January is School Director Recognition Month in Pennsylvania, and the district did not disappoint during the Jan. 14 school board meeting.
Each of the three schools in the district prepared a presentation as a way to thank the directors. The presentations were largely created by the students to acknowledge the advantages and opportunities school board members help provide.

Despite the frigid temperatures, the bees were buzzing over at Catasauqua Middle School for the annual spelling competition Jan. 9.
The whole school gathered to watch 37 students of various grades compete in front of a panel of three judges. The participating students were seated on the court of the gymnasium, while the other students filled the bleachers with a special section provided for parents. The tension in the crowd touched the gym’s ceiling as the program’s organizer, David Troxell, shuffled his papers and announced the first word — bobcat.
Are you still helping to turn trash into cash for Sheckler Elementary? If you are, that’s great and much appreciated! If not, you can do so with a few easy steps.
Since Sheckler no longer accepts cut-out Box Tops, all you will need to do is download the Box Tops app on your phone, follow the directions and be sure to designate Sheckler as your school when installing the app.
Then all you’ll need to do is scan your shopping receipts to help those Box Tops add up to benefit the students.

At the Catasauqua Area School District Board of Education meeting Jan. 14, members nominated Shawn McGinley to fill the empty seat. He took his oath of office and enjoyed his first meeting as a school board member.
