Emmaus High School Art and Humanities students went to Europe for educational travel this spring 2018. Every two years, Lisa Caruso, EHS Art Department Chair, organizes this trip and the itineraries vary each time. This year’s itinerary brought students to both Greece and Italy. Travelers flew through the night arriving in Athens on day two of the ten-day trip. Students were amazed to explore the ancient roots of Western culture at the Acropolis in Athens and were attentive to the guide’s discussions of the activities at the Sanctuary of Apollo in Delphi.

We are delighted to announce that the first wave of EPSD Connects devices have arrived! We anticipate that brand new Chromebooks will be available to every Sixth Grade student at both Middle Schools in early May. At the elementary level, 15 iPads will arrive in all Kindergarten, First, and Second Grade classrooms, and every Third Grade student will receive an individual iPad. During this first stage, students will not bring the devices home. However, students will have the opportunity to use the tools in their classrooms on a daily basis. We are excited about the beginning of this journey and hope you will stay tuned for more updates regarding the evolution of teaching and learning in East Penn
