Changes await students upon start of new year
Amy Scibek is leaving Wyoming Valley West as State Street Elementary
School principal to become principal at Greater Nanticoke Area High School.
Also at Greater Nanticoke Area, the district is temporarily closing Kennedy
Elementary School this year because of an upcoming construction and renovation
Because Kennedy Elementary will be closed, second-grade students will
attend the Elementary Center and fifth-grade students will attend the
Educational Center. Both schools are at the Kosciuszko Street campus in
Elementary school students will be getting new Google Chromebook computers
to use in their classrooms, and teachers in grades K-7 will use a new
mathematics program called Go Math, Superintendent Ronald
Grevera said. The new series provides teachers with a variety of Common
Core-aligned materials, and officials hope it increases math achievement
in the district.
As the new high school principal, Scibek will be examining the STEM (Science,
Technology, Engineering and Math) curriculum, Grevera said. The district
is adding a new high school course Scientific Research and Design.
Its intended to introduce students to the skills needed for technical
careers such as engineering and scientific research, Grevera said.
