    Posted by Philip Clayton on 2/25/2024 2:00:00 PM

    Hello Panther Community,

          We have so many awesome student celebrations in this week's update. I will also share some instructional celebrations and highlights as well from the incredible work from our panther staff members. 

    This past week, was definitely the busiest in my time here at Pflugerville Middle School. This month can be straining on staff members and students, but we will be stronger through it all and spring break is only two short weeks away. 

    Through this work, we saw 65 students head to the Regional Science Fair with multiple top finishes, close to 250 students complete TELPAS testing and just yesterday, 66 medals awarded to our Panther KickStart students at the regional spring qualifier and a first place finish in the district. We also had some amazing 8th grade leaders guide 253 5th graders through the building as they visited the campus as well. A huge shout out to Ms. Martin, Mr. Filmore, Mrs. Honeycutt, Mrs. Driscoll, Mrs. Robison, Mrs. Hynes and the multiple students who spoke and performed for these future 6th graders, you did amazing work. 

    This work from our teachers and students to produce these results, is nothing less than incredible. Here are this week's updates:

    Greetings Panther Pfamilies!!

             We are excited to start the school year this Thursday, August 12th. We will be continuing to strive for excellent customer service this year, that truly reflects the "panther pride" we expect from students and staff on campus. Our enrollment is growing by the day and I will report back as school starts where some of enrollment numbers fall next week. We are projected at 930 students and that seems to be the case at the moment. I know that there are some concerns about COVID Protocols and like last year, we are adapting to provided guidelines. Below is information on "things to know" before the school year starts. 

    Return to Learn Protocols: We have adapted the PfISD "Return to Learn" plan to work to fit our campus and will be following the outline provided PfISD Return to Learn. This will help you see where we are at in regards to: Arrival/Dismissal, Cafeteria Protocols, Classroom Procedures, Disinfecting, Hallways, Handwashing, Health Screenings and Isolation Protocols. 

    Student Schedules: Counselors are working to ensure schedules are accurate as possible on the first day of school.

  • Information for April 22nd

    Posted by Philip Clayton on 4/22/2021

    April 22nd 

     

    Good Afternoon Panther Pfamilies!

           Our students and teachers have been putting in a great deal of work and have adapted very well to so many changes this school year. Kudos to our entire staff and student body for demonstrating such great resilience in a climate of virtual, hybrid, and in-person instruction, coupled with wearing masks and social distancing. I’m very proud of our staff and kiddos. We have just over a month of school left and are getting close to 60% of our students attending in-person. Despite the growth, our students are continuing to demonstrate safety and school pride in a really strong way. I just wanted to check-in and touch base with everyone on a few reminders and new items listed below. 

     

    STAAR TESTING updates: 

    7th Grade STAAR testing is next Tuesday, April 27th! Virtual testers should have been sent an email confirming that your child is signed up and will be taking the exam in person on campus.

    If you did sign up using the google form but have not gotten an email confirmation, please email ruth.yamaguchi@pfisd.net or call 512 594-2000.

    If you have not signed up already and received a direct response from Mrs. Yamaguchi, your child will not be able to test for 7th grade writing next week. The reason for this is that planning for students to test in person involves prearranged testing groups, preparing for student accommodations, and pre-screened/arranged test tickets. 

    Registration Requirements - Important: Online verification for returning students is now available online through the Skyward Parent Portal.  Parents/Guardians need to complete the Student Verification and Student Health Forms for the 2021-2022 school year. Please call the campus @ 594-2037 if you need help accessing this through skyward.

     

    • All incoming 6th grade students MUST provide proof of residency.  Proof of residency includes a copy of your mortgage statement or lease agreement AND a current utility bill.

     

    • If you have had a change of address, you must upload proof of residency.

     

    • If you need a Skyward Parent Portal account, please contact the Registrar at Laceidra.moten@pfisd.net



    PMS Pet Clinic - May 5th, 5 - 7 p.m. Come out and join us for quick and easy pet vaccinations and other pet services listed on the flyer. Masks are required and social distancing is encouraged. 

    Virtual Book Fair: Thanks to those of you that have purchased books already! Our book fair is still available online until April 25th. Book orders over $25 will be shipped for free and all orders are sent directly to your home this year! 

    Click here to check out the fair! Thanks for your support!

    I hope everyone has a safe, happy and healthy Friday and weekend! Please continue to contact the campus and myself with any questions and needs you may have.

    Buenas Tardes, Familias Pantera!

          Nuestros estudiantes y maestros han estado trabajando mucho y se han adaptado muy bien a tantos cambios este año escolar. Felicitaciones a todo nuestro personal y cuerpo estudiantil por demostrar una gran capacidad de recuperación en un clima de instrucción virtual, híbrida y en persona, junto con el uso de máscaras y el distanciamiento social. Estoy muy orgulloso de nuestro personal y de nuestros niños. Nos queda poco más de un mes de clases y casi el 60% de nuestros estudiantes asiste en persona. A pesar del crecimiento, nuestros estudiantes continúan demostrando seguridad y orgullo escolar de una manera realmente sólida. Después de un año de tasas de COVID altas y bajas, actualmente estamos en 5 casos positivos totales para todo el año escolar. Eso es un testimonio de que nuestros estudiantes y personal practican las medidas de seguridad y siguen los protocolos. Solo quería registrarme y ponerme en contacto con todos sobre algunos recordatorios y nuevos elementos que se enumeran a continuación.

    Actualizaciones de PRUEBAS STAAR:

    ¡Las pruebas STAAR de séptimo grado son el próximo martes 27 de abril! Los estudiantes virtuales deberían haber recibido un correo electrónico confirmando que su hijo está inscrito y tomará el examen en persona en el campus.

    Si se registró mediante el formulario de Google pero no recibió una confirmación por correo electrónico, envíe un correo electrónico a ruth.yamaguchi@pfisd.net o llame al 512 594-2000.

     

    Si aún no se ha inscrito y no ha recibido una respuesta directa de la Sra. Yamaguchi, su hijo no podrá tomar la prueba de escritura del séptimo grado la próxima semana. La razón de esto es que la planificación para que los estudiantes realicen la prueba en persona implica grupos de prueba preestablecidos, prepararse para las adaptaciones de los estudiantes y boletos de prueba preseleccionados / arreglados.

    Requisitos de inscripción - Importante: La verificación en línea para los estudiantes que regresan ahora está disponible en línea a través del Portal para padres de Skyward. Los padres / tutores deben completar los Formularios de verificación y salud del estudiante para el año escolar 2021 - 2022. Por favor, llame al campus al 594-2037 si necesita ayuda para acceder a esto a través de Skyward.

     

    • Todos los estudiantes que ingresan al sexto grado DEBEN proveer comprobante de residencia. La prueba de residencia incluye una copia de su estado de cuenta de la hipoteca o contrato de arrendamiento y una factura actual de servicios públicos/municipales.

     

    • Si ha tenido un cambio de dirección, debe subir y actualizar un comprobante de residencia.

     


    Clínica de mascotas PMS - 5 de mayo, de 5 a 7 p.m. 

    Venga y acompáñenos aquí para vacunar sus mascotas rápidas y fáciles y otros servicios para mascotas que se enumeran en el folleto. Se requieren máscaras y se fomenta el distanciamiento social.

    Feria del Libro Virtual: ¡Gracias a aquellos de ustedes que ya han comprado libros!

  • Information from Mr. Clayton for April 1st

    Posted by Philip Clayton on 4/1/2021

    April 1st, 2021

    Greetings Panther Pfamilies,

               It has been another exciting week of learning and growing here at PMS. We have been heavily involved in developing our campus improvement plan, master schedule, and creative ways we can celebrate our students next year. They deserve complete recognition for their hard work and I feel like I’ve let them down in that regard this year. We are striving to improve in all areas! There are quite a few important events, dates, and other points to be aware of as we enter this student/staff holiday. 

    Student Holidays - April 2nd and 5th: There is no school for students tomorrow (April 2nd) or Monday (April 5th) as these are student holidays. 

    STAAR TESTING: PfISD campuses are required to participate in the State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness, or STAAR in April and May this school year. PMS will assign students to test on dates within the window.

    Students who participate in remote instruction will be contacted by campus administrators to arrange times for students to be on campus to participate. Students who are not able to be on campus will participate in remote asynchronous instruction on test dates. 

    As we approach the spring 2021 STAAR testing season, we are encouraging ALL students (both VIRTUAL and IN PERSON) to participate in order to gain a data specific understanding of where our students stand academically.

    Being that all IN PERSON students will automatically be scheduled to participate in STAAR, this survey is for VIRTUAL students ONLY.

     -----> STAAR Sign Up Survey- VIRTUAL STUDENTS ONLY

     Please note the following:

    • All IN PERSON students will be scheduled to participate in assigned STAAR administrations

  • Information about PTECH Academy

    Posted by Philip Clayton on 3/5/2021

    Good Afternoon Parents and Guardians,

    I hope you have had a great Panther week. Typically, when spring arrives we notice an increase in various behaviors at the middle school level. I am proud to report that this has not been the case thus far. I praised the 6th graders today as they departed from the cafeteria in a very orderly fashion, social distancing and wearing masks appropriately. It was the best I’ve seen all year and they typically do a really good job following our safety protocols. I was a very impressed and proud Principal today. They also received recognition over the PA system for those behaviors. For as long as I’ve been an educator, I will never underestimate the power of positive feedback and recognition for students. It is a powerful element when reinforcing behaviors.

    I know the STAAR test is right around the corner and there are many questions. I will be sending information after spring break regarding timelines, scheduling, and dates. We are in the process of planning a smooth transition for all of our kiddos. Stay tuned for more information. 

    The information below is an opportunity for our 8th grade students for next school year regarding the PTECH academy. Please take advantage of this great opportunity for your child if you are interested! I have also included information about our Regional Science Fair Winners!!

    PTECH program (Pathways through Early College High School): PfISD has partnered with Austin Community College to provide our students with a dual credit curriculum. It is a program designed for our rising 9th graders (current 8th graders) to begin high school and receive their Associates degree at a completely FREE cost to them in either Computer Programming with a C++ certification or Education with an Educational Aide I certification by the time they graduate from high school. 

    The Computer and Information Technology program (CIT Academy) is being housed at Connally High School and the Pfuture Teachers Academy is being housed at Weiss High School; however, it is open to any rising 9th grader, regardless of where they are districted to attend (students if accepted into the program will have to agree to transfer to Weiss for Pfuture Teachers Academy or Connally for CIT Academy). Transportation IS provided from the student’s home to their PTECH campus and back again. There are no prerequisites for students to apply. Any rising 9th grader in the district is able to be a PTECH student and the only requirement is that they fill out the application and be willing to transfer (transfers are automatically accepted for PTECH students) to the school that houses the PTECH program for which they are participating.

    Here is the link to apply below:

    https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1xnyfeMC6lEWtoofVT2-qWGOMOLsfjL-cRRcve0CKSZ8/edit

    There will also be a Parent Information Event on March 24th at 6 pm and the RSVP for that is located here:

    Please reach out to Jackie Yekpabo with any questions or trouble with the links at 594-0114 or jacqueline.yekpabo@pfisd.net.  

     

    Regional Science Fair: PMS students have been outstanding the last few years at the Science Fair and this year is no different! We had 11 students in grades 6-8 that placed in 1st through 5th place in many categories. Some of them even placed in multiple categories. The areas of study were Mathematics, Plant Sciences, Microbiology, Computer Science, and Watershed Protection. Congratulations on your hard work and this achievement! Winners were announced during lunches today. 

     

    So you all know, we are continuing to focus on passionate customer service here on campus and I’ve loved that some of you all are reaching out to me directly with needs regarding your child. Please keep it up if you need anything at all. My email and phone number are below. I hope each of you have a wonderful Panther weekend!

    Buenas tardes padres y tutores,

    Espero que hagan tenido una muy buena semana. Por lo general, cuando llega la primavera notamos un aumento en varios tipos de comportamiento a nivel de la escuela secundaria. Me enorgullece informarles que este no ha sido el caso hasta ahora. Alabé a los estudiantes de sexto grado hoy, cuando salieron de la cafetería de una manera muy ordenada, con distanciamiento social y usando máscaras de manera apropiada. Fue lo mejor que he visto en todo el año y, por lo general, hacen muy buen trabajo siguiendo nuestros protocolos de seguridad. Hoy fui un director muy impresionado y orgulloso. Recibieron reconocimiento sobre el sistema de megafonía por esos comportamientos. Mientras haya sido un educador, nunca subestime el poder del reconocimiento positivo para los estudiantes. Es un elemento poderoso cuando se trabaja con estudiantes.

    Sé que la prueba STAAR está muy cerca y hay muchas preguntas. Enviaré información después de las vacaciones de primavera con respecto a los plazos, la programación y las fechas. Estamos en el proceso de planificar una transición sin problemas para todos nuestros niños. Estén atentos para más información.

    La siguiente información es una oportunidad para nuestros estudiantes de 8º grado para el próximo año escolar con respecto a la academia PTECH. ¡Aproveche esta gran oportunidad para su hijo si está interesado! ¡También he incluido información sobre nuestros ganadores de la Feria Regional de Ciencias!

    Programa PTECH (Pathways through Early College High School): PfISD se ha asociado con Austin Community College para proporcionar a nuestros estudiantes un plan de estudios de doble crédito. Es un programa diseñado para que nuestros estudiantes de noveno grado en ascenso (estudiantes actuales de 8º grado) comiencen la escuela secundaria y reciban su título de Asociado a un costo completamente GRATIS para ellos, ya sea en Programación de Computadoras con una certificación de C ++ o Educación con una certificación de Ayudante Educativo Nivel I para cuando se gradúan de la escuela preparatoria.

    El programa de Informática y Tecnología de la Información (CIT Academy) se encuentra en Connally High School y la Pfuture Teachers Academy se encuentra en Weiss High School; sin embargo, está abierto a cualquier estudiante de noveno grado, independientemente del distrito al que asista (los estudiantes, si son aceptados en el programa, tendrán que aceptar transferirse a Weiss for Pfuture Teachers Academy o Connally para el CIT Academy). Se proporciona transporte desde el hogar del estudiante a su campus de PTECH y viceversa. No hay requisitos previos para que los estudiantes se postulen. Cualquier estudiante de noveno grado en el distrito puede ser un estudiante de PTECH y el único requisito es que complete la solicitud y esté dispuesto a transferirse (las transferencias se aceptan automáticamente para los estudiantes de PTECH) a la escuela que alberga el programa PTECH para el cual están participando.

    Aquí está el enlace para aplicar a continuación:

    https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1xnyfeMC6lEWtoofVT2-qWGOMOLsfjL-cRRcve0CKSZ8/edit

    También habrá un evento de información para padres el 24 de marzo a las 6 pm y el RSVP para eso se encuentra aquí:

  • Method of Instruction Information

    Posted by Philip Clayton on 3/2/2021

    Good Afternoon Parents! 

               It’s hard to believe we have entered the month of March. This school year has seemed to fly by and slow down at times. While it has been an unusual school year, I know our processes at Pflugerville Middle School continue to improve and that is the message I have made efforts to convey to faculty, staff and students. If we can persevere through challenges and aim to keep improving, we are on the right track. 

     We are entering the 4th 9 weeks grading period after Spring Break. Due to some calendar changes this year, March 12th is now a student holiday and marks the beginning of Spring Break for students. Faculty and staff will be on campus on the 12th to continue planning instruction for students. Information below relates to changing your child’s Mode of Instruction officially for the 4th nine weeks and a mandatory cheerleading zoom today for those interested in joining the cheer squad.

    4th Nine Weeks Mode of Instruction Change: While it must be a challenging time for families to make decisions about either virtual or in-person learning for their child, the next few days will mark an opportunity to change the mode of instruction for the 4th 9 weeks period. The google form below will allow you to change the Mode of Instruction to either virtual or in-person learning, ONLY if you need to make a change. If you are not making any changes to the learning setting for your child, there is no need to access the form.  

     We are leaving this form open until March 10th at 12:00 p.m. for all families to make any appropriate changes for their child’s mode of instruction, which will begin officially on March 22nd (first day of the 4th 9 weeks).

     I hope everyone has a tremendous Panther Tuesday!
