School Culture Survey


Over the next two weeks, our school is conducting an on-line survey to measure how well we are providing a safe, caring, and high performing school community. This School Culture Survey takes about 15-20 minutes to complete, and we will use the results to help shape the learning environment in our school.

We would like a large percentage of our students, parents, teachers, staff, and community members to respond to this survey. Please follow the link below to take the survey between now and the Thanksgiving break. The responses are anonymous and confidential, and will be used only to plan improvements in areas where we believe we can make positive change. Thank you for your time and your sincere responses.

I welcome your perspective on our school's culture. Please complete the survey by 11/27/2019.

To start the survey:

Thank you for your feedback.

A Note from the Nurse

It is a state mandate that a copy of your child’s physical must be turned in for 6th grade. If your child had a physical at their doctors’ office after the date of 9/2018 (last year) it can still be accepted. If you have not already turned in your form, please turn this copy in ASAP. It can be delivered directly to the nurse at school or faxed at (814) 835-5545. If a private physical is not turned in by November 12th, your child may be scheduled to see the school physician on December 4th. You may elect to have your child see the school physician if needed. Parents are also encouraged to attend the school-based physicals if possible. If you have questions please contact the school nurse.

Thank You,

Brooke Crocker RN, CSN
