Bill Brasington also attended a conference presented by the PSBA in Hershey. He came back very excited about the focus for public schools and the programs districts are instituting. "There was some scary stuff, especially on social media." He said if anyone the sessions are online at the PA School Board Association's website.
Principal of the elementary school, Steve Brion spoke about the upcoming events at W.R. Croman.
The "Cruisers" will take place on October 21. This is to raise funds for the school's activities. The goal of $15,000 was met and now Mr. Brion will have his hair dyed on Oct. 30 and six children have been chosen to throw pies at selected teachers during an assembly.
She also thanked those who sponsored the Ag Lab and said the students had a great time.
Mrs. Stanfield said they inducted ten new members into the National Honor Society and that the open house is Oct. 27 from 5-7. This will showcase student works.
She also noted that four students are attending the FBLA workshop and 12 students qualified to attend Regional Chorus.
Mrs Shipman was not present, but sent in a note telling the board that on Oct. 20, the Junior National Honor Society will hold their induction; the fall party will be held Oct. 30; and Keegan Beard won the cross-country invitational.
Mr. Young reported that he too was very interested in the PSBA Conference and the code training which is available. He noted that some schools start this training in the elementary level grades. "We would like to promote logical thinking."
He hopes also, in the near future, to incorporate robotics into the curriculum at Troy School District.
