Classified Employee of the Year for 2014 is.....

Ruth Highstreet 
from Donlon Elementary School.


Ruth has been with Pleasanton Unified for ten years, starting in Child Nutrition.  Ruth has held the positions of Health Clerk at Walnut Grove and Lydiksen Elementary Schools, and Office Assistant at Walnut Grove, before becoming the Administrative Secretary at Donlon Elementary.  

Ruth is involved in every aspect of the school community and her job performance is truly superior.  Mrs. Highstreet exemplifies leadership and commitment with everything she does, every single day.  She is willing to do whatever it is that needs to be done, without complaint, and also to assume responsibility for the work she does.  Ruth is the "glue that keeps Donlon together."  

Ruth Highstreet's name has been submitted to the Alameda County Office of Education for the county's Classified Employee of the Year program.

Ruth, and her fellow nominees,  will be honored at the Board meeting Tuesday, March 25, 2014. Please join us in congratulating them at this meeting.

Donlon Elementary School’s computer lab is one of many technology enhancements the PFC has been managing.  In addition to purchasing Mac Mini’s for our teachers last year, the computer lab has been recently upgraded with new desktops and monitors.  These computers were well over 5 years old so it was apparent that we needed to upgrade them.  The benefit of obtaining newer computers in our lab will enable each student to obtain the necessary skills to learn more about multimedia and technological tools that will assist them in their educational experience.

Thanks to the many Donlon families who have supported our fundraising efforts so we could achieve this goal!
