Welcome to Plattin Primary!  My name is Tina Basler and I have been blessed to call Plattin Primary home since starting in 1999 as a teacher and then becoming principal in 2005. We have an amazing community at R-VII and an even better school district!  Staffed with teachers and staff members that truly care about your children, you will quickly recognize that your children become “our children” upon the first day of attendance. Our building places a priority on teaching the whole child.  Character education is just as important as the academic education of your child.  Values of responsibility, honesty, respect and friendship are reinforced daily within our walls. “Be a Better Bystander” is a phrase that you will hear your child using regularly when they notice a need of others and step up to take action.  On the academic side, our teachers are quick to identify the strengths and weaknesses of each child and work to educate each child at his/her level. Active engagement, small group instruction and individualized attention are evident in every classroom, every day.   There are multiple ways for parents to become involved in their child’s education.  You can follow us via Twitter at @PlattinPrimary and through our hashtag #plattinrocks.  Our teachers also use a classroom app called Seesaw to give you a glimpse into their classrooms.  It’s a great way to stay connected to the teachers and your child’s learning! Opportunities for additional involvement include the R-VII Parent Teacher Organization (PTO),  the Parent Volunteer Program, and our WatchDOG Program. I encourage you to find ways that you can become involved with our school community. I promise you that it will be rewarding for you and our students! Our goal is always to make sure that your child knows he/she is entering a loving, safe environment where he/she will be loved, respected and challenged to reach his/her fullest potential.  Our hope is that your child will come home with a love of school and the enthusiasm to learn all that lies ahead. I look forward to working with you and please don’t hesitate to contact me in regards to your child’s education at Plattin Primary.


 Mrs. Tina Basler, Principal
