As we begin our school year with learning from home, PVP Council of PTAs hopes to help you through these times with helpful resources for you, your students and your families. We are all now teachers, with parents supporting student learning at home in new ways and teachers finding new and innovative ways to teach. We must all now manage working, teaching, parenting from home, keeping our families safe and physically and mentally healthy. Here are some resources to help all of us find our way this school year.
PVP Council of PTAs is proud to partner with the Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District to help families navigate health and wellness in our uncertain times. Click here to visit the PVPUSD Wellness page
