School District Lead Testing in Drinking Water

On June 21-24, 2016, Fulmont Laboratory & Consultants took water samples from all drinking fountains and kitchen faucets in the district used for potable water. The samples were tested for lead and the results were sent to the district on August 16, 2016.

Five sample points were above the lead levels of 15 parts per billion allowed by the state. Of those five sample points, three fixtures were replaced and two were removed.

On September 12, 2016, Fulmont Laboratory & Consultants returned and resampled the three sample points that were replaced. The results were sent to the district on September 27, with two of the sites passing. The third site was resampled on September 28 and additional remediation will be undertaken if needed when results are received.

Further sampling took place at Pleasant and Glebe on September 28; Warren and Jansen on September 29; Knox Junior High on October 5; and JHS on October 6. If any of the test results come back non-compliant, the district will perform remediation as required.

All test results will be posted on the district website as soon as possible.

All the Colors of the Rainbow

All the Colors of the Rainbow

During a September 12 assembly, Glebe students learned about an upcoming Color Run fundraiser sponsored by the Johnstown Elementary PTA.  Mrs. North modeled the prizes the students can earn depending on how much they raise.

The Color-Run will take place on Saturday, October 15; registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the race kicks-off at 10 a.m. Pledge envelopes were sent home with elementary students in all three buildings today and are due back by September 26

The Color-A-Thon race fundraiser will help support the Johnstown Elementary PTA (JEPTA), which in turns provides programming in all three of our elementary buildings. Color-A-Thon is a fun event for students and adults of all ages. Students get donations from friends and families, earn rewards according to the amount of money they raise and then get to participate in a 3k race/walk that ends in a blast of color…the Color-A-Thon event!  Questions? Contact JEPTAColorRun@gmail.com
