Weekly Updates

THIS FRIDAY 3/15: Schnecksville Elementary's Kindergarten Registration! 

THIS FRIDAY 3/15: Current Kindergarteners ONLY have NO SCHOOL on this day, due to Kindergarten Registration. 

A NOTE FROM MRS. DOPERA REGARDING ATTENDANCE: Regular attendance at school is an important part of every student’s success and is necessary to gain the greatest benefit from the educational experience. Students who are frequently absent from school miss direct instruction and regular contact with their teachers. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania law and School Board policy require regular daily attendance.  When absences accumulate, it may ultimately result in academic difficulty. Based on your student’s attendance, you may receive attendance letters due to unlawful or excessive absences. These letters are sent out monthly, as appropriate, based on a student’s current attendance.

Coming to Schnecksville Elementary on Wednesday April 3rd!  Erika Lodice, Author of the High Flyers series of books! Your student should have brought home forms regarding this author visit.

The 7th Annual Parkland Community Resource Fair will be taking place on April 6th from 9:00am to noon in the Parkland High School cafeteria. This is a free event and all are welcome. Numerous community service agencies will be present to provide information on the programs they offer, volunteer opportunities, and even some employment options. Anyone who attends is sure to learn something of value for either themselves, family members, friends, neighbors, or students!
