From the Principal

Dear Plumbrook Families:

I can’t believe that we are already saying goodbye to October and beautiful colored leaves and welcoming in November’s cool weather and late fall festivities!

Let me start this newsletter by thanking the PEP group for organizing and running FunD Run and the Boo Bash! Great fun was had by children and parents alike. 

As always I want to thank you our many families and our fabulous staff and teachers for the gift of time and resources. I feel truly amazed and thankful to be a part of the Plumbrook community.

Please take a few minutes to read the Newsletter.
