Positivity Focus for the Week:  Kindness

Canned Food DriveTHANKS for GIVING! All because of your generous donations, we were able to donate 1,552 canned food items to the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle.  A super big congratulations to Mrs. East’s 4th grade class.  Students in this class collected 248 cans and will get to celebrate with ice cream.  Thank you, PTA!

2024-2025 Reassignment Plan:  At the WCPSS Board of Education meeting held on November 21, 2023, the Board voted to approve the final reassignment plan.  Mostly, some students currently attending Pleasant Grove will be reassigned to Brier Creek, Leesville, or York Elementary.  Incoming students to Pleasant Grove will be reassigned from Parkside and Alston Ridge Elementary.  Included in this final plan was a calendar change for our school from a traditional calendar to that of a multi-track year-round.  I encourage you to visit the district’s website dedicated to this topic to see how your address will be impacted by the reassignment plan for next year.  2024-2025 Enrollment Plan
