Dear PLV Families,

I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new proud Principal of Pleasantville Elementary School. My name is Renee Griffith, and I most recently have come from Gunning Bedford Middle School, where I served as an Assistant Principal for three years.  Also joining the PLV family is Tierney DuBard as our Assistant Principal.  Ms. Dubard joins us from George Read Middle School as an Assistant Principal.

I am beyond excited to rejoin the Pleasantville community, as I was here six years ago as the Student Advisor for two years. In planning for 2021-2022 school year, Colonial School District and our Pleasantville team are keeping the safety and well being of our staff, students, and families at the forefront of all we do. While I know we will all be learning to “do” school differently, we are committed to an equitable, joyful learning environment for our students.

I am tremendously excited to lead Pleasantville, and I look forward to connecting with you all.

Feel free to contact me at


Ms. Renee Griffith
