The Outstanding Student Award is presented to students across Pennsylvania in recognition of their embodiment in the trade. Students who carry a minimum GPA, are members of a student chapter of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), and are from schools enrolled in the Endorsed Trade Program, are eligible. The award is sponsored by the PBA and local builders associations including the Home Builders Association of Northeastern PA.
Brian, son of Brian and Lisa Kozloski of Union Dale, said he was very surprised and excited when he found out about the award. After graduation he has plans on pursuing a carpenter's apprenticeship. "I chose the most deserving student for this award," said Castelli. "Brian will be an asset to the trades."
Adam, son of Thomas and Kathy Roe of Hallstead, said, "It was an honor to receive this award. I am thankful to have a great instructor like Mr. Reinhart." Adam will continue his education at Penn Tech for Construction Management. Reinhart noted that Adam is "an excellent student with a great work ethic and integrity."
The Endorsed Trade Program was developed by the PBA, in collaboration with educators, local builders associations and others to provide technical school graduates with more credibility in the job market – as well as provide builders with a highly skilled workforce.

Susquehanna Community High School will be hosting its 14th Annual Mocha Moose Café on May 21, 2019, from 5:30 - 8:30pm in the high school gym. All are invited to join the students as they show off their talents and accomplishments. Tickets are available at the door, $3 for adults and $2 for students.
14 years ago the Mocha Moose Café started when the Parent Involvement Committee (PIC) wanted to showcase the talented students of SCHS with an evening program featuring a wide variety of acts that included a few teachers as well. The program had its beginnings in the main cafeteria with a quaint coffee house style setting of dim lights and a small stage for acts. The night of entertainment was so well received that after two short years it was moved to the gym to accommodate the crowd.
This year the SCSD Archery Club and Saber Studio Art Club will be hosting the event. The night will include finger food, desserts and drinks, basket raffle, great musical, dance and dramatic performances.
