Entry Description

STATEHOUSE – State Representative Woody Burton (R-Whiteland) recently brought House Concurrent Resolution 31 to the House floor to honor Terry Magnuson, principal of Pleasant Crossing Elementary School in Whiteland.

Magnuson was named the Indiana Association of School Principals District 9 Elementary School Principal of the Year. He spent 13 years as a teacher and has been an administrator for 21 years. Magnuson was named the principal of Pleasant Crossing Elementary School in 2007.

“I am impressed that Terry knows all of his students by name,” said Rep. Burton. “He makes sure that each of Pleasant Crossing Elementary School’s 500 students receives a personal birthday greeting and a cup on the student's birthday.”

One of the projects Magnuson has championed is the Early Education Project. The goal of this project was to improve the learning capabilities of Pleasant Crossing's kindergarten through fourth grade at-risk students. More than 100 students, the majority of whom are eligible for free and reduced priced lunch, are delivered to school by bus 40 minutes early and receive additional small group skill practice, additional learning in a computer lab and enrichment extensions that help to make learning fun. Reading books are also given as gifts for each child during the year to encourage reading.

“Terry is a devoted teacher and administrator,” said Rep. Burton. “He brings new and fresh ideas into Pleasant Crossing Elementary School, and I am honored to have the opportunity to recognize his efforts.”
