Happy Holidays!

I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving break and enjoyed the holiday with your family. We have three more weeks of school, ending with a minimum day on December 21st, until winter break. No school December 24 through January 7. School resumes on Tuesday, January8, 2019. For those of you with young children, Wednesday, Jan 9th is the date that we begin handing out registration packets for the 2019-2020 school year.

Thank you for all of your generous donations thus far this year. Through the Kids Can Food Drive and the ChiPs for Kids toy drive (going on now) PG families are showing they care about our community. Thank you! Also, thank you for the very generous donations and support of our APEX Fun Run. Your donations to our school help fund purchases for ourschool library, playground equipment, technology, and much more!

At PGES we value the strong bond between our school and our community. Further, we understand the importance of partnering with families to support academic success. Thank you for the great turn out at recent parent/teacher conferences. The collaboration between the parents and the teacher is paramount and an additional component that makes Pleasant Grove Elementary a special place to be. Speaking of special…we have had an incredible turnout to all of our family events so far this year. I look forward to seeing you at our next event, Cookies and Crafts with Santa (12/8), and at the next Coffee Chat, which is Wed 12/5
at 8:15am.

We have some news in regard to parent volunteers that is going to affect a lot of our families, so please look for that email this week! Another email you will be receiving soon is a very important survey regarding our LCAP (Local Control Accountability Plan). We are looking for 100% participation on the parent survey. It will only take a minute!

From the entire staff at Pleasant Grove Elementary,
Happy Holidays to you and your family!
