From the Plank South Leadership Team

Plank South Families,


It has been so great seeing so many of you at Parent-Teacher Conferences! A reminder that we have one more early dismissal day on Thursday, March 21. Buses will leave at 11:20am, so please be sure there is a parent/guardian home to get your child(ren) off the bus! Additionally, there is no school on Friday, March 22nd.


One new thing to have on your radar is the upcoming Plank South Spring Dance on April 5th. You should get a hard copy home with your child, but the flyer is right below with all the key information. Spots may be limited, so please turn in the order form by Wednesday, March 27th.


This week is our 40th Annual Science Fair! We could still use some more help during the day on Wednesday! Please use this link to sign up which includes specific setup times by grade level- Thank you so much for your help! We could not do this without you!


Your Plank South Leadership Team,

Scott Wilcox & Jen Sullivan

Community Arts Day!!!

Community Arts Day is coming up on Saturday, April 6th and you'll find lots of flyers below, including one to sign up for the talent show. Community Arts Day only works because of the amazing volunteers who help out so here is a link for those of you who can help volunteer. One easy way to help out is to donate a prepackaged baked good and drop it off at Plank South on 4/4 or 4/5. That option is the last one at this link. Thanks!

Flyers, Flyers, Flyers!
