Principal's Message

S. Potvin Principal Welcome to Pleasant Park Public School. Our school is an Ottawa Carleton District School Board (OCDSB) school located in the beautiful Alta Vista community. The school was built in 1959 and is planning a 60th anniversary celebration at the end of this school year. 

Our school is a bustling community of 510 learners (aged 3-12) and 40 educators. We are a French Immersion school, offering a two year bilingual Early Years (Kindergarten) program and Early French Immersion for Grades 1 to 6. 

Our educators are diverse, have a wealth of experience, and are terrifically passionate about our school. They offer a rich blend of academic focus and extra-curricular activities for our learners. If you name an extra-curricular club, it’s likely we have it at Pleasant Park. The classrooms and hallways are busy, happy, and engaging places. 

The members of Pleasant Park School Council are very active and welcoming. They meet the third Wednesday of the month and information about their activities can be found through a link on this website. 

Megan Skentelbery, the vice principal, and I work collaboratively with each other and educators to serve the diverse needs of our learners and to stay connected to our community. We provide weekly emails to families concerning the success of past activities and any reminders of  any upcoming activities. You can also find us on twitter at @PPARocdsb. 

I look forward to meeting you and working with you and your child. 

Shelley Potvin
