Good Morning America is Visiting Spring-Ford
Good Morning America and Pennsylvania Treasurer Stacy Garrity will be in McNelly Stadium for this Friday night's playoff football game against Central Bucks South to return unclaimed money to members of the Spring-Ford and Central Bucks communities! The PA Treasury Department has more than $4.5 billion in unclaimed property (such as old bank accounts and uncashed checks) – and it belongs to about 1 in 10 Pennsylvanians.
Good Morning America and PA Treasury will have a table where they can quickly look up your name to see if any of that money belongs to you! So, in addition to supporting Spring-Ford's football team, you'll have a chance to go home with some newfound cash – and maybe see yourself on a future episode of Good Morning America!
Reminder: there will be no cash sales at the gate, and, per PIAA rules, Gold Card passes will not be accepted. Click here to buy your tickets before the game.
Report Card Reminder
All report cards will be available via Skyward by 4 p.m. on November 15, 2023.

Student Spotlight - QPR Workshops
Students in grade 9 participated in QPR training last month. QPR; Question, Persuade, and Refer are three steps that anyone can learn to offer hope through positive action to reduce suicidal behavior of people, and gain skills to prevent a possible tragedy. Certified trained staff from Access Services will conduct the training within students’ classrooms.
Each student received their own QPR booklet designed to be part of the interactive training and may be used as a resource. The overall objective of the training was to learn the warning signs of suicide crisis and how to Question, Persuade, and Refer someone for help. In addition to the QPR trainers, students worked in homerooms on team building exercises to promote positive communication skills, establish stronger peer relationships, and generate acceptance and value amongst their peers.
