Fall 30-Day Attendance Challenge
You may have wondered: What exactly is the 30-Day Challenge?

Please allow us to explain how it worked:

1.    Your child(ren) make the greatest effort/commitment to attend school for 30 straight days.

2.    When the 30 days are up, the office gathered a report of those students who had perfect attendance.

3.    Those eligible students received an incentive reward for completing a job well done.

4.    Your child(ren) are gaining many educational opportunities that will last a lifetime!!

These students who attended school regularly, have been shown to achieve at higher levels than students who do not have regular attendance. 

Students who meet the attendance challenge will have their names placed in a drawing, to win a package of prizes:

- Certificate for a free, small, Papa John's Pizza

- Free AppleBees Kids Meal

- Free bowling pass (Imperial Lanes, in Milton)

- Free Kids Slushey coupons

- PSA donated books from the book fair.

All School Walk

In an effort to stem the rise in childhood obesity, Penn State Hershey PRO Wellness Center with Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital has partnered with Kohl’s Department Store to create the program, Kohl’s Healthy Champions.  This program teaches children and families the importance of bringing healthy choices to life------starting with eating healthy and getting active.  Our first event as a Healthy Champion District will be the All School Walk on October 7, 2015, International Walk to (or at) School Day, a global movement bringing together millions of walkers from around the world to provide safe walking to (or at) school.

In addition, we will celebrate the Great  Apple Crunch on October 23, 2015, where we will highlight apples as a healthy fruit choice and make them available to classrooms that day for apple activities.
