PLEASANTVILLE ELEMENTARY MAKES DONATION TO FMC
On December 21, 2017, kindergarten and first grade students from Pleasantville Elementary, along with Principal Michael Myers, donated more than 150 coloring books, 75 packs of crayons and colored pencils, and more than 50 books to children who come through the doors of Fairfield Medical Center. FMC Keely Pearce, Donor Relations Representative & TWIG Liaison for the FMC Foundation, was on-hand to accept the donation and chat with the children about how their gifts would be used. "When kids get sick and go to the hospital, it can be scary - whether they're sick or they have a family member who is sick - and these gifts are really amazing because they will make these kids smile," Pearce said. "It's so special to know that someone else is thinking of you while you read or color." On behalf of Fairfield Medical Center and the children who come through our doors, we sincerely thank Mr. Myers, his staff, and his students from their compassion and care for their community!

1ST GRADE VISIT TO HUGUS FRUIT FARM and LAND LAB
The 1st grade at Pleasantville went to Hugus Fruit Farm and the Land Lab. It was a lot of fun on a beautiful day! We went on hikes, made leaf people and made bird feeders.
Fourth Graders at Pleasantville learned about the solar eclipse on August 21st by using pinhole viewers. We learned how the eclipse happens using Mystery Science. Our scientists were amazed at how the moon and sun worked together to make this event happen.
