Welcome to the Greencastle-Antrim Primary School

My name is Angela Singer. I have been the principal at Greencastle-Antrim Primary School since the 2007-2008 school year. It is an honor and privilege to be at the service of an outstanding faculty and the wonderful parents and students that make up the community of Greencastle.

I would like to welcome you to Greencastle-Antrim Primary School. The Primary School is committed to making each student’s school experience positive, safe and successful. We are comprised of kindergarten through second grades with approximately 625 students. In addition to the language arts and math curriculum, we provide each student with opportunities in art, music, computer, wellness, and library. During the 2008-2009 school year we implemented a full day kindergarten program for all of our kindergarten students. The full day kindergarten program transitions students into a formal school setting while providing them with rigorous literacy, numeracy, and social experiences.

The Primary School staff is dedicated to helping each student reach his or her fullest potential. This is accomplished through a rich learning environment that is tailored to meet individual student needs. We are committed to setting high academic expectations for all students centered on the Pennsylvania Academic Standards. We believe that building a strong foundation will provide students with the skills necessary to succeed throughout their lives.

The Primary School is fortunate to have strong parental support. Parents and other volunteers are encouraged to take part in the multiple school activities that occur throughout the year. We require that all volunteers comply with the Greencastle-Antrim School District’s policy on volunteering. Parents are also strongly encouraged to participate in their parent-teacher conferences that are scheduled in October and February. These conferences provide teachers and parents a forum to discuss academic progress, special things about the student, and develop plans for improvement. Working together is essential in order to experience optimal success!

Again, welcome to the Greencastle-Antrim Primary School. I, along with the entire staff, am eager to, “create and provide opportunities for all students to become lifelong learners and productive citizens”.
