June 2018,

Welcome to the NEW Pleasant Run Elementary family!  Whether you are a brand new Knight or a long standing Knight it’s a great time to be part of this community!  

We will start the 2018-2019 school year in a brand new K-5 building – it’s an amazing complex, bringing the outside in through gorgeous windows, courtyards, learning labs, and playgrounds!  The interior is set up for flexible learning, experiences, technology, hands-on learning labs, an amazing art room, gymnasium, and music/stage area. Everything you can imagine needed for elementary students to learn will be at our fingertips! The students will be surrounded by clean, bright, open spaces perfect for learning at their greatest potential.

This year the building will be led by Mr. Casey Scherz and Ms. Jemel Weathers.  Within the teaching and support staff you will notice some new faces and a few loved familiar faces too.  We will have about 850 students to start the year. One exciting academic change is the addition of orchestra and band classes during the day for our fourth and fifth grade students.

While there are many “new” things to be excited about we also understand new things require new plans and time for learning the new routines as adults too!  Please check our web page frequently for updated plans as we get closer to the start of the year; including arrival and drop off procedures, fees, supply list and important dates. One of our goals is to move to paperless parent communication so it will be important for you to get connected to your Pleasant Run Elementary communication systems!

We are anxious for the start of the 2018-2019 school year and having our Knights of Knowledge cross over into our new castle!

Please join us for our Open House on August 20, 5-6:30 p.m.
