It is hard to believe that it is March! Hopefully, spring weather is on its way. Please remember to have your child dress in layers as the temperatures inside and outside the building can vary throughout the day.
One of our goals this year was to make our building more secure. Our front exterior doors are now locked until 7:45 a.m. If you are dropping off students for daycare or our morning reading program prior to 7:45 a.m., we ask that you use the daycare entrance doors on the east side of the building (where the buses load and unload). The front doors will also be locked at 4 p.m. so if you have to pick up your child after 4, please use the daycare entrance doors on the east side of the building. Buses will be leaving that area by 4 p.m. Because your child’s safety is our top priority we also ask that you not park on the north side of the building at the end of the day. We have students and parents exiting these doors and traffic moving through the car lanes. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we implement these changes.
We have some exciting events occurring this month.
-Our PTO will be meeting on March 2 at 5 p.m. in the Elementary School library. This is a great opportunity for parents to become involved in our PTO.
-Third quarter ends on Thursday, March 8. Report cards will be sent home with students on Friday, March 16th.
-We welcome all dads for Dollars and Donuts with Dads on March 15 at 7:30 a.m. in our school cafeteria. We will have the front doors open on this day for you to enter. We hope that all dads and kids can enjoy donuts with juice provided by PTO. Please bring a dollar as a donation. All proceeds will go to the Pleasant Hill Lay Clergy.

I would like to ask you to check out our new district website at www.pleasanthillschools.com. It is a work in progress, but we hope that you will find it easier to access the information that you need. March is a busy month, and we have a lot of great events and activities happening at Pleasant Hill Primary. I hope that you will follow our school district on our district website and also on Facebook.
Remember that our meal policy only allows Primary School student to charge 3 meals. Please check on your child’s meal account frequently in order to keep an adequate balance.
Parents, please label your child’s clothing items with first and last names, especially outerwear such as coats and jackets. Also, check our lost and found box in the front hall periodically for any missing items.
