Attention graduates of Paxtonia Elementary; Do you remember Mrs. Merryman and her Veggie Friends?  Is there a prize from the prize box that is collecting dust in a corner of your closet?  Is there a classroom lesson about being a good friend that sticks with you to this day?  Mrs. Merryman, the counselor at Paxtonia Elementary School, is retiring after 20 years of touching hundreds of lives.  My name is Melanie Miller and I am Mrs. Merryman’s daughter. My brother, sister, and I are working to form a book of memories for our Mom from the many lives that she has touched in her years of counseling.  If you are a Paxtonia alumni, we would love to have a handwritten note (or email) about a memory from your days at Paxtonia or a lesson that Mrs. Merryman taught that has stayed with you over the years.  Please mail your letters to the Alumni Association by December 01, 2017 to CDHSAA, 910 Wenrich St Harrisburg, PA 17112 , or email them to: .  We are looking forward to hearing from you and are so excited to share your memories with Mrs. Merryman!  
Thank you!
Grey, Kelsey, and Melanie Merryman

Attention former students of CDHS teacher Vickie Smith

If you made a “Time Capsule” in your class with Mrs. Smith, the CDHSAA might have it.  Some of the items were taken home by Mrs. Smith when she moved to West Virginia, but many were left behind at the high school.  The Alumni Assn. has 7 cartons of packets in our storage facility and we’d love to return them to you.  Please call 717-541-0220 or email us at for more info.
