Boys Basketball Starts Tonight! 

Tonight we will be hosting the first boy’s basketball game of the season at 5:00pm. Please remember that all spectators are required to be masked at all times during indoor sporting events. Students are required to pay $2 to attend basketball games. Students accompanied by parents are free! 



Parent Survey

Please help us make PVMS the best learning environment possible for your students by completing this quick parent survey.  As of today, we have 359 surveys completed. This means we need 297 more to reach our goal of 100% completion. Friday is the last day to have your voice heard please submit your surveys.

We are specifically monitoring our progress on the two following questions:

I feel welcome at the school, I am listened to and my needs are important.
I feel like an important member of my student’s education. 


Chromebooks

A reminder that students are responsible for their Chromebooks at all times! Students should not leave Chromebooks outside at recess or in the cafeteria unattended. The replacement fee for a lost Chromebook is $260! 



8th Grade Career Expo

8th grade families it is that time of year again for the annual Adams County Career Expo.  All 8th grade students in Adams County have the opportunity to attend this event hosted by the Adams County Education Consortium.  This year, the event will be held virtually to follow COVID 19 protocols.  On November 17th, our 8th grade students will meet with career professionals in a virtual setting where they will have the opportunity to ask questions and hear about their job and daily life.  To prepare for this event, students will be completing lessons in advisory by Junior Achievement on creating a brand, high growth careers, career clusters, interviewing skills, professionalism etc.  Students who do an exemplary job of demonstrating professionalism on the day of the expo will be awarded prizes based on the number of businesses that recognize them as a "top student,"  Last year, one of our 8th grade students received the highest award at the expo of being the top student out of all of the 8th graders in  Adams County.  We also had the most students recognized by businesses out of all the schools in Adams County.  We hope our students will make us proud again this year at the Expo! 




Submit Photos for the Yearbook!  

Do you have great photos from the 21-22 school year!?! Please share with our yearbook advisor Catherine Davies at cdavies@sd27j.net



Masks

A reminder that students are responsible for coming to school with their own masks. We do not have the supply to keep this up. We will begin calling home for students that arrive at school without a mask or that we are having to provide masks to frequently. 



Please also remind your student that their mask must cover both their mouth AND nose. We have many students wearing them under their nose despite repeated reminders. Please expect a phone call home if this behavior continues. If students are habitually attending school without a mask or continue to receive reminders about proper mask usage, a switch to the 27 J online school will be recommended. 



COVID Reminders

Exposure: Families can follow COVID cases and quarantines on our district dashboard. The PVMS exposure list can be found here. Please review this list regularly to see if there was an exposure in one of your student’s classes. 



Absences & Classwork: If your student is absent due to an exposure or illness, they are still responsible for their school work. All assignments will be available asynchronously in Google Classroom. If your student has a documented/reported illness, they will be given additional time to make up missed work. If your student is quarantined as precaution, they will not be given extra days and are required to keep up with the classwork asynchronously. Teachers are available via email for support and students can expect responses from them within 24 hours. 



Health Screening: Families play an essential role in keeping PVMS safe and healthy. If your Tiger has signs/symptoms of illness, has received a COVID-19 test and is awaiting results, or has had a positive COVID-19 test in the last 14 days you should fill out this form. Each form is school specific.  Please keep your child home until you have heard from your school via email or phone call.
