A Note from Mr. Shaffer

Dear Worcester Families,


Happy Mother's Day to all of the mothers who are part of our Worcester community! I hope you each enjoy this special day of recognition for all that you do over the course of any given year, but especially this year . . . It's a day that each of you most certainly earned!


Thank you for all of the notes of appreciation that were sent to teachers throughout the week! I received several messages and pictures of appreciation as well. I will be highlighting the artwork that has been shared with me in our weekly newsletter, starting today and continuing over the next few weeks. Please see below for this week's artists. Your positivity, encouragement, and kindness is most definitely appreciated!


Our latest flipgrid activity involved the collection of videos to reconnect our staff with our Worcester families through music. If your family would like to add a video, please click the link below to access Flipgrid, and then tap the plus sign to record and upload a short video or picture. You can record for a maximum of a minute and a half.



Please click the links below to access our video playlists.



This week, our Worcester Team is excited to share our latest creation. We hope you enjoy! A special thanks to all who participated and who assisted with creating the final product!





Stay well, keep connected, and let's all remember to smile!


With Sincere Thoughts,


Principal Shaffer (and the Worcester Team)

A MESSAGE FROM MRS. SNYDER

Hello, everyone! I wish I could be at school enjoying time working with your children. Instead of having lunch bunches with our students, I participated in a virtual lunch bunch with the three Methacton elementary school counselors. Click this link below to see a typical lunch bunch activity (high-low) that you may want to try during your family’s mealtime.

Right now, you can find our Poem of the Day, which is read (and sometimes written) by our teachers as well as a 100 brick LEGO challenge. Check back often...you never know what may suddenly appear...that's a magical hint (O^O)!

Encourage, Empower, and Inspire

Thank you to all of the Worcester BEEs for encouraging our students, empowering our families, and for inspiring me each and everyday!


There any many lessons that can be learned from the honeybee. For me, the importance of community and working together for the greater good is the lesson that resonates most!
