Sky Hawk News for Parents/Guardians

Week of November 2 - 6, 2020

Sky Hawk Families:

We are going into the 3rd week of the 2nd nine weeks. Here are a few tips for success:

  • Your student should be on time and logged in to class for each period, each day.
  • Have your student turn their camera on and engage with the teacher and other students.
  • Your student needs to be present to hear their teacher explain important concepts and tasks for the day.
  • Have your student check their course grades weekly.
  • Have your student write a daily to-do list. Focus on completing small tasks and do large tasks in chunks.
  • Encourage your student to message their teacher if they have a question about their assignment.
  • Encourage your student to review the recorded instruction for their classes.

Thank you all for working so hard with your student(s) and our teachers as we continue to navigate this new normal of the school year.

PVMS National Junior Honor Society Criteria

The PVMS chapter of National Junior Honor Society is open to all students (Face-to-Face and Virtual) in 7th and 8th grades. Eligibility letters will be sent home after the first semester. Preliminary eligibility is based on a 3.5 GPA. The following are criteria for becoming a member of this prestigious organization:

  • Academic – students must have and maintain a 3.5 GPA upon and after application. Application for membership will be open each Spring immediately after the Winter Break.
  • · Students must exhibit exceptional service, leadership, character, and citizenship. Additionally, four teachers must recommend interested candidates. Students may choose which teachers from whom they seek recommendations.
