WE'RE ON THE COUNTDOWN!

Like me, I'm sure you can't believe the end of the school year is near! As always, it's been an AWESOME year. Our students never cease to amaze me. They gave it their personal best. I sincerely hope our new families, this year, had a great experience as a part of our Exton community.

On behalf of the Exton staff and myself, I wish everyone a great summer. Thank you for your support and sending your children to us everyday. Enjoy the break and be safe!

WHAT'S UP?

WCASD THINK TANK -Some of our fourth and fifth grade students competed in several activities with other students from elementary schools across the district. Activities included Coding Robots through a maze, 24 Math game and Logic problems. Our fourth grade team consisted of Pranoy Muthaiyan, Nick DiTullio, Rebekah Neithardt, Siyona Gupta, Erica Chen and Abby Peruto. Our fifth grade team was Nate Mullin, Danny Zytkowicz, Sidharth Sumesh, Kelsey Rehm, Krithick Saravana and Conor McCormick. Exton's fourth and fifth grade combined score placed Exton second overall in combined categories. Congratulations to all! GO EXTON!!!

FROM THE LIBRARY - MRS. TAYLOR

All library books are due Friday, May 31st. The library will send out notices for missing books at that time. Lost books should be paid for with cash or check payable to WCASD. We have had a record year for book checkouts. over 24,000 books have been circulated! Way to go Exton students and families, that's a lot of reading! Don't stop the reading. Find some good books to read and enjoy over the summer.

FROM THE NURSE - CONTINUED REMINDERS

Current 2nd Graders- Your child is required to have a dental exam in his/her 3rd grade school year (2019-2020). This is not a new requirement, but WCASD now has a provisional period of 60 days from the start of school. This means your child’s dental exam report is due on or before October 29, 2019. This deadline is a long time off, but I can accept upcoming or recent dental reports any time and update your child’s health record now. Exams must have been after 8/31/18.

Current 5th Graders- Your child is required to have a physical exam in his/her 6th grade school year (2019-2020). This is not a new requirement, but WCASD now has a provisional period of 60 days from the start of school. This means your child’s physical exam report is due on or before October 29, 2019. This deadline is a long time off, but I can accept upcoming or recent physical reports any time and update your child’s health record now, before I forward it. Exams must have been after 8/31/18.

HAPPY RETIREMENT TO MRS. GITTINGS!

HER SHOES WERE HARD TO FILL!

I am pleased to announce that Mrs. Terry Spranger has been hired as my new Administrative Assistant. Mrs. Spranger has been a WCASD employee for the past fourteen years. I'm pretty sure many of you know Mrs. Spranger. She has been an Instructional Assistant during her time here and participates in many school activities. She is eager and excited to begin her new position in the main office.
