Principal's Message

Greetings and welcome to Pleasant Gardens Elementary School.  I cannot begin to express how excited I am to begin a new school year with such an amazing staff, wonderful group of students and parents, as well as a community committed to the success of our school.
I am also thrilled that you have decided to view our school’s website in order to learn more about the wonderful students, staff, and programs we have to offer. Please check the website often to learn of important events. 
At Pleasant Gardens, you will find staff members committed to providing students with innovative, rigorous and engaging lessons following the North Carolina Standard Course of Study.  Our school community is dedicated to providing our students with well-rounded educational experiences including project based learning where we integrate all subject areas including the arts. While the core curriculum is provided for all students, we believe that it is critical to provide leadership opportunities, character education and exposure to technology in order to prepare students to become future ready with a college and/or career focus in which to become lifelong learners.  It is never too early to help students prepare for their future.
We encourage you to visit our beautiful school and see that we are a school committed to children and families.  You will find that this is a vibrant and engaging community of teachers and learners. To our parents, we believe that your involvement is an essential component to the academic success of your child.   We encourage you to visit our website often, meet with your child’s teacher and to get involved in all that Pleasant Gardens has to offer. Your participation in our school is needed and greatly appreciated!  
I look forward to partnering with you on behalf of our future leaders. We welcome you to Pleasant Gardens:  The School That Engages Minds!
Mrs. Melissa Elliott, Principal
