PVMS Mission Statement
Our mission is to provide a rigorous, world-class education which inspires students to become active, compassionate, and collaborative lifelong learners who understand and respect other people and their differences.
Learner Profile of the Month: Communicator
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 April, we are focusing on being Communicators. We are Communicators when we express ideas and information confidently, often in more than one language. We work well with others. PVMS staff members have yellow #IBSTRONG tickets that they are giving out throughout the month to students who are displaying that they are Communicators. Teachers will also be choosing students for “Student of the Month” who are an example to others in exemplifying that they are Communicators. We encourage students to wear yellow on Fridays during April 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.

Take Your Sons & Daughters to Work Day
**Please complete the Prearranged Form prior to April 26th and the Take Your Child to Work Worksheet (to be completed the day of the event) that are included directly below this article of the newsletter to participate in this day.**
For parents NOT employed by Pasco County Schools:
The national Take Your Daughters and Sons to Work day is scheduled for Thursday, April 26th. This day falls during the Year Two FSA exam window. There is not testing for Years One and Three students on this national day. With this in mind, we will use the same process we’ve used the past couple of years for parents who wish to take their children to work with them at their place of employment outside the district. A principal may allow a parent to take his or her son or daughter out of school to participate in the national event if the student DOES NOT have a scheduled FSA on Thursday, April 26th, AND the parent has PREARRANGED the student’s absence with his or her principal and teacher(s).
For parents employed by Pasco County Schools:
District employees who wish to bring their school-age son or daughter to work with them may do so on Monday, May 21st. Employees also must PREARRANGE their children’s absences with their principals and teachers if they plan to participate on May 21st.

PVMS is Awarded an Edible School Garden Grant!
Pine View Middle School is excited to have been awarded the 2018 Edible School Garden Grant! There was an overwhelming response to the grant and we are excited to be to be provided with an approximate value of $100 in supplies for our school garden.
Thank you to the Student Wellness Policy Council for your support of growing students minds with the implementation of an edible school garden!
PVMS Students Shine at the Fair!
Showing animals at fair is not just about walking your animal in the ring- students must keep records of all expenses and products, conduct research on their animal, and research related diseases and other health care factors. Students completed a two hour test on the health of their species, body parts and skills related to properly caring for their animal. These students were also judged on how they were able to handle and work their animal, as well as their animal's features. A lot of hard work goes into being able to exhibition at fair- it is much more than just feeding and watering an animal.
Congratulations to these students on all of their hard work and accomplishments!
