First Day 8/26
-Final schedules will be distributed the first day in first period classes. Confirm your first period on the bulletin boards near the office before you proceed to first period.
-Don't panic. You do NOT need to memorize your schedule. We will be on hand to help.
-Please know parking and drop-off on the Felspar entrance will be impacted by construction so plan accordingly.
-1st Day of School: Check the bulletin boards by the 400 building before school starts to confirm your1st period class. In 1st period, you will get your final schedule. This is the most up-to-date schedule and should be followed. If there are concerns with the schedule, you can submit a "Schedule Concerns" form before school, at lunch, or after school. Counselors will address the concern as soon as possible.

First Day - for students who enroll after school starts
-If you are new to PB Middle and are enrolling after the first day of school the front office will set up a meeting with you and your counselor
>-Counselor will get you your schedule and get you started
-Library Technician will make sure you get the textbooks you need. Any passwords you need will be in your planner and distributed by teachers.
-Don't panic. You do NOT need to memorize your schedule. We will be on hand to help.
-You can get dropped off but a lot of kids ride or walk to school.

-PIN numbers will be on your schedule
-Bring your lunch, or a family member can put money on your PIN number.
-If you get free/reduced lunch, you'll just use your PIN as you did at elementary school and get what you want for lunch.
We have cafeteria lines in the lunch-court but also have grab and go carts around campus. We do not have a big indoor cafeteria because, well, we're in San Diego. It's always sunny. If it rains we open up areas for you to stay dry and eat.

First Week Routines for Success
-Sixth graders and new students, you will be tired when you arrive home. Be patient with yourself and your family as you settled into your new schedules and meet new friends.
-Minimize your plans after school and try to maximize family time by taking a walk at night or playing a game together.
-Discuss and set a schedule for your afternoons.
-Go through your backpack and get a homework routine set-up everyday, even if there's no assigned homework.
-If your forget something or make a mistake, come up with a solution or list of solutions and try them.
-Help yourself before you ask your parents for help.

Pick-up / Drop-off
Enter on Felspar only until school starts. The Diamond St. entrance will be open for drop-off and pick-up once school starts. There is no entrance on Ingraham. It is highly advised to set-up a drop-off and pick-up spot that might involve a little walking to school to avoid high-traffic times. Or, better yet, walk and roll to school and save the environment and get a little exercise.

Finding Your Way
We will help you get to your rooms. Don't panic. You do not need to memorize your schedules for the first week. Ask a teacher for help.
