District News: Gockley collecting canned food items

Wednesday, October 24, 2018 by The Press in School

Gockley Elementary School students are sharing a treat with their local community food bank. Continuing Oct. 25 and 26, bring in a canned food item.

There is a box at the school office to drop off the items. There will also be a box in the front of the main school entrance for families and friends to drop off any items when they come to watch the parades.

This is a great way for our students to learn the importance of helping and showing kindness to our neighbors and community.

WCSD is currently hiring bus drivers

Wednesday, October 10, 2018 by JULIE BECK in School

Whitehall-Coplay School District is looking for new members to join its fleet of bus drivers. The district has many current employees who have been driving for 17 to 23 years for the district. Although driving a bus filled with students can be a challenge, these drivers find many rewarding benefits.

Drivers agree the working hours are great, can be flexible and fit into many different schedules.

“It is an ideal job for a retired person who wants to keep busy or stay-at-home moms,” said Larry King, who has been a bus driver for WCSD for 23 years.
