September Update: #BetterTogether…Stronger than Ever!
Greetings Plumb Community,
I am excited to report that Plumb Elementary Staff and Scholars are rising to the challenges of this new school year. Everyone has been working together to create positive learning environments both in the realm of virtual learning and face to face instruction. We have been faced with a learning curve, but each day students, staff and families continue to build our online programs, understand our processes for social distancing and strengthen our simultaneous teaching.
Academics are taking hold: In reading scholars are focusing on becoming unstoppable readers and writers with a focus on various strategies related to fictional text. In math, scholars are focusing on number sense and fluency and during science, scholars are exploring concepts of the solar system and the Earth, for example patterns in the sky, rocks and minerals and gravity. Additionally, our music, art and PE programs are in full swing and the initial signs of student art is beginning to fill the campus.
Staff and students are also focusing on the development of social and emotional wellness of each scholar. This is evidenced through the implementation of a Character Counts Program, a strong PBIS plan and implementation of Circles-just in a socially distanced manner.
Beginning of Year Celebrations:
Upcoming Pelican Activities:
Thank you for your support and cooperation as we get this school started. We look forward to working together as a team. By having a strong family/school partnership we will be able to accomplish great things this school year. As your principal I ask that you support the following:
Pinellas County Schools Referendum benefits teachers and students
The Pinellas County Schools Referendum is up for renewal. The Referendum boosts reading, art and music programs, provides up-to-date technology and textbooks, and helps recruit and retain quality teachers. Voters have supported the Referendum every four years since its initial approval in 2004. An independent citizens committee oversees Referendum spending to ensure money is spent as voters intended. Every penny of the funding benefits Pinellas teachers and students. For more information, please visit www.pcsb.org/referendum
Mrs. Del Duca
