Back to school season is nearly upon us as we march toward Labor Day and the official end of summer once again. The carefree days of summer leisure are gone; the pools close; the days get shorter; and we turn our attention to autumn when the leaves change colors and start to fall.

Welcome back, teachers, students and faculty. The first day of the 2017-18 school year is Aug. 28. Catasauqua High School doors open 7:36 a.m., and school begins 7:44 a.m. Students will be dismissed 2:35 p.m.

Teachers, do you have a bright idea to spark your students’ interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM)? PPL would like to provide the funding power to bring that idea to life.

The PPL Empowering Educators program is designed to help K-12 teachers provide hands-on learning opportunities to enhance the classroom experience. Through these competitive grants, teachers can receive $1,000 in funding for educational projects, such as science fairs, energy conservation projects, renewable energy demonstrations and math competitions.

School Bus Association

Watch out for school students

Across Pennsylvania, students are returning to class, which means the roads become a little more crowded. This school year, over 1.5 million children will be transported over 400,000 miles in those familiar black and yellow school buses. The Pennsylvania School Bus Association is asking motorists to pay extra attention as school buses ride their daily routes.
