Plank North Elementary

Plank Road North School was opened in 1958 at 705 Plank Road. The building consists of three wings connected by a central hallway where the Main Office, Library and Cafeteria are located. Plank North students and teachers work with the Common Core Curriculum in ELA and Math.  Reading instruction in the Primary Grades relies on the development of foundational skills using a Balanced Literacy approach.  Students in Grades 3-5 work with the State's Reading Modules which are supplemented with Guided Reading and Writer's Workshop.  Math instruction (K-5) is supported through the use of Math Expressions which is a resource closely aligned with the Common Core Learning Standards. Students in grades K-5 participate in Physical Education classes, Art and Music instruction on a weekly basis. Band and Orchestra are offered with instrumental lessons beginning in 4th grade. Chorus is another option for students in grades 4 and 5.

We have a full service cafeteria that provides a daily hot lunch with a variety of ala carte options.

The Plank North PTSA is active and provides many services to the school.  This provides numerous opportunities for parents to volunteer their time, energy and expertise.

Plank Road North currently services students in Kindergarten (Full-day) through 5th grade.

Some fluctuation occurs from year to year, but our recent experience gives us some confidence to expect four sections, or classes at most of our grade levels.
