Please check Google Classroom for weekly agendas, slide presentations, assignments, class announcements, and more.

With Google Classroom, you ALWAYS have access to agendas, assignments, and announcements. Google Classroom is easy-to-use and an essential tool in keeping organized and up to date w/ lessons and activities. Please be sure to ask your student to share our Google Classroom with you.

Parents: If you would like to receive daily or weekly notifications of Google Classroom activities and announcements (sent straight to your email), please email me your request and I will add you as a Guardian to our Google Classroom.


How do I contact the teacher? I welcome the opportunity to communicate with both students and parents regarding academic progress. To preserve confidentiality, I will not discuss student progress during class time. Students may arrange to meet with me privately during breaks or after school when necessary. Parents and/or guardians may contact me regarding their student in several ways

  • E-Mail: This is the most efficient method of contacting me. My e-mail address is KMcDonough@PleasantValleySD.org.
  • Phone: Call the school and leave a message during school hours. I will return your call within 48 hours. The school phone number is (805) 482-8891.
  • Note or Letter: Please jot down your questions or concerns on your student's agenda and as long as they remember to show it to me, I will respond promptly.
  • Please also be sure to regularly check ParentConnect. This will give you 24/7 access to my gradebook and will allow you to see your child's current grade as well as any missing assignments.
