PBMS Family Bulletin

PBMS strives to be a place where students want to come to school, parents want to send their children and  staff want to come to work.

PBMS January 12, 2023 

 

Message from Principal Meng 

Missoula Children's Theatre: Come see our cluster students put on a great show this weekend: King Arthur’s Court. Shows are this Saturday, January 14 at 1:00 and again at 3:00 in the auditorium. Tickets will be sold at the door. We hope to see you there. 

PBMS Winter Dance: The “Met Gala”  dance will take place at PBMS from 4:30-6:30 PM on Friday, January 20th. To match the theme, we  are encouraging students to dress semi-formal, but it is only required that you follow the school district’s dress code. Tickets are $5 (cash only) and are being sold this week and next week during lunch in front of the locker rooms. We will NOT sell tickets in the evening at the door of the event, but will sell them at lunch on Friday the 20th. The tickets have a permission slip on the back that needs to be signed and brought with students to the event to be able to enter the dance. We encourage students to take a picture of both sides of the ticket in case it is lost. Much more information can be found in this slidedeck: DANCE and at the end of this message.

Ava V is hosting this fundraising event for her IB Community Project. All proceeds will be donated to support underprivileged youth sports. Ava believes, "Sports are an important part of growing up and underprivileged children deserve a safe space to play." It’s Star Wars night, so don’t forget to dress up!

PBMS  Covid Testing:  Effective January 28th COVID testing will shift from weekly site testing to an ALL HOME test kit model.  Students and staff who wish to test regularly or as needed after Jan. 28 can pick up free home test kits from the office through the end of the school year. District contact tracing and case management for students and staff will continue until further notice. All positive home test results should be reported to the school nurse and the self reporting tool.

Input on SDUSD Math Placement Policy: Over the past year the district math team met with clusters to listen and share information about math. The information will be used to draft a new accelerated math placement policy. Here is another opportunity for anyone who would like to provide input:

Feedback: If you have questions or concerns, please contact me via email at [email protected] or Mr. Sobel, Associate Principal,  at [email protected]. We will connect you with someone who can help or assist you ourselves. Again,  we strive to create a space where students want to come to school, staff want to come to work and parents want to send their children. Take care.

Additional Dance Information

The price of the ticket covers the price for DJ and access to a professional photo booth and caricature artist if you choose to dance, take pictures, and want a caricature made (these will be free). We will also have a free craft and game section at the dance. 

 Students  will only need to bring money if they want to purchase items from our food trucks, Beach-N-Boba and Tacos El Unico -  cash and credit cards only - NO apple pay or other credit card apps. 

The theme is “Met Gala” and we are encouraging students to dress semi-formal, but it is only required that you follow the school district’s dress code. 

Students are expected to arrive at 4:30 and stay until 6:30. If a student needs to come late or leave early, they are expected to clear it through Ms. Mack, Principal Ms. Meng or Vice-Principal Mr. Sobel.  No student can leave the dance early on their own.
