Neon Glow Tutoring Fun

Students from the RAISE (Reinforcing Academic Instruction for Student Excellence) tutoring program at Solomon-Plains Elementary School have been practicing short vowel sounds.  They focused on spelling patterns by building a craft and reading/writing words that go with the short vowel.  The students were able to use highlighters, neon crayons, and neon colored pencils.  Their work was displayed in the hallway and our Principal, Mr. Justin Correll shut the hallway lights off, turned on black lights, and all of the students' hard work then GLOWED!

Important Dates

PSSA Information

The PA Department of Education requires annual administration of English Language Arts, Mathematics and Science Assessments in grades 3 through 8. Every Pennsylvania student in third through eighth grade is to be assessed in English and Language Arts and Math using the Pennsylvania System School Assessment (PSSA). Students in fourth and eighth grade are also assessed in science by taking a PSSA exam. We ask that you do not schedule any family vacations during this time. These assessments are important in determining how well our students perform in relation to the state standards and our curriculum.

PA State testing dates are listed below:

English Language Arts: April 22 – April 26

Math and Science: April 29 - May 3 (Math grades 3-8, Science is grades 4 & 8 only)

The following documents will be provided as we approach the testing dates:
