Important Information

      We have reached the second half of the school year.     Second semester indicates the half-way mark of the school year and brings a lot of activities and events. Thank you in advance for your support. 

      In April, students in Grades 3-6 will participate in the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) exam beginning April 11-22, 2016. Regular dismissal will occur at 3:14 p.m.  Students in all grades are engaged in academic assessment and progress monitoring all year long, but the PSSA carries great significance because it is one of the key measures used on the School District’s School Progress Reports.

         Thank you for your continued support of our school. We appreciate that you are making certain that your child is attending school regularly and on-time. We can only teach those students who are present. We also appreciate your support of us in educating your children by having regular conversations with your child about school and the importance of their full participation in class and completion of assignments.

Parent Handbook

School Advisory Council

Pollock School has an active School Advisory Council. 

What is a School Advisory Council?  A School Advisory Council (SAC) is a forum for exchanging ideas about how to improve student achievement among the school's stakeholders: principal, teachers, school staff, parents, students, and community members. SACs are the overall leadership structure at each school.

 As a School Advisory Council Member you will have the opportunity to

ü     Contribute to the shared goal of improving student achievement.

ü     Be informed about what’s happening at your school.

ü     Be an important partner in the education system, whose views are valued.

ü     Have a vehicle through which to express opinions.

What is the primary role of the SAC?

The primary role is to participate in the decision-making process that ensures that the needs of all students are specifically addressed in the overall education plan for the school.  School Advisory Councils are forums for open discussion and problem-solving related to student achievement.
