Principal’s Corner

Dear Families,

Congratulations to all Pleasant Ave students for reading enough books and completing the AR tests to earn the AR Carnival!  Students will enjoy a day of water slides, games, treats, and more! It is important to continue to read over the summer! Consider joining the summer reading program at the Johnstown Public Library.  More information about joining will be coming home soon.

Thank you for your continuous support and volunteerism at Pleasant Ave. We appreciate everything you do to help the staff and students. We hope that you have a safe and enjoyable  summer.  Good luck to those students moving on to Glebe. We look forward to seeing our returning and new students in September!  Please feel free to contact me anytime!


Cory Cotter,
Pleasant Avenue Principal
