FIRST PLACE winners will compete at the state level this April in Hershey, PA.

We have updated our eligibility process beginning with today’s eligibility list.  Students are still expected to maintain a minimum grade average of 60% in all classes. In the event a student’s grade average in one course drops below 60% they will be notified and placed on a one week probationary period. Students are expected to seek assistance for the class/course during the probationary period and may still participate in PIAA sports or extra-curricular and co-curricular school activities during that week.  For a student on probation who has not achieved a passing average (higher than 60%) by the second week, he/she will be ineligible for a period of one week and not permitted to participate in any PIAA sports or extra-curricular and co-curricular school activities beginning Sunday and extending to the following Saturday.

Students with grade averages below 60% in two or more courses will not be afforded a probationary period and will be declared ineligible.

Spring sports are right around the corner.  If your student is interested in participating in Boys/Girls Track, Baseball, Softball, Girls/Boys Lacrosse, or Boys Tennis the deadline to fill out the Registration information by Feb 24th.  Spring sports will begin on March 2nd for students who have turned in all of the necessary paperwork.

There will be an informational meeting for students/parents that are interested in taking an advanced placement course for the first time on Wednesday, February 19th at 7:30 pm in the auditorium. Parents and students are welcome to attend to learn about the AP Program.

Program Planning for the 20-21 school year is here!  Beginning Feb 12th (through March 1) students and parents have access view course recommendations, pick courses and add their alternates. Familiarize yourself with the graduation requirements and check out the amazing courses we offer.  All students must roster at least 6 credits at all times. In order to do so, students need to pick a full load AND three alternate electives. Please contact your student’s counselor with any questions.
