PVIS PTSA MISSION & GOALS

The PVIS PTSA works with local, state and national efforts to support students at numerous levels.  Our main goal is to advocate for the education, health, safety and well-being of all children.  Ways in which we accomplish this goal is to:

  • To promote the welfare of children and youth in home, school, places of worship, and throughout the community
  • To raise the standards of home life
  • To advocate for laws that further the education, physical and mental health, welfare, and safety of children and youth
  • To promote the collaboration and engagement of families and educators in the education of children and youth
  • To engage the public in united efforts to secure the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and social well-being of all children and youth
  • To advocate for fiscal responsibility regarding public tax dollars in public education funding.
