Thank you for your interest in the Cocalico School District! It is a place that is teeming with life and learning, a place where students at all grade levels are blossoming into a new generation of leaders, and a place where new life is evident at every turn.

As you tour the pages of this website you will note curriculum initiatives in core programs such as Science, Math, English, and Social Studies, and elective programs such as Technology Education, Family and Consumer Science, Music, Art, Physical Education. You will find information about additional programs that are tailored to the needs of various learners: gifted students who require enrichment and acceleration, students needing support in reading and math, and students who need special education that is individualized according to their specific needs. You will also notice the many extra-curricular activities that include academic competitions, music opportunities, and athletic endeavors. In addition, you will note that we provide bussing services and breakfast and lunch programs, and we have a variety of counseling and social/emotional supports available for our students. In short, our programs and services show how we live our mission to inspire and support learning for every child, every chance, every day.

If you have a special interest in any of the programs listed above, please feel free to attend events, volunteer to help with activities, or contribute other resources that can enhance our programs. Our vision is to empower all students to achieve their fullest potential, and your involvement will certainly help to cultivate academic growth and social and emotional maturity in our students. In turn, they, too, will become a source of life and strength to future generations.

Thank you again for your interest in Cocalico School District. May your journey through the website spark your involvement and support of the learning that occurs in our classrooms and beyond.

Warmest regards,


Ella H. Musser, Ed. D.
