     Parents, Guardians, students and community of Plantation.

    Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year. Our theme for this year is “Our staff goes above, and our students go beyond.

     As I enter my fourth year as your principal, I’m excited about this school year.  Plantation earned a “C” for the 2017-2018, moving up from a “D”.  I am celebrating our achievement as our teachers and students worked hard to make this happen.  However, I want our stakeholders to know that we are striving for excellence and aiming to keep moving up.  My goal is to make Plantation Elementary an “A” school.

    I am honored that you choose to entrust your child to my staff and I, because we know in this time you have a choice on where you can send your child to school. 

    Plantation is a Sprouting Stem Museum Magnet; our students engage in project-based learning on various themes throughout the year.  These projects culminate in a Museum Night where students can showcase their projects.  I’m looking forward to seeing everyone during this event.

    This year the district is laser focus on safety.  We are asking for your patience in entering and exiting the school. Our one point of entry has been installed with buzzers.   Everyone must enter and exit the building through the one point of entry.  We will also be having monthly lock down drills in addition to our fire drills.

    Communication is very important to us, so feel free to contact your child’s teacher or administration with any concerns.

    Looking forward to an awesome school year with you.   Follow us on twitter, facebook and Instagram.
