Monthly Memo from the Principal
Mrs. Robbins- May 2020
Oh, the Places You'll Go!
When I became principal at Pleasant Hill in 2016, I knew immediately that I wanted to carry on this tradition with our fifth grade students. Every year in May, I have read most parts of this wonderful book to our fifth graders and their loving families. It is always hard to get through. My favorite lines in the whole book are the following:
"You'll get mixed up, of course,
as you already know.
You'll get mixed up
with many strange birds as you go.
So be sure when you step.
Step with care and great tact
and remember that Life's
a Great Balancing Act.
Just never forget to be dexterous and deft.
And never mix up your right foot with your left.
And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)
KID, YOU'LL MOVE MOUNTAINS!"
We have three weeks left for us ALL to finish strong. It is still hard to believe that the year is wrapping up?! Although this year is ending very differently, it does not take away from how much of an impact your students have had on my life. On all of our lives. They have left a very clear imprint on our hearts. These kids can do anything that they put their minds to in life. And we cannot wait to see where they will go. We are blessed to have a front row seat for it all!
To our amazing fifth graders, thank you for being a PHEnomenal group of students. You have been kind, loving, funny, welcoming, spirited, competetive, bright, and also leaders. I have no doubt that we will see you go on to bigger and better things in middle school. Please remember that we are always here to support you and cheer you on. Once a husky, always a husky! Kids, you'll move mountains!
The end of this school year was not what anyone had imagined, but think of what it has taught us. Think on all of the great things that led up to this moment in time. We accomplished so many things this year. We look forward to moving forward with you all!
Please let us know if we can be of any support to you and your family! We love you all and miss our students terribly. Until we see each other again, stay safe and healthy.
Oh, the places WE will go...
Goodbye to our beloved Ms. Eubank!!
Thank you for everything Ms. Eubank!!! You have made our world more beautiful!
5th Grade Celebrations
Lastly, once we have clearance, we will be hosting a yearbook signing event at PHE for everyone to attend per grade level. More details will be shared with the community, but only after we have been given clearance from the state and at the district level. Other events like Reunion Ranch will be cancelled due to not having Business Fair (which funds this field trip) and of course Covid-19 restrictions that prevent us from this type of gathering.
Last Call for 2019-2020 Yearbooks
Yearbook production will be slower than usual due to Covid-19, but will continue as soon as possible. We will be hosting a yearbook pass out and signing party at a later date. Again, we will wait and publicize that event once we have clearance from the state and district.
2020-2021 Enrollment Form
Student Item Pick Up/Library Book Return
The following are the two dates/times available in May:
Monday, May 18th from 6:00-7:00 PM
Wednesday, May 20th 10:00-11:00 AM
Please follow the same map for drive thru that was used for laptop distribution (see below). You can pull up with your student's name on a piece of paper with their grade. We will bring your student's items out in the bag and place in your backseat or in your trunk. Please do not get out of your car. Personal item bag pick up will be at the back of the school. Library book and resource drop off will be at the front of the school with Mrs. Green.
If you have medicine that belongs to your student, Nurse Heidi Rodriguez will have a process to pick those up on the same dates. She will be sharing information with you all as well. Her pick up with be at the front of the school.
Please bring your child's library books and SRP/small group readers back to PHE if possible. Mrs. Green will have a bin or cart available for returns.
Once school is out for the summer, we may offer another date for pick up and returns. That date and time is yet to be determined.
TECHNOLOGY is not due at this time. Laptops will be returned when we are back on campus. Fifth graders may take their laptops to their Leander ISD middle school. If you are MOVING, please contact Mrs. Robbins to arrange a separate drop off for technology.
Please let us know if you have questions!
