A Message from our Principal

The third and fourth graders did a great job this week on the PSSA’s.  English Language Arts testing is finished!  We are starting Math on Monday, 4.16.  It will only last two days.  Please remember, if your child is late to school, they will not be allowed in the classroom if the test has started. 

At the end of April, we will send out information for next year’s dismissal procedures for the car line.  If you plan to pick your child up from school at least four times per month, you will be assigned a new number for next year.  We will also be asking you to supply the names of people who could pick your child up if you can’t.  Please look out for this information. 

As the summer approaches, please feel free to reach out to your child’s teacher about ways your child can keep his/her skills fresh.  Remember, the power of reading every day is incredible!

Thank you for all you do.
