• The faculty and staff at Muhlenberg Elementary Center (MEC) would like to welcome you to our website. Our school, which opened in 1997, is the only elementary school serving the Muhlenberg School District which consists of the Boroughs of Laureldale and Temple, along with Muhlenberg Township. Ninety-five professional staff members and seventy support staff serve the children attending Muhlenberg Elementary on a daily basis. Our building, which is located at the corner of Kutztown Road and Sharp Avenue in Reading, PA shares a campus setting with the Muhlenberg High School (10 - 12), Muhlenberg Middle School (7-9), and CE Cole Intermediate School (4-6). Nearly 1200 students in grades K-3 attend Muhlenberg Elementary Center.

    We are very proud and honored to be a part of the Muhlenberg School District community. As a united community, we can prepare our students for tomorrow's challenges and opportunities. Muhlenberg Elementary Center is not a great school by accident. Our greatness is a result of members of the school community truly working together for the benefit of children. This combination of cooperation and commitment on the part of families, children, school staff, and community members is very special and should be celebrated. We encourage parents to volunteer in our school and at school events. On-going communication between home and school is very important to ensure a positive connection with all aspects of school life.

    Children are the focus of everything we do at Muhlenberg Elementary Center. We focus on making MEC a safe and joyful place for learning. We encourage all students to attend school on a daily basis. All students should strive to achieve their very best.

    Again, we welcome your involvement in our school and look forward to working with you this year. Please don't hesitate to contact us with your questions. We wish everyone a safe, successful and rewarding school year!

    With best regards,

    Krista Venza, Principal
