Greetings North Plains Families!


Classes are settled, schedules changed, and we are finally getting some normality to the year!

Thank you to everyone for your patience and understanding as we worked through moving kids and classes around. Many of you are anxious to meet your child's new teacher and I've been working with them to find a time. Mrs. Bethune will be available next Thursday, Oct. 10, from 3:30 - 5 PM. Ms. Job and Mr. Keenan will be here Tuesday, Oct. 8 from 3:30 - 5PM. Feel free to come by if you have one of these teachers!
