Parents who attended the Parent Summit and other District events

27 students who are recognized for high honors from the School Board of Directors

Pre-College credits from Eastern and Widener Universities for the high school students

Partnership and reduced tuition rates from Delaware County Community College

Community partners who care and continue to add resources to the schools

Staff who mentor students and help them achieve excellence

And “Have a great holiday!”
