Welcome back to the 2019-2020 school year!
Beginning this year, our high school students will now have access to nineteen different courses as part of our College in the High School program. We have partnered with Harrisburg University, who is new to our district this year, University of Pittsburgh, Harrisburg Area Community College and Rochester Institute of Technology. Lebanon Valley College also provides 15 free course seats each semester for a total of 30 course seats for our students.
The accomplishments of the Annville-Cleona School District can be attributed to the efforts of talented and dedicated professionals, a supportive community, and a supportive Board of School Directors with a commitment to educating "the whole child". We are dedicated to establishing and sustaining standards of teaching practice at optimum levels of effectiveness at every grade level and across all content areas to ensure our students gain the skills and knowledge necessary to participate richly and fully in a dynamic twenty-first century global economy.
We continue our work to focus on “educating the whole child”, with the purpose of removing barriers to education in order to ensure all students have an equitable opportunity to achieve academic success socially, emotionally, behaviorally and physical.
This year we are implementing our new Social and Emotional Learning Curriculum (SEL). In grades one through six we will be using a program called TOOLBOX. TOOLBOX is a research-based, community-tested kindergarten through 6th grade social and emotional learning (SEL) program that strengthens children’s innate capacity for resilience, self-mastery and empathy for others through its curricula, methods, and practices. In grades 7 through twelve, we are also implementing an SEL curriculum that was developed by our social worker, Mrs. Sprecher.
This summer, Annville Elementary School’s front office was renovated to enhance our security efforts. Bollards were also installed on the campuses of all district buildings as an additional security measure. We continually evaluate our security efforts to ensure we are doing everything possible to keep our students and staff safe.
Thank you for your support of our schools as we continued to work together to provide the best educational opportunities for our students.
