Happy New School Year! The Mt. Pleasant School District staff and I look forward to welcoming both you and your child to the 2013-2014 school year.
There's a lot of excitement ahead of us, including new teachers to meet, new books to read, new friends to meet and new skills to master and I look forward to you sharing in those exciting times. It's a parents enthusiasm, support and involvement that inspires children to do their best and a teacher's ability to teach what they need to learn. Together we can achieve wonderful things for our students as we make a commitment to being life-long learners. Please become actively involved in your child’s education by volunteering at his/her school. Your child’s teacher and school need your help and support!
Our goal is to provide a safe and caring learning environment for all students. Please take time to review the district handbook carefully as it contains vital information and policies that ensure the safety of all of our students. Please keep it in a safe spot, as you will refer to it during the school year. I encourage you to check the district website and each school’s website on a regular basis. We are all striving to make our website parent friendly with useful information.
I am pleased to announce our ongoing partnership with Foothill Clinic. Please check about the possibilities that Foothill Clinic may provide your family. There is information available at each school site.
I want to again thank the Mt. Pleasant Community for the Measure H Parcel Tax and the Measure L Bond for site improvements. It is this Parcel Tax that keeps our school libraries opened with library techs to help your child and keeps class size lower in grade one.
The vision of the Mt. Pleasant School District is to create a “Caring Community of Learners” and our greatest gift is the diversity of our students and community. Thank you for your commitment to your child's education and I look forward to seeing you in the very near future.
