6th Grade - course placement information

We are at the point in the school year where we start to think about next year - I know, hard to believe! There are opportunities for honors classes in 7th grade. The best resource to learn about courses at Arcola is the ARCOLA COURSE DESCRIPTION GUIDE, available on the Arcola Intermediate School homepage or by clicking here.

5th Grade Outdoor Education

The Outdoor Education experience is quickly approaching for our fifth graders. All families received a "payment schedule" information sheet in December. The total cost for this program is $148. We are offering to families (2) payment options: (1) Pay the full ammount (due by March 3, 2014) or (2) Pay in two installments - $74 due 1/31/14 and $74 due 3/3/14. Please make checks payable to Methacton School District. Please contact Mrs. Gorla or Mrs. Lang regarding financial assistance.

In order to ensure that all of our students are able to participate in this program we are asking for donations to our "outdoor education scholarship fund." If you are willing to donate any amount, please send it to the Skyview Main office in an envelope marked "outdoor education scholarship fund." These donations will assist students in need of financial assistance.
