Announcements

Parent Survey: For several years, PBMS has expected students to wear a school uniform of solid navy, khaki or white clothes. However, when students returned to campus this year for hybrid instruction, we did not enforce the policy. With a few exceptions, it has been going well but we know this year has been incredibly different in so many ways. Before we make any decisions about next year, we would like feedback. Please take a moment to complete this survey by Wednesday, June 2.

INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNOLOGY UPDATES

  •  
  •

Textbook Return: Students will be returning their textbooks to campus next week. Onsite Learners bring their books to school on the following schedule: Tuesday, June 8 - 8th Grade; Wednesday, June 9 - 7th Grade; Thursday, June 10 - 6th Grade. Students will return their books to the media center with their Period 1 teacher. Our Online Learners are scheduled to drop their books off on Wednesday, June 9, from 1:30 - 4:30 in the parking lot loop. Please contact Sally Kaufman if you have questions or concerns.

WE NEED ESSENTIAL VOLUNTEERS FOR BOOK RETURN!!!

8th Grade Promotion: This year, 8th grade promotion will be both drive/walk thru and video. It is similar to the event we held last year but a bit more special. The decision to do this type of ceremony was difficult but ALL students can participate and ALL family members can attend or view the ceremony. Students and families are invited to campus on Friday, June 11 from 10:00am-1:00pm with a scheduled time. Students will receive their promotion certificate while walking across a stage or driving through the parking lot loop. There will be student and family photo opportunities and maybe a few surprises. On the last day of school (6/15) a promotion video will be posted in the 8th grade Google classroom with student and administrative speeches, teacher remarks and most importantly, our students. Click here for more information

State Testing: The State of California is still monitoring the progress of our schools looking at performance data in English and mathematics, attendance data, discipline and social/emotional competencies. The math assessment, the District Essential Mathematics Indicators or DEMI, is a standards based assessment measuring critical thinking, problem solving and communication skills. Students will be asked to apply their skills to solve problems and explain their thinking. Sixth grade students will take their test in English class. The rest of our students will take the test during math class. Students are testing in the one class they have had for the entire school year. The English test is called the FAST test. It is the English test all students have taken this year. Teachers gave it in the beginning of the year and now students will take it again to see progress. For more information, please view the following link: Testing Information

Information for Hybrid Students: 

Gates open at 8:00am. Please do not drop students off before this time unless your child is enrolled in the before school program. 

 

           

Be sure to assess your child's health every day before coming to school by completing the Daily Student Symptom Checklist or using ClearPass ClearPass Directions The checklist must be turned in or the ClearPass screen must be shown to staff prior to entering campus. Direct your child to the main office to get more checklists. 

 

           

Please remind your child of the social distancing expectations: 6 feet apart before school & during the break. Physical distancing is especially important for the students remaining on campus for lunch.
