Class of 1966 celebrates 70th birthdays

Wednesday, September 26, 2018 by PAUL CMIL in School

Tunes from the late 1960s chased kids out of North Catasauqua William J. Albert Memorial Park when members of Catasauqua High School’s Class of 1966 — the school’s largest class — celebrated their 70th birthdays Sept. 15.

Brenda (Schenkel) Henning is the organizer for these special class events.

“We had a party for our 50th anniversary, and we celebrated when everyone turned 66,” she said.

Henning thinks this is the most active CHS class. Some of the other classes of the high school jump into the celebration.

Roughies Report: iPads may need updating

Wednesday, September 19, 2018 by The Press in School

From time to time, it is essential students run software updates on their iPads in order for the applications to run smoothly. This process is very easy to do. In order to update your iPad to the most current software settings, go to Settings, General, then Software Update. Download and install the update.

If your iPad is not charged to at least 50 percent, the update will not run unless your iPad is plugged into a charger.

If you are having trouble updating your iPad at home, reach out to Mrs. Campbell in the library.
