The school will reopen Tuesday, Nov. 27.

I hope students and their families all have a happy Thanksgiving.

During the Thanksgiving break, be sure to unwind and spend quality time with family and friends.


The CMS-PTF Spirit Dance will be held 7 p.m. Nov. 30 in the school cafeteria.

The Press apologizes for incorrectly publishing the date of the dance in last week's edition.

Teachers attend conference

Lehigh Valley Christian High School survived Hurricane Sandy relatively unscathed. Our building, on Howertown Road in Catasauqua, never lost electricity, heat or Internet service, nor was there any flooding. Some of the aluminum facing on the front top of the building got ripped off or bent back, but that is the only damage we could find. We are very grateful.

As a result of Sandy, we had to make some calendar changes. The fall athletic awards night has been rescheduled for tonight, Thursday, Nov. 15.

Work to begin on Hokey span

The demolition of the Hokendauqua-North Catasauqua Bridge, followed by construction of the new bridge which runs across the Lehigh River, is only a few weeks away.

Motorists will soon reach their destination via the Coplay-Northampton Bridge, the Pine Street Bridge connecting West Catasauqua in Whitehall Township, and further south using bridges linking portions of Whitehall to Race Street in Catasauqua.

Back to normal at the middle school

After a long week of power outages and trees and debris found throughout Catasauqua due to damaging effects of Hurricane Sandy, it is back to school this week for school district students.

The storm caused district offices and schools to close Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday last week and led to two-hour delays Thursday and Friday.


Report cards will be distributed to CMS students today. Good luck to all students!


Parent-teacher conferences will be held Nov. 14, 15, 16, 19 and 20.
