ANNOUNCEMENTS

Pick Up and Drop Off:  Getting in and out of the parking lot is always challenging on the first few days of school! We will be using the same traffic pattern that we started in February of last year.  Those dropping off or picking up students will come from Middle Road onto Crow Creek and turn right into the parking lot.  All buses will come from Valley Drive.  Please familiarize yourself with the traffic patterns for drop-off and pick-up at Pleasant View to make the transition easier!

Bus Assignments: If your student is riding the bus, please make sure to check the parent portal Sunday night.  Bus assignments could change up until that time.

Free Breakfasts & Lunches:  As a reminder, all students qualify for free breakfasts and lunches through the end of 2021.  Al a carte items will still be charged at normal pricing.

Run with Carl:  Join us on Monday, August 23 for a training run with Fleet Feet!  We’ll meet at the Life Fitness Center at 6:00pm.  All who participate will get a special discount promo code! You can sign up for the race now here or volunteer for the race by clicking here.  Proceeds support the Pleasant Valley Educational Foundation’s scholarship program.

FROM THE PTA:

Fall Fest 2021: Save the date for the Pleasant View Fall Fest on the evening of September 17!  Learn more about Fall Fest here. This year Fall Fest will take place outdoors at Pleasant View. Fall Fest is our school's largest fundraiser and we need you to make it a success! Can you donate to the Silent Auction (tickets to a local event, items to go in to baskets, etc)? Can you donate money to help purchase raffle items (PTA Venmo account @PleasantView--PTA)? Can you donate peanut-free candy for prizes? Look for the donation drop off bin in the school lobby at Meet and Greet. Questions, check out our PTA website or contact Kristi McFate (kristimcfate@hotmail.com).

Fall Fest Game Sponsorship: Do you own a business? Are you a realtor? Are you a personal trainer? This year we are offering to display your logo and advertise your business at one of our Fall Fest games for a $250 donation to the Pleasant View PTA. We are interested in showcasing the broad talents and contributions our Pleasant View families make to our community!! Please email pleasantviewelem.pta@gmail.com if you are interested in being part of our sponsorship team.


Room Parent Sign Up: The PTA is seeking Room Parents for the school year. A list of room parent duties and the signup can be found on the PTA website.  We will also need help with silent auction baskets for our Fall Fest. Sign up for both here!
