Central Dauphin School District's e-communications program helps to get timely communication from our schools out to the public. We feel e-Communications will provide a better way to reach out to our parents and students while reducing the amount of paper sent home. Some information may continue to come home in paper form. Copies of all information on the website will also be stored in school offices. However, we are looking to move the vast majority of the information that goes home to our web site.
We recognize that some parents do not have the opportunity to reliably use our web site on a regular basis. For those families, Central Dauphin will make paper copies of relevant flyers available to your child on a weekly basis. To get paper copies, you simply need to contact the school office. A packet of papers will be gathered each week for your child to pick up at the office. We thank you for your cooperation with this initiative.

Paxtonia Elementary was selected to receive the National Agriculture in the Classroom TSC Garden Grant. Our 5th grade students will research, plan and build a garden/outdoor learning space. Students will also manage and donate our garden's harvest to a local food bank.
Paxtonia Elementary is focused on creating engaging student centered and personalized learning experiences for all students. We are committed to the integration of technology as well as active student learning to build 21st Century skills in our students. Currently, we are building an innovation laboratory. This space will create an opportunity for students to collaborate, invent and learn through play. If you would like to support our efforts please drop off supply or fund donations to the school office. Below is an attachment that outlines some of the common items we need to supply our projects as well as a few pictures of our current progress. A student has already created a robot for our laboratory!!! With your support and our students' creativity we know great things are to come. Thank you for all your help in this process.
