Happy New Year Pleasant Grove Families!  I hope that you and your child have enjoyed the winter break.  I look forward to welcoming everyone back to school on Thursday, January 3.

PTA Family Events: Visit the PTA website to learn about upcoming family events and school programs.


Wake Up & Read Book Drive:  This is an annual district-wide book drive.  From January 5 to February 15, WAKE Up and Read will collect new and gently-used books for children ages birth to 12.  At Pleasant Grove Elementary, our goal is to collect at least 300 books.  Students can send in donated books to their classroom teacher.


Health & Wellness:  If your child has a fever of 100 or higher, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea, then she should stay home.  Students must be fever free for 24 hours and free of symptoms for vomiting and diarrhea for 12 hours – without medication – before returning to school.




  • Early checkout for students ends at 3:15 PM. If you need to check your child out early, please do so before 3:15 PM. 
  • Visits to classrooms and meetings with teachers should be scheduled in advance. If a Lunch Box, homework, glasses, project, or other item of a student has been forgotten at home and is brought to school by a parent, please leave it in the office. 
  • Check the Lost & Found station in the cafeteria for any coats, lunchboxes, and water bottles that are missing. We have quite a collection.
