Apps parents should know about
Here's some very helpful information from the Sarasota Sheriff to keep you children safe online:
IB Learner Profile of the Month: Principled
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 August, we are focusing on being Principled. We are Principled when we act with honesty and integrity and take responsibility for our actions. PVMS staff members will award PBIS points to students who are displaying that they are Principled. Teachers will also be choosing students for “Student of the Month” who are an example to others in exemplifying that they are Principled. We encourage students to wear purple on Fridays during August 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.
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 email@example.com, or by phone at (813) 794-4800, Ext. 44901 or (813) 618-8995.
