    • Recall words and numbers
    • Classify items
    • Establish sequences
    • Solve arithmetic problems

  • Career Cafe

    We had our first Career Cafe of 2017-2018. Special thanks to Mrs. DeVirgillio, Behavior Specialist for talking to our students about your job responsibilities and what skills are needed to perform your daily duties.
    Maybe you are asking, what is Career Cafe? Career Café is an opportunity for students to learn about careers from individuals in their community. This year, Career Café will be hosted in the library during lunchtime for 3rd and 4th grade students. The students will have an opportunity to eat their lunch as they hear fun facts and details about specific jobs, work schedules, and educational background relating to the job.
    As a parent/guardian, your role in this process is vital. You are very influential on a student’s career exploration process and ultimately in high school their career decisions. Consequently, you can influence the quality of the career exploration process by your support and involvement.
    We are always looking for speakers, please contact the school at 724-446-5503 if you are willing to spend 30 minutes with us.
