Good afternoon, families! As we wrap-up the 2021-2022 school year, I want to wish all our families a restful and relaxing summer break! Our students have done a tremendous job this school year and have excelled in their academics, the arts, and athletics. This year ushered in a fresh appearance for our school and I genuinely believe that these improvements have enhanced the educational experience for our students. I am excited to see what new heights our Intermediate and Middle School will reach next school year. I would also like to wish our 8th graders all the best as they join the student body of the Brandywine Heights High School. This group has left a positive impact on our school and we are so proud of their accomplishments. A special thank you and well wishes to Mrs. Tess Woloszanski as she retires after 32 years of service to our students and community! Lastly, I want to congratulate Mr. Antonio Riggins, who pending School Board approval, will be our next Principal. Mr. Riggins brings a focus on character and has strong and positive relationships with our students, staff, and community. In closing, I would like to thank our families for your support during my tenure as principal over the past 7 school years. I am so proud of what we have accomplished over these years and the opportunities created for our students to find and explore their passions. Over the past years, I have been excited to participate in many programs, including the recent renovations to our school, the creation and expansion of our STEM Program and Intervention Support Team, the expansion of World Language offerings in our school, increases in student involvement in Music and the Arts, and closest to my heart: our Superhero Program where each student has a dedicated staff member who serves as a resource, support, and mentor. It has been an absolute privilege and honor to work with our students, staff, and families over the past 7 years. I am a firm believer in the idea that you should leave a place better than you found it. I hope that I have been successful and have lived up to this saying and, as always, I appreciate your continued support as I transition in my new role as Curriculum Supervisor for our School District. Have a wonderful summer!! Mr. Farina

Students from the IS/MS & HS Life Skills classrooms visited Bitty & Beau's Coffee Shop in Bethlehem on Monday. Bitty & Beau's employs individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This experience allowed our students who run our building Coffee Carts to experience opportunities for employment that exist after graduation. Thank you to Ms. McLean & Mrs. Sheetz for a great day!
