On Friday, I had the opportunity to visit Pleasant Ridge to watch the culmination of their PTA fundraiser.  This meant that three staff members – Principal Bezeau, Physical Education Teacher Mr. Welton and Lead Custodian Mr. Pratt – would be dunked by the students!

Anyone who was there can attest to the energy in the gym as the students prepared to dunk them.  It was one of those enjoyable moments where adults and students come together to have fun and celebrate the sense of community they have built.  When Mr. Bezeau arrived at Pleasant Ridge two years ago after having been a Guidance Counselor and Assistant Principal at Saline High School, one of his goals was to build a strong sense of pride among the students, staff and parents.  He coined the slogan, “Pleasant Ridge Pride” and had it painted in the building.

Well, after seeing the event on Friday…. there is little doubt that the Pleasant Ridge community has strong sense of pride in their school.

    We very much appreciate what Mr. Bezeau & the rest of the staff has done for PR. We feel lucky to be a part of it.
