First Week of School Edition, September 11, 2020
Welcome Back Penn-Delco
Thank you to our teachers, staff, administrators and families for ensuring our first week was a successful one. As we await the opportunity to return to our classrooms in person, we continue to commit to a productive academic year whether virtual, hybrid, or 100% in person. We look forward to our first ever virtual Back to School Nights and other opportunities to connect with our Penn-Delco families.
Professional Development days a success
On September 1st our Penn-Delco employees joined us virtually for our Professional Development Days. With presentations from Dr. Steinhoff, Mr. Kuminka, and the Health and Safety Committee, the Penn-Delco staff caught up with administration and each other. In the two days that followed, faculty attended webinars on social emotional learning, technology, and other preparations for welcoming their students in a virtual model.
