The yearbook is one of our favorite school traditions. Students anticipate reliving the school year through photos, student portraits and event highlights. Soon your child/children will be bursting with excitement to review their yearbook. Imagine the surprise when your child/children find(s)a personal message from you!The students love looking for these in the back of the book! You can use one box or more by forming your message across several boxes, but it is $5 per rectangle. You can attach something that fits inside the box area, but does not cross the lines as well. Do NOT write outside the box lines as this will not print.Note there is a 4 box limit per student.Due Date –Wednesday,February 26th

Effective Monday, February 3, 2020!

If you have a negative account balance you will not be able to purchase any a la carte items (snacks, drinks, individual food items) until the account is in good standing.


The student will be able to purchase a complete meal, but those purchases will be added to the existing negative balance and there is an expectation of eventual payment.


Thank you,


Mrs. Anita Palazzo

A message from our nurse!

Cold and Flu season are upon us! Here are some suggested guidelines for deciding on keeping children home from school.
Big picture

Dear Parents:

Now that the cold weather is upon us, we want to ask you to remind your child to wear a coat, hat, pants, and mittens or gloves to school. We are outside for recess when the actual temperature is 16 degrees or above. A shortened “cold weather recess” will be in effect when the temperature and/or wind chill is between 15 and 20 degrees. In order to protect the health of our students, we want children to go outside wearing adequate protection.

Thank you for your help in reminding your child to wear his/her winter gear to school.

Volunteer to help in the library!

Ms. Reice is in need of volunteers to come and help shelve books in the library! This is a great way to help out in the school. Please contact Ms. Reice if you are interested at jreice@soudertonsd.org

Box Tops

A Box Tops tutorial went home in communicators this month so hopefully everyone has had a chance to take a look and get signed up on the app. Thank you so much to the Franconia families who have started scanning receipts and entering student names/teacher names already. We are very much looking forward to awarding someone with a $25 gift card in February so keep up the good work! So far our school has earned slightly over $500 from Box Tops this year. We are a bit behind in reaching our goal for the year so we could use everyone's help in scanning receipts and continuing to send in the clips that are still out there on store shelves!

If you have any questions, please contact Lauren Brown (lcbrown012@gmail.com).
