Earth Day and a Very Special Birthday at PR!

This year at Pleasant Ridge we will be marking Earth Day (April 22nd) in a very special way.
The staff and students will be participating in a school-wide project that will culminate in the donation to the school of a 25th anniversary tree with a commemorative plaque to be located near our new Building Sign to the west of our Parent Drop-Off Loop. We are asking that each staff member and every student give 25 cents towards the purchase of the tree.

 This 25th Anniversary Project will be one that will last at our building and will mark our time together while celebrating our milestone birthday. Together we will plant the tree on Earth Day.  Money will be collected from March 22nd -April 13th. There will be a collection “tree” in the office.  The Quarter donations can also be made directly to each classroom teacher.

Thank you for your support!  If you have any questions, please contact Nicole Kent at
