PVMS Tiger Tuesday (well Friday) News 9/16/22

Happy Friday Tiger Families!

We are so sorry (and when I say "we" I really just mean me, Ms. Bird!) that a Tiger News did not go out on Tuesday! Below are the news and updates that I had intended on sending on Tuesday.

The first Tiger Togetherness Assembly was held today and was so much fun! 8th Graders won the spirit award for showing our core values. Take some time to talk to your student about the assembly and fun they had. We will be holding these assemblies each month to have fun and build community. We will add pictures from the assembly to next Tuedsday's Tiger News.


Chromebooks are 27J property in the care of students. Chromebooks, cases, and chargers have all been labeled with students' names. If a student has misplaced their Chromebook or suspect it was taken, they need to report it to their advisory teacher as soon as possible. Cases must stay on Chromebooks at all times.

Students that intentionally damage their Chromebooks will be responsible for the cost of the replacement or repairs:

Replacement Chromebook - $325
Screen Replacement/Repair - $50
Keyboard Replacement/Repair - $40
Also….Please DO NOT put stickers on chromebooks!

Picture Retakes

Picture retake day for students that were absent on the original day or would like to retake their picture will be on Thursday, October 6th. 


Class Pictures

On Wednesday, September 28th each grade-level will have a group picture taken together in the gym. Order forms from Lifetouch will be given to students soon if they would like a copy of this picture. 

Student Pick-Up - ID’S ARE REQUIRED! 

A very important reminder that identification is REQUIRED in order to pick up a student from school. This is an essential safety protocol to ensure that your students are only released to a parent/guardian or approved contact whose identity we are able to verify. Please be kind and respectful to our front office team that upholds this important policy.

Upcoming Field Trip Opportunities for 8th grade

Mark your calendars!  All 8th grade students will be attending Finance Park this year in October.  The upstairs pod will attend on October 5th and the downstairs pod will attend on October 6th.  We will need 10 parent volunteers per day for this trip and would love your involvement!  Email if you are interested in volunteering.  8th grade will also be attending the Adams County Career Expo on November 10th.  Both of these trips will help to promote the career readiness learning of our 8th grade students.  More details to come!


If you are cleaning out your closets and come across any old board games or card games or puzzles please consider donating them to the PVMS counseling office.  This year we are building social skills through games in our small groups and advisory classes.  If you have a donation, please contact Melissa Nelson

Athletics Fees Update


This is a reminder that all school fees and sports fees must be paid for athletes to participate in sports. This includes current fees and past due fees. 

Please also note that Athletic fees for the 22-23 school year are $150 not $125. We are so sorry about this miscommunication. If you need to set up a plan to pay this additional $25 please let our front office know.

If you qualify for Free or Reduced lunch you also receive reduced fees. Directions for that application can be found here. 

8th Grade Continuation Requirements Reminder

As discussed at our required back-to-school parent meetings, there are requirements for 8th graders to participate in end-of-year celebrations including, but not limited to the Continuation Ceremony & Elitches Field Trip

Students must:

Have passing grades in all classes
Have all school fees paid
Have NO drug, alcohol or weapons offenses for the 22-23 school year.

COVID Positive Case Reporting & Isolation for Students

As much as we hate to admit it, COVID is still a thing! If your student tests positive, you need to fill out the Student COVID Reporting Form, this is also linked on the 27J COVID page. 

Students or parents need to report their absence per usual to their school, and should follow these instructions to help determine their isolation period (also on our the 27J website). 

Student Fees

A reminder that student fees for the 2022-23 have been added to your student accounts. The district Fee Schedule can be found here. 

Per district policy, students that participate in athletics are required to have all student fees, not just athletic fees.


School breakfast and lunch are sadly no longer free for all students. The federal program that paid for these meals the last two years has ended and so students are now required to pay the following costs: 

Breakfast- $2.25
Lunch- $3.75
Please encourage your student(s) to eat during the school day, this is an important part of taking care of themselves.

In order to receive free or reduced meals (as well as reduced fees) please make sure to complete the annual Free & Reduced Lunch application. Directions can be found here.
