Job Shadowing at Elm Tree Wellness & Physical Therapy

Franklyn Paul and Matthew Waz-Fullum, Seniors at Wallenpaupack Area High School, participated in a job shadowing experience with Sue Pasquini, Owner of ElmTree Wellness & Physical Therapy in Hawley. Both students received one-on-one guidance regarding the role and training of physical therapists. They were able to interact with patients at the Physical Therapy Center to get a better understanding of the importance of establishing a good rapport with clients to help motivate them in their treatment.


Inaugural Instant Decision Day at Wallenpaupack


On Tuesday, October 2nd, 11 Wallenpaupack Area High School Seniors participated in the inaugural "Instant Decision Day" with Misericordia University. Misericordia is a private Catholic liberal arts college located in Dallas, Pennsylvania. To prepare for the day, students completed Misericordia's application and had transcript release forms signed. Additionally, they practiced possible interview questions so they would be ready to discuss their academic journey and future plans. During their scheduled interview slot, they came down to the High School Guidance Office and met with Joy Mack, Misericordia's Admission Representative. At the end of roughly a 10-minute interview, students were either offered acceptance to the university or made aware of what component of the application process needed completion (such as taking the SAT). Those who were accepted were also apprised of what scholarships they would be eligible for based on grades, SAT scores and extracurricular involvement. Official acceptance materials will be mailed to each student's home in the next week.

Wallenpaupack Area High School Senior Barbara Gonzalez said the experience was "nerve wracking yet exciting." David Kelly enjoyed the atmosphere of the interview because it was in the school he attends - a place he feels very comfortable. Since this was a new experience for the students, interviewing in a place they have called home for the last four years allowed them to feel at ease and more confident. For most of the students, this was their first acceptance into a college. This was also a very appealing feature of the process - having an answer at the end of the process, instead of having to wait for weeks or months. Seth Brown believes "Instant Decision Day will definitely gain popularity as word of mouth gets out and more students are able to participate.". The next one is already being planned.

Please be advised that it is the responsibility of the parents/guardians, in the event of a student accident, to provide for accidental injury expenses either through insurance or cash payment to health care providers.

The School District does not provide insurance coverage for students. If you do not have insurance or the financial ability to cover potential injury expenses, we encourage you to review this Student Accident Insurance document.

If you choose to purchase insurance through this program, please have your child return the completed insurance form with your payment to their school and it will be forwarded to the insurance company to process.

We hope this program can be a valuable service for you and your family.
