Some information and background about Ryan’s school (I try to udpate when I can)…
Pleasant Valley Elementary 2013 to…2017
I can’t begin to tell you how proud I am of Ryan’s progress in school. He is conquering his fears and learning how the world works. I am so happy he is (for the most part) enjoying his experience at PVE so far.
His teacher for second grade was Mrs. Hauze. She was amazing. Probably my favorite so far in PVE. More details to come later…
For third grade he has Mr. Farkas as his teacher. I’m writing this on his third day back to school. He was very nervous about going back, or should I say he just didn’t want to go back. He had a good summer with late nights and later mornings. Getting up wasn’t fun. And at one point he said he doesn’t like school at all.
But so far these past few days have been good. He says he loves his new teacher. And he has several kids in his class who were also in his 2nd grade class. He’s even in the classroom directly next to Mrs. Hauze, his 2nd grade teacher! Time will tell how things go. But as of today, third grade is a major success!.
Pleasant Valley Intermediate
Mrs. Bachone is your teacher. These 1st few months have been tough. You’re getting a LOT of work…math is extremely difficult…we’ve had some issues with teachers like your gym teacher (he’s not very nice) and the Dean lady (Mrs. George) who called you into her office and blamed/interrogated you for leaving paper and soap on the bathroom floor. You held your ground though and stayed true to yourself.
Anxious to see how the year goes dude. It’s a new school with lots of new things being thrown at you. You can do it though – I have complete faith in you!!!
End of school year update – 4th grade sucked. You didn’t like it at all. Mrs Balchune was the only good thing you experienced there. Everyday you came home with issues. Problems with other kids, visits to principal who didn’t do anything or try to help, and counselors who you just don’t jive with. This got worse towards the end of the year and all the way up til the last school day. This was the toughest year yet. But you stuck with it and didn’t give up. Don’t ever give up Ryan. You can conquer anything life throws at you!!!
