Back to school shopping? As you back to school shop, please consider purchasing a gift card to Sam’s Club, Wal-Mart, or Giant Eagle or food to donate to the “Backpacks-to-go program. “
As a reminder, the “Backpacks-to-Go” Program is a supplemental nutrition program that was piloted in the Penn-Trafford School District in April 2014 and went district-wide in the 2014-2015 school year. Through the “Backpacks-to-Go” program, we provide a backpack filled with easy-to-prepare meals and snacks for weekends to our children. This program was developed in response to ongoing student needs with no weekend access to the school breakfast and/or lunch program. This program will continue district-wide for the 2015-2016 school year.

Community Service Reminder
This is a reminder that 30 hours of Community Service is a graduation requirement. Community Service will be given for voluntary activities that help others or are beneficial to the community. Students earn credit for hours spent participating in the actual activity, not for meeting and planning. Participation in athletics, band, chorus and drama are not eligible for community service credit. Attached is a letter of explanation of the Community Service Credits. We have had 100% participation from every graduating class at Penn-Trafford. Many of our students have already completed this requirement and have turned in their forms to the Guidance Office. Your son/daughter should take advantage of this during the summer months to complete their community service, download and return the COMMUNITY SERVICE FORM.
The new schedules are now listed on this website. Please click on the bus roster links to see the 2015-16 school year.
