Outcomes That Matter Most 

School district 27J has created a tool called the 27J Performance Dashboard. The 27J Performance Dashboard provides information about the health and performance of the 27J school system by taking into consideration the priority attributes for academics as well as climate and culture.

The purpose of the dashboard is to communicate, tune into, and deliver the outcomes that matter. Many of these metrics are in direct alignment with 27J School Board Global Ends. The 27J Dashboard supports continuous improvement towards prioritized goals. To access the 2020-21 Dashboard, click here. 

In order to prepare for the release of this dashboard (and eventually a PVMS dashboard), I have been sharing various data points with you all through recent Tiger memos, so that when our dashboard is released the data will be easier to understand. The dashboard monitors progress on attendance, school culture, behavior, and academics which all align to the goals we are focusing on at PVMS. 


Students recently participated in SPEAK week.  This is a week geared towards suicide prevention, awareness, and knowledge.  We incorporated our Sources of Strength program by focusing on the numerous strengths students have in their lives when stress or problems arise.  Students participated in a letter exchange where they wrote an anonymous letter of encouragement.  They had the opportunity to place their letter in a box and take one for themselves to read and be encouraged.   Another activity involved students tracing their hand and writing a struggle they are currently dealing with.  Along with the struggle, they wrote all of the positive ways they are working on overcoming that struggle.  We created a mural to demonstrate how we all have something we are working through and we are stronger together.  THis is just a small example of the social/emotional learning all students participate in at PVMS.

6th and 7th grade Virtual Student Check-Out

Our 6th and 7th grade virtual students will need to come to PVMS May 26th anytime from 7:30-9:30am and 10:30am-5:00 pm to drop-off their Chromebook, charger, and hot spot. They may also pick-up their certificates and yearbooks. We will have a designated drive-thru area prepared to make this as contactless as possible. More information will be shared from the Tiger Time teachers to your TIGER. 

Continuation Invites: Our continuation invitations should be arriving in the mail this week, they were sent to primary mailing addresses in Infinite Campus.  All students received an invitation regardless of their participation in summer school this year.  We are so excited to celebrate them on the 25th of May. The continuation invitation can be viewed here in case your address is not up to date in IC or you are a secondary household.  Thanks!

WARM Weather Wear:  As the weather gets warmer, our staff likes to take the kids outside for different activities and mask breaks. Please send your students with sunglasses, water bottles, sunscreen or anything else that they may need to keep their eyeballs and skin safe. The last two days of school May 25 and 26th students will be spending a large portion of their time outside. Plan accordingly.
