Mr. Burt Batten

Greetings Families!  My name is Burt Batten and I am excited to serve you and your child as Principal of Pleasant Grove Elementary.

My goal is to make Pleasant Grove a wonderful school for your child.  The years your child spends in elementary school are marked by dramatic transformations with their skills and abilities! With this in mind, I hope to provide your child an enriching learning environment.

I have worked for the Wake County Public School System since 1999 as a teacher and administrator.  After working as an administrator at year round schools in the district from 2008 to 2016 I was honored to be selected as the leader for Pleasant Grove. 

I look forward to working with your family and showcasing the outstanding creativity and character demonstrated by Pleasant Grove students using this website and other activities. Please let me know if I can assist you with any concern or question for your child. You can email me at
