    meaning of Plus in the sentence

    Hi, I have a doubt with the plus in a sentence.

    I wrote an email saying " ... i have only one more week of work at school. ... anyway I am not traveling to Rio I am staying in my city ( for vacations ).

    and the answer to that was: ... " the semester is coming to an end and it is a lot of work and papers to grade. But I like this time of year. The students seems to give their best a this time. Plus we are getting ready to go to the caribbean and I am excited about that . .."

    I didnīt take the word Plus here as just mentioning an addictional fact.
    another meaning: We i the sentence means that the writer is going with someone else , not the reader it is not an invitation.

    Re: meaning of Plus in the sentence

    Your correspondent is expressing his pleasure that the semester is ending, that at this time of year students seem to give their best, and that he (and someone - his wife/girlfriend/family/significant other) are going on holiday to the Caribbean.

    It is NOT an invitation!
