Information about Pleasants County School’s Grading Policy

A new grading policy for all Pleasants County Schools is now being used to determine students’ grades for each nine weeks. 

Red Ribbon Week
PCMS students will attend a magic show on Tuesday, October 25, as part of our Red Ribbon Week activities.  Stephen A. Dixon, the Zoot Suit Magician, will perform magic and share information about the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse. 
Golden Horseshoe: The Musical

On Friday, October 28th,  the eighth grade class will be travelling to Parkersburg's Smoot Theater to see Golden Horseshoe the Musical. This is an exiting musical that covers the major events of West Virginia's history and heritage and covers many of the eighth grade WV Studies standards as well as some of the music appreciation standards. A passive permission slip is being sent home, meaning parents should only return the permission slip if they do not want their children to attend.

After-school Tutoring will begin on Tuesday, November 1, 2016.  Tutoring will be held each Tuesday and Thursday from 3:45 p.m. until 5:00 p.m.

Superintendent's Message - October 2016

Pleasants County Schools is nearing the end of the first nine weeks, which will be October 14th, 2016.  Report cards will be sent home with students on October 24th.  Many educational programs continue to be provided throughout our schools.  The implementation of APL strategies has been a real positive for our teachers and instructional practices.  Each school’s curriculum and leadership teams have completed their school’s 2016-2017 strategic plan which outlines their specific reading/language arts and mathematics goals for this year. Our schools are continuing to guide students academically to reach their full potential.  

College Colors Days

For the third year in a row, PCMS will participate in the College Colors Day Challenges which are sponsored by National Collegiate Licensing Company and the College Foundation of WV. They will take place on Wednesday, August 31 (National Challenge) and Wednesday, November 2 (State Challenge.) Students are asked to wear the colors or a shirt from their favorite college and Faculty/Staff are asked to wear the colors of their college alma mater.
