This holiday season is a time to reflect and give thanks to the special people in each of our lives - our family, friends, teachers, emergency responders and so many more.
I want to say thank you to our families for their commitment and dedication to our school community, for volunteering and for supporting their children in their studies and career pathway. Your continual support makes our Methacton Schools exceptional places to learn, lead and exceed.
May these holidays be a time of recreation and relaxation, so very important as we prepared to capture the opportunities before us in the new year.
Dr. David Zerbe
Superintendent of Schools
Now let’s take a look at some of the events and achievements that took place across the district in December...
ARROWHEAD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
We Are Thankful for Our First Responders & Lower Providence Police
EAGLEVILLE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Student Council finished up their food drive and collected 122 items to be donated to the Lt. Patty Simons Law Enforcement Fund.
Many thanks to our Eagleville Home and School for the Holiday Shop. The students were so thrilled to shop for their family members. Home and School decorated our new Flex Classroom space to provide a festive shopping atmosphere for the students.
WOODLAND ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Woodland Read-A-Thon Prize
Woodland Winter Concert
WORCESTER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Student Council Shopping Trip
Earlier this month, Worcester’s Student Council took a trip to Target with club sponsors and parent chaperones. They used the money raised from our soft pretzel sales to shop for Methacton students in need. This yearly tradition helps many families in our school community and teaches our students valuable skills.
SKYVIEW UPPER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Skyview Day of Service
Skyview musicians held their 5th and 6th grade music concert on December 12th. The auditorium was packed with families who came out to hear their children perform. It was a wonderful evening and our musicians put a lot of practice time into preparing for their performance.
ARCOLA INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL
Arcola Winter Concert
Arcola’s Winter Concert (Band, Chorus, Orchestra) was held for students on the morning of December 6th with the concert for families being held that night. It was a great show, and it was such fun to see the culmination of so much hard work. Our performing arts has seen an increase in student participation this year. We are fortunate to have a solid foundation of support for our music program!
