Encore to Provide a Weekend of High-Flying Entertainment!

For the past ten years, Encore's talented cast and crew have provided the Southern Columbia community with high-energy, thoroughly-entertaining performances. This year's Encore team has done it again, producing a "high-flying" musical, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, perhaps "the most fantasmagorical stage musical in the history of everything!"

K-12 Art Show Announced!

Art teachers Mrs. Tia Brown and Mrs. Casie Baker have announced the annual districtwide Art Show will be held April 4th. Kindergarten through Fourth Grade students will display their artwork in the G.C. Hartman Elementary Center's cafeteria and Large Group Area from 6:00 to 8:00 PM.

Thank You!

Many thanks are extended to SCA's Maintenance Department, Township and PennDOT road crews, and all unsung volunteers for their tireless efforts in cleaning up the wintry mess left behind by Winter Storm Stella.
