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

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.
