    Welcome to another promising year, here in Plainville! 
     
    I am proud to lead a department of highly qualified professionals who go 'over and above' expectations to provide exemplary services to the students of Plainville.  Our continuum of services ensure that every student is educated in the least restrictive environment possible.

    As always, I would like to invite all of you to participate in our monthly Special Education PAC meetings (please see the link below).  They start at 7 pm on the dates listed under "upcoming events".  They will also be mentioned in the Principals' weekly notices.  These meetings are a good way to gain information from invited school personnel, outside presenters, and other parents.
     
    Once again, welcome to another school year and I look forward to working with you all as we strive for continued success!
