A Message from our Principal

This weather is unbelievable!  It’s hard to tell exactly what season it is.  

When you are dropping your children off, please do not pass on the left.  It is a dangerous practice.  This includes early morning rehearsal drop offs in the front of the school. 

Thank you for all those who participated and/or came out to the Science Fair this week.  It was a huge success!

We had an amazing assembly on Thursday where we saw true Native American dancers.  This is in line with our school focus of respecting everyone’s culture and uniqueness.   

We will be doing fun reading activities on 3/1 and 3/2 to celebrate “Read Across America.”  Please make sure you have turned in your Book Swap information!  Please contact your child’s teacher if you need the forms again.  

The PSSA’s will begin on 4/9 for 3rd and 4th grades.  They will last for three weeks for fourth graders (ELA, Math, and Science) but only two weeks for third graders (ELA and Math).  We will only be testing for two or three days each week.  Please make sure your children are in school and well rested.  More information will be coming within the next few weeks. 

Thank you for your constant support.
