SHS and WSHS Students Visit Superintendent During Bell Week

Bell Week is coming to a head tonight at 7 p.m. at Valor Field at Veterans Memorial Stadium! This year's tough and gritty Invaders look to take down the high powered Knights, which have won the last four matches.

The Battle for the Bell began officially in 1954, but the rivalry game dates back to the first city championship game of 1909.

Good luck to all of our kids tonight!

The SSD "Goes Pink" for the Komen Foundation

The Scranton School District is proud to participate in the "Community Goes Pink Challenge" in support of the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Good luck to all of this weekend's Race for the Cure runners! #Communitygoespink
