There was plenty of glitz, glam and fun around the world at Prom. Watch a slideshow below to get a glimpse of this special night for our seniors. While it's tough to gild the lily that is the Omni William Penn, the decorations depicting locations around the world (including the Eiffel Tower in the Ballroom) provided a spectacular backdrop for the evening. Special thanks go to Mrs.Kolko, parent volunteers and faculty for making the night such a success. The students looked amazing, but most of all they looked like they were having a ball at the ball.

The Allegheny Intermediate Unit's Regional Wide Area Network (RWAN) is changing Internet providers this summer. Since the District uses the RWAN for our internet service, we will be transitioning to the RWAN's new provider on June 27 at approximately 11:00am. We expect the transition to be a momentary interruption in Internet access for our internal network users. For people attempting to access our hosted resources (Dashboard, blogs, etc.) from outside the District, there may be a delay of a few hours while our new external IP addresses propagate across the Internet.
