Dear Pleasant Grove Elementary Families,

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Pleasant Grove Elementary! On behalf of the entire staff, we look forward to seeing you on Thursday, August 16th to kick off our school year. Our teachers, office staff, and custodians have been working hard this summer to ensure our students and families have an exciting and successful school year.

First day of school is Thursday, August 16th. This is an Early Out day as usual. Students in grades 1-6 begin school at 8:00am and dismiss at 1:35pm. Please note that Kindergarten does not participate in Early Out. AM K schedule is 8:00-11:20am. PM K schedule is 11:00am-2:20pm.

Back to School Night is Thursday, August 16th! Kindergarten begins at 5:00pm. Then grades K-6 meet in the quad at 5:45pm. Grades 1-6 classroom presentations begin at 6:00pm. Classroom session will repeat again at 6:30 for those of you with more than one classroom to visit. Please plan on arriving to school early to beat the traffic rush. Warning bell rings at 7:55am. Students shall be in their classrooms ready to learn by 8:00am. Students arriving after 8:00am, even if the gate is still open, will be marked tardy. Principal’s Coffee Chat continues this school year! I hope to see you on the first Wednesday of each month. Coffee chat alternates between 8:15am or 1:45pm. Our first coffee chat will be Wednesday, September 5th at 8:15am. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at dwood@egusd.net or 685-9630.

Here’s to an amazing 2018-2019 school year!
