About Louis Toffolon School 

Louis Toffolon School is located in the northwestern corner of Plainville.  The school was built and opened in 1966.  The school was closed for two and a half years while it was being completely renovated and reopened in January of 2009.  The school has 23 classrooms (PreK to grade 5) and special use rooms including a library media center, cafeteria, gymnasium with a stage, music room, art room, band room, tutoring rooms, special education rooms and speech rooms.  The school is staffed by certified staff, non-certified staff and support personnel and typically serves about 360 students.  The school also houses a town-wide pre-kindergarten class that is a part of Plainville Early Learning Center.  A very active Parent Teacher Organization supports the school as well.

As with all Plainville curricula, our curricula are reviewed on a five year cycle.  The classes use a Reading Workshop model (Teachers' College Reading and Writing Project Units of Study) and hands on math approach (enVisions Math).  Instrumental music is available to students in grades four and five. 

Cultural arts events, field trips, community activities, family events and fund-raisers for non-profit agencies enrich the curricular offerings.  The DARE program, Student Council and Safety Patrol is also available to fifth graders.  Other notable activities from the past and present include: the Select Choir, Jazz Band, an art club, a fitness/running club, Curl Up and Read, Fall Fair, Prime Time Reading Night, and the Winter Extravaganza.

 The school follows a Positive Behavior Intervention Support Model.  Toffolon students follow the Toffolon ROARS which values respect, organization, active learning, responsibility and safety.

A SmartBoard, projector and a sound system in each classroom allow for integration of technology into the daily curriculum.  In addition to a computer lab for the school, fifth graders have their own Chromebooks, and all k-4 students have ample and daily access to the technology they need.

About Principal Logoyke

Mrs. Lynn Logoyke has been the principal of Toffolon School since 1997.  She believes that Toffolon School should be a place in which children and adults are inspired to be constant learners.  She believes in the importance of providing a safe and consistent environment for learners and one that provides those learners plenty of opportunity to develop independence, pride and expertise.  She sees Toffolon School as one that values high expectations in an environment that supports and values all learners.  She can be heard most days on the morning announcements reminding students to “be kind and respectful” and to “learn a lot!”

 Mrs. Logoyke lives with her husband who is an art teacher.  They have two dogs, Fergus who is a Scottish Terrier and Wally who they call a ‘bagel’ because he is a beagle/bassett hound mix.  Mrs. Logoyke loves reading, hiking, photography and traveling.  She has been fortunate to visit most of the U.S. states, many national parks, and many foreign countries including China, Japan, Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Belgium, The Netherlands, Czech Republic, Switzerland, England, Scotland and Iceland.
