From the Principal

  August, 2018



Welcome to Pleasanton Middle School, the home of the Panthers.  We are committed to providing all students with educational opportunities and experiences to ensure that all students leave middle school and enter high school with the skills, knowledge, and resilience necessary to achieve their goals as 21st Century global learners.  Our staff at Pleasanton Middle School is committed to providing a safe, engaging, and rigorous learning environment that supports the social, emotional, and academic development of every student.

Our school community is proud of the educational program we have developed in partnership with staff, students, and parents/guardians. The counseling department, office staff, and administrative team are available to assist you and your child in making this a productive academic year. Our beautiful, well-designed facility, a source of pride for the entire community, provides a stimulating learning and working environment. We encourage families to join us in the rewarding endeavor of providing students with the support and guidance needed during these middle school years.
Our educational community establishes high expectations of not only ourselves, as we model life-long learning and responsible citizenship - but of our students. We are preparing all students to be global citizens with the confidence and skill sets to compete in the 21st century workplace.  Equipping our students with the language, cultural sensitivity, and technology skills to successfully navigate through the global workplace and interact with the world is essential.Working in partnership with parents/guardians and the community, we strive to ensure that we are developing life long learners who will be empowered as they develop their character, work collaboratively with others, pursue their individual interests, and reach their maximum potential to be creative, responsible, and self-motivated learners.  We encourage all students to become creative, critical, and reflective thinkers making connections between the classroom and the real world. 
As the Principal of Pleasanton Middle School, I am honored to be part of a learning community that values providing opportunities and supports so all students may be successful.

Best regards,

Principal Jill Butler, Ed.D.
