Principal's Message

Mrs. SkinnerWe are dedicated to creating a community of learners.  Our goal is to incorporate the social curriculum with the academic curriculum where every person in our building feels safe, respected and happy.  When these needs are met, students are able to do their best learning.

 

We also encourage families to become involved at The Plains Elementary.  Talk with your child everyday about school and what is going on in the classroom.  Keep the communication open with the classroom teachers. Volunteer in the classroom, field trips, or other all school activities.  Together we can make The Plains Elementary a successful school.

 

We wish everyone a great school year!
