Mrs. Milligan
Dear West Families,

Our second week has gone as smoothly as our first, and all are looking forward to the second, long weekend ahead.  Next Wednesday, 9/12/18, will be a busy evening with a Title I as well as our first Home and School Meeting (Title I – Room 123, 6:00; H&S - MSW Library, 7:00).  We appreciate the ongoing involvement of West parents and our Home and School volunteers.

In addition, our fall sports season will be in full swing, with many teams beginning their game schedules.  Go Vikings!

Fall Sports Pick-Up – The fall sports season is a very busy one at PVMS West.  For car cars pulling along the curb by the sidewalks, please go down as far as you can toward the main entrance of the school.  Once the curb area is full, please park in the parking lot. Please do not park along the curbs of the parking lot as this creates too narrow of a driving lane and limits the visibility of pedestrians.  Our primary concern is the safety of our students. If everyone can be on time, park in a spot, and be wary of pedestrian traffic, we can make athletic pick-up run smoothly and efficiently.
