On Saturday, October 20, 9am, the Montvale Policemen's Benefit Association (PBA) will host their annual 5K run, with this year's proceeds benefiting the "Milestones @ PVR" program.

Milestones @ PVR is a special program for adult students, ages 18-21, with multiple intellectual and moderate learning and language disabilities. The program is designed to assist students with disabilities to develop the skills necessary for independent living. Milestones @ PVR provides transition-focused services within a community environment based on each student’s needs and goals. Students build psychological, problem solving, critical thinking, personal and interpersonal skills, and vocational readiness.

The Pascack Valley Regional High School District is incredibly grateful to the Montvale PBA for their continued dedication and generosity to our community, and especially for their willingness to donate the proceeds to our special program.

We encourage everyone to visit the Montvale PBA website for race details and registration information.

We are happy to share that the Harrington Park School District and the Wyckoff Township Public Schools join the Pascack Valley Regional High School District as members of the Digital Promise League of Innovative Schools.

There are only 102 school districts from across the nation in the League.  Bergen County having three disrict members of this group is highly unusual and demonstrates Bergen County's commitment to improving educational outcomes for students.

In an attempt to find a balance of awareness of progress, undistracted learning, and student wellness, we are implementing a trial period where the gradebook will be closed during the school day.
