Principal's Message


Dear Friends and Families:


This fall, we will begin to celebrate our 60th anniversary as an elementary school.  We will honor the achievements and contributions of our students who have walked the hallways of our little mountain school.  And we will recognize how our school has grown and how Donegal Elementary School has served Donegal Borough and Donegal Township.


But there is another attribute to celebrate- a constant throughout Donegal Elementary’s history.  Our elementary school proudly proclaims its citizen’s original vision of educating all students in an inclusive and caring setting.  


In the midst of the post war era, our school, funded by the residents of Donegal Borough and Donegal Township, symbolizes the power of a high quality grade school education to change lives and reminds us of our proud past and our bright future.  


Many factors have led to our school building’s success since 1958.  Bright and inquisitive students. Talented and caring teachers. Dedicated staff.  Loyal former students. A proud, hard-working community.


Our school’s legacy reminds us of our obligation to support our children and neighbors.  It includes sharing our expertise to improve the quality of life for our students, inviting the Mount Pleasant Area community to our school for special events, and making our community a part of our creative and hands-on learning programs.  


Once again, we are very excited about this school year and for the opportunity to educate your child.  We look forward to continuing our partnership with you and your child to achieve the highest degree of excellence in their education.


John P. Campbell
