Pleasant Ridge Principal

Dear Parent or Guardian:

It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the Principal of Pleasant Ridge Elementary School.  I possess over 25 years of educational experience spanning grades K-12 with a specific concentration in at-risk, special education, and enrichment opportunities for children.  I am excited to bring my knowledge and experience to your son/daughter’s school and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.

The staff and I will work hard to continue the tradition at Pleasant Ridge by building strong relationships with parents, students, and community partners.  We will focus on a strong curriculum, next generation learning and the 4 C’s, while fostering a nurturing, safe environment for children.  We will use data to enhance student learning while implementing direct instructional strategies.  Our goal is to increase students’ achievement by providing exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students.

I anticipate a successful year as the staff and I support the academic, social, and emotional growth of your child here at Pleasant Ridge Elementary School.

During the course of the year, we will work together to provide students with the best possible opportunities in preparing them to be world-class citizens, ready to master the challenges of the 21st Century.  As Principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet!

I look forward to seeing your child on the first day of school, September 5, 2017.

In partnership,
Kevin Musson
Principal of Pleasant Ridge Elementary

Student Information/Parent Input 2018-2019


As in the past, we are providing you an opportunity to share your thoughts with us regarding your student as we begin the placement process for the 2018-2019 school year.

Many factors are taken into account when creating classroom assignments. Our primary concern is creating well-balanced classrooms that create optimal learning opportunities for all children.

This is NOT an opportunity to choose your child's teacher for the upcoming school year. This is, however, an opportunity for you to provide us with information about your child so we may make every effort to appropriately place your child where he or she will have the greatest success.

This form will be available ONLY until April 27 2018

If you have questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Thank you,

Kevin Musson

Math Support Program

This year, in addition to “Best Fit” groups for literacy intervention, we are able to provide math support for students whose beginning of the year benchmark data indicated that they may need extra practice in basic math skills. This will occur 3-4 days/week and will look different at each grade level.

Mission Statement

The staff of Pleasant Ridge Elementary School will guide all students in the development of an educational plan consistent with each student's individual talents, interests, and aspirations. 

We will provide a comprehensive education and counseling program that will prepare our students for whatever endeavors they pursue beyond high school. 

We pledge to provide all students with the knowledge, skills and technological literacy necessary to become informed, productive citizens in the communities where they will live and work.  Our ultimate goal is for our students to become life-long learners.
