Junior Board Representatives
Each month throughout the school year, at the voting meeting of the Board, student board representatives provide a snapshot of the many incredible and important learning experiences that occur. This is all part of how we share our Methacton Pride!
Special thank you to Quintin Frey and Emmalyn Koch for representing Arcola Intermediate School as Junior Board Representatives for December 2018.
Award of Excellence
Dr. Amy Mangano, Principal of Arcola Intermediate School, presented Awards of Excellence to Ms. Abby Hollenbeck and Ms. Caroline Deininger. Both of these outstanding members of the Arcola team go above and beyond to support the students, staff and community of the Methacton School District.
Arrowhead Elementary School Discussion
Superintendent, Dr. David Zerbe presented a recommended timeline for the Board to consider with respects to the Arrowhead Elementary School property. The timeline recommends that a decision by the Board be made in January to narrow potential options going forward. The discussion centers on the projected $14 Million in facilities renovations and if the district should consider closure and consolidation, renovation, or new construction. The Board requested that Dr. Zerbe provide additional information to help with this decision making process.
