Message from the Principal

AWARDS: Next week we are hosting the  IB Awards Ceremony. Our  8th graders will be recognized for academics, citizenship, service and special IB Subject areas. Our 6th & 7th grade students will be recognized in service and special IB Subject areas. We have a fall awards ceremony for second semester academics and citizenship. Invitations went home with students on Thursday.

Office Staffing: We currently have just two staff in the office. This is half of our normal staffing. Office hours are 7:30-12:00 and 1:30-3:30.  Please be patient with response times. If you need to report an absence, please email at [email protected].

Bell Times: Several families shared concerns about the ending time of the extra elective next year and inquired about zero period. This is not an option with the healthy start time initiative. However, PBMS may have an opportunity to change our start time to 8:00am next year. We can start at 8:00 instead of 8:30 next year. On a typical day, school would end at 2:45pm. The end time for the extra elective would shift to 4:10pm.

Before making a decision, we need  input from our 5th, 6th & 7th grade families. A survey was sent home via email Friday evening. We can start at 8:00 instead of 8:30 next year. On a typical day, school would end at 2:45pm. The end time for the extra elective would shift to 4:10pm. Please take a moment to share your preference.

Textbook Check In: All students will  return their textbooks on Tuesday. Specific return directions will be shared with students on Monday. Chromebooks do NOT get turned in unless your child is leaving the district.

PBMS Music Program: Several parents and community members reached out last week to express concerns about the music program. Please know, PBMS has music classes in the schedule for next year based on student interest and we are working on your concerns. There is no update on staffing at this time but we will keep you posted on any changes. Thank you for your patience and continued support of our excellent music program. The following link provides details about music at PBMS next year.

22-23 Music LetterCOVID Updates:In the past week, PBMS had 4 positive COVID cases on campus.  Please keep your child home if they are experiencing any COVID symptoms.  Weekly testing is recommended for all students. If PBMS experiences an outbreak, we may require masks indoors again. A special notice will go home if that becomes necessary.
