It's Time for Kindergarten
A Kindergarten Readiness Meeting for parents of incoming kindergarten students in the Dallastown Area School District has been scheduled for 7:00 p.m., Monday, March 18th, at York Township Elementary School.

To be eligible, a child must turn five on or before August 31, 2019. The meeting provides information to parents regarding the academic and social expectations of children in the kindergarten program and provides an opportunity for parents to meet the kindergarten teachers. The meeting is for kindergarten parents only.
It's PSSA Time
All students in grades 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 will take the English Language Arts and Mathematics Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) beginning Monday, April 15th, through Friday, May 3rd. Additionally, the PSSA Science assessment will be administered to students in grades 4 and 8 during this same time frame.
During PSSA testing, each school has established its testing window and communicates those dates to students, parents, and guardians through school newsletters, parent letters, and each school's web page.

Just as parents help their child(ren) prepare for every school day, please help your child(ren) prepare for these assessments by encouraging them to get plenty of sleep the night before and providing them with a good breakfast on the mornings of the assessments. Results will be shared with parents when released by the state.
Early Childhood Pathway to Success  

Dallastown Area School District's Early Childhood web page provides resources toward early childhood success. Early childhood activities can have a lasting impact on brain development of young children. Reading to your child as little as 10 minutes each day can strengthen the child's readiness for kindergarten.

Access resources at: Early Childhood Pathway to Success
We Are: Partners
