We are here to help support students’ success in school.  Please feel free to contact either of us should you have any concerns regarding your child.

 Over the next couple of months, each fourth grade (4th) class will participate in a transition program that will allow us to get to know your child. We will meet with each class for four consecutive weeks. During this program, students will have the opportunity to get to know us and our role here at Plainfield Memorial School, as well participate in some team-building activities.

Here are the activities your child will be participating in (we don’t want to spoil the surprise for your child, so please be sure to ask them about the activities.


          Session #1   “Snowball” Game

          Session #2   M & M Activity (or Skittles activity depending on food allergies)

          Session #3   Cups & Strings Activity
