Pleasant Grove Families,
It’s hard to believe, but our final month of school will begin next week. This has been an amazing year, but there are still some wonderful things to come. I’d like to take a brief moment to let you all know of a couple of upcoming events.
First, our Pleasant Grove Open House is scheduled for May 8th, from 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. Classrooms will be open and everyone is invited to come and see some of the amazing things your children have been working on. Immediately following the Open House, we would like to encourage everyone to make their way over to the Multipurpose Room, where our bands and string ensembles will be performing their Spring Concerts from 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. These are some remarkable student musicians, and they are a pleasure to hear perform!
Our Music Boosters will also be conducting a car wash on May 4th, from 10 a.m. – 2:00 pm. to raise funds to help support music here at Pleasant Grove. If your car is filthy, why not let some of our musicians scrub it clean for you!?! If it’s not filthy, why not drive around in some mud and grime, and then let them wash it for you? Donations are graciously accepted, or you can contact Mr. Weller or the Pleasant Grove Office Staff to see how you can purchase tickets in advance.
Finally, the end of the year festivities for our 8th Graders will be here before you know it. Permission slips and payment for Sunsplash and the 8th Grade dance/party are due by April 30th! Don’t delay in getting these forms in, as we need to finalize our numbers very soon, and cannot accept late forms! If you have any questions or need assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact Mrs. Migliaccio or me. The promotion ceremony for our eligible 8th graders will be held on May 24th at 1:30 p.m. Let’s all hope for great weather!
As this year draws to a close, I can’t help but reflect on how fortunate we are to have the opportunity to work with such fantastic children. Their hard work, dedication, and perseverance are simply amazing, and their successes make us all proud. Have a great evening, and if there is anything we can do for you, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Every Day Counts
Every Day Counts in a child’s education. Every day a student misses school, he gets more than two days behind his peers, because he must make up missed lessons and catch up with new lessons at the same time. Regular and punctual attendance will help increase student academic growth. California Education Code Section 46010 states that only valid reasons for absences from school are:
School districts NO longer receive funding from the State of California for students who are absent from school. This includes ALL absences, even those related to illness, medical/dental appointments. In other words, schools will receive state funding only for students who are in their seats for that day. Please be sure to assist your child in maintaining exemplary attendance to insure the best possible education for him/her, as well as maximum state funding for student attendance. So far this school year Pleasant Grove has lost approximately $91,800 due to student absences. Even if a student attended school part of the day we could still receive income for that student ($35-$40 a day per child). We kindly ask you to be sure your child only stays home when it’s absolutely necessary.
We know you want the very best education for your child, and we do too. Thank-you for understanding that Every Day Counts, together we can give your child the very best education.
