A Message from our Principal

It looks like winter does not want to leave us!  Please continue to dress your children in hats, gloves, and winter jackets.

We are off from school 3/30 – 4/2 for Spring Break. It’s a great time to read with the family.  Enjoy.

Thank you for everyone who came out to Family Folk Dancing.  It was a lot of fun. 

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. 

Have a wonderful week.


A Message from Mrs. Ehmer

We are collecting for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society during the month of March. Your child will get a collection box to take home, we ask that children ask parents if they want to put their own money in the box.  Otherwise, we encourage students to do chores in exchange for money to put in the collection box.  All boxes are due at the end of March.
Thank you for your donations to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society!
