhold, Robin Heironimus, Tazh
Jimenez, Patricia Nagley, Christian Sandidge, Rachel Stivers, Zach Amos, Suhaib Khan, Ngyen Ngyen,

Our guidance department is in the process of completing the first phase of the course selection process for the 2010-1011 school year. We have hosted parent information nights for rising 9th graders and
returning upperclassmen. The week of May 9, we will mail home a copy of your student’s preliminary
course selections. We ask that you review what your student has selected and contact the counselor if
you have any questions or concerns. Please remember that all course selections must be finalized by
Thursday, June 30, 2011.
2011 No changes in course selection will be made after this date.
As we move into late March, early April and warmer weather, I want to remind all parents and students about the dress requirements for school. Students must think about getting dressed for school
as if they were getting dressed for work as their work is getting an education. Students must come to
school dressed to learn. I also want to remind students about getting to school and class on time and
being at school every day. This is a continuing issue. Just as we are expected to be at work on time,
students are expected to be at school and class on time. Any assistance you can give us would be appreciated.
March 28- April 1 is National Assistant Principals Week. I want to thank Ms. Piccolomini, Mr. Adam
and Mr. Gabriel for their tireless work and dedication to our students and school community. April 27
is Administrative Professional (Secretaries) Day. Thanks to all of our PVHS secretaries for all that they
do to support our students, teachers and parents. Our school could not function without these individuals and I want to offer a special thank you for their hard work and dedication. It is important to remember that our volunteers and secretaries play an important roll
Finally, for those of you making summer plans. Registration for Summer School will end of June 22
and the first day of Summer School will be Monday, September 27. Please remember school will begin
BEFORE Labor Day. As you begin to make summer plans, please note that the first day of school is August 29, 2011.

SAT exam dates are May 7th (held at Briar Woods High School) and June 4th (held at Park View High School. The
deadline for registering for the May test is April 8th and the deadline for the June test is May 6th. Juniors should plan
to take at least one SAT test before entering 12th grade. Since PROM is June 3rd, Juniors may want to consider signing up for the May 7th SAT. Visit for exam day pointers and free practice tests. We recommend that if you know of any colleges that you are definitely applying to that you report your scores the day you take
your test (reporting your scores this way is free). If you are on free/reduced lunch, see Ms. Hatcher in the career center for a SAT fee waiver, which may help you qualify for college application fee waivers next fall and save you a lot of
money. Also, make sure that you try to visit colleges this summer that you might be interested in applying to.

A Successful JobJob-forfor-a-Day Program
The Loudoun County School-Business Partnership sponsored the Job-for-a-Day Program for
high school juniors on March 2 and March 16, 2011.
Students who participated in the program spent one day with a person in the community who
is involved in a career in which the student is interested. The goals were to allow students to
explore a field in which they have an interest or aptitude. The program also strengthened
students’ awareness of business, industry, and business enterprises
within the community and heightened students’ decision-making processes related to life skills and
career choices. Students had hands-on experiences with people, places, and things not always available in the school environment.
This year, 28 Park View Juniors participated in the program and visited locations such as a Veterinary
Hospital, dog groomers, healthcare (included nursing, allopathic physician, medical tech lab,) an architect, Loudoun county sheriff’s office for law enforcement and criminal justice, AOL for software
engineer, National Weather Service, Dulles Airport with Southwest Airlines, an accountant, the Hair
Port Salon & Day Spa and also a Forensic Science lab.

Dear Parent/Guardian of Rising Ninth, Tenth, and Eleventh Grade Student(s):
Attention Parents!
The State of Virginia requires that all students entering middle school and ninth, tenth and eleventh grades must
have a diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (Tdap) vaccine booster unless the student received a tetanus-containing
vaccine within the previous five years before the start of the 2011-2012 school year. Since tetanus is part of the
Tdap, it is recommended that the Tdap vaccine booster not be given closer than five years after the last tetanus
The primary purpose of this requirement is to add protection for pertussis (whooping cough). Children are typically vaccinated against diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus (DPT) as babies. The last diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus (DPT) vaccine is given to children between the ages of four and six. Five to ten years after the last immunization is given, the protection against pertussis (whooping cough) begins to wear off. This vaccine is incorporated into the vaccine that is given for diphtheria and tetanus. The vaccine is known as Tdap, Adacel, or Boostrix. Two different Tdap vaccines booster for pertussis are available for use in children and adults ten to sixtyfour years old. Adacel is recommended for children and adults ages eleven to sixty-four. Boostrix is recommended for children ages ten to eighteen.
Please review your child’s immunization record. The tetanus immunization may be listed as T, Td, Dtap, Tdap,
Adacel, or Boostrix. If your child’s last tetanus immunization was before August 29, 2006, please have the Tdap
vaccine booster immunization administered before the start of the 2011-2012 school year. If your physician
chooses to use Adacel and your child will not be eleven before August 29, 2011, you must submit a note from
your child’s physician stating that your child has a medical exemption because the physician will be administering Adacel when your child is eleven years of age.
Immunizations may be obtained from your physician, military clinics, or the Loudoun County Health Department.
The Loudoun County Health Department will provide the immunizations that are required for school attendance
at no cost. The Health Department is located in the Shenandoah Building at 102 Heritage Way, N.E., Suite 100,
Leesburg, (phone number 703-777-0236). Immunizations are administered by appointment. If you choose to
go to the Health Department for this immunization, you must bring a current immunization record.
For rising sixth graders, documentation of the Tdap vaccine booster, any vaccine containing tetanus given after
August 29, 2006, or a medical exemption if your child will not be eleven by August 29, 2011, should be given to
the nurse or health clinic assistant at your child’s elementary school this school year. If your child will not receive the Tdap vaccine booster before the end of this school year, documentation should be given to the middle
school or high school this summer. Your child will not be allowed to start school without this immunization, documentation of a tetanus-containing vaccine within the previous five years of the beginning of
the 2011-2012 school year, or a medical exemption. A list of students who require this immunization
will be provided to each middle school at the end of this school year. There will be no grace period for
your child to begin middle school on August 29 without this vaccine.
All new seventh, eighth, ninth, tenth, and eleventh grade students will be required to have documentation of a
Tdap vaccine booster unless the student has received a tetanus-containing vaccine within the previous five
years prior to the start of school year 2011-2012. Students must have documentation of this immunization in
order to begin school on August 29, 2011. There will be no grace period for your child to begin school on
August 29 without this vaccine.
If you have questions, please contact your child’s physician or the local health department.
Thank you for your assistance.

Estimado Padre/Guardián del Estudiante del Noveno, Decimo y Grado Once:
El Estado de Virginia requiere que todos los estudiantes entrando a la escuela intermedia y noveno, décimo y grado
once deben tener un refuerzo de la vacuna de difteria, tétano y pertussis (Tdap) a menos que hayan recibido una
vacuna que contenga tétano con pertussis dentro de los cinco años antes de empezar el año escolar 2011-2012.
Como el tétano es parte del Tdap, se recomienda que el refuerzo de la vacuna del Tdap no se aplique cerca de los
cinco años después de la última inmunización de tétano.
Por favor revise el registro de inmunización de su hijo/a. La vacuna del tétano puede ser listada como T, Td, Dtap,
Tdap, Adacel o Boostrix. Si la ultima vacuna de su hijo/a fue antes del 29 de agosto del 2006, por favor haga que se
le administre la vacuna del Tdap antes de empezar el año escolar 2011-2012.
Si su médico elije usar Adacel y su hijo/a no tiene once años antes del 29 de agosto del 2011, usted tiene que traer
una nota del médico explicando que la vacuna de Adacel será administrada cuando su hijo/a cumpla los once años.
Las vacunas se pueden obtener por medio de su doctor, las clínicas militares o el Departamento de Salud del Condado de Loudoun. El Departamento de Salud del Condado de Loudoun provee las inmunizaciones que se requieren
para asistir a la escuela sin ningún costo. El Departamento de Salud está localizado en el edificio Shenandoah en la
102 Heritage Way, N.E., Suite 100, en Leesburg, (teléfono 703-777-0236). Para obtener estas vacunas necesitan
hacer una cita. Si usted decide ir al Departamento de Salud, usted tiene que llevar el último registro de vacunas.
Para todo estudiante entrando al sexto grado, la documentación de la vacuna Tdap o cualquier vacuna que contenga
tétano dada después del 29 de agosto del 2011, o la nota del doctor explicando que su hijo/a no cumplirá once
años para el 29 de agosto del 2011, debe ser entregada a la enfermera o asistenta de enfermería de la escuela elementaria de su hijo/a este año escolar. Si su hijo/a no recibe la vacuna del Tdap antes que termine este año escolar,
la documentación puede ser llevada a la escuela intermedia o media este verano. A su hijo/a no se le permitirá empezar la escuela sin esta vacuna, documentación de la vacuna que contenga tétano con fecha no más de cinco
años antes de empezar el año escolar 20112011-2012 o una nota del médico. Una lista de los estudiantes que necesitan
esta vacuna será dada a cada escuela intermedia al final de este año escolar. No hay ningún periodo de plazo para
que su hijo/a pueda empezar la escuela el 29 de agosto sino tiene esta vacuna.
Attention Parents!
El propósito principal de este nuevo requerimiento es añadir protección para la pertussis (tos ferina).
Los niños típicamente son vacunados contra la difteria, pertussis y tétano (DPT) cuando son bebes.
La última vacuna de difteria, pertussis y tétano (DPT) se les da a los niños entre las edades de cuatro y seis años.
Después de cinco a diez años de la última inmunización aplicada, la protección contra la pertussis (tos ferina) empieza a no tener el mismo efecto. Esta vacuna es incorporada en la vacuna de la difteria y tétano. Esta vacuna es conocida como Tdap, Adacel o Boostrix. Dos vacunas diferentes del Tdap para la tos ferina son disponibles para el uso en
niños y adultos de diez a sesenta y cuatro años de edad. Adacel es recomendado para niños y adultos de once a sesenta y cuatro años de edad. Boostrix es recomendado para niños de diez a dieciocho años de edad.
Todo estudiante nuevo en el séptimo, octavo, noveno, décimo y grado once necesitarán tener la documentación del
refuerzo de la vacuna del Tdap a no ser que el estudiante haya recibido la vacuna conteniendo la del tétano dentro
de los cinco años antes de empezar el año escolar 2011-2012. Los estudiantes deben tener el registro de las vacunas al día para poder empezar la escuela el 29 de agosto del 2011. No se permitirá a su hijo/hija empezar la escuela
el 29 de agosto sin estas vacunas.
Si usted tiene alguna pregunta, por favor llamar al médico de su hijo/a o al departamento local de salud.
Gracias por su asistencia.

Library Media Center News
Library Media Center News
In the February-March edition of “Library Media Center
News” we told you about events in the library like Teen Tech
Week. Well, “Mix & Mash @ your PVHS library” during Teen
Tech Week was a smashing success! We celebrated with
custom-made “Trailers and Trivia” videos that were shown
in the library each morning before school. Made in collaboration with Potomac Falls High School library, these videos
featured trailers from technology-related movies like The
Social Network, Ironman, The Net, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to
the Galaxy, and Tron followed by trivia about aspects of
technology, such as internet safety and gaming facts. In the
front of the library, a five-foot library-made robot stood sentry over books about technology, technology-related movie
posters, and technology trivia posters. Bookmarks were
made that featured the Teen Tech Week robot and Social
Networking tips. Our display case held technologies of the
past, such as a manual typewriter, wooden radio, and a
35mm film camera with detachable flashbulb. Students got
a kick out of seeing what was once considered state-of-theart, which they now consider “old” and “retro”. Thanks to all
those PVHS staff members who allowed their personal belongings and mementos to go on display.
On April 1st, wish our Battle of the Books team luck as they
take on Broad Run High School, Dominion High School, and
Potomac Falls High School in the Eastern Loudoun County
Semi-Final Battle of the Books competition. Groups of five
students at a time will take to the stage at Dominion High
School to answer questions about certain books. Each
team member has read at least five books and has become
an expert on those books. This year’s book selection included The Brothers Torres, Chains, The Immortal Life of
Henrietta Lacks, The Last Thing I Remember, Leviathan,
The Looking Glass Wars, The Man Who Loved Books Too
Much, Right Behind You, The Secret Story of Sonia Rodriguez, and Streams of Babel. Best wishes to the team as
they put a year’s worth of reading to the test.
Another exciting event coming up in the library is National
Library Week, which is April 10th to 16th. The National Library Week theme this year is “Create your own story @ your
PVHS library”. In order to celebrate, Battle of the Books
Book Club members and PVHS Library League helpers will
be painting the spirit rock outside Park View. The rock art
will feature a mobile, blue skies, and birds to match the
National Library Association’s official National Library Week
logo for 2011. The PVHS library will be giving away themed
bookmarks and will be festively decorated to celebrate.
Interestingly, the entire month of April is School Library
As a special treat during National Library Week, teen lit author Chris Crutcher will visit our school. Mr. Crutcher is an
award-winning author who has written such books as Whale
Talk, Athletic Shorts, and Staying Fat for Sarah Byrnes. As
part of Loudoun County Public Library’s “it’s all write” short
story contest, Mr. Crutcher is visiting the area and will stop
Page 8
by Park View on Monday April 11th. Students will gather in
the back of the library to hear Mr. Crutcher speak about his
books and what it is like to be an author.
You may contact the librarians with any comments or questions by phone (571-434-4500) or email
([email protected], [email protected]). Or, stop
by to see us! As Marilyn Johnson says in her book This
Book Is Overdue! How Librarians and Cybrarians Can Save
Us All, “In tough times, a librarian is a terrible thing to
waste.” We strive to help PVHS students and staff daily in
ways big and small and would love to help parents as well.
We hope to hear from you soon.

Parent Participation to Be Focus of Next MSAAC Executive Meeting
Newly elected MSAAC Vice President, Rhonda Bady Hill, has established a goal to visit every school in Loudoun
County, if necessary, to ensure that every school is represented by a parent delegate and alternate on MSAAC. At
MSAAC’s February 2011 meeting, only 18 of 77 LCPS schools were represented by parent delegates. In many
cases, entire school clusters are not represented.
Please join us at our next Executive Committee meeting if you would like to help in our outreach efforts to increase
parent involvement and/or contact Rhonda at [email protected].
