IB Learner Profile of the Month: Thinkers
As a PVMS Family, we focus on a different IB Learner Profile (a trait that we strive to display to become the best people possible) every month. For September, we are focusing on being Thinkers. We are Thinkers when we use both critical and creative thinking to approach complex problems. we understand that sometimes there are no simple answers. PVMS staff members will award PBIS points to students who are displaying that they are Thinkers. Teachers will also be choosing students for “Student of the Month” who are an example to others in exemplifying that they are Thinkers. We encourage students to wear orange on Fridays during September 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.

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 email@example.com, or by phone at (813) 794-4800, Ext. 44901 or (813) 618-8995.
