Today is DAY 3


June Theme - June’s “T.A.K.E.S. P.R.I.D.E.” theme is “esteem building.”


Quote of the Day – This week’s quote is from Dr. Seuss.  As we enter the final full week of school, it is good to remember some advice from Dr. Seuss, “You have brains in your head.  You have feet in your shoes.  You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.  You’re on your own.  And you know what you know.  You are the guy who’ll decide where to go.”  This summer set your own goals, work hard, be kind and TAKE PRIDE in your accomplishments.


A message from Dr. Rattigan – Happy last day of school for the 2016/17 school year!  I hope you all had a rewarding year.  Thank you Pennridge staff for the role that each of you played to provide a quality educational experience for our students.  Thank you students for your initiative and dependability.  It was a joy to watch and learn of your many accomplishments in academics and service.  My best wishes to all of you for a happy, safe, fun and relaxing summer.  I look forward to another productive and successful year in 2017/18!
