Panama Trip!
Tomorrow, Wednesday, April 20, is your final chance to learn about sending your child on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Panama! RSVP at this link: and see you tomorrow at 5:30! This meeting is virtual, and will cover the costs, fundraising opportunities, and scholarships, as well as all the places we will visit and explore!

Chromebook Check-In
All current 6th and 7th graders are required to turn in their computers over the summer vacation. This will allow us to assess inventory and ensure that all necessary repairs and replacements are completed over the summer break.

Students are expected to turn in their
And chromebooks should be free from stickers, etc.

8th graders will get to keep their chromebooks at the end of the school year. We will be verifying that they are keeping the chromebook that is assigned to them and if an 8th grade chromebook.

Student Pick-Up
Due to supervision and learning needs, we are not able to check students out of the office after 4:10pm. If you have to pick up a student for an appointment, you will need to do so before 4:10 or you will need to wait until dismissal at 4:32pm. We are also seeing some families who are checking their student out early to avoid after-school traffic. While we understand that traffic can be frustrating, students are missing out on hours of important learning every week because of this. Thank you for your understanding and support.

CMAS Testing is well underway and our students have been amazing. We have already hit the 95% completion requirement. We are so proud of the culture we have built that has destigmatized and removed the stress our students feel about assessments like this. As we tell our students, it’s just a tool to help us know what they do know and what they don’t know so that we can be better for them.

Testing did not take place in 2020 due to COVID school closures and testing was reduced in 2021 also due to COVID. We are excited to have returned to a more typical schedule with all students in person so that our data is complete and we can have a well-rounded picture of where students are and what they need.

PVMS currently holds a Performance Rating from the state of Colorado. Not that we are competitive or anything but we are the only middle school in the district with this rating! Go TIGERS!

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
Immunization Guidance - Spanish

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.

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.
