    Welcome to the Muhlenberg School District

    Dear Muhlenberg School District Community Members:

    We are excited and energized for the 2019-2020 school year.  As seasons change with time, we also as human beings change with time.  One item for certain is our commitment to providing quality services for our children. In April of 2014, after careful research and assimilation of qualitative and quantitative data, we presented a holistic plan, our Blueprint for Success.  This visionary template serves as guidance for creating opportunities for our children.  Since 2014, several components of this plan have emerged resulting in programs and activities for our students. Simply, our Blueprint is our cornerstone and it is galvanizing our school system. You will also find Muhlenberg School District's Action Plan was presented publicly in May of 2017.  This concentric and systemic Action Plan will provide pathways of empowerment and operations for our District enterprise; also, feel encouraged to review my message on the Superintendent's link. 

    Each parent, guardian and, especially your children who are our students, are our most valuable resources.  Our mission is to educationally empower and model humanistic qualities so our children can experience a meaningful and happy life, even with all of life’s obstacles.  

    Please review the Blueprint and concentric Action Plan for continuous improvement. Your contributions towards this journey are certainly welcome.  

    I wish you the very best within the spirit of the Muhlenberg School District.


    Joseph E. Macharola, Ed D.



District Headlines & Features


  • Dear Parents/Guardians of English Language Learners in Grades K-12,

    You may have or will be receiving a letter by mail that is to inform you that the PA Department of Education has mandated that school districts administer the WIDA ACCESS for ELLs assessment IN PERSON with all English learners from starting Tuesday March 9, 2021 through April 15, 2021. This assessment is administered every year to help school districts monitor the English language development of students identified as English language learners. The test measures students’ abilities to understand and produce English used within school settings.

    Please call Ms. Elizabeth Laviena, 610-921-8000 x7303 or email by Monday March 8, 2021 to confirm your child’s testing date. When we return to in-person instruction, your child’s testing date will coincide with a day they are in-person. If you have chosen for your child to remain virtual, the child still needs to take the assessment IN PERSON, per the PA Department of Education. We will have a secure area where your child will be individually tested by an ESL teacher.

    When you call or email, please give your child’s name, parent/guardian name and phone, and how your child will come to school for testing. Only those eligible for bussing will be bussed for testing. If you have opted out of in person instruction and do not want to bring your child in for testing. We will send you a form to sign that confirms we offered your child the test and you have opted them out.

    Thank you,

    Muhlenberg School District Director of ESL,

    Ms. Cathy A. Shappell

Esta evaluación se administra todos los años para ayudar a los distritos escolares a monitorear el desarrollo del idioma inglés de los estudiantes identificados como aprendices del idioma inglés.

Tendremos un área segura donde su hijo/a será evaluado individualmente por un maestro de ESL.

    Cuando llame o envíe un correo electrónico, proporcione el nombre de su hijo/a, el nombre del padre / tutor y el teléfono, y cómo vendrá su hijo/a a la escuela para la prueba.

  • Parents and Guardians,
    As of September 21, 2020, the PIAA has transferred decision making abilities to school districts as it pertains to spectators in attendance at Fall athletic contests. We have measured out our venues in order to determine a safe number of spectators that we can permit that will still allow for us to maintain social distancing and safety measures. We will be providing each team with passes that can be distributed to parents and family to allow for them to attend, along with at least 1 pass for parents of opposing teams. We will NOT be selling tickets for any contests this Fall, and will not be allowing for walk up attendees either. This is to ensure that our parents and guardians will have access to attend their childrens' games. For safety reasons, we feel strongly that at least one parent should have access to attend in the event of injury to their child. We will also communicate to our teams in advance when opposing teams inform us about the number of visiting spectators they will allow at their venues. Please contact the Athletic Office with any questions. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience as we continue to move forward in these unprecedented times.
    Dr. Moyer
    Athletic Director
