What’s Happening at PLV?

Smarter Balanced State Assessment


Beginning this week, our 5th grade students will begin the Smarter Balanced State Assessment. There is a listening portion included in the assessment in which students may bring their own headphones to school to use. It is important that students arrive to school on time and eat breakfast before beginning the assessment. Encourage your child to go to bed early and get plenty of rest. You can also encourage your child to do his or her BEST and show what he or she knows! Good luck to all!

Pennies for Patients

Congratulations to the efforts of all students, families, and staff at Pleasantville! Our original goal was to raise $1,800. We exceeded our goal, raising $2,008.69! WOW!!


Pleasantville recently registered to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Student Series’ Pennies for Patients. Pennies for Patients is an event in which money is collected to help find cures for blood cancer patients and also to help educate the students in our school about the needs of kids just like them who may be going through a very difficult time. On April 11th, your child was sent home with a small box to be used to collect spare change. Students can put any amount of change in the box. Once full, please bring the box back to school so that the money collected can be counted and added to your child’s classroom container. The money collected in each classroom will then be counted and combined with money collected in other classrooms. This year, LLS is awarding a pizza party to the class with the most money collected! In years past, Delaware has donated a total of $70,000 to research that could help save lives! Let’s join the effort and raise as much as we can! Thank you for your support!
