Message from Dr. Harmer
At the start of this week our teachers and specialist have begun administering district benchmark assessments. These assessments will be used to inform our instruction for your child. Benchmark assessment data will also be used to provide appropriate instructional interventions for students. As a school we will communicate if your child will be receiving an intervention based on the data. Using benchmark data coupled with classroom assessments and teacher observations will allow teachers to provide your child with an educational experience.
UNIVERSAL FREE BREAKFAST PROGRAM
On Friday, September 9, 2022, Governor Wolf announced a Universal Free Breakfast program for all Pennsylvania students to begin on October 1, 2022 through the end of the 2022-2023 school year. As a result, all Methacton School District students will have the option to receive breakfast each morning at no cost. Our building principals are working on a plan with Aramark to roll out this new program and will be providing additional information in the coming days. Monthly menus can always be found at: https://methacton.schooldish.com/

New Five Day Schedule
Kona Truck Water Ice Social Friday, September 16th
This week Kinders practiced some skills to make friends. These skills include making eye contact, using that just right voice volume and always using kind words. You can reinforce this lesson with any grade student by practicing these skills at the dinner table, during activities with your child, on playdates or even allowing them to order their own meal at restaurants. Social skills are lifelong skills that often help develop confidence. If you need support with social skills with your child, please contact Ms. Shaw at LShaw@methacton.org or 610-489-5000 X41207
