School News

Updated school year calendar

Last year the School Board voted to change the 2022-23 school year calendar. To accommodate two holidays – Yom Kippur on Oct. 5, 2022, and Eid celebrated on April 21 and 22, 2023.

Step It Up Fundraiser starting 9/20/22

One of Plymouth's most successful fundraisers will be starting next week on Tuesday. Students will receive information about the fundraiser and an email will go out to families with more information. We hope you consider helping us to raise money for our school!

Every Meal: Fighting Food Insecurity

We are excited to partner with Every Meal to offer a free weekend food program to all our students. 

Every Meal is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to fight child hunger through community and school partnerships. They strive to make a difference in children’s lives by focusing on food gaps like weekends, school breaks, and summer when they can’t receive food in school.

Icon bus

We have been monitoring the arrival of buses the first two weeks of school. We are now at a point where most buses are dropping students off at school in enough time for them to get to class by 9:20.

If a student's bus is late, they will be given a bus pass which will be excused.

Students who are in the building, late, and without a bus pass will be marked tardy. 

Stay tuned - there may be a change in breakfast procedure as well to ensure students are eating breakfast and getting to class on time. 

Armstrong and Cooper Events

We love to support our local high schools by attending events. It creates school spirit and a sense of community. With that said, both Armstrong and Cooper High Schools require elementary and middle school students to be accompanied by a paid adult at every event. Athletics and activities are not intended to be drop-off events for our elementary and middle school students. 

Hispanic Heritage Month September 15 - October 15

We believe the diversity in our school is one of our greatest strengths. Each month, we will highlight a culture represented in our schools. 

Hispanic Heritage Month starts this week. Students will be invited to create papel picados during advisory.

Students getting on a bus

I am happy to report that we currently have drivers to staff all transportation routes and busing to school activities. In addition, we believe we have hired enough staff to be able to cover our routes if our drivers call out sick or need to take extended leaves.
