September 2015 Newsletter

Principally Speaking…..

Dear Pleasant Valley community,

Every August, our students, staff and parents wait with great anticipation for the start of the new school year.  It truly is magical to watch the building transform as individual classrooms are prepared for our patriots.  As the PVM staff prepares for the opening of school, we all relish the first day when our new and returning smiling faces come walking through the door ready for a fantastic year!  WELCOME BACK!  We are off and running with the 2015-2016 year!  Students are settling in to their learning routines and demonstrating the PVM3: Being Safe, Responsible and Respectful.  Thank you for being a part of the Pleasant Valley Community!


Each day the Pleasant Valley staff comes to work driven to meet our collective mission: Pleasant Valley is committed to high levels of learning for all.  We are dedicated to working collaboratively with our community to:

·         Communicate clear learning and behavior expectations

·         Provide a safe and supportive learning environment

·         Empower students and families to recognize and celebrate growth

It is through these commitments that we want all of our students to develop a growth-mindset.  One in which each patriot believes that their abilities are starting points and that their talents are capable of being cultivated, nurtured and developed. 

We greatly appreciate your support in following school procedures and practices.  We know that sometimes following procedures can take more time than we would like.  Please remember that any inconvenience due to our safety practices is specifically designed to help keep the Pleasant Valley Community safe. 

Please look on the Pleasant Valley Middle School Website for information on our Positive Behavior Intervention Support System (PBIS) we are implementing this year. 

Please feel free to call or email me at with any questions or concerns.  Let’s make this a great year!
