Principal's Message

Mrs. SkinnerWelcome to the 2020-2021 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!

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
