American Education Week Parent Visitations 11/17 & 11/18

American Education Week Parent Visitations will take place on Tuesday, November 17th and Wednesday, November 18th. Parents and community members are invited to visit the elementary schools (K-4) of the Neshaminy School District from 9:15 to 11:15 on those dates.

Visitation to classrooms provides an opportunity for parents and community members to see the programs in which students are involved. The regular schedule that the students follow will be maintained, so if a class is working with a specialist teacher during this visitation, we will ask teachers to post this information outside the classroom door.

You may visit more than one classroom. Chairs will be placed in the back of each classroom for your convenience. If possible, please have your young children cared for at home while you visit.

Parents with the last names A-M Tuesday, from 9:15 A.M. to 11:15 A.M.

Parents with the last names N-Z Wednesday, from 9:15 A.M. to 11:15 A.M

Giving Tree

It’s that time of year!

A time for joy, and a time for giving!

There are several families in the Lower South Community that could use a little extra help for the holidays. In order to help these families, we will have a Giving Tree set up in the front office with special ornaments on it describing an item that can be purchased for local families in need.

If you would like to help, parents can stop by the office and choose an ornament from the tree. We ask that all purchases be returned to school, unwrapped, by

December 16th along with the original ornament, to be used as an identifying tag.

Thank you for being so caring and giving when it matters most!

Happy Holidays!!!!
