Dear Plumbrook Families:

This year seems to be flying past. November has been a busy month filled with many events: Voting Day - Teacher Professional Development, Parent-Teacher Conferences, the first school break of the year – Thanksgiving and the beginning of a very special time of year – the holiday season!

Thank you… PEP for organizing the many activities that bring our community together.  December is a busy month for PEP with the Bagel Days, Santa Holiday Movie Night, and the Santa Shop. Please contact the PEP committee if you have time to help with these activities.

Thank you… Mrs. Melling and teachers for organizing and running the successful Yankee Candle Fund Raiser, and thank you parents for participating in this fund raiser!  The money will be used to help our school provide instructional resources for our students. 

Thank you… Mrs. Pacifico and parent volunteers for organizing, running, and supporting a successful Book Fair.

Thank you… Ms. Peacock and teachers for organizing and running the November is Numbers Month. This was a fun in school activity that promoted number sense for all our students. 

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.
