Plymouth Community School Corportation
We hope all of our Menominee families have a safe and enjoyable summer. Below is the summer newsletter that will be mailed out at the end of June/early July.
Thursday, May 30 is the last day of school for elementary, Riverside, and Lincoln students. (PHS students will be in session on Friday.) We'd like to thank all of our Menominee families for your involvement and support this school year.
The Plymouth Public Library offers a summer reading program as well as special activities each week to keep your children reading and entertained. Enrollment for the summer reading program begins Friday, May 31.
HAVE A FUN AND SAFE SUMMER VACATION!
Studies show that children who read over the summer continue to strengthen their reading skills and have a smoother transition into the next school year. To encourage summer reading, the Indiana Department of Education is sponsoring the Hoosier Family of Readers Literacy Initiative. This program provides over 3,000 free books that can be read online.

Hats off to 1st-grader Ryan Tremaine and 2nd-grader Hunter Warren. Both boys were winners in the Tri Kappa Spring Art Show, which displayed original artwork created by PCSC students. Judges from the Heartland Artists selected 3 winners from each elementary grade level. We're proud of you boys!
Menominee's annual Field Day will be Tuesday, May 28. Grades K, 1, and 2 will enjoy the activities from 9:00-10:30. Grades 3 and 4 will participate from 1:00-2:30. Of course, lots of volunteers will be needed to make this a successful day. If you or someone you know can help out, please complete and return the form below. If you have any questions, contact Mr. Kershner at email@example.com.
Grandpersons' Day was recently celebrated by our Menominee 2nd graders and their special guests. A highlight of the afternoon was Grandpersons' Show-and-Tell, during which the visitors shared stories or items from the past. Reading favorite books, playing a fun math game, and meeting Flat Stanley were some of the other activities that rounded out the afternoon. Thank you to all the grandpersons for making this a fun and educational experience for our students.
Congratulations to 2nd-grader Ellie Jones and 4th-grader Makayla Wilson for being Menominee's winning authors in the Young Authors' Conference writing contest. Ellie and Makayla were guests at the Young Authors' Conference in Bremen, featuring children's author Michelle Houts. The girls also received a free book, a certificate, and a ribbon for their winning entries. Nice work, Ellie and Makayla!
After learning about the motion of objects when acted upon by force, the 2nd grade students participated in an egg drop. Using their knowledge and imagination, the students created packages they hoped would protect a raw egg when dropped from a ladder truck. A number of eggs did survive the fall! Many thanks to the Plymouth Fire Department for making this project possible.
