Message from Dr. Dion Betts

  • Good evening,
    The Chambersburg Area School District has been working to provide a safe environment for staff and students; with orders from the Pennsylvania Department of Education, continuous learning activities for students in grades Kindergarten through 12. We are very pleased to announce that, beginning Monday, March 30, 2020, projects for your children will be posted to their school’s individual website. 

    The projects will range in complexity and some of the projects will be separated into smaller segments for an easier approach for learning. There are different project concepts that have been selected for grade levels. We hope that the entire family can be involved in the creation of the projects with your child(ren). Many resources can be used to reference and research answers to questions. Be creative in your approach to assisting your child. Our district website also has a wealth of information under the Educational Links page

    Chambersburg Area School District teachers from your school will be reaching out to your family and children to give support. Communication from them may be in email, Zoom, Google Meet or even by phone. We want communication between teachers and families to be a key element during this process. These projects are for enrichment purposes for your child to support them during this time of school closure. The topics for the different projects are “Building a Positive Community”, “Investigating Our World” and COVID – 19 and Its Impact”. These topics will be developed to allow for activities involving Reading and Writing, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies and other subjects.

    Please note that enrichment projects are very highly suggested, needed and wanted, but they are not required nor will they be graded.

    We are excited to offer the enrichment projects for continuous instruction. Many districts are doing the same approach as Chambersburg and we want to put the needs of the students at the forefront. We are committed to providing your child with the best education.

    Best regards,

    Dr. Dion Betts
    Superintendent of Schools
