Magical Summer of Reading

The Totals Are In!

Big picture

Over 220,000 minutes read by our students this summer.

We're so excited! Improving by over 70,000 minutes read from our totals last year, this summer truly has been magical! Thanks to many kind folks at home who encourage their children to read over the summer and assisting with logging minutes. The "summer slide" is real, and we're so grateful for helping our children stay focused on learning outside of school. We're excited to see where we can go this year thanks to your efforts.

When our event exceeds 100 test drives, Buick will double their donation to $20, up to a maximum of $10,000. The more drivers we have, the closer we get to our goal. Proceeds will go to support music and the arts in our schools. A little bit of your time, without obligation, and you will have made a difference! Childcare during your drive will be available! *Must be age of 21 or older with a valid driver's license.

Car Show: Calling all car enthusiasts who like to share and talk about their cars. For a $15 registration fee, we welcome you to come, park and enjoy a day with our community. See the Car Show flyer.

Mandatory TB Testing for Volunteers

Hands Across the District Volunteers TB Testing Dates October 15, 16 and 17, 2018

Hours are 8:30 am to 11:45 am or 1:40 pm to 3:15 pm

It is that time of year when the Souderton Area School District is offering FREE TB testing for all the volunteers that are new to the school or have not had a PPD/TB test in the past.

It is part of my job as Hands Across the District Coordinator to see that every person wanting and willing to volunteer at Salford Hills Elementary School has a TB test. This is for the safety of all of our children as well as a State law for anyone who is in school helping for any length of time. You only need to have it done one time for all the years that you will be volunteering, but it does require two short visits to the school nurse to have this done. One time is to receive the TB test and a second brief visit is required to have this test checked.

If you have never had a TB test please call our school nurse, Mrs. Bealer @ 610-287-9197, option 2, to set up an appointment with her to have one administered on one of these days.

Also, if you cannot make any of these days or times please call Mrs. Bealer and try to schedule another time with her to have this done.

When you do stop in please don’t forget to sign in at the office and then go to the nurse’s office.

Thank you for taking the time to do this.
