A Message from our Principal

Third graders are totally finished with PSSA’s.  Everyone did such a wonderful job.  Fourth grade has Science on Monday and Tuesday and then they are finished!

Please look for the new procedures for the car line next year. These were sent home this week.  Please read the letter carefully.  You only need a number if you are picking up your child regularly.  We are trying to get a head start on the numbers now to save time in the beginning of the year. 

This Sunday is Earth Day so help your child recognize simple ways they can help the Earth. 

Please pay special attention to information coming home from classroom teachers.  As May approaches, we are looking at many field trips and special activities. 

Thank you for everything you do for your child.
