IB Learner Profile of the Month: Caring
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 February, we are focusing on being Caring. We are Caring when we show empathy, compassion and respect towards the needs and feeling of others and we act to make a positive difference in the lives of others. Teachers will also be choosing students for “Student of the Month” who are an example to others in exemplifying that they are Caring. We encourage students to wear pink on Fridays during February 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.

Exploravision has concluded in Year 3 Sciences!
Our Year 3 students have been exploring seemingly impossible solutions to very real problems in the world around us. After working for 5 months, they have put the final touches on their vision of how technology can improve our world. Some of their technologies are designed to help remove the sting from illnesses such as liver cancer, asthma, Ebola, and Alzheimer’s. Others aim to clean up our oceans, improve air quality, make auto and air travel safer and more efficient, reverse widespread coral bleaching, improve our ability to predict earthquakes, and protect people from hurricanes and tsunamis. Projects were submitted Friday, February 7th, and now we wait to see if our students’ explorations into the future will be chosen to compete at the next level.

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.

Staff Shout Outs!
Mrs. Roland is so knowledgeable in Honors Algebra 1 but most of all she is caring. She communicates after school hours and during lunch breaks when I struggle with the task at hand. Her subject is one I have to work on so much and I feel confident that when I am confused or am blocked Mrs. Roland takes extra time above and beyond class to make sure I get it. I appreciate Mrs. Roland so much! Sophie S
