In Memory of Dr. Charles Matteo we would like to raise money in his name for the Pleasantville Middle School STEM Program.
“Pleasantville Friends of STEM”. Please donate via our donation link.



Our Middle School Science Olympiad team placed 5th in the Regional Tournament in 2022 and qualified for the State Tournament again. This will be the team’s seventh consecutive year at States in its eight years of existence.

The team is coached by community volunteers and PHS students under the direction of Drs. Martha and late Charles Matteo. We miss you Dr. Charles Matteo!


Our Mission is to Promote a Sustainable K-12 pipeline of STEM-savvy students, Ready for the 21st Century, in Collaboration with the Pleasantville School District and Broader Community.
