Voyager Express Newsletter - September 13, 2019
We could not be more proud of two PPS students who were praised at Tuesday's Select Board meeting for their swift and heroic actions that saved the lives of their neighbors.
Ayden and Chayce demonstrated true courage and compassion when they noticed their neighbor's home was on fire. They sprung into action, immediately called 911, and ran next door to shout and bang on windows in order to wake their sleeping neighbors, ultimately saving their lives.
This week the Mello brothers received certifications of honor from the Fire Department, including a coveted patch and challenge coin, as well as certifications from the state Legislature, the governor and the Select Board.
Exceptional job, Ayden and Chayce! Thank you for your quick thinking and bravery. You are true heroes.

Global Learning Program
We're looking for host families to take part in our global learning exchange program! We are preparing to welcome students from Collegio San Carlo in Milan, Italy for short immersion visits this October and November.
The goal of the program is for students and families to engage in a one-to-one exchange model - to have the same families reciprocate hosting on each side. In spring 2020, Plymouth students will have the opportunity to study in Milan.
The opportunity is currently available to PPS students in grades 8, 10, & 11.
