Dear Plumbrook Families:

Say Goodbye to September and Hello to October – Fabulous Fall in Michigan!

Thank you to our many families and the PEP group who have donated school supplies, paper, orange cones, yellow safety vest, and the gift of time…. And so much more.  The Plumbrook family is truly amazing in meeting the needs of our students and staff!  

The students, teachers, and staff have settled into the new school year. Expectations and routines have been established in all areas of learning: academics, social, and positive behaviors. We continue to work with our families in reinforcing the importance of a positive learning environment.  Please take a few minutes to read the Newsletter.
