    The summer months of the 2019- 20 school year is coming to an end. This past and upcoming school year will be like no other as we have had to overcome a world pandemic, shift the landscape of educational delivery, and transform our homes into office spaces and/ or classrooms as we prepare for another virtual learning start. Depite all of the obstacles, hurdles, and challenges... It is our hope that your child(ren) have learned various academic and character skills throughout the past year. The staff of Sharon Hill School has worked diligently to ensure that all of the children will be able to grow and develop in their skills and strategies as we enter into the new upcoming 2020-21 school year. The teachers are planning and will complete the necessary academic components of teaching while simultaneously teaching appropriate behavioral (restorative practice) skills/ strategies while embedding the necessary support to ensure student success regardless of delivery method (virtual, hybrid, or full in-person instruction). 

    We hope, that as much as possible, you and your family are having a safe and happy summer as the students prepare to return to their academic sessions in just a few weeks. In the same note, we are awaiting, anticipating and planning for the upcoming 2020-21 virtual start of the school year. As we close out the summer months and prepare for the new and exciting upcoming school year, be sure to continually read and engage in summer experiential activities that will build your child's capacity and expand their knowledge base. We also ask that all parents read (and review with your children) the Parent Virtual Guide, which can be accessed and printed from this website. Once the school year gets underway, please be sure that students keep your contact information up to date and remain in constant communication with your child's teacher. Your child will be expected to follow their established schedule, engage in the class sessions, complete and return assignments in a timely manner, and utilize teacher office hours for questions, concerns, or assistance. We will continually build on to your child's strong academic basis, but it is going to take the commitment of not only the Sharon Hill School staff, but also our awesome Sharon Hill families.  Remember, you can access your child's teacher's at anytime via email, which can be found on the school webpage. Also, children in grades 3-8 academic information can be accessed at anytime throughout the school year by logging into the Unified Classroom (PowerSchool) link on the district's main page.

    We look forward to what this coming school year will hold as we close out the summer months and prepare for the new and exciting upcoming school year! Also, we welcome Mr. Ruane to Sharon Hill School where he will continue to serve in his role as Assistant Principal. Best wishes to Dr. Gibbs-Tapper as she embarks upon her new role within Southeast Delco School District.

    During the school year, Sharon Hill School students are expected to be in school by 8:40 AM. The school day ends each day at 3:20 PM, unless your child has an assigned after school appointment/ activity that requires them to extend their stay.

    We look forward to continually work with you and your child(ren) here at Sharon Hill School throughout the upcoming school year!
