On behalf of myself and the entire faculty at Plainfield Memorial School, it is my honor to welcome you to the school year. I look forward to working collaboratively with each family. I am committed to creating a partnership with you to ensure the success of your child. Communication with families is so very important and I encourage you to contact me with any questions or needs you may encounter.

This year improving students’ attendance is a priority for all of us at Plainfield Memorial School. Research shows that regular attendance is the single most important factor in school success. The State of Connecticut has a stringent attendance policy that we are required to monitor and oversee. We ask that you encourage your child to come to school every day on time. We ask that all families assist us with the goal to reduce the number of absences our students have.

At Plainfield Memorial School teachers meet weekly as a team to develop lessons, assignments and assessments that align with the expectations the Board of Education and the State of Connecticut puts before us. Daily our students Read to Learn in literature, science, social studies and mathematics.

Please remind your child to do his/her best in everything and to show respect to everyone. At PMS, we promote “Cougar P.R.I.D.E.” and students are acknowledged for showing Perseverance, Respect, Independence, Dependability and Excellence. Through the use of Cougar Paws, we recognize students who follow our school-wide expectations.

Your Partner in Education,

Natasha Hutchinson
