Volunteers In Paupack Club Collecting Shoes for Recycling

The WAHS Volunteers in Paupack club is teaming up with the Rerun Shoes organization to collect gently used footwear. Rerun Shoes helps multiple African nations by creating small businesses and providing an affordable shoe option to those who need it the most. The donated shoes are sent to Mali, Guinea, Morocco, and Liberia to be sold at a fraction of their original cost. Not only does Rerun Shoes help African nations, but they also help employ the disabled here in America and help the planet by recycling responsibly.

Volunteers in Paupack will be collecting gently used shoes from March 23rd until April 10th. Drop-off boxes will be located throughout the High School and in the Hawley Public Library. The donated footwear must be in decent condition; there cannot be any holes, tears, or any major damage. Rerun Shoes can use athletic shoes, cleats, sneakers, women's flats, men's shoes, and kid's shoes. Some shoes they cannot use include flip flops, crocs, winter/rain boots, heels, and damaged shoes.

It's about time for spring cleaning, and instead of throwing out those shoes you never wear, donate them to Volunteers in Paupack for Rerun Shoes! Everyone has one or two pairs of shoes that just sit in the back of the closet, so why not give them to such an outstanding cause? For more information, you can visit the website at http://www.rerunshoes.com .

Little League Continues Challenger Division
for Children with Disabilities

Has your son or daughter expressed interest in playing organized baseball only to be prevented from doing so by a physical or mental disability? Do you want him or her to give our national pastime a try? Then Little League's Challenger Division might just be for you. Established in 1989, Challenger Division gives mentally and physically challenged boys and girls the opportunity to enjoy the full benefits of participation in a Little League program structured to their abilities. Playing with the same uniforms and equipment on the same fields, participants have the opportunity to experience the joys of pulling together as a team, being cheered, earning awards for their achievements, and learning about the game of baseball, maybe even become a fan.

Challenger Division accommodates girls and boys ages 5-18 or anyone still enrolled in high school, and is designed for those who would otherwise not have the opportunity to play in an organized baseball league. Students from any school district are equally welcome.

Sign-ups are on-line at http://www.eteamz.com/wallenpaupacklittleleague. The costs for this program are being underwritten by the Pike County Bar Association Community Outreach Program, as well as Hawley, Honesdale and Newfoundland Rotary Clubs and through its sponsorship registration fees will be waived.

Practices and games will take place Saturday mornings from April 18 through June 27. The team has also been extended an invitation to play at PNC Field, home of the Scranton Rail Riders, on May 9 immediately following a Rail Riders game.

For more information you can log onto www.littleleaguechallenger.org, or you can go on YouTube and search "little league challenger division". You can also call Alan Cooper at (570)296-7726 for more details.


Notice Regarding Student Insurance - Updated for 2014-2015!

Please be advised that it is the responsibility of the parents/guardians, in the event of a student accident, to provide for accidental injury expenses either through insurance or cash payment to health care providers. For this reason, the School District would like to make you aware of the availability of a low cost, standard school approved insurance policy.

The School District does not provide insurance coverage for students. If you do not have insurance or the financial ability to cover potential injury expenses, we encourage you to review this Student Accident Insurance document.

If you choose to purchase insurance through this program, please have your child return the completed insurance form with your payment to their school and it will be forwarded to the insurance company to process.

We hope this program can be a valuable service for you and your family.

Pennsylvania School Performance Profile Overview

The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) has made significant changes in how student achievement is being reported and calculated for schools and districts in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania. PDE has released what is known as the Pennsylvania School Performance Profile. The public site (http://www.paschoolperformance.org) provides an academic performance score for public schools in the state. The performance score is designed with several purposes in mind:

  • To inform the public of school performance;
  • To provide a building level score for educators as part of their evaluation system;
  • To allow the public to compare schools across the state;
  • To give schools a methodology to analyze their strengths and needs.

While public schools across the states have previously received designations under No Child Left Behind, schools will now receive a performance score based upon many data points. Test scores, progress in closing achievement gaps, and degree of student growth over time are factored into the scoring while other identifiers of high achieving schools are also considered: graduation, promotion, and attendance rates as well as evidence of offering rigorous courses factor into the calculation. Schools may also earn extra points beyond the 100 point scoring system for those students who have earned advanced scores of the state, industry, and Advanced Placement exams.

In addition to the scoring aspect of the site, the public can compare schools across the state. For schools, the site also offers supports for schools to consider as they identify needs in their academic profile. Administrators and staff in our district have begun to review the data.
