Students at Haverford Elementary Schools celebrated completing 100 days of school.
At Manoa Elementary School, Ms. White's 1st graders celebrated the 100th day of school by getting into character and dressing up as 100 year olds. They also wrote personal narratives about what it would be like to be 100.
At Chatham Park Elementary School, Ms. Shaiman's fifth grade class and Ms. Pivovarnik's first grade class are best buddies. The fifth graders mentor and encourage the first graders. To celebrate 100 days of school, the two classes held a 100 Days olympics!
Due to the additional weather day this week, we are revising the 2013-2014 Instructional Calendar. The Pennsylvania Department of Education has provided guidance, which will allow Haverford, as of this date, March 4, 2014, to take Wednesday, June 18, 2014, as an additional instructional day. If other weather days are necessary we would first turn to Monday, April 21, 2014 and then to the week of April 14 (Spring Break) and add instructional days as necessary.
