TARDY PROCEDURES

If a student arrives after 8:48 a.m., parents will be asked to drive around to the front of the building and escort their child into the building to complete the appropriate tardy information. Since teachers are taking attendance promptly at 8:50 a.m., students must be in their homerooms by 8:50 a.m. Students arriving after 8:48 a.m. are considered tardy.

Pennridge Families,

It is with great excitement that we share this opportunity for your child(ren) to participate in an exciting Saturday activity: STEM Day of Play: Coding and Robotics. This program will take place on Saturday, March 21st, 2020 from 8:30 - 11:30 AM at West Rockhill Elementary School.

· All Pennridge School District students in grades 1-5 are invited to participate.

· Registration costs $25 and includes a light snack (please inform us if your child has any food allergies).

· There are limited seats per grade-level, and registration is on a first-come/first-served basis.

If your child participated in the STEAM Saturday activity last year at Grasse, this is a similar program with a new focus to align with this year's newly implemented Pennridge special STEM Lab. The program includes new activities and challenges, so repeat participation is welcomed!

If you have any questions, please contact the program coordinator Ken Ehrmann, kehrmann@pennridge.org, directly.
