Note from Mrs. Hamm

The Physical Education classes will be going outside as long as the weather is nice. We will be working on many skills that involve running, kicking, jumping etc. Students must wear appropriate shoes on PE days. Flip flops and sandals make it hard for them to participate at their full ability. The Physical Education schedule can be found below. Thank you.

Miles of Smiles

On September 17th, 2020, North Central District Health Department (NCDHD) will offer the Miles of Smiles program in Plainview Elementary School. Miles of Smiles is a school-based fluoride dental program, available to preschool, elementary and middle school students within the nine county health district.

This program is offered to ALL children! A non-required $15 donation is asked to help offset the cost, but there is no fee to participate in the program. Children will not be denied services due to inability to provide a donation.

For more information about the Miles of Smiles program, contact Sara Twibell, Miles of Smiles Coordinator for NCDHD at (402) 336-2406.
