A Message From Mrs. Hilburn:
Welcome to Plantation Park Elementary!! As the principal of Plantation Park Elementary, I have high expectations for every student that walks through our doors. With collaboration between the school and community there is no doubt we will experience success along the way. When you enter our school you can expect to see teachers using hands-on, differentiated instruction, displaying a caring attitude and providing a safe environment for your child. We strive to always have a positive attitude and believe that Every Student Matters, Every Moment Counts! By working together we WILL achieve academic excellence and help our students become leaders in this community. We look forward to partnering with you for the 2021-22 school year. Remember to check the website and out Facebook for upcoming events and current news about Plantation Park and its wonderful students, parents, and teachers! Teachers also send home Tuesday parent communication folders with your child’s papers, important notes, and behavior reports. Please look over this folder with your child each Tuesday and sign any important papers to return to school. You can also sign up for Illuminate Home Connect to receive daily updates about your child’s grades.
We have also set up a phone number for Plantation Park where you can receive text messages about important events at our school. If you would like to receive these text messages please send a text to (804) 212-1632 and text @ppark. Once you have done that, you will begin to receive text messages from our school.
We look forward to you partnering with us as we show "Pony Pride" daily by learning to use Positive Words, show Respectful Actions, take Individual Responsibility, have Daily Attendance, and Expect the BEST from all our boys and girls. As always we want to work with you to create an environment where our students feel safe and are excited about coming to school each day!
I look forward to hearing from you! Please do not hesitate to call if you have any questions!
