Palos Verdes Schools News


Last week, the Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District posted their proposed school calendar for 2010-2011 (click here to view).  It’s about time!  As a parent, it is difficult to plan vacations, appointments, etc. without knowing when our children will be in or out of school.  On this proposed schedule, school will start Tuesday, August 31, 2010 (the week before Labor Day) and the school year will be shortened by 4 or 5 days due to a budget shortfall.  New to the school calendar is a week’s vacation beginning February 21st.

Palos Verdes homes owners will be pleased to know that Palos Verdes schools have received a grant for Language Instruction, according to a recent PVPUSD publication.   The school district will receive $300,000 a year for the next five years “to promote the instruction of Mandarin Chinese.”  Currently all students at Lunada Bay and Point Vicente Elementary Schools have Chinese language instruction that starts at Kindergarten and Monte Malaga and Cornerstone Elementary Schools will be added in the future.  Currently our two high schools and Palos Verdes Intermediate offer Chinese language instruction as an elective and those courses will be expanded to include the other two intermediate schools.  Our great schools contribute to our children’s development and to our strong Palos Verdes home values!
