Welcome to the PASD Parent Resources Page!
 
The Punxsutawney Area School District is committed to preparing students for the future by enabling them to acquire knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to become productive and responsible citizens.  This page is designed to provide parents and guardians with resources that they can access with their students at home to continue that vision.  Please check back often as we continue building links to valuable resources throughout the school year!      
 
 
 
 
The following list contains links to sites with interactive, online activities that have been recommended by our District Technology Coach, Mrs. Fedigan.  Many of the sites below were borrowed from a list created by David Kapuler--an author and educational consultant who posted them in his "Top 10 Sites for Educational Games" on the website Tech & Learning.  Students and parents can visit these websites to find a variety of valuable practice activities to help learners hone their skills in a variety of content areas.
