Mrs. Pleadwell Notes

Graduation 2018


Posted: November 17, 2020

This fall, our traditional Parent/Teacher, which is scheduled for Thursday evening and Friday morning for Miramichi Valley High School, will be different due to COVID-19.

We are being advised by the Department of Education to not have face-to-face interviews. However, below are two options I am providing so parents/guardians can contact me.

The first and best option would be to communicate with me directly through email should you wish to discuss your child’s progress in my class. If you wish to talk to me directly, you can email me with your name and number and a general time that works best for you (within the parent teacher times listed below) and I will try my best to get back to you. My email is

If email is not possible, you can contact the main office at 627-4083 during regular school hours to set up a “call-in-time”. Keep in mind, that the office staff might be taking other calls, so please leave a voicemail with your details and I will do my best to get back to you

Please keep in mind that regular parent teacher interview hours are on Thursday November 19th from 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm and Friday November 20th from 9:00am to 11:30 am, and “call-in time” will be made for these hours. I also can make calls after 2:30 on Thursday as I am on my prep period.

Law 120 - Teams for communication purposes and for course material and assignments.

GMF 10 - Teams for lesson vidoes and Howework Journal; OneNote for Handouts and for students to take pictures of their work each day.

FWM 11 - Teams for lesson videos and handouts.


My email address is if you need to contact me.
