Each year, G.C. Hartman Elementary Center kicks off the statewide assessments with a fun-filled and highly-entertaining variety show which features the school's teachers and staff as the main acts! Using a PSSA Idol format, the energetic staff perform musical selections for SCA's third and fourth grade students while encouraging them to relax, think positive and try their best on the PSSAs. This year's PSSA Idol theme was "songs from the 70's and 80's." In addition to some great music, teachers and staff presented advice on how to be successful with the PSSA's. April will be a busy month for these young students with the State assessments being administered April 12-15, April 19-21 and April 26th and 28th.
 
Elementary Principal John Fetterman offers a few simple tips during testing weeks: Go to bed early and get a good night's rest; Eat a healthy breakfast and bring a healthy snack; Attend school every day and be on time; and Think positive and try your best!
