Plymouth-Canton Community Schools is committed to continuous performance improvement. Later this fall, P-CCS will embark on a process of self-study, external review, feedback and improvement through a formal System Assessment. This important undertaking ensures our District efforts support high levels of student achievement for all students, and will allow us to aggressively address areas of opportunity for growth and improvement. For more information on the process, please see the attached letter from Dr. Michael Meissen, superintendent, and Dr.

Crossing Guards Needed

Plymouth-Canton Community Schools needs Crossing Guards for Bentley, Hoben, and Workman Elementary Schools. Crossing Guard substitutes are also needed district wide.

Parents, grandparents, college students (anyone 18 or older) can apply online via the Employment section of the Plymouth-Canton Community Schools web site:

Plymouth-Canton Community Schools was notified by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation that 21 of our high school seniors have qualified as Semifinalists for the competition. These 21 students are part of an elite 16,000 students nationwide who will now compete for 8,000 scholarships worth $35 million to be offered next spring. To be considered for a Merit Scholarship award, semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the finalist level. P-CCS is very proud of these students!

During the next few weeks P-CCS students will take tests called Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®). We give students MAP tests to determine your child’s instructional level and to measure academic growth throughout the school year. From year to year we also test in the areas of reading, math, and science. Your child will take the tests on a computer.

Dr. Meissen Welcomes Students Back to School

Superintendent Dr. Michael Meissen welcomed students back to school on Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2013. Dr. Meissen said, “The new school year always delivers both excitement and anticipation. I had the honor of greeting students making that milestone leap from elementary to middle school. I also witnessed bright-eyed kindergarteners begin their student careers with confidence, and marveled at the unique buzz and energy of the Park and its 6,000 plus students. What an amazing gift and responsibility we have to educate and help shape these young minds and futures.
