SPOTLIGHT STORY: Poetry Alive Performances at Vernfield Elementary
Third grade students at Vernfield Elementary were busy in December preparing for their Poetry Alive performance. They worked in groups to memorize poems and songs with winter holiday themes. The students came up with motions to make the poetry come alive. They did a wonderful job and showcased their talent for parents, teachers, and fellow students. Try to stay warm this winter season!

SPOTLIGHT VIDEO - Souderton's Got Class: Language Exploration Opportunities
The Language Exploration Opportunities (LEO) class offers kindergarten students an extra half day of kindergarten. Students go to regular AM kindergarten, have lunch and recess with first grade and then come to the LEO class every afternoon. The class offers students a chance to develop/acquire language, practice academic skills and gain experiences in and out of school. The class takes several field trips throughout the year such as, Freddy Hill Farms in Lansdale and Landis Market in Telford. The LEO class has also partnered with Souderton Mennonite Home to Adopt Grandparents. Once a month the class visits Souderton Mennonite Home to play games, read and do crafts with our grandparents. The LEO program has been a wonderful addition for kindergarten students at E.M.C.

From Frank T. Gallagher, Superintendent of Schools
As we usher in a new year, it is a good time to reflect on our numerous accomplishments.
Academically we continue to perform well. Our high school is ranked in the top 10% in the Commonwealth per the Pennsylvania School Performance Profile. We are proud to announce the creation of our Parent University which is a program for parents and adult community members. This program will help support community participation in our students' academic success. It offers content-rich workshops led by administrators, teachers and other leaders within our school community. Our first workshop is scheduled for January 28 at Franconia Elementary School. Additional details are available at http://www.soudertonsd.org/parents-students/services/federal-programs/parent-university/
The winter months are often depicted as a time to hibernate and lay low, but quite the opposite is occurring within the Souderton Area SD. The District Office is busy registering our future kindergarten students and our academic endeavors continue to engage our students along with many extra-curricular activities and events.
