Red Ribbon Week
Red Ribbon Week is the week of Oct. 25-29. We will be celebrating being drug free with the following spirit days:

Tuesday - Too Smart Too Start! Dress like a Smarty (dress like your favorite teacher, doctor, scientist, etc.)
Wednesday - Your Choices are the Key to your Dreams! Wear pajamas.
Thursday - Peace Out to Drugs! Wear peace signs and tie dye.
Friday - Our School Chooses to be Drug Free! Wear your Titan gear or school colors.
Remember all outfits need to be school appropriate.
PTN Membership Drive
The PTN has begun the 2021-2022 membership campaign!! Our goals are to maintain a strong and supportive PTN, and to promote parent involvement in the school, home, and community.
PTN funds are raised from membership dues, after school events, and Cook's Night Out. The money raised from these events is used to provide the teachers with items not budgeted, college scholarships to former PMS students, special projects, and staff appreciation. Due to last year’s COVID protocols the PTN was not able to sponsor school events or have Cook’s Night Out. Because of this, minimal funds were raised.
The PTN not only relies on after school events and Cook’s Night Out to generate funds to support the school, staff, and students, we also rely on the support of our families by joining the PTN. Without this support, the PTN is at risk of not being able to continue assisting with these needs.
Please consider joining the PTN. The membership form is attached. Forms and money should be returned to PMS. Forms are also available in the PMS Front Office. Thank you for your support!
Titan Pride Awards
Once a month on PRIDE Fridays, students who have earned PRIDE tickets get to shop for school supplies, gum, gift cards, Titan wear and more from our PRIDE store. What a fun way to celebrate and recognize the positive behaviors students are displaying.
If you would like to donate items, we will gladly accept them and would be greatly appreciative. Ideas for donations include snacks (pop, candy, chips, etc.), gum, gift cards, supplies (pens, pencils, locker decor) and other small items that middle school kids love. Thanks for supporting positive behavior at PMS!

If your student texts you that they are not feeling well, please advise them to let their teacher know and they will send them to the Health Office. The Health Office will contact you if necessary. It is very important that all students go through the nurse’s office if they are not feeling well.
We are asking for your help so that we can keep track of students' symptoms and take the necessary precautions. We need our students, staff, and families working together to help keep everyone safe.
Building Hours and Supervision
School hours: 8:00am - 3:10pm
Late Start Wednesdays - On Wednesdays, school will start at 8:20am. The late start will have no impact on parent’s schedules. Students can still enter the building at their normal time.
We encourage students to arrive no earlier than 7:30am, as that is the time student supervision begins. Students not involved in after school activities need to be off school grounds by 3:30pm, as there is no supervision after that time.
Dropping Off and Picking Up Students
When students enter the building each day, they will be directed to the north gym until the school day begins. All students must enter through the North entrance.
Students can be dropped off at Central Office and use the overpass. Students can leave from any exterior door after school.
Please use Grant Street for pick up, only busses will be allowed to use the parking lot in front of the school.
If your student will be absent or arriving late, a parent or guardian needs to contact the school @ 402-898-0424 to report the absence. You may also e-mail Tiffiny Rohn @ email@example.com. Please notify the school prior to 8:30am. A message may be left if the line is busy or after regular school hours. A student will be considered “unexcused” if the absence is not confirmed.
If you need to pick up your student during the school day, please try to call the school at least 30 minutes before your student needs to leave. Your student may also bring a note to the front office before school starts. Parents will remain in their cars when picking up and dropping off students. Students will be released once they see their ride in front of the school.
If you know of an upcoming absence, you may call or email in advance; you do not need to wait until the day of the absence to notify the attendance office.
Lunch Account Information
FREE MEALS FOR ALL THIS YEAR!
PLCS will be providing FREE meals for ALL students this school year. A FREE lunch consists of an entrée, fruit, vegetable and milk. Students must take a MINIMUM of an entrée plus 1/2 cup fruit or vegetable to qualify as a free meal. If the fruit or vegetable is not taken, students will be charged for the entrée. Second portions, water and other drinks, a la carte snack items like chips do not qualify as free and students need money in their meal account to pay for these items.
Online Payment Options
Papillion Middle School now has an online option for payments. No more writing checks, unless you choose to.
