Dear, Parents, Students, Administration, & Staff,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for making the 2016-2017 school year another great success. We could not have accomplished all that we did without your support.

Congratulations to the class of 2017. You have set high standards that will challenge each of us to continue to grow North Schuylkill.

The young people that will head home for the summer have been our undivided focus for the past 9 months. We have already started planning for the next school year, and are excited to have our new Science textbook series that complement the NGSS standards ready to go, our curriculum maps have been updated, our MTSS team has a plan for day 1, we have had meaningful homework discussions, as well as, discussions throughout the district about our engaging and differentiated lessons for next year.

It seems just like yesterday we started the new school year. Now, as the summer air has arrived, we also find ourselves making plans for LETRS training, preparing for the visits from the Pennsylvania Department of Education representatives, and making continued preparations for the new teacher induction at North Scuylkill. As a system we remain committed to providing students with an educational program that meets their individual needs while at the same time challenging and stretching their limits intellectually.

Our staff is dedicated, resilient, optimistic, and tireless when it comes to supporting the needs of our students. The staff has demonstrated their goals with our students to include their health and well-being, nurturing their natural talents, preparing them for life beyond school, and building a partnership with families to support their learning beyond the school day and through the summer months.

I hope each of you have a safe and happy summer!

Mrs. Kimberly Groody
