Happy Tuesday PVMS Families & Community! 

Make-a-Wish Month - Still Time to Donate! 

We are in the midst of our annual (7th year) Make-A-Wish event.  In the last six years, PVMS has raised $25,203 for Make-a-Wish Colorado!!  We are one of the top contributors in the state out of middle school participation.  Most importantly, we have increased awareness about this important cause and how generosity and kindness can have a huge impact for all involved.  

There is still time to help us raise money. We have our online fundraising pages available for you to make a donation and share with your family.  There is a 6th, 7th, and 8th grade page, as we are having a grade level competition where students can earn a movie day with their pod if they reach $500.

High School Transition

8th grade families, it is time to start thinking about the transition to high school!  Almost all families who attend PVMS will roll up to Prairie View High School and Riverdale Ridge High School. Below is the transition plan for both schools.  If your student is planning to attend a district high school that is not their boundary school, you will need to complete the open enrollment process.

2022-23 Immunization Requirements

It’s hard to believe but we are already underway prepping for the 22-23 school year. Getting vaccinated is an important part of a student’s school readiness and keeps children from catching and spreading diseases that can make them sick and potentially disrupt in-person learning. See below for guidance from the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment on required school immunizations.

Immunization Guidance - English

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 & Replacement Cost

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! 

All PVMS Students should have a working Chromebook by the end of this week. If you student does not have a CB at that time, please reach out to Assistant Principal Grace Bird at

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! Students needing replacement chargers will be charged $30. 



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.
