IV Learning Flyby - April 9th, 2021

Today we close out the 3rd marking period. One marking period to go and I feel confident we will have an excellent closure to the year. Spring sports are in full swing. The athletes are excited to be back in competition on the baseball, softball, and lacrosse fields as well as the track competing in running and field events. Also, student council elections, WEB (Where Everyone Belongs) interviews, a Bocce tournament, and outdoor performances for band, orchestra, and chorus are events scheduled and on the calendar for final marking period.

Remaining in compliance with the SASD (Souderton Area School District) Health and Safety plan is essential in making sure that we have a successful end to the year. I ask that you remind you children to continue to wear a mask appropriately, wash their hands, and socially distant. Additionally, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control), the State of Pennsylvania, and MCOPH (Montgomery County Office of Public Health) are still recommending distancing six feet at the secondary level. You can reference the SASD Health and Safety Plan and COVID-19 information at the following link: SASD Health and Safety Plan and COVID-19 Information

With the warmer weather students need to be aware of the Appearance and Dress Code in the Middle School Handbook. Mr. Hughs and I reviewed the dress Code this morning with the students on the IVTV Morning Show. The purpose of the dress code is to encourage students to focus on the learning process without the distraction of unsuitable dress and grooming. In making these choices, dress should reflect current good taste and a style appropriate for a school day. I ask that you review the dress code with you child. It can be found at the following link: Appearance and Dress Code
