PLES After School Program Grades 3-6

Dear Parents/Guardians, The Purchase Line School District is looking for input about interest in an after school program for grades 3-6. This program would take place Monday-Thursday on days that school is in session and would start after school and go to 5:00. Transportation would be provided. Students would receive a snack along with homework help, tutoring, and participate in other activities to help them grow both academically and emotionally. Students will get to work collaboratively with other students to problem solve and show their creativity through these various activities. We would like to start the program in February. After we determine the interest in this program we will send out enrollment forms to be filled out. Students would not be required to attend all four days, but they must attend on the days that you select if they are in school. If they are not attending then a prior written notice stating that they will not be attending must be received. If you would be interested in having your child attend the program please go to https://forms.gle/McJUvXvTC2Kz3DnD7 and fill out the form by January 18th. Thank you for your continued support and collaboration. Thank you, Travis Monroe & Jessica Lindsay

Western PA, a densely forested, unsettled wilderness was untouched by the hand of the settler, at least until after 1768. In that year on November 5, the Treaty of Fort Stanwix was signed. This treaty established boundary lines between lands belonging to the proprietors of PA, that being William Penn heirs and those lands occupied by the Indians of the Six Nations. The land in question was given to William Penn in the 1700's by King Charles II of England as payment for a debt to Penn's father. After the death of William Penn his son, John Penn, then Lieutenant Governor of PA, decided to have his share of the inheritance surveyed. In pursuit of the matter, John Penn communicated by letter in the fall of 1769 through Sir William Johnson, a British Indian Agent, with the Cayuga Indians, a Northeast tribe dwelling in the land to be surveyed. Due to disputes over surveying procedures, it wasn't until the fall of 1773 that the issues were settled and two representatives for the Penn estate traveled in a birch bark canoe up the West Branch of the Susquehanna River to meet with the Indians at a place known as "Canoe Place," where negotiations were begun for surveying the purchase. Following streams, ridges, and the land-marks familiar to the Indians, the party paced out a boundary, later known as the "Purchase Line," stretching from Cherry Tree to Kittanning and the Allegheny River. During the walking purchase, the party came to a location approximately seven miles from "Canoe Place" where the little settlement of Purchase Line began. Thus, the high school was erected by this village near Penn's boundary line, giving the school and newly formed district its name .
