Dear parents and guardians,

The School Board met on Monday, January 22, 2018. I would like to share some important news from that meeting:

PCEF GRANTS: Twice a year, the Pennridge Community Education Foundation awards Classroom Innovation Grants to our teachers. The latest rounds of grants totaled just under $6,000, bringing PCEF’s total awarded since 2010 to nearly $30,000. See a list of this year’s grants

PENN CENTRAL LEADERSHIP: the Board approved a staffing agreement with the Bucks County Intermediate Unit to have Mr. Keith Godshall serve as Interim Principal at Penn Central Middle School until a replacement for Mr. Christian Temchatin is appointed.

The Board also approved my retirement effective June 30, 2018. The past five years have been a wonderful experience for me both professionally and personally. The staff at Pennridge, top to bottom, is second to none! Everything that has been accomplished during my tenure has been the result of incredible cooperation, hard work and a dedication to the students and taxpayers of the District. For that, I am most grateful.

The Board will work with the Bucks County Intermediate Unit to identify the best possible superintendent candidates and select the one who best fits the needs of the District. We will keep you informed every step of the way. I pledge to work with my successor for as long as necessary to ensure a smooth transition. In the meantime, I will continue to devote my energy to ensure the positive momentum we are experiencing on all fronts.

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