On behalf of the administration at Shamokin Area Middle/High School, I am excited to welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year! We are looking forward to a successful school year filled with enriching experiences to ensure that our students reach their highest potential. We know that a strong partnership between parents and teachers will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out that responsibility. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she: 1) Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience. 2) Completes all homework assignments given by teachers. 3) Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills. 4) Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life. 5) Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject. 6) Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and go on to higher learning. We are proud of our school family and thank you for your support.

These free, downloadable tools are helpful to inform parents of the definition of bullying and how to support their children. The PA Bullying Prevention Toolkit and companion guides can be accessed at:
