Principal’s Corner

Dear Families,

We hope you enjoyed STEAM Night as much as we did. Check out the pictures on the District Website. It was wonderful to see so many families participating in this event.

The Awards Program will now be on the first Monday of each month at 9:10 a.m.  If your child is receiving an award, you will be notified.

The Someone Special Dance is scheduled for February 8th 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. Please make sure you return the RSVP and payment to school.

Please continue to read with your children and encourage them to complete the AR tests.  AR Night is scheduled for February 13th from 6-7 p.m.  The Johnstown Public Library will be hosting a Moon Walk at PA during the AR Night. We are at 1085 points towards our goal of 2500. If we reach our goal – we will be having a carnival in June.

Report Cards were sent home on February 1st, if you have any questions or concerns please call the school.

I encourage you to have open communication with your child’s teacher and principal.
