june newsletter from principal tamarah grigg

Dear Pleasant Valley Families,
As we come to the conclusion of the school year, I wanted to thank the Pleasant Valley community for making my four years as principal at Pleasant Valley a rewarding and enjoyable experience. The work of teaching and learning is essential to the functioning of a democratic society and I am so thankful to help in that work with all of you. As we continue to create a school that has high quality instruction focused on student learning and establishes a positive culture with a focus on relationships. My goal as principal is to help create the conditions where everyone (parents, students, and staff) work united for each student to meet all measures of student learning placed before them.
I really do find joy in my job. I love being the principal at Pleasant Valley and I love the people that I get to serve with each day. We have a wonderful staff. In addition, we have so many wonderful students. I do have a great place to work. Where else can I be paid to be involved with wonderful people and engaged in such an important cause? Not too many. Is the work hard at times? Yes. Are there days that are less enjoyable than others? Absolutely. Do sometimes I wish it was Saturday and not Tuesday? Sure. However, I do appreciate what we have been able to do, and the people I get to do it with. That is what makes being the principal at Pleasant Valley so incredible.
I am so excited for what the future will bring. Next year I will be the principal at Chief Middle School and Mike Maloney will be the principal at PVM. Mike is currently the principal at Amboy Middle School and will be a wonderful addition to the Pleasant Valley Community.
