Read-A-Thon Results are in!

We hope that your child and family enjoyed our first annual Read-A-Thon fundraiser.

Our goal was to read 30,000 minutes and we are excited to share that we exceeded that goal. Congratulations to all of the readers; way to go! Those students with the most read minutes in each class will get a certificate next week to celebrate their accomplishments.

On the fundraiser side of the Read-A-Thon, families were able to "sponsor" their student(s) to participate in the Read-A-Thon. We continue to receive some donations via postal mail; However, the total amount of funds that were donated at this time total $2,096.50.

Families can still donate at any time. Checks and Venmo (@Trum-TPO) are accepted in an ongoing manner. If you do donate, please put the name of your child in the memo of the check or in the note section of the Venmo payment.

Donations to our TPO help your school in many ways. To name just a few, TPO pays for the transportation costs (Levy Bus rentals) and entrance fees for all field trips for students. Also, TPO provides student planners for all 3-5 graders, pencil boxes, pencils, and glue sticks for all students.

Thank you for supporting your students and our school! We appreciate you.

Another reminder about Safe Arrival.

Safe Arrival has been live for three weeks. Many parents have been choosing the use the program and the feedback the school has received from parents is that once they've used the program, they've come to love how simple and easy it is.

A Few Reminders:

If you mark illness as an excuse on the app, you must to follow up with an email or phone call to the school nurse. Ms. Oppenheim will determine if the symptoms fall into the COVID protocol where your child may need to stay home.

If you mark other-requires principal approval, this will be marked as a Fully Unexcused Absence until a follow-up note is received via email or with a handwritten note explaining the reason for the absence. It stays in the system as an FUA (Fully Unexcused Absence) until a note is received. The 3-day window in which you can turn in notes still applies. Any notes received after the 3-day window will stay as unexcused.

Virtual Screenings

Dear Trumbauersville Families,

Each year, Pennsylvania school nurses are required to complete annual health screenings (BMI, vision, hearing, and scoliosis) for all our students. These requirements include our virtual and homeschooled students. For students who are in the live instructional setting, the screenings are completed in school.

For students who are virtual or homeschooled, the QCSD Nursing Department is planning to offer screenings at Quakertown Community High School after school hours on May 3, 5, 11, 13, 19, and 21.

Parents of virtual or homeschooled students, please click the link to the google form to either schedule your child’s appointment or to opt-out of screenings for this school year. Please complete the google form for each child you have who is either virtual or homeschooled.

Thank you,

Melissa Kelly and Michelle Molyneaux

Certified School Nurse Coordinators

Quakertown Community School District
