A Warm Welcome to Interim Principal Mr. Ponticello

Dear Pleasant Avenue Families:

This letter is to advise you that Interim Principal Cory Cotter is expected to be absent from her duties at Pleasant Avenue for much of the remainder of April, but is looking forward to being back with us as soon as possible.  While Mrs. Cotter is out, Mr. Michael Ponticello will act as Interim Principal at Pleasant Avenue.

Mr. Ponticello is a long-time administrator, having served first as Assistant Principal and then as Principal for 12 years in the Gloversville School District.  Since his retirement from Gloversville in 2011, he has remained active in the field of education as an Interim Assistant Principal for BOCES and a coaching assistant in the Gloversville baseball program.

Please extend a warm welcome to Mr. Ponticello as he joins our Greater Johnstown School District family! His first day at Pleasant Avenue will be Tuesday, April 10, and he is very excited to be working with young learners again!


Patricia N. Kilburn, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
