It Takes a Village

While the origination of the proverb of this same title is debated, there is no arguing the fact that th
e community of Dallastown has come together with a common vision, shared values, and a collective responsibility to provide for the academic needs and well-being of students in its renovation and upgrade project of Loganville-Springfield Elementary School.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held this past Friday for the $19.2 million undertaking, expected to begin this month with a December 2020 completion. Project specifications include updates and enhancements similar to those previously made at York Township Elementary School and Ore Valley Elementary School.

Let's Be Partners in the Fight

Students stay standing and active during the 12-hour overnight event to raise money and awareness for the Four Diamonds Cancer Research Foundation.
