Principal's Message

Greetings Pleasant Run Family!

I hope that each of you have had a relaxing summer with family and friends!

I am certainly excited to bring in the 2019-20 school year, one which will most certainly be filled with enriching, powerful experiences of learning and growth for both the students and staff of PRMS!

Each week I will send out an electronic newsletter (in this format) that you can access via email, our twitter account (@PRMSKNIGHTS), and our school website. My hope is that you will find this newsletter informative and engaging as we strive to celebrate and communicate all of the positive things that are going on at Pleasant Run Middle School! If you have any questions or concerns regarding ANY of the content of the newsletter please feel free to contact me.

I am looking forward to working collaboratively with each of you and building a strong family relationship here at PRMS!

Have a wonderful final few days of summer and can't wait to see you on campus soon!

Go Knights!

Brad Watkins, Principal

Reading Specialist: Shannon Ooten. Shannon is coming to us from Lockland and impressed our hiring committee with her instructional insights and ability to build relationships with staff. Her strong literacy background will be a great addition to our newly established PRMS Instruction/Curriculum Dept. (Sabrina and Shannon).

Office Personnel- Maria Butz. Maria is a familiar face here at PRMS and will be a welcoming one to our community as she greets them in the office each day! We share the Maria’s excitement in having her in this role and are pleased to continue to have here at Pleasant Run!

 Chorus: Chrisi Heinrich. Chrisi is entering her 1st full-time teaching position and I am not sure I've met a more eager and prepared candidate. Chrisi's love for both music and the middle school age group was very evident in the interview process and I have no doubt that her passion will inspire our students!

Intervention Specialist- Morgan Hall; Morgan will be in her first year teaching coming to us from Muskingum University. Morgan’s passion for students and innovative intervention strategies stood out during the interview process and we are very excited to have her on board!

Keonte's love for this district and community drew him back to work with our students and I couldn't be more excited to have him on board!
