PBMS Family Bulletin September 5, 2022

 

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 September 5, 2022 

STUDENTS ADDED!

 

Message from Principal Meng 

We had a great first week of school and strive to make each week better. Please stay connected with teachers and staff to support your child and you through the middle school years. Our website is in the process of a major overhaul  to make it a true resource for you. Be  sure to check it out and give us feedback. A challenge we will have for the next few weeks is a slower response time from the main office staff. We have one less member on the team and a vacancy. Thank you for your patience. 

 There are a few  things we are asking all parents to do by the end of this  week. A packet of information and  forms for you to complete and return was sent home with your child on Tuesday 8/30.  Be sure  to  activate your PowerSchool Parent Portal. Directions will be found in the packet. Once in PowerSchool, update your contact information. In addition, you must complete the LCFF form (to help PBMS qualify for Title 1 funds next year).  We truly appreciate your swift attention to this.  More information can be found below. 

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. 

PBMS Updates & Reminders

 Complete your LCFF form:  PBMS lost close to $100,000 is site funding due to our Title 1 status. You can help  us get the funding back by completing the LCFF form in PowerSchool. Directions can be found at the end of this bulletin.

Textbook Checkout: Students will receive  textbooks on Tuesday, September 6 during their math class. Here are a few suggestions: bring a heavy duty bag for the books, arrange for a ride home, keep the books at home in a safe place. We have class sets on campus so books should not come back to school until the end of the school year. 

PBMS Merch: To purchase PBMS gear, visit the east door of the administration building before or after school (check or cash) OR  click on this Uniform Flyer, scan the QR code and purchase your student’s PE Uniform and Spirit Wear online. Students can pick up their order by bringing the receipt to the  east door of the administration building before or after school.

Friends of Pacific Beach Secondary Schools: The FOPBSS PTO has their first meeting on Wednesday, September 14th @ 6:00pm in the Mission Bay High School Library.  This is a great way to stay involved in your child's education as they get older. Hope to see you there.

 

Future Bucs Night: 

  •  Come out for a night of family fun at the Mission Bay High School football game on Friday, September 23 at 7:00pm. More information will follow.

PB Palooza: Join the PBMS Music Association for a Rockin’ Day of Good Fun and Good Cheer! On Sunday, September 25 we will be holding our 5th Annual PB Palooza featuring bands made up of former PBMS and MBHS music students.  Yup!  Former students making a living playing music.  In addition to great music, there will be food, drinks, and a bake sale.  The Price is $10 per adult and $5 per student.  All proceeds go to support the PBMS music program.  PB Palooza will be held at the San Diego Mission Bay Boat and Ski Club (2606 N.
