Dear Parents and Guardians,

As the second marking period comes to a close and we get ready to distribute report cards, it reminds us of  the opportunity it brings for parents to have meaningful conversations with their children.  It is a critical time to meet with your child’s teacher(s) to gain a deeper understanding of the success and/or challenges that each student is experiencing at this point of the school year.  Every parent is urged to participate in parent/teacher conferences at any time throughout the school year to ensure all students attain success in every classroom.

For parents of students in the middle school and/or high school, it also is a critical time to provide insight and advice in determining the courses that your child should register and take in the next school year to ensure they are on target for graduation and/or postgraduate education and/or a career.

The winter and early spring season offer excellent opportunities for parents/guardians and their children to spend quality time together reading in the home to continue to solidify the educational foundation of learning to be life long.

Let’s keep making good things happen!

Vulnerability Assessment Team Surveys
Please take a few moments to complete one of the following Vulnerability Assessment Team surveys, a component of our Safety Committee.  Please choose a survey based on your relationship with the school district.  You may complete multiple surveys if they apply to you (for example, you are both a staff member AND a parent with children enrolled in the school district), but please only complete each survey once. Your perception of the safety in our buildings is very important to us.  Any information received from these surveys will be shared with the Vulnerability Assessment Team and the Safety Committee during their meetings as they review building reports, identify the top five district safety issues, and develop recommendations for changes to the Comprehensive Safe School Plan.  Thank you in advance for the consideration given to participating in these surveys.


  • Shamokin Area Elementary School will be registering children for the 2017 - 2018 kindergarten program.  Children must be 5 years old by the first day of school, which is tentatively set for Tuesday, September 5, 2017.
