Since non-resident students can now attend Plymouth Community School Corporation (PCSC) with no tuition, PCSC will host the annual Kindergarten Round-up on April 12, 2012 in all Plymouth Elementary Schools. Parents are invited to bring their children to Plymouth.
Resident parents should attend their specific school district round-up. Non-resident parents may attend the round-up at any of the four Plymouth Elementary Schools; however, their child may be placed at another Plymouth School to balance class size. Parents interested in having their student(s) attend Washington Discovery Academy need to attend the kindergarten round-up at Washington Elementary.
There will be two sessions. Parents and children need only attend one session. The 1st session is at 1:30 p.m. The 2nd session is at 6:00 p.m. Each session should last no longer than one hour.
Please bring an original copy of your child’s birth certificate, immunization records, and a social security number. The schools will make copies of the originals. For Spanish speaking kindergartners and parents, interpreters will be available. During the hour-long round-up, parents will meet with administrators and fill out registration forms; children will meet with kindergarten teachers for screening.
In order to be eligible for Kindergarten Round-Up this year, your child needs to be 5 years old on or before August 1, 2012.
For those unsure of which building their child will attend, please call the transportation department at 574-936-3169.
Congratulations to the Plymouth High School Winter Performance Ensemble. The group competed in the Indiana Percussion Association's State Prelims at Avon High School last Saturday. Plymouth placed 1st in Visual Performance (out of 14 schools in their round) and 3rd place overall. This qualified Plymouth to advance to the State Finals this coming weekend at Ben Davis H.S.
Because of their Top 3 performance at prelims, Plymouth was given preferential "seeding" at the state finals and will perform at the end of the event.
Plymouth was recently promoted from Class 2A to Class A and was the only school that was promoted this season that also made it into the state finals in their new and harder class! Good luck to the Plymouth Winter Performance Ensemble as they head to state finals this weekend!

Friday, March 16, 2012, was a day of celebration for the eighth grade students at Lincoln Junior High School. Last November, the students completed a unit of learning about cyber bullying and bullying through a website called the Bullying Academy.org. The students took a pre-test, followed by lessons that included text and videos, and finally took a post-test on their understanding of bullying and cyber bullying. The scores on the post-test put the Lincoln students in the number one spot in the United States of America. The Lincoln students were treated to a pizza party, a bottle of water, a trophy, and a celebration ceremony.
Dr. Tony Bennett, the Superintendent of Public Instruction, was the guest speaker for the event. Dr. Bennett congratulated the students for being technology leaders in the State of Indiana and at the highest level in United States.
Dr. Bennett presented a proclamation from Governor Daniels stating that March 11-16, 2012 has been set aside to honor the eighth grade class at Lincoln Junior High School for their excellent technology skills. Dr. Bennett also presented a trophy to Mr. Funston, principal.
Congratulations to all eighth grade students!
