Principal's Message

During the month of September, our students learned about how receiving a quality education is an important aspect of life. Students learned about how lack of resources can impact students across our nation and around the world. At Pleasant Union, we took action to support giving to people in need. We thank all of our students and families for supporting our book drive. As you know, we collected books for the Wake Up and Read book drive. They donate 10 books to students who don't have books at home. That means, we were able to collect enough books to help 245 students in Wake County! Pleasant Union is such a caring community and definitely did its part this September on working toward the global goal of Quality Education.

Please check out the book totals by grade level:







Total- 2,449 Books

*Fourth Grade will deliver the books the books to The Wake Up and Read contact and Third Grade will send their books to Africa!

Veterans Day Concert

Veterans Day is a month away, and Pleasant Union always enjoys recognizing families and friends who have served in the Armed Forces. As well as two concerts of patriotic music, we do a wall in the lobby highlighting those people who are our heroes. If you have a special veteran in your life that you would like to recognize on this wall, please consider sending in a copy of a photo of this person. Please label the back of any photos so that they can be returned.

For more details about the concerts, please check out Ms. Freer’s Google site on the Pleasant Union webpage.

Thanks for helping us honor our veterans!

We would like to once again thank all families who came out to support us with landscaping last weekend. Additionally, we appreciate the brand new picnic tables provided by the PTA!!
