    Attention Kindergarten Families!

    You are invited to a family workshop hosted by Albert Schweitzer teachers where you will learn about how you can support your child's literacy development at home. This will be a night where you and your Kindergartener can "play" with literacy together.

    Albert Schweitzer's Kindergarten Literacy Night will be on February 15, 2023 from 5:00-6:30 p.m. We will convene as a whole group in the library before moving to breakout sessions in Kindergarten classrooms. After the event, you will walk away with literacy activities that are fun, meaningful, and easy to do when you are at home. You will also receive materials and books to bring home. We hope you will join the fun that literacy has to offer! We encourage families to bring Kindergarten students to this event. We appreciate your involvement in growing our students together in partnership. 

    To register for this event, please use the Sign-Up Genius:


    At Albert Schweitzer Elementary School, we believe that success for our students can only be achieved when schools and families work together as a team. 

    Dear Neshaminy Families,
    Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)

    The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) is the federal K-12 education law of the United States. ESSA was signed into law in 2015 and replaced the previous education law called “No Child Left Behind.” ESSA extended more flexibility to States in education and laid out expectations of transparency for parents and for communities.

    ESSA requires every state to measure performance in reading, math, and science. Each state determines the way students are assessed. Every school in each state must inform parents about their standards and their results.

    In this newsletter you will find a link to Pennsylvania’s Core Standards. Additionally, you will find information about school performance at the Future Ready PA Index site. The Future Ready PA Index uses four different approaches in scoring and depicting student progress and performance.

    Did You Know About Title I?
    • Under ESSA, Title I is the largest federally funded educational program in the United States.
    • It provides supplemental funds to assist schools with the highest student concentrations of poverty to meet school educational goals.
    • Title I is designed to help students achieve proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards.
    • It provides funds to districts to assist schools with the highest levels of economically disadvantaged children for improving student achievement, staff development, and parent and community engagement.

    PA Core Standards

    Assessment is a process of evaluating student performance to determine what content and skills have been mastered. Assessment enables school leaders and educators to make informed decisions about instructional practices and effective pedagogical approaches to maximize student achievement levels. Effective assessment is an integral part of the teaching and learning process. Well-designed assessments can give valuable information to teachers, parents, and students.
