SPOTLIGHT STORY: Indian Crest's Student Staff Challenge
Indian Crest's first Student Staff Challenge Club was a huge success; over 80 students and more than a dozen teachers showed up to brave the inclement weather in order to play a great game of capture the flag, eat some well-prepared hot dogs, and strengthen the student-teacher bond here at our school. The club will be held once each month, after school, and allows students and staff the chance to interact and compete in various fun challenges! Obviously, one goal of the club is for all involved to have some fun, but we are also hoping it can be a time for some of Crest's kids to get some face time and interaction time with adults in an organized, positive setting.

SPOTLIGHT VIDEO - Kiducation: Camping
Students from E.M.C.'s Kindergarten LEO classroom partnered with students from Richard Curtis' high school video production class to create the very first Souderton Area School District Kiducation Video. The high school students chose the theme of camping and created segments related to the topic. The video is currently being aired on the Souderton cable channel and was designed to provide an educational experience to preschool students living in our district. This video project was successful due to the collaboration of many District Office, E.M.C. Elementary, and SAHS students, teachers, and staff.

From Frank T. Gallagher, Superintendent of Schools
On Monday, August 31st, the halls of our schools will be filled with the energy and enthusiasm that always accompanies the first day of school. It often seems as if the time between June and August passes quickly. Hopefully, that is because this time was filled with relaxation and creating memories with families and friends.
I am so proud of our faculty and staff, many of whom worked throughout the summer consistently contributing to the success of our school district. Last school year was filled with success, and when I look at the post high school plans of our graduates, I continue to be impressed with the variety of their choices. Whether it is two-year or four-year colleges, military, or the workforce, our alumni do well. This success is most often a result of 13 years of excellent teaching by our faculty and staff.
This year we will continue this excellence as we implement a new middle school math program, an updated elementary Everyday Math curriculum, a Kindergarten phonics program, and the increased integration of technology into our classrooms. All of these changes are designed to help our students achieve in an increasingly complex and interconnected world. Read the full Superintendent's Corner
