Hello Penncrest Families,
So this will be the final “wrap up” for the 2015-16 school year. Please keep your eyes on the website in mid-July for the Annual Report that I will put together to highlight all of the great Penncrest happenings throughout this school year.
This week Monday is a regular student day and we have finals on Tuesday and Wednesday, both half days. Transportation is provided Monday – Wednesday. Thursday and Friday will be make-up final days for students and transportation WILL NOT be provided. Be sure to communicate with your teacher if you know you will be making up a final.
If you are planning to attend or participate in the Media 5-Miler Friday, keep your eyes open for some Penncrest teachers and one administrator wearing red shirts! We put together a group and are looking forward to being part of such a special Media event!
The Class of 2016 graduated on Thursday, June 9, and it was another wonderful event for the entire Rose Tree Media School District. The seniors rocked! For the final edition of the Principal’s Weekly Wrap Up, I am including the last few lines of my graduation speech. The theme of my speech was creating and living up to one’s personal “brand”. I believe this is an appropriate message to end a very successful year for Penncrest High School.
….Thank you to all of the members of the Board of School Directors and all who work at the Education Center for providing us with the resources to create a brand that all of us at Penncrest High School work diligently to always make better, and one that lives up to the expectations that come with that Penncrest “P”. A brand that is defined by academic excellence for ALL students but also encourages participation in extracurricular activities because there is more to the high school experience than a GPA, a school that believes service to others is equally as important as an A in a course, a school that values community, collaboration and continuous improvement. A school full of students and adults who not only care about, support, defend, and proudly represent our brand, but care about, support, defend and proudly represent each other. Class of 2016, I believe you that you have strengthened the Penncrest brand. Thank you for that! Now it’s time for you to live up to the brand that you have EARNED by graduating from Penncrest High School. Congratulations, and best of luck to you all!
My personal thanks to the entire Penncrest community for making my first year as the Principal a great one!
Have a safe and relaxing summer. Try to do something new or learn something new before the next school year starts!
