From the Desk of Ms. Taylor and Mr. Rodriguez

Hello Families,

The beginning of a new school year is always an exciting time for students, teachers and families. While students are eager to return to renew old friendships and begin new ones, our teachers have been preparing to engage our children in a variety of strategies which will guide them through the learning process. Our staff are committed to unlocking the potential in every student to help them be successful. As we put together our final preparations, we do so with the mission of our School District in mind, which is to...

"To educate all students of the Norristown Area School District (NASD) to become responsible, thinking, creative, literate citizens who strive for personal excellence, function successfully, and enrich society."

The safety of our students and staff is our number one priority. However, if the past year and a half have taught us anything, it is COVID creates obstacles, so we must be able to adapt and overcome at a moments notice. Our school district will be collaborating with the Montgomery County Health Department and reviewing recommendations from the CDC to help guide decision making for the new school year. As students prepare to enter our doors at 8:00am on Monday, August 30th please remember;

  • when in our schools, all staff and students are required to wear masks indoors;
  • students are required to wear masks while riding on buses (in accordance with the CDC order);
  • physical/social distancing of 3’ is recommended

Please take a moment to look through this newsletter to familiarize yourself with various school goals, expectations and upcoming events. We are ready to welcome back all of our students, teachers and staff for what, we believe, will be the best school year yet!


We have missed everyone and are ready for the new school year!

We are here to serve,

Ms. Taylor, Principal

Mr. Rodriguez, Assistant Principal
