Pasco County Schools has created a set of Frequently Asked Questions and posted them on our website to assist with answering questions for staff, students, and parents. You can access the FAQs at this link right below the video from Superintendent Browning.
Below the FAQs we have provided a button where parents or staff can submit questions or suggestions that are not covered in the FAQs. This marks our first use of the new Let’s Talk platform.
Gary Joiner Property Appraiser Contest
Gary Joiner, the Pasco County Property Appraiser is hosting their annual essay contest through the end of March.

Last year our very own Nathan Hull won this contest and received amazing gifts from the Tax Collector’s office.
Please be sure to share all entries to email@example.com electronically by 3/27 so that we can submit them to the Property Appraiser’s office by the deadline of 3/31.

IB Learner Profile of the Month: Balanced
As a PVMS Family, we focus on a different Learner Profile (a trait that we strive to display to become the best people possible) every month. For March we are focusing on being Balanced. We are Balanced when we understand the importance of finding harmony between the intellectual, physical and emotional elements of our lives. PVMS staff members are issuing PBIS Points to students who are displaying that they are Balanced. Teachers will also be choosing students for “Student of the Month” who are an example to others in exemplifying that they are Balanced. We encourage students to wear blue on Fridays during March to represent our Learner Profile of the month.
You will see signs displaying the Learner Profiles throughout the school. The profiles are also posted above the white board in each classroom. Teachers have a second set of magnetic Learner Profiles that will make it easier to highlight which Profiles are relevant to the current classroom activity.
Caring Students of the Month
A link to FortifyFL is available on all staff and student my Pasco Connect accounts. Pasco County Schools will soon be adding FortifyFL information to each school website and the Pasco County Schools website. FortifyFL information is also available to each student and family on the inside back cover of the 2019-2020 student planner.

Odyssey of the Mind
Enjoy thinking outside the box? Join Odyssey of the Mind! Participating in Odyssey of the Mind provides you the opportunity to learn creative problem solving, teamwork and self-reliance while having fun solving a problem and creating a presentation with your own ideas and those of your team mates. Although you have an adult coach (usually a parent) to support and advise you, all the ideas and the work on the solution come from the team members. It all culminates in a multi-school regional competition in late February/early March and a chance for the highest scored teams to compete at the State Tournament in Orlando and maybe even the OM World Finals.
Interested students (and adults interested in coaching a team) can complete the form at: https://pvms.pasco.k12.fl.us/4297-2/
For more information please contact Pine View’s OM coordinator Nilsa Calabria, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at (813) 794-4800, Ext. 44901 or (813) 618-8995.

Staff Shout Outs!
Ms. Fromm leads the yearbook staff at PVMS. This is usually the highlight of my daughter's day. Ms. Fromm creates a great culture among the members of this group where they are accepting and open-minded of each other. Also, Ms. Fromm allows students to have a large amount of responsibility and creativity. As a parent, it is wonderful to know my child this time where is feels accepted, creative, and productive. She always comes home from yearbook with a smile on her face.
