Principal's Message

Relationships Matter

Fostering relationships with students is important to me. Over the next few weeks, I plan to meet one-on-one with every student at Pleasant Union. I will set up a mobile office so that I can meet with each child in the hallway. I'll ask them the following:

What do you love about Pleasant Union?

Tell me about a challenging assignment you worked on this year.

How can we make Pleasant Union an even better place to learn and grow?

I am truly looking forward to continuing to get to know our fantastic learners!

Early Checkouts/Absences

Every instructional minute counts here at Pleasant Union. Our teachers are planning high quality instruction up until the end of the school day. Please be mindful of this as you schedule appointments and plan trips.

Afternoon Carpool Reminder

Cars arriving early will line up in a single line until 3:15. At 3:15, the 2nd line can start. Please refrain from starting the double line until that time.

Memberhub and PTA Membership

Track Shirts

Each student is required to have a colored track shirt (Grades K-3) and a grade level shirt (Grades 4 and 5) in order to attend field trips with their classrooms. The deadline for ordering shirts was this past Friday. The PTA will order extra shirts and will announce when the shirts are available in the school store (while supplies last).

Lego Club

Encourage STEM with your child! Access the following link to join the LEGO club: Lego Club. The cost is $10 per student. The meetings occur on the 2nd Tuesday (Grades 3-5) and 2nd Wednesday (Grade K-2) of each month. Lego Club will start on September 10th and 11th for the current school year.


TerraCycle reuses, upcycles, and recycles waste instead of incinerating or landfilling it. This moves waste from a linear system to a circular one, allowing it to keep cycling in our economy. The PUE PTA is partnering with Panthers Give Back and hosting Terracycle Tuesdays at PUE, starting on Tuesday, September 24th. We will have a weekly recycling drive asking for certain acceptable waste to be dropped off during carpool. For each piece of waste we recycle, the PUE PTA earns $0.01. We will be partnering with Tom's of Maine for our first event. You can also sign up at WWW.TERRACYCLE.COM and join free programs. Select Pleasant Union Elementary PTA as your Charity.


Grandparents' Breakfast: The PUE PTA will be hosting a grandparents' breakfast on Friday, September 6th at 7:45am. This event is limited to the first 100 grandparents and their students. Breakfast will be covered for the grandparents and students will be required to use their meal plans for breakfast. Please access the following evite to sign up for this event:
