Welcome to Panther Valley Middle School.  PVMS has 463 students enrolled for the 2014-2015 school year. PVMS strives to provide a learning environment where students can achieve academic success and reach their fullest potential.  Our forty five faculty and staff are dedicated to providing an enriching curriculum that will prepare our students for the world in which they live today.

October 2014
The Student Council officers along with Mrs. Ogozalek, Mrs. Alabovitz, and Mrs. Gardiner will be heading out to local businesses on Thursday, October 2nd to request donations for our Red Ribbon Week at the end of the month.

The Sixth Grade team will sponsor a dance on Friday, October 10, 2014 from 7pm to 9pm.  The dance is open to only Panther Valley Middle School Students.  Cost is $3 to get in and snacks will be available for purchase. Dance guidelines can be found in the handbook.

On Monday, October 13, 2014 there is no school for students as teachers will participate in an in-service day.

The 8th grade students will be attending the Renaissance Faire trip on Wednesday, October 15th.  This trip connects to a Language Arts unit students have been working on.

October 16th is the last day of Cycle 1 for our special area classes.  Students will begin their next special class on October 17, 2014.  Believe it or not, the end of the first marking period will be October 28th.  Please monitor your child's grades on our Power School System and work with them to be successful in their education.

The end of October is an exciting time at the middle school as we participate in Red Ribbon Week.  The focus of this week is for students to understand the importance of being drug free.  Students will participate in raffles and purchase red links to try to earn a spot on the grade level dodge ball team. The week culminates with the dodge ball games on Friday, October 31st.

If at any time you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.  It is an honor and privilege to work with your child.
