Mrs. Milligan
Good Afternoon, everyone.

First, a very special thank you to all of our parents who attended one or more of our first three evening events: Sixth-grade/New Student Orientation, Meet the Teacher Night: Grades 7 and 8 and the PVMS West Book Fair, and Title I:  Parent-School Partnership. We appreciate your time as well as your willingness to partner with us in your child’s/children’s education.  Please remember that you can contact individual teachers and teams whenever you have questions, comments, and/or concerns.

I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful week and are as excited about some of our upcoming events and activities as we are!

Dress Reminder – West is a climate-controlled building, so many of our classrooms run a little cool.  All students are encouraged to leave a sweatshirt and sweatpants in their lockers or gym lockers.  Also, for students who prefer to wear flip-flops, we also suggest leaving a pair of sneakers on site for classes such as PE, Tech Ed, FCS, science, and art.  Our dress code can be found in our Student Handbook.

There is no school on Wednesday, 9/19/18.
