Mrs. Milligan
Dear PVMS West Families,

I hope you are looking forward to a Super weekend!   Mrs. Samantha Parks and Mrs. DeSanto’s students helped the West staff gear up for Super Bowl weekend by hosting our own Souper Bowl today.  (The students participated in a foods lab - preparing soups and hosting a festive luncheon.) Staff members contributed additional items, and all enjoyed the kick off to the weekend!  Thank you to the students, faculty, and staff in Mrs. Parks’, Mrs. DeSanto’s, and Mrs. Foulke’s classes!)

I am certain that many of you will watch the Super Bowl for the love of the game! If you are planning to watch, enjoy the game; if not, enjoy the weekend!  Additional information for your review is listed below.
