We believe making mistakes provides an opportunity to learn.
We believe our students will develop citizenship, responsibility, knowledge, self-worth, and strong leadership skills.
We believe in providing opportunities for our students to regularly reflect upon their growth and goals.

If you are interested in volunteering at PVE, you must:
- Fill out the attached paperwork & return it to the front office
- Training on Thursday, September 18, 8:15 at PVE
- Enjoy yourself as a much appreciated volunteer at our wonderful school
On Fridays our students have the opportunity to show their Piñon pride by wearing school colors or Piñon spirit wear. Our school colors are teal, black, and silver. If you're new to PVE, spirit wear can always be purchased from our PTO. Order forms are available at our front desk. And we do have new dri-fit options and tie dye Piñon t-shirts available in blue or pink. When your child's class displays the most school spirit at school on Spirit Day Fridays, they will get to host one of our stuffed mascots, Wolfie, Valley, or Spirit, in their classroom for the upcoming week of school. See a PTO representative to hear all about the variety of spirit wear we have available. Please help us by helping your child come to school prepared for spirit days! A spirit wear table will be set up on Back to School Night .... Thank you!
