Principal's Corner

Mr. Kelly       

A Message from Our Principal

Welcome to the Pleasant Grove Elementary School website!
 
As one of the five elementary schools in the Center Grove Community School Corporation, we take pride in our students, staff, parents, and community partners.  We take pride in our student achievement scores, the rigor we provide, and the standards we maintain.  These standards are the reason Pleasant Grove is recognized as a 4-Star by the State of Indiana and has received an A grade from the Indiana Department of Education.  
 
With the 2012-13 school year upon us, I would like to take this opportunity to encourage parents to get involved.  Pleasant Grove has a strong tradition of parent involvement through the PTO and classroom volunteers.  I challenge you to take an active role in the development of your child’s education and invite you to volunteer in the many events held throughout the school year. 
 
Our focus over the last four years has been to improve the communication with students and parents.  We have taken many steps to become a school that uses data regularly to keep students and parents informed of progress, norms, and overall performance.  Every student at Pleasant Grove knows their performance data and maintains a binder to track their progress throughout the school year.  The Pleasant Grove norms are posted on the website and shared with our stakeholders.  Stay informed, keep up with what is going on at Pleasant Grove and be part of your student's education.  Everyone is important at Pleasant Grove!

 

We are looking forward to another great school year!

Sincerely,

 

Trael Kelly
