WELCOME TO PGES! HOME OF THE EAGLES
Welcome to the 2017/2018 school year. I am Adam Dasinger, principal here since the summer of 1998. PGES is a wonderful school that has an inviting "family culture". We aim to educate our students in a positive environment. Our faculty is dedicated to the students in all aspects of their education. I invite you to read about their biographies and professional qualifications at our website. Our students are the reason why we are here and you will find that our teachers treat them "like their own".


Coming from a proud, hardworking tradition, PGES started in the 1920s when one room school house consolidation began. By the late 1920s, Pleasant Grove Junior High School was established and remained that way until the building burned in the early 1970s. After the fire, Pleasant Grove Elementary School has been established on the same campus and now incorporates grades pre-kindergarten through sixth grade. We are proud of our past and excited about what the future holds for us here at PGES as well as Cleburne County.


Welcome again to the start of a new year. If I can be of assistance, please call me at 256-253-2146
Go Hollis !!!

Alabama PreK-through-Third-Grade Integrated Approach to Early Learning 2017/2018 School Year

28 days ago

Pleasant Grove Elementary School was selected from a pool of applicants participating in the Alabama PreK- 3 Leadership Academy (one of eight schools in the state) for the 2017/18 school year. Go Hollis!!!

Each participating school  received a $15,000 grant for each classroom to purchase age-appropriate classroom materials and improve early learning experiences. PGES was awarded over $70,000. 

PGES PreK, K and 1st grade will be a part of the program with planned expansion to 2nd and 3rd grade within the next two years.

As told by Governor Ivey, “A strong start in the early years of a child’s education ensures a strong finish in their later educational endeavors. Whether a student will find success in school and the workforce is traditionally evidenced in their performance by third grade,” 

The Alabama PreK-through-Third-Grade Integrated Approach to Early Learning program is a joint partnership between the Alabama Department of Early Childhood Education and the Alabama State Department of Education.

AMSTI Science at PGES for 2017/2018

about 1 month ago

Exciting news about science instruction at PGES. In partnership with the Cleburne County High School Science Department  (thanks Mrs. Bain), PGES will now have science lab materials (and a dedicated lab) to borrow from to support the Alabama Math and Science Initiative (AMSTI) training that all science teachers at PGES completed in June 2017. 

Mrs. Moore, Mrs. Holmes, Ms.Hubbard, Mrs. Farr, Mrs. Turner, Mrs. Taylor, Mr. Bedford , Mrs. Williamson, Mrs. Winter, Mrs. Goggans and even Mr. D attended multiple days of training.

A science lab this year has been developed (next to the computer lab) and will be used to set up the science "kits"  we will receive (from AMSTI)  this school year as well as supportive lab materials that CCHS has graciously allowed us access to use. 

Mrs.Brittany Williamson ( who will teach science to grades 4,5, and 6 this year) will be our liaison with CCHS and will support PGES teachers with lab set up and materials. 

Please contact Mr. Dasinger if you have any questions and thanks CCHS.  


Breakfast In The Classroom for 2017/18 School Year

27 days ago

The Alabama Appleseed Foundation in Montgomery has awarded Pleasant Grove Elementary School grant funding in the amount of $2000 to serve as a local pilot school for "Breakfast in the Classroom" for Pre-K, K, 1st, and 2nd grades during the 2017-18 school year. We are the only school in the Clay, Cleburne, Randolph and Calhoun County School Systems to be awarded this funding from the Alabama Appleseed Foundation. 

Students in these grades will receive breakfast in their classrooms during breakfast time at the school. There are several advantages to Breakfast in the Classroom, with the biggest advantage being to increase participation in the breakfast program by our youngest students, so that all of them will be ready to learn at their maximum potential each morning with a nutritional breakfast. 

Please see the links below for additional information and as always, contact Mr. D at the school for additional information as well.
