The Plains Elementary 2019 Bronze PBIS Award The Plains Elementary

Principal's Message

Mrs. SkinnerWelcome to the 2019-2020 school year!  It is exciting to have all our students, teachers and staff members back to school ready for another positive year at The Plains Elementary!

This year we will continue our Positive Behavior Program called, "The Bulldog Way!"  Students will continue to learn how to Be Safe, Be Responsible and Be Respectful.  Our teachers have planned many activities that help create a positive culture and create pride in our school.

Our school wide goal is to develop the whole child both academically and socially in a success-oriented learning environment.  The greatest gift we can give a child is confidence in their individual worth and ability.  A confident child, excellent teachers, well-designed curriculum and supportive parents are a winning combination that provides results.

We are excited for all the new things happening in our building and district. We strive to meet the academic, social and emotional needs of "EVERY LEARNER, EVERY DAY!"

We wish everyone a great school year!

Mrs. Heather Skinner
