There's more land at the Arendtsville Elementary School facility, therefore more room to play, said Upper Adams School District Superintendent Wesley Doll.

Ten lucky students got to dig in the dirt as a symbolic start to the Arendtsville Elementary expansion. As a result, Bendersville Elementary will close at the end of this school year.

The Canner Man could be working overtime next year.

“We’re looking to all be Canners from K to 12,” Superintendent Wesley Doll said during Tuesday’s school board meeting.


Its been nearly 20 years, but I still remember how excited I was to sit down in my home room classroom and catch up on all the news and sports in the edition of the Gettysburg Times tucked under my desk every morning. That’s all provided by Newspapers in Education and local sponsors.

The program has changed a bit, but now as the NIE director at the Times, I’m thrilled to be the guy that can help make that possible.

If you’re interested in helping me by sponsoring a classroom, I’d be more than happy to help make this happen. Please reach out! Last but certainly not least, thanks to last year’s sponsors!

In 2013, as the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg neared, Times Staff Writer Jim Hale interviewed then Gettysburg Mayor William Troxell.
"The Battle of Gettysburg didn't happen as long ago as it seems," Hale reported in 2013. "Gettysburg's current mayor once met a Confederate soldier on the battlefield."
"My generation followed the Civil War generation the same way today's generation is following the World War II generation," Troxell told Hale.
Tomorrow, your children will be given an opportunity similar to Mayor Troxell's in 1938.
Gettysburg Marks 75th Anniversary of D-Day tomorrow at 4:45 p.m. on Lincoln Square. Please give your children the chance to tell similar stories in 2094.

Parents & Students: Screen time documentary April 15, 6:30 p.m. @ Biglerville HS. 🤳💻

On Monday, April 15, 2019 at 6:30 p.m., Biglerville High School will be hosting a screening of the documentary, Screenagers. Through personal stories and input from leading researchers, Screenagers sheds light on the impact screen time is having on kids.

The documentary explores how learning, playing, and socializing online affects teens' developing attention span, fragile self-esteem, and moral instincts. Screenagers examines the real risks of failing in school, social isolation, and digital addiction. Ultimately, the film explores solutions to handle screen time and provides parents with tools to help young people develop self-control and find balance in their digital lives.

The Upper Adams School District would like to invite parents and students to this screening. Please join us at Biglerville High School on Monday, April 15, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium.
