The Principal's Office - North Schuylkill Elementary

Message from the North Schuylkill Elementary Principals:

As we step into the vibrant days of summer, I want to take a moment to reflect on the incredible journey we've shared over the past school year. Our students have shown remarkable growth, curiosity, and resilience, making us all very proud of their accomplishments.

This past year has been filled with countless memorable experiences and significant achievements. From engaging classroom activities to exciting school events such as Carnival, chorus/band concerts, field trips and graduations, our students have demonstrated a commitment to learning and a passion for discovery. Their enthusiasm and hard work are truly inspiring.

Summer is a wonderful time for students to relax, explore, and continue learning in different ways. I encourage all our students to dive into new books, embark on adventures in nature, and spend quality time with family and friends.

For our parents and guardians, thank you for your unwavering support and partnership. Your involvement and dedication have been instrumental in making our school a nurturing and thriving environment. Together, we have created a community where every child feels valued and inspired to reach their full potential.

As we look forward to the next school year, our team is diligently planning and preparing to welcome our students back with open arms. We are committed to providing a safe, inclusive, and stimulating educational experience that caters to the diverse needs of our learners. Please stay tuned for updates and information regarding the new school year.

Wishing you all a joyful, safe, and enriching summer break. Let's make the most of this time to recharge and come back ready for another fantastic year of learning and growth. It has been an honor to have completed my first year as the North Schuylkill Elementary principal with all your unwavering help and support, and I cannot wait to continue for the 2024-2025 school year!

With Spartan Pride
Ms. Janel Babatsky, Principal
