Principal's Wrap-up

  • Weekly Wrap-up for October 14, 2016

    Posted by Michael Clark at 10/16/2016
    Hello Penncrest Families,
    There is some great news to spread.  Our girls soccer team earned special recognition for academic performance.  You will have to read below to see the details!
    Other exciting news is about one of our faculty members.  Mike Doyle and his wife, Kelly, have been chosen to receive the Volunteer Recognition Award from the American Cancer Society.  They are being honored at the Greater Philadelphia Area Awards Celebration dinner next month.
    They were chosen for their work with Coaches vs Cancer which falls under the umbrella of the American Cancer Society. Mr. and Mrs. Doyle have led the fundraising efforts that have raised close to $75,000 throughout our community, with a large amount raised through the $1 donations of our students collected by the basketball teams through their drive and determination to make an impact on this terrible disease.
    Congratulations Lady Lions and Mr. and Mrs. Doyle!
    Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
    Ralph Harrison

    Girls Soccer

    This past week the Penncrest Lady Lions Soccer Team was awarded the NSCAA Team Academic Award with a team GPA of 3.60.  They are one of 251 girl’s teams across the country, and 1 of 20 PA HS girls’ soccer teams to receive the award.

    To qualify for the award, the team must have a minimum grade point average of 3.25 for the entire academic year. The team GPA is determined by adding every player's GPA, then dividing by the number of players.

    On the soccer field the Lady Lions continued their strong play over the past week.  After dropping their first match of the season in OT 2-1 to Strath Haven they posted a win against Radnor and a tie against top ranked District 1 AAA Conestoga 2-2. This moves the team record to W9-L1-T3.  The team is striving to grab one of the top spots in the District 1 AAA playoff seedings.

    The girls celebrated Senior Night this Thursday (10/13/2016) under the lights with a 7 PM home game against Central League opponent Marple Newtown.
