Isbister Families,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year at Isbister!  It is a great place to ‘bee’!

My name is Emily Hawthorne and I’m honored to be joining Isbister Elementary as Principal.  I live right here in Plymouth and attended P-CCS Kindergarten through 12th Grade.  I have been working in education for the past 10 years and have served as an Elementary Principal, Upper Elementary Principal, Intervention Specialist, and an elementary and middle school classroom Teacher.  I am thrilled to be back with P-CCS and joining the Isbister team.  I know I have big shoes to fill from Mr. Harrison, who retired last year after serving the Isbister community for 23 years!

Isbister Elementary is outstanding in many ways.  Our dedicated staff truly values the relationships we build with our families and our greater community.  We all work together to build a culture of learning that is a safe, positive, and nurturing and we maintain the highest expectations for our children and ourselves.  We are a team of dedicated learners, continuously improving ourselves to provide the best learning experience and engaging curriculum for your child.  This year we celebrate 50 years of learning opportunities at Isbister, since doors opened in 1968!

Isbister’s dedicated PTO volunteers their time and energy to provide incredible experiences for our Isbister family.   Our biggest fundraising event this year will be our Color Run, which will take place on September 28th and is an experience every Isbister child can participate in.   Please visit the Isbister PTO page to the left and see how you can get involved. 

Our entire staff can’t wait to welcome you back on Wednesday, August 29th from 6-7:30 PM for Open House. 

I look forward to working together for a successful school year. 

Your Partner in Education, 

Emily Hawthorne, Principal
