Golden Paint Brush

Congratulations to Mrs. Brennan's class for earning the 1st Golden Paintbrush of the school year. Each class period, students have an opportunity to earn a paint splash on their classroom palate for following the ROAR RULES during ART. When a classroom fills up their palate, they receive a Golden Paintbrush. It's a friendly competition to see how many paint brushes can be collected for the school year!

Demographic Update Forms

As a reminder, at the start of every school year, the Council Rock School District requires parents/guardians to verify their demographic information through Home Access Center (HAC). Here are the directions in completing this task:


  • Login to HAC.
  • Click on Update Registration tab and look for the word NEW in the middle of the screen. Click on that link to open the Demographic Update Form 2021.
  • You can review information on the form by expanding the + sign in each area, but must add the required fields for Medication Authorization and Publicity Exclusion.
  • Click I Agree when done then Submit.


There have been times when I was unable to reach a parent by email or phone because the contact information was incorrect. Please be sure to complete the review process so that the school staff can contact you if there is ever an urgent need to do so. Thank you.

LUNCH INFORMATION

All Council Rock students in grades 1-8 are eligible to receive a free lunch if they so desire. A student receiving a free meal must choose at least 3 items for the lunch to be considered complete as per the Department of Child Nutrition regulations, one of which must be at least a half-cup serving of a fruit or vegetable. Anything less than this will be considered an a la carte purchase and must be paid for by the student.


Snack prices depend on the items. Snacks are now available for purchase during lunch.

FAMILY EDUCATIONAL TRIPS

Attached is the form to be completed for Family Educational Trips. Handwritten letters are accepted, however this form is preferred. Please be sure to submit the form/letter at least ten (10) days prior to your trip, for approval. Please contact Debbie Kunzig, attendance clerk, at dkunzig@crsd.org if you have questions regarding this process.
