PSSA-Success and Celebration

To prepare for the PSSAs, our school is conducting several activities to promote a culture of success and celebration around testing:

1. Conversations and assemblies will provide positive mindset and set test expectations.

2. Students will work together to develop motivational posters for display in testing classrooms.

3. Building-wide celebration is planned for each school that reaches the test participation goal of 95%.

PSSA testing will occur on the dates listed here. To learn more about the PSSA, please join us for a Parent Information webinar with our administration on Tuesday, March 21 at 6:30pm. Click the hyperlinked dates for a direct link to either session. You can also submit your questions here.

Our commitment to the success of your child and all children is our mission. Thank you for your continued support of Methacton Schools.

Nurse Kelly's Corner

What Are Coughs?

Coughs are one of the most common symptoms of childhood illness. A cough can sound awful, but usually isn't a sign of a serious condition. In fact, coughing is a healthy and important reflex that helps protect the airways in the throat and chest.

How Can I Help My Child Feel Better?

  • A cool-mist humidifier in your child's bedroom might help with sleep.

  • Brief exposure to cool air outdoors can relieve the cough. Make sure to dress your child appropriately for the outdoor weather for 10–15 minutes.

  • Cool beverages like juice can be soothing and it is important to keep your child hydrated.

  • Cough drops are OK for older kids, but kids younger than 4 years old can choke on them. It's better to avoid cough drops unless your doctor says that they're safe for your child.
