Principal’s Corner

Dear Pleasant Avenue Families,

Happy New Year and welcome back!  I hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday break.  Your children are working hard and are doing amazing things at Pleasant Avenue.

Literacy Night is scheduled for January 14th.  STEAM (science, technology,             engineering, art, and math) Night will be on January 23rd.  More detailed information will be going home soon. The Building Planning Team meeting is on January 21st at 3:30pm, all are welcome to attend.

Remember to continue reading and completing AR tests.  Our goal is 2500 points by the end of May – we are at 600 points as of January 1st.

Please continue to communicate your challenges and concerns with your child’s teacher and principal.   Report cards will be sent home on January 31st.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me by phone or email at
