Earlier this week, information about the upcoming Spring Book Fair was distributed to our families. Please be advised that in order for you to come to school during your child's scheduled Library Special time and shop with your child, you MUST either already be a cleared volunteer OR sign in as a visitor with your driver's license. No exceptions can be made. Thank you for your understanding of our efforts to keep our children safe while continuing to provide opportunities to visit our school.
An Invitation to Families New to Worcester Elementary
We are excited to welcome Eagleville students and families to our Worcester community. Please join us on May 3 at 6:00 PM for an opportunity to tour your new school. Current Worcester students will be on hand to speak with you during your self-guided tour of our facility.
On Saturday, the Worcester Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts & Environmental Club were part of the annual garden clean-up & mulching day. The gardens look fabulous! Many thanks to the all the hands that helped to make it happen! Thank you, Mrs. Keller, for organizing this event to beautify our school!
A reminder to parents of all Third and Fourth Grade students that the PSSA for mathematics is scheduled for next week, Monday through Wednesday, April 24 to April 26. Thank you for your continued support during these important assessments.
Worcester continues to use the Lobby Guard electronic security system for all signing in and out of our school building. Parents and visitors will need to have their driver's license to sign in and out of the building. This includes scheduled visits to the building as well as signing your child in or out of the building. While this presents some inconvenience of time, please know that it is being done in the best interest of keeping our children safe. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Our annual but shortened Spring Break will take place Friday, April 14 and Monday April 17. Best wishes to everyone in our Worcester Family for a happy, healthy, and fun break!
Our theme this year is “Leading the P.A.C.K. with Pride, Achievement, Creativity, and Kindness.” Each month, we will recognize students from each of our grade levels who are exemplifying Worcester pride, achievement, creativity and kindness. One girl and one boy from each class will be recognized as “Leaders of the P.A.C.K.” and each will receive a certificate, medal, and magnet. Additionally, they will be recognized by having their picture displayed on the monitor in the front lobby of our school and on our school website. We congratulate the following “Leaders of the P.A.C.K.” for the month of March:
Kindergarten: Anabelle Byrne, Connor Maguire
First Grade: Lyla Gottfrid, Landon Wunsch
Second Grade: Baylor Rhoads, Preston Iademarco
Third Grade: Eva Rojas-Lezcano, Wesley Robinson
Fourth Grade: Katherine Picozzi, Tyler Chapman

Dear Jeffrey Jacobs:
On behalf of the American Heart Association and the millions of Americans we serve, thank you very much for your school's donation of *$3,229.10. Families and schools are critical links in providing the foundation for cardiovascular wellness in our country. By holding this event at your school each year, you raise awareness about heart-healthy living. And you help us fund more lifesaving scientific research and critically needed education efforts. Thank you.
Almost every family in America is touched by heart disease or stroke, and your school's contribution will significantly impact our fight against these devastating illnesses.
We hope that you, your faculty and your students found this lifesaving effort rewarding and enjoyable. You are touching so many lives — and life is why we exist as an organization. Your help and support are greatly appreciated, and we look forward to partnering again with you next year!
Worcester's annual Family Game Night bingo event is scheduled for this Friday, April 7. Please see the flyer sent home with your child yesterday and come out Friday night for an awesome evening of family fun!
