Children feel and learn better when they are physically active and energized. Over sixty 4th and 5th graders at Oak Ridge Elementary School participated in the Wake-Up Club, a program designed to have children workout and prepare them for learning before school. This program teaches children how to work out on their own to improve their personal fitness goals, work together with other children, and have fun while being physically active.
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.
