Elementary school: Schools are closed March 9

Wednesday, March 7, 2018 by The Press in School

School will be closed March 9 for an Act 80 day.


Sheckler Home and School will hold its monthly meeting 6:30 p.m. March 14 in the school library. All parents are invited and encouraged to attend.

Home and School is looking for your help. They are in need of committee volunteers to assist in organizing events and activities that are held throughout the year for the students of Sheckler. There are also board positions that will need to be filled for the upcoming school year. Elections for those positions will be held in May.

Without your help, a lot of these events and Sheckler Home and School traditions for students might end up having to be discontinued. Please consider getting involved and working with other parents on keeping these special Home and School traditions going for future generations to come. You need to have your clearances to hold an executive board position or serve on a committee.

This organization still holds a dear place in my heart, as I was a board member and volunteer for many years, and I still carry on the friendships with other parents made during those years. It’s a wonderful organization to become involved in for our kids and our school.


The chocolate bar fundraiser will end March 12, and all money is due on any boxes you have sold or signed out.

Special thanks to these businesses for their donations for prizes that can be earned based on sales: Catty Pizza, Roxy Theatre, Santa Fe Taco, J’s Steaks and Subs, The Bacon Strip, Pies On Pizzeria, Gertrude Hawk Chocolates and Chick-fil-A. Their generosity is greatly appreciated.
