Dear Plain Local Community,
Thank you! Those two simple words never seem like enough but are so important to express. I would like to personally express my thanks to the entire Plain Local community for your support and encouragement as we started the 2021-2022 school year. Our students are thriving in and out of the classroom and I am so proud to see all of their accomplishments, I hope you take some time to read about all of the amazing things going on in our buildings across the Plain Local district.
I am excited for families to learn more about the Elementary and Secondary Relief Fund, also known as “ESSER” which was created by the federal government to provide emergency relief funds to address the impact that COVID-19 has had, and continues to have, on elementary and secondary schools across the nation. Please review page 20 of the most recent issue of the Plain Paper, for more information on these emergency funds and how they are being utilized in Plain Local to address learning loss and gaps due to pandemic now through 2024.
As I travel across the district visit classrooms and attend events, I am excited about our growth and progress for the future. We are working to get back to as much normalcy as we can for our students. We are amidst a successful fall sports season, we have many Arts performances scheduled starting in October and our teachers are constantly working to be creative to make sure our students are safe but also still have amazing learning opportunities.
In closing, it is my honor to serve Plain Local. I continuously tell your story and share examples of excellence in Plain. My children are receiving a world-class education from staff that wake up every day and choose to show up for the students in Plain Local, I am proud to live and raise my family in this township.
