Home and School Council Banquet

In the spring of 2008 many staff members of Ziegler Elementary School were given Teacher/Staff Merit Awards at the Home and School Council Banquet. The people receiving these awards were Kelly Biggins, Natalie Bosshardt, Denise Rutherford and Kim Adair. Our Home and School also received an award for their outstanding commitment. Hundreds of people were there and many schools in Philadelphia were represented. Mayor Nutter even showed up to give a speech.

All About Cyber Bullying

Talking to your child and keeping a dialogue is always the best way to keep your child safe from online predators and cyber bullying. There are also monitoring tools that will keep you abreast of what sites your child goes to and who they talk to. Top 10 Monitoring Tools

PSSA Prep:
With the PSSA testing starting soon, it's good to keep your child in practice. We use many tools in the classroom to help. Your child has a password for First in Math and Study Island. We have been practicing on these websites in the classroom. Your child also has a username to access Schoolnet. Schoolnet has many resources to help your child in Math and Reading. He/She can create quizzes to help him/her to understand the lessons being taught in the classroom. All you need is internet access.

Uniform Policy:
Ziegler Elementary School requires your child to wear a uniform everyday. Shirts must have a collar and should be tucked in.
Pants: Navy or Khaki
Shirts: Yellow, White or Blue

Are you tired of paying high prices for uniforms? Are you tired of going to the store only to find there are no more uniforms in your child's size? I know, as a parent, that is extremely frustrating. I have ordered uniforms from Marcus Uniforms online . They are great quality (French Toast) and cheaper in price. Check it out!
