SAT is Coming to Kennard-Dale High School

Through the new SAT School Day program, students will now be able to take the SAT at KD on selected dates throughout the school year.  For this year, School Counselors will be administering the SAT on Tuesday, April 10th.  For students who work, have sports on Saturdays, or who would rather take the SAT in the familiar surroundings of their own school, this is a great opportunity.  The cost is the same - $46 for the SAT without the essay or $60 with the essay.  There are fee reductions for students on free/reduced lunch.  Interested students should sign up in the Kennard-Dale Guidance Office by February 13, 2018.

The Kennard-Dale High School Drama Club will present Disney’s The Little Mermaid on Thursday and Friday, March 8th and 9th, at 7:00 p.m; on Saturday, March 10th, at 1:00 and 7:00 p.m.; and on Sunday, March 11th, at 3:00 p.m.  Tickets will be available for purchase, beginning Tuesday, February 20th, on the district website at  The cost is $10.00 for students and senior citizens, and $12.00 for adults.  All tickets will be $15.00 at the door.

The musical Disney’s The Little Mermaid is about a young mermaid princess, Ariel (played by Paije Carbonell), who dreams of nothing more than to walk on the land above her undersea home.  The only problem is that her royal father, King Triton (played by Michaelangelo Raras), has forbidden her to go on land.  But when Ariel rescues the handsome Prince Eric (played by Noah Tart), she immediately falls head over heels for him.  So, what does she do?  She strikes a bargain with the evil sea witch, Ursula (played by Julia Wecker), to trade her fins and her lovely voice for human legs.  However, Ursula has her own plans for Ariel, which includes getting revenge on Ariel’s father.

For more information, please contact Mr. James R. Craley at Kennard-Dale High School, 393 Main Street, Fawn Grove, PA 17321, Phone 717-382-4871.

Stewartstown Elementary worked with an Artist in Residence during the month of December.  The school worked with award winning musician, Steven Courtney, to write and record a school song.  Every Tuesday and Thursday during December, the students met with Mr. Courtney by grade level to write the words, design the melody, select the genre of music, and finally record the song.  The school-wide RAMS-for-Life rules were used as the foundation for the words and the theme of the song.  The experience ended with a school wide assembly on December 21, 2017 where Mr. Courtney performed the song and several of his other songs for all to enjoy.  A recording of the students and Mr. Courtney singing the new song can be heard on this link:



New Alternative for Senior Year

Students who want to get an early jump on their college education can now attend Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology in place of attending Kennard-Dale High School for their senior year.  Students would spend the full day on the TSCT campus earning credits towards their high school diploma and their first year of a 2-year Associate’s Degree simultaneously.  Students can choose from 24 majors including Architectural Tech, Automotive Tech, Business Administration, CADD, Computer Software Engineering, HVAC, Welding, Plumbing, and Electronic Engineering Tech, among several others.  Another option would be to complete 9-month certificate programs in either Construction, Electrician, or General Machinist majors.  Tuition is $3,900 per year, but students can apply for financial aid.  Students who qualify for free or reduced lunch are typically eligible for the Stevens Grant which means they can attend for free if they meet the admissions criteria.  Interested juniors should be applying now for this senior year opportunity.  Please contact the Kennard-Dale Guidance Office for more information at (717) 382-4871, extension 1830.
