Humtpy Dumplings, Glenside

Have you heard of Humpty Dumplings in Glenside? This is a new business owned by Bishop McDevitt and Cheltenham High School alumni. Humpty Dumplings will hold a fundraising night for us on Tuesday, February 23rd. Twenty percent (20%) of all sales from 3PM-9PM will benefit the Parents Association. If your kids are staying late for a sport or the play rehearsals, tell them to head down to Humpty's on Keswick Avenue for dinner. Stop over yourself and take a night off from cooking. Your options are eat-in, take-out, or delivery (within a 10 minute drive), Here's their website. This is a great way to help support a local business/communit, our own alumni, and current students through the Parents Association.

Thank you !

Thanks to all who have helped with the Parents Association Sponsored Events so far this year. We have had many wonderful opportunities to help our school and our students. The Thanksgiving Pie Sale was again, a huge success. The students had a great time at the social events and the Parents Association was proudly represented at the Fall Open House and the College Night.
