September Update: #BetterTogether
Greetings Plumb Community,
I am thrilled to report that the 2019-2020 school year is off to a strong start at Plumb Elementary. Scholars and staff have been working together to create positive learning environments with a focus on both academics and personal growth. This is evidenced through engagement in focused instruction and learning. 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-ask your child about their talking piece. All 4th and 5th grade scholars have participated in achievement assemblies with me and during these assemblies we focused and prioritized what it means to be a Plumb Pelican.

Thank you for a strong start. We are on track to make gains and meet goals, however this will take team work and collaboration. 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:
