Redo of the PVMS Tiger News 1/27/22


Tiger Tuesday (well, Thursday...) News

January 25, 2022



Hey Tigers and Families,

We realized that this week's Tiger news was sent out without all of the info. So, we are trying this again....

 

Dutch Brothers Make-A-Wish Fundraiser

Our annual Make-A-Wish Month starts next week. To kick things off, please head to the Dutch Brothers coffee on 104th this Friday, 1/25/22 (TOMORROW!). For every drink sold, $1 goes to Make-A-Wish Colorado and will count toward the PVMS and PVHS fundraiser totals! 

 

Fees

We have many students with outstanding fees. We have sent fee balance notices in the mail to all families. These funds are very important to PVMS and allow us to support learning opportunities for your students. 27J policy also outlines that students may not participate in extracurricular activities, including sports, if their fees are not paid. 

If your student has previously qualified for Free & Reduced Lunch you would have had some reduced or waived fees. Because meals are free for all students this year, many families did not complete this application. This application must be submitted in order to eligible program fees to be waived. Please visit this site to complete the application. 

 

Chromebook Repair Times

With both staffing and Chromebook shortages, we are struggling to keep Chromebooks in kid’s hands. Current repair times from Dell for hardware repairs are about 6-8 weeks. Please talk to your student about taking good care of their CBs to avoid being without them and facing damage or loss charges. Minor damage like missing keys is totally avoidable! 

 

Electronics

A reminder PVMS is not responsible for lost or stolen electronic items (phones, earbuds, gaming systems etc.) Students are not supposed to have these items at school as they are not conducive to the learning environment. We will use our redirect process as well as contact home if electronic devices are confiscated by our staff. Parents and or guardians will be asked to come to PVMS and retrieve the phone/earbuds etc. Please remind your TIGER that they are not to have these items at PVMS.

Since cell phones are prohibited while at school, we ask that you please direct any necessary communication to your students through our main office during school hours. Students caught texting during school hours, even if it is with a parent, will still have their phones confiscated.

Information about this and other student rules at PVMS can be found in our Student Handbook.
