The PA Department of Education is looking for feedback…

The Pennsylvania Department of Education has developed a website to solicit feedback from the public on the eligible content in English language arts and mathematics in grades three through eight, and Algebra I and Literature at the secondary level.

Pennsylvania’s eligible content statements are a straightforward set of what we want students to know and do at each grade level, and serve as the blueprint for the state assessments.

This website was designed to promote public awareness and understanding of the eligible content and obtain feedback from Pennsylvania educators, parents and the general public on the eligible content statements, their purpose, and value.

If after gathering feedback, we conclude that significant changes are needed, we will engage in a revision process via statewide public hearings.

The website is currently populated with eligible content for grade three English language arts and mathematics and is available for public review.

By mid-November, the website will be expanded to encompass the eligible content for grades three through eight and Algebra I and Literature.

Please share this information with educators, parents, community members, and other interested parties and encourage them to visit http://paacademicreview.org and review the content.  The feedback we receive will be invaluable as we evaluate and refine our career and postsecondary expectations for our students.

BMX Fundraising Show

WTP14VERSUSTRR

First of all, the PTO and I would like to extend our sincerest thanks to everyone who made our fundraiser such an overwhelming success!  The total raised far more than we ever anticipated; so many, many thanks to you all!

As a small token of our appreciation, ALL students will be attending the BMX show on Monday, October 27th.  We are encouraging families to attend as well because without your support, we would not have been so successful.  The show will begin promptly at 2:15 and run approximately 30 minutes in the back parking lot.  We ask that you simply park out front in the front parking lot and walk around to the back of the building.

Since the show is only 30 minutes long and there is 45 minutes of instructional time left in the school day, NO student will be permitted to leave with his/her parent(s) at the conclusion of the event.  All students will be dismissed at the normal school time.  We appreciate your understanding in this matter!

Hope to see you there!

Buddy Bench

Our LeTort Buddy Bench is outside on the playground.  If a child is upset, lonely, or does not have someone to play with, he/she would come to the buddy bench to find a friend.  We have some students who often need support/guidance during recess and this bench is there to help!  When a student comes and sits on the buddy bench, other children will come to the rescue!  REMEMBER, WE ARE HERE TO HELP ONE ANOTHER!

Congratulations to Rachel Sensenich, in Mrs. Winter’s 2nd grade class, for winning the contest to advertise the Buddy Bench.  Above is a photo of her design.  WAY TO GO, RACHEL!
