  • First Grade STEM Activity Day

    First-grade students received a visit from the Department of Energy's National Energy Technology Lab (NETL).  Students listened to a book about how ants perceive the world.   Following the read aloud, students were given lighted microscopes to explore the classroom through the eyes of an "ant".  The students had so much fun!

  • Career Cafe

    We had our first Career Cafe of 2017-2018. Special thanks to Mrs. DeVirgillio, Behavior Specialist for talking to our students about your job responsibilities and what skills are needed to perform your daily duties.
    Maybe you are asking, what is Career Cafe? Career Café is an opportunity for students to learn about careers from individuals in their community. This year, Career Café will be hosted in the library during lunchtime for 3rd and 4th grade students. The students will have an opportunity to eat their lunch as they hear fun facts and details about specific jobs, work schedules, and educational background relating to the job.
    As a parent/guardian, your role in this process is vital. You are very influential on a student’s career exploration process and ultimately in high school their career decisions. Consequently, you can influence the quality of the career exploration process by your support and involvement.
    We are always looking for speakers, please contact the school at 724-446-5503 if you are willing to spend 30 minutes with us.

Playground Bids Accepted

We are accepting bids for a new playground structure at the HW Good Elementary School (1464 Herminie West Newton Rd, Herminie PA 15637) from now until September 23, 2016.  If you are interested in seeing a design we have in mind, please contact principal Larcinese at 724-446-5503 ext. 5021.  Thank you

Last year, our school began it’s journey to attain a brand-new, safer, cleaner, and more physically engaging playground that is accessible to every child, regardless of abilities.  Our current playground equipment has been in place for nearly two decades, and it has slowly deteriorated.  A main priority of the Playground Committee is to create a much larger space, in an environment that is both fun and safe for typical children, as well as those with intellectual and physical disabilities.

With the assistance of the Sewickley Township Supervisors, the school has applied for multiple grants, but we still need your help if we hope to break ground as soon as possible!  All of our children will benefit from this project, and we are hoping that, collaboratively, we can make the dreams of H.W. Good Elementary School students come true!


From landscaping to excavation to new equipment, we need your help to meet our goal of health & wellness for our community and our students.  For information on how you can help, or how we plan to transform our goal into reality, please visit the RESOURCES section below.  Thank you for your support!


We are raising money through many different platforms to reach our Ultimate Goal.  A quick and easy way to donate online is to go through our GO FUND ME page!  The goals established through Go Fund Me are not the total cost of the playground, and more may be added as we become successful.  We are setting benchmarking goals until we reach the ultimate goal of a completed playground.  Click the link below to donate!


Throughout the fundraising process we will be rewarding you for your generous help. Every time we reach a benchmark goal, one of the staff members will do something exciting!!! Here are some of the pledge goals!

Please consider a donation to help us bring The Playground of Our Dreams Project to life.  With your support, we will create a much larger space, in an environment that is both fun and safe for typical children, as well as those with intellectual and physical disabilities.  Your generous gift will make possible the play area that all children in our community can enjoy!
