If you find that your child is nervous about their upcoming test(s), please remind them that they have everything they need to be amazing! Their teachers have already prepared them with the knowledge they need, so all they need to do is relax and put forth their best effort!!
Two Schools - One Book.....ROUND TWO!!!
Nightly chapters will be posted on our school's webpage and on Twitter! If you are not able to read with your child, I would encourage you to have them tune in and listen to one of our amazing teachers read the nightly reading for them!
Miles of Smiles
Please be on the lookout for paperwork coming home with your child that will give you more information on this awesome program!

ABC's to the end of the Year

A Message from Mrs. Thompson
- this is a copy of the email that was sent to all parents on March 17th -
I want to first take this opportunity to THANK YOU for allowing me to be a small part of your child's educational career while at Plainview Elementary School. I do, however, want to let you know that I will be leaving Plainview at the end of the summer.
I will miss each and every one of the students that I have met in my time here, and I will not forget the lessons that they have taught me! I have learned true dedication watching our sixth grade boys head straight from basketball practice in one gym to wrestling in another. I have learned perseverance watching kindergarteners learn to find the proper keys on the keyboard week after week so they can type their name. I have learned patience watching third grade students go through fluency work while continuing to show amazing growth. And most importantly, I have learned just how much a smile can brighten a day - from every single student when they walk through the doors (whether it's a smile in their eyes, or now on their mouth).
I will miss them all, but my time here is NOT DONE YET! We are going to have an AMAZING 4th quarter!! I can not wait to celebrate their growth with them as we finish this school year!! We've got over 45 school days to ROCK - and I'm ready to celebrate their accomplishments along with you.
