“Love the Bus”:  Families, February 11 – 15 is Bus Driver Appreciation Week.  Please join us in giving thanks to the patience and work of our bus drivers working to transport students safely to and from school.


Thank You:  Pleasant Grove families and staff did an amazing job collecting contributions for two recent service projects – the Jump Rope for Heart program for the American Heart Association and the Wake Up and Read Book Drive!  The success of these efforts would not be possible without your generosity, caring, and support.


Yearbooks: The last day to order a "guaranteed" copy of the year book is February 22nd. The cost is $25 dollars. Use this link from the school  website.



Carpool:  Reports indicate cars are daily stuck on Pleasant Grove Church Road for carpool because drivers want to make short-cuts through the driveway.  For safety, please use the full length of the carpool lane. The school has a quarter-mile long carpool lane to prevent traffic backing up onto Pleasant Grove Church Road. 


Carpool:  For everyone’s safety, if your child cannot use the passenger side of your vehicle to exit/enter your car, please park and walk your child into school.



Lost and Found: Items that have been lost and found are located in the Cafeteria.  The items currently in Lost and Found will be cleaned out on Friday, February 15.


PTA Family Events: Visit the PTA website to learn about upcoming family events planned for February.
