Pleasant Avenue Newsletter September 2019

Principal’s Corner

Welcome Back! I hope everyone had a great summer and is excited to be back to school. It is important that you check your child’s purple communication folder each day. In the past few days there has been important paperwork that needs to be completed and returned, as well as a district calendar with the A-F elementary  schedule.

I encourage all parents to get involved in the Johnstown School District. Join the Johnstown Elementary PTA and/or the Pleasant Avenue Building Planning Team. We also have monthly activities for students and parents to attend. Sign up for REMIND to get updates from Pleasant  Avenue.

I am very proud of all of the students who completed AR tests this summer and the students who participated in the Johnstown Public Library Summer Reading  program. Reading is such an important skill for our children. Please continue to read daily with your children.

Just a reminder, school starts at 9:00 am.  It is very important to have your child to school on time and ready to learn.  Breakfast is served from 8:30 am until 8:55 am. If your child will be  staying home sick, please call the office at 518-762-8610.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me by phone or email at I am looking forward to seeing all of you at Open House on September 19th from 5:30 to 6:30 pm.


Mrs. Corinne Cotter, Principal
