NVD sponsored a contest  asking art students to create ads for local businesses.  The ads were then submitted to businesses and the business selected the ad.  Watch the video to see what ads were chosen from those submitted by  PMMS art students.

tops Hello PMMS families!

My name is Krista Heres and I am the librarian at PMMS as well as the boxtops coordinator. In light of recent budget concerns, I wanted to remind you that we are a BOXTOPS school. That means we collect boxtops throughout the year and use the money to fund purchases that touch your child’s life every day. This is an easy way for every family to help their child’s school. Boxtops can be clipped from many of the products you already purchase. Each boxtop is worth 10¢ and they accumulate quickly as more families participate. Last year, we raised over $1,400 through the boxtops our students brought into school. Your participation is truly appreciated!

As you clip boxtops at home, please remember that other family members are also purchasing products that include boxtops and may be willing to send them to PMMS as well. Have your child ask their grandparents, aunts, uncles, extended family and friends to clip and save boxtops to help their school. As you accumulate boxtops, they may be sent to the school at any time throughout the year. I’d like to ask that, if you have any boxtops at this time, they be sent in this month as we have an opportunity to submit them at the end of October. Remember, we will collect them at any time but we’d like to start with a big push here at the beginning of the year.

Also, visit the boxtops website at www.boxtops4education.com where you can sign up for coupons, see a list of boxtops products, find opportunities to earn bonus boxtops and more. Feel free to email me if you have any questions or would like to help us organize the boxtops after collection at keheres@shenandoah.k12.va.us box



                As Shenandoah County Public Schools welcomed our students back for the 2015-16 academic year, we began our Drug Education Initiative. In an effort to do our part in addressing the growing concern of substance abuse, our Open House presentations included informational sessions and resources to incoming 6th and 9th grade students and their parents. But this was just a beginning. We are now in the process of equipping classroom teachers with training to increase their awareness and understanding of this issue.

                These efforts are well worth our time, as we remain focused on our belief, “Great communities come from great schools.” However, we are just one piece of the solution. Parents, we need your help. As your child returns to school, recognize he or she may experience peer pressure to use alcohol or drugs. As a parent, keeping your child safe is a top priority. So this week, we’re inviting you to have a conversation with your son or daughter about substance use. Open that dialogue about peer pressure, your expectations, and any concerns your child might have. In case you need help talking to your child, we’re attaching some helpful pointers. If you need additional information, contact your school’s guidance department.

                Thank you for helping us to make this a great year! When it comes to substance use, recognize it can impact anyone’s child. Let’s join together to keep all kids safe and to reach our goal of “Not our students – not my kid!”
