What's Happening

  BREAKING NEWS!!!

From the Principal's Office:
Good Afternoon Parents and Families,

Happy Monday and welcome back from the weekend!!

1st Quarter Complete!
Allow me to congratulate all of you on the successful completion of a great 1st quarter!  We have seen tremendous progress from our students across the board and I am looking forward to the many successes that I know our kids will experience this year. Please know that I am GREATLY appreciative of your efforts that have led to our student’s success and achievement!

Middle School Family Game Night (October 18 from 6-8 p.m.):
The Middle School will be hosting an evening of food and fun for all of our students and their families this Wednesday (October 18) from 6-8 p.m. We will be serving a free meal (hot dogs, beans, chips, etc.) followed by a time for fellowship and games put on by the middle school staff. There will be lots of candy and prizes and admission is free, so please come spend an enjoyable evening with your child and their teachers!

In addition to the fun and games, we want to continue to provide our community with tools and resources to help our kids through the trauma that they have experienced after the loss of their classmate this summer. We will be hosting training sessions for parents (Safe2Tell and “Supporting Your Child during times of Grief”) starting at 6:45.

Guest Speaker (Ethan Fisher):
This Thursday, (October 19) we will be having a guest speaker talk to the student body at 10:15 a.m. This year’s guest speaker is Ethan Fisher and he will be sharing a tremendous life story with our student body (please see the following details on Ethan’s life):

Ethan Fisher is a preventative and motivational speaker that works with students and student-athletes. He uses his life story as an educational and precautionary message to make the youth aware of the dangers of underage drinking, substance abuse and brings awareness to the issues of peer pressure, depression and other mental health topics.  Fisher has turned his life around after committing a DUI, Vehicular Homicide at the age of 23. Since the horrible accident in 2003, and after 3 years in prison, Ethan went back to college and not only graduated, but did so with numerous accomplishments and achievements. He was the recipient of two college degrees, 3 minors, graduated summa cum laude, was awarded the entrepreneurship student of the year and was the recipient of the President's award. He then furthered his education and received a master’s degree with honors.  While finishing his undergraduate degrees, Ethan continued to beat the odds by playing college basketball at the age of 27 as an inmate of the Colorado Department of Corrections. With a bulky ankle monitor, curfews, random parole officer house check-ins, he still managed to be recognized as an All-Conference and Most Valuable Player (MVP). All while playing in less than 50% of the games, due to his Inmate Status and travel restrictions.

I am looking forward to having Ethan speak at our school and think that he will have a strong impact on our students!

School Dance (Friday, October 27):
We will be holding our first dance of the year on October 27 (a week from Friday) from 6-8 p.m. in the MS cafeteria. Please remind your students that eligibility does count for attendance to school dances. If you have not worked with eligibility through athletics, here are the rules:

In order for a student to be eligible for school events such as dances or athletics, he/she cannot be failing more than 1 class at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday morning.  Because this dance occurs at the very beginning of a quarter, I am hoping that the “ineligible” list will be very short and that the vast majority of our students will get to participate.  If you have questions about eligibility, please feel free to contact myself or Mr. Melendrez at 970-336-8610.

Thanks again for all you do and have a fantastic week!

Sincerely,

Jason Taylor
Principal
“PVMS Promotes Respect, Value, and Care in All That We Do!”


                                          STUDENT DROP OFF
Parents please utilize the drop off lanes when dropping off students unless you are planning to walk them to their building. Students are being dropped off in the parking lot which is creating a dangerous situation as they walk across the lanes of traffic. If you are walking your child to their school, please use the cross walk.
