PVMS Tiger News 

February 9, 2021

BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR……what do snowmen eat for lunch? Icebergers…… lol!  Talking about snowmen, it was so cold this morning and the temperature will continue to drop throughout the week. Please be sure the kids have jackets and are dropped off as close to 9:45 am as possible. We are unable to allow kids in the building until 9:45 am because we do not have supervision until that time. 

COVID Update: COVID-19 communication for PVMS will now be facilitated by Korri Stauffer. Please reach out to her with questions, concerns, or health updates.

Student Celebrations

We are so happy to celebrate our Tigers from Q1 and Q2 who received 3.5-4.0 GPAs. We wish we could celebrate in person, but wanted to recognize all of the hard work they have done! Keep it up!  Parents, thank you for your continued support of our students this year! Certificates of recognition will be sent home with our hybrid learners and mailed home to our virtual learners.

Parent Teacher Conferences

Spring conference will take place on Monday, March 8 and they will be completely virtual. Please be on the lookout from your student’s teachers with information about how to sign up for a video conference with them.



Make-A-Wish! 

February is a fun month at PVMS!  Last week began our annual (6th year) Make-A-Wish event.  In the last five years, PVMS has raised $21,564!!  We are one of the top contributors in the state out of middle school participation and we have already raised nearly $2,000 in just the last week! Most importantly, we have increased awareness about this important cause and how generosity and kindness can have a huge impact for all involved.  

Our Wish Kid this year is Parker!  He is 14 years old and is from Ft. Collins.  Parker has Loeys-Dietz Syndrome. He believes young people can make a difference in this world by being truthful. kind and not judging others by how they look.  Because of covid and travel restrictions, Parker will receive one of these wishes: to meet his favorite youtuber, spend a week in the Carolinas, play a round of golf with his favorite pro golfer, or take a cruise in the Bahamas. 

Students will be learning about the Make-A-Wish foundation and our Wish Kid, Parker, in their advisory class.

We will have a spirit week this week (February 9th-12th)  We will be dressing up in Parker's favorite things.  

Tuesday/Wednesday: Dress up in Harry Potter or Star Wars 

Thursday/Friday: Wear as much PURPLE as possible.

 

Additionally, we are having a grade-level fundraising competition.  Feel free to help your student's grade WIN.  Click on the grade level fundraising page to make a donation:

8th Grade: http://site.wish.org/goto/PVMS8

7th Grade:  http://site.wish.org/goto/PVMS7

6th Grade: http://site.wish.org/goto/PVMS6

We think this is a perfect opportunity to ground ourselves in the strength of generosity and kindness.  If students are unable to donate, we are  encouraging them to give "acts of kindness" to their community and family.  Acts of kindness are just as valuable, if not more, than any monetary contribution.  Thanks for your support!!



CMAS Testing

It's hard to believe, but CMAS testing will be upon us soon. Testing is scheduled to occur from April 12th to 20th. These annual state assessments measure a student's proficiency related to state English Language Arts, math, and science standards. These assessments provide us with invaluable data to help us plan to meet the needs of our students. This data is even more important than ever for us considering all the changes and interruptions that have occurred in the last year - we are excited to see where all of our students are so that we can plan accordingly for their learning in the upcoming school year. Schedules for testing will be shared in March. 

Virtual Students & CMAS -  While we offer a fully virtual option for day-to-day learning, the state requires that CMAS be completed within the school building. As with our in-person learners, student safety is our #1 priority and we are confident that we will be able to provide a safe environment for our virtual students to test at PVMS. Virtual students will be assigned to specific testing groups only made up of other virtual students, are separate from in-person learners/teachers and will follow all state guidelines for safety including distancing, capacity, and masking. Additionally, they will arrive at a different time and enter the building through separate doors. If you have a virtual PVMS student and you have not already, please complete this survey to help us gather information. We successfully completed ACCESS testing yesterday in-person for our virtual students and everything went very well! 

Questions regarding state assessments should be directed to Assistant Principal and School Assessment Coordinator Grace Bird at gbird@sd27j.net.
