  • S.P.I.R.I.T. Behavior For October

    • Our SPIRIT behavior for the month of October is Empathy - Empathy is the feeling that you understand and share another person's experiences and emotions or the ability to share someone else's feelings.  You can show empathy by showing compassion or concern for others. You can be kind to others. You can help or assist without being asked. There are lots of ways to show empathy. Remember that one kind word can change someone’s entire day!   Every day in the morning think to yourself - How will you show empathy today?
    • At the end of the day ask your self - How did you show empathy today? If you cannot think of a time when you showed empathy, please think of ways you can work harder tomorrow. Be kind to one another as everyone is fighting a battle that you may know nothing about.

  • Supplemental Medical Insurance

     Neshaminy is offering parents and guardians the opportunity to purchase a low-cost primary excess group insurance plan for students to supplement their family medical insurance.  The district does not carry medical insurance on students, and student accident insurance can help you eliminate the possibility of out-of-pocket expenses, since many group insurance policies no longer pay full hospital and medical expenses and may require a deductible or co-insurance. For more information and enrollment forms, click here.
