Pleasant Hill Middle School
Dear Middle School Parents:
As the second semester continues, the number of student quarantines have become less and less. This is encouraging as we look to go back to full-day school next year. I appreciate the willingness of staff, students, and parents to adapt to this year and its challenges. We have come far since August.
Students will complete state testing the week of April 19. As cumbersome as some of the safety practices have seemed, we were able to see every student every day. We are excited to take the MAP and EOC tests this spring to show the resilience of our student body. They have put time in at school and at home learning the curriculum, and we eagerly anticipate them showing what they have accomplished through these assessments.
Band and choir students have been active this year even through restrictions. They have been practicing and performing, including a performance in the HS gym and a virtual musical.
Track and Field is underway this spring with home meets on April 13, 22, and 26. This is reassuring since we did not even have a season last year.
The final day of school will be Thursday, May 27, and we will go full day since we have the students split over the two sessions. Like everything else, we adjust our end-of-the-year activities to a safer version.
Whether AM, PM, or virtual; we want students to continue to persevere through this challenging time and continue to learn and grow. PHMS staff has dedicated their time to make this happen. We are so glad we can see every student every day.
Greg Reeves, Principal
