    Message from Ms. Freemantle

    What an amazing September it has been at Plowman’s! We reconnected with students and families and have

    participated in many events and activities already. I wanted to thank all families for their patience and

    randomly drawn and they will have a special lunch with Ms. Freemantle in her office  Our September

    winners were Victoria and Samir.

    PLOWMAN’S UPDATED MISSION, VISION, AND VALUES Last year our School Success Committee used input and feedback from

    staff, students, and parents to update our Mission Statement, Vision

    Statement, and our Values to reflect Plowman’s Park currently and our

    dedication and commitment to our students and community. You will see

    and hear our new statements and values in our communications, through

    our students that have been talking about them in class, and through

    school-wide announcements. Some of our students created an incredible video of our Mission, Vision, and

    Values which can be viewed on Plowman’s YouTube page at: or by going directly to:

    Plowman’s Mission Statement is: At Plowman’s Park, we inspire success

    and hope by empowering our community to strive for personal excellence.


    Plowman’s Vision Statement is: Through hope, inclusion and nurturing a growth

    mindset, we help develop the perseverance, resiliency and collaborative skills our

    learning community needs to embrace new challenges.
