January Student of the Month


                  PVM January 5 Habits of Heart and Mind



Park View Middle School received a check for $1,000 from Exxon Mobil.   We appreciate the continued support from Parker Oil Company and Exxon Mobil towards our student’s education.




The Park View Middle School Brainiac Bunch Destination Imagination team recently visited the dog they are trying to get adopted, Lucky. They were all very taken by his calm demeanor and spent the whole time petting and rubbing the sweet boy.
In case you didn’t know, Lucky is a four year old Lab mix who has been at the Lake Country SPCA for five months. He doesn’t jump and is addicted to attention. He has been neutered and has had all of his shots. Please step up and give this loving lab mix a home!!!! Please call LCSPCA at 434-374-8076 for details on the adoption process and remember that the SPCA is always accepting donations.



Please note:  Important dates to remember are now located in the Parent’s Corner section of the webpage under Useful Links.

Parent ID:

Parents please provide a photo ID not only when signing out your student but also for when you may need to see them in the office for a brief moment or for when you would like to join them for lunch.  Your student’s safety is very important to us and we want to make sure only those individuals who are listed on the student’s emergency card may contact the student during school hours.  Thank you.
