Pahrump Valley High School senior Grant Odegard received a Top Ten Student-Athlete of the Year award for the 2019-2020 school year along with nine other athletes throughout Southern Nevada. These awards are presented to the top student-athletes who excel in scholastic achievement, overall sports participation and school and community service accomplishments. PVHS teacher Steve Nygaard provided the following quote to the NIAA, “Grant has the drive, leadership skills and academic ability to succeed in any endeavor he chooses. He illustrates what it truly means to be a student-athlete.” Grant has participated at the Varsity level in Cross Country, Basketball and Track and Field, earning 11 varsity letters during his high school years as an athlete. He plans to attend college before pursuing a career as a commercial pilot. A $1000 scholarship from Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association (NIAA) and One Nevada Credit Union has been awarded to Grant. He will be presented with his scholarship and special commemorative program later this month.

Parents, Guardians, and Community Members, We know you have been asked to fill out several surveys recently, but we would appreciate your attention to one more. This survey is meant to provide the grants department with guidance and data while writing for 20/21 grants, which will be critical for our operations in what is likely to be a challenging budget year. The survey contains 20 topics and asks you to rate each topic's importance to you and your satisfaction with district implementation. A blank response will be counted as not-applicable for you, so you are welcome to leave items blank. Please click here to take the survey: https://bit.ly/NyeGrantSurvey2020
Parent Engagement Survey: https://bit.ly/2AF7u7N Parents & Guardians, This is the same survey that we sent out at the beginning of the year on paper through the schools. Obviously, it was not possible to do the survey the same way at the end of the year. Our grants require that we issue this survey twice per year to get comparative data. Please take a few minutes to fill out the six questions. Thank you, -NCSD Grants & Family Engagement Dept. https://bit.ly/2AF7u7N

Good afternoon Trojan Senior Families, I want to give a few more details for our senior grad events for the class of 2020. Please realize our commitment to social distancing protocols during the COVID-19 Pandemic. This event will give grads the option of coming to the school for a photo opportunity to capture them walking across the graduation stage in their cap & gown with the school’s stadium in the background. We are planning 3 sessions: May 27 from 5 to 9 pm; May 28 from 8 am to 12 pm; May 28 6-8 pm. Graduating seniors will be allowed through only once and can choose the time and date most convenient for them. Each grad will be limited to one vehicle. Only the grad and their parents or guardian will be allowed outside of their vehicle when directed to by a school staff member when they reach the stage. The gate will close a half hour prior to closing on each day to allow use to get all participants through on time. Please recall, we will have our virtual graduation broadcast on May 29 at 8:00 PM on Channel 25. Full details and a map will be posted on our website and on our Trojan Facebook page. Mr. Campnell, PVHS Principal
PVHS is excited to announce a Class of 2020 drive-thru event for our graduates! Please show your Trojan Spirit and decorate your cars. A station will be set-up to pick-up honors sashes. If you need to borrow a cap & gown, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Congrats!

Greetings NCSD Families! I feel the need to inform you that we had a student make a claim that there was a bomb at PVHS. After a thorough investigation by school officials, in conjunction with the Nye County Sheriff’s Office, it was determined that there was never a credible threat to any student or staff at Pahrump Valley High School. The Nye County Sheriff’s Office took extra precaution to ensure the safety of all. Please be assured that student and staff safety is our paramount goal at PVHS and we will investigate any potential threat that may undermine our mission of school safety and academic excellence. Any threats to a school will be reported to and investigated by the Nye County Sheriff's Office. Sincerely, Mr. George Campnell PVHS Principal
An Apology: To all of our NCSD parents and students, We had significant password compromise on our Google and IC student accounts because the passwords were based on student number. Students were using accounts that were not assigned to them. The issue did not involve outside actors. I thought resetting the passwords the day before school started would work as kids can get their passwords the next day from their teachers. Obviously, I was wrong, and I apologize. Several students have been locked out of their accounts but need to finish summer homework, which has caused great frustration. Arrangements will be made for students to have additional time on their summer assignments. Again, I'm sorry. This will not happen in this manner in the future. Sincerely, Robert Williams Director of Technology

Help your child focus on listening well To succeed in school, children need good communication skills. One of them is listening. To build your child's skills, say her name to get her attention. Then look her in the eye and speak quietly; your child will have to listen closely. Model good listening by paying undivided attention when your child speaks to you. Encourage her to continue with statements like, "Tell me more." http://niswc.com/15gDC276091 ------------------------------------------ Ayude a su hijo a concentrarse en escuchar bien Para tener éxito en la escuela, los niños necesitan tener habilidades de comunicación sólidas. Escuchar es una de estas habilidades. Para desarrollar las habilidades de escucha de su hijo, diga su nombre para captar su atención. Luego mírelo a los ojos y use un tono de voz suave. De este modo, él tendrá que escuchar atentamente. Préstele toda su atención cuando él le hable a usted, para mostrarle cómo se escucha atentamente. Y para continuar la conversación, hágale comentarios como, "Cuéntame más sobre eso". http://niswc.com/25gDC276091
Great Success! Thank you to our Pahrump community for supporting Trojan Football at our annual Spaghetti Dinner & Bake Sale: http://bit.ly/2Zy3qgU
