Please remember to continue sending in your Box Tops for Education to your child's classroom. Redeeming these box tops helps purchase items for the school. Collecting them also helps your student's class come out on top during the contest for the second submission of Box Tops, running in to March. Every top you submit turns trash into cash for your childs school.
School will be closed for students on Dec. 3.

Governor Tom Corbett announced Nov. 9 PennDOT is launching two voluntary programs aimed at saving the lives of Pennsylvanians in emergency situations – the Yellow Dot and Emergency Contact Information programs.
"Both of these programs speak for people when they can't speak for themselves, so medical concerns can be addressed and contacts can be reached as quickly as possible," Corbett said. "When someone is in a crash or they find themselves in an emergency situation, it's critical that emergency responders quickly find out as much as they can about the victim."
