Dear Pennridge community,

The School Board met on Monday, January 23. I would like to bring you up to date on a few items that were discussed:

     As January is School Board Appreciation month, I had the pleasure of recognizing our Board members for their hard work and dedication. We also recognized students and staff for their special accomplishments. Read More.

     The Board approved our school calendar for 2017-18. Based on some comments I have heard, most people are pleased with the changes we have made. Read More.

     The Board approved a four-day summer theater camp for students in grades 6-8 and incoming freshmen.The camp experience will provide a positive and fun environment for students to build musicianship, acting skills and dancing skills (in both solo and ensemble settings). The dates of the camp are from July 24 to July 27, 9:00 AM - 3:30 PM, at Central Middle School.

     The Board approved for first reading three policy revisions: No. 247 - Hazing: No. 810.2 - Transportation - Video/Audio Recording; and No. 827 - Conflict of Interest. After further discussion, these policies will be up for approval at a later meeting. View the Policies.

As always, please send me an email if you have any questions.
