6th grade students demonstrate RVR+ robots
On Friday, May 12, 2023, several students from Ms. DeMitis’ class were invited to demonstrate the use of the RVR+ robots that were received from the Great Valley School District Education Foundation this year. The breakfast was the Foundation's yearly meeting to address donors for the Venture Grants. The ten students created four interactive stations for the adults to see the use of the robots live. Attached please find a few pictures of the event.

Safe 2 Say Something
Safe2Say Something is a youth violence prevention program run by the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General. The program teaches youth and adults how to recognize warning signs and signals, especially within social media, from individuals who may be a threat to themselves or others and to “say something” BEFORE it is too late. With Safe2Say Something, it’s easy and confidential to report safety concerns to help prevent violence and tragedies.
Last Day of School is Now June 14
To make up for the snow day on December 23 (which was a half-day for students), a day has been added to the end of the school year.
The last student day is now June 14. Please note that both June 13 and June 14 will be half-days for students.
If there are additional snow days this year, they will also be made up at the end of the year.
