Junior High Positive Academic and Behavior Support Program

7th and 8th Grade Students and Families

Beginning the week of January 23rd, 7th and 8th grade students will have the opportunity to earn incentives based on weekly criteria.  Students will then be entered into drawings for assorted prizes.  These incentives and drawings will be weekly leading up to the PSSA tests in April.  Next week, the focus will be “Preparedness for Class.”

Update:   School is in session and all on-campus activities will resume for Friday, January 20th

This message is to inform you that school will be in session on Friday, January 20th.  The district has completed the mechanical tie-in to the elementary well.   The elementary school runs on a completely separate water system and has passed all tests as required by the Department of Environmental Protection.  Water testing has been completed and has been processed by a certified lab.  The Department of Environmental Protection lifted the boil water advisory this afternoon.   Official DEP notification is below. Again, school will be in session on Friday, January 20th.

Update:   School calendar impact

The district will be submitting January 17th and 18th as ACT 80 days to the state.  The students will not have to make up those days.  This is possible due to additional hours built into the schedule for just such emergencies.  However, beginning with Thursday the 19th, the students will have to make up academic days.  Thursday’s rescheduled day would be February 20th.   Students will attend school on February the 20th, 2017.

On behalf of the staff and Board of Directors, I want to personally thank the Mohawk School Community for their patience and support during this inconvenient time for families.  Please know that all decisions were made with great caution and recognition of all student safety considerations.  We understand the difficulties that these cancellations bring forth and appreciate the cooperation we have received from our stakeholders.  We are truly lucky to have such a strong support system for the students of this community.

Second Grade's School/Community Partnership Activity

As part of Second Grade's School/Community Partnership Activity for the month of December, we had a wonderful presentation by McConnell's Tree Farm. Jen McConnell Shorts and her family provided all of our students with a presentation on how the trees are planted, cared for, and prepared for the holiday season. They also sen​t​ in small pieces of Christmas Trees so that the students in Second Grade could all make their very own Charlie Brown Tree. They also provided all of the students with a Christmas Tree Activity Book. On behalf of Mr. Best, Miss Maiorano, Mrs. Myer, Mrs. Toomey and M​iss​. Zarlengo. We would like to thank you McConnell's for the wonderful presentation and Merry Christmas!
