A message from our head of school
Welcome to Homer A. Plessy Community School! We have so many exciting things to look forward to and are so happy you have chosen to take the journey with us.
The mission of Plessy School is to develop students who think critically and act responsibly as citizens. I am proud to say that we have a very talented staff of teachers including a music specialist and a visual arts specialist who will work each day to ensure our students are learning in a joyful and engaging environment. Through arts integration, project based learning, and the Reggio Emilia inspiration, our students are taught to think critically and act responsibly using student centered and student directed themes.
As we begin this new year, I’d like to call on each one of you to help us achieve the vision of Plessy. Each one of you has a talent that can be shared with the school. Whether it includes playing an instrument, creating beautiful works of art, or volunteering to be a reading buddy or playground monitor, each person can help to build an even stronger community school. Please take a few minutes to think about something you can do to make Plessy stronger.
I look forward to seeing all of you soon,
Joan E. Reilly
