We would like to welcome you and your child to Hershey Elementary - home of the Panthers! We are very proud of our school. Our dedicated teachers and support staff have worked together with Hershey parents to create a loving environment with a reputation of academic excellence. We know each student is an individual, bringing unique talents and needs to school every day.  We pride ourselves on the opportunities that we have available to help each and every student child succeed. We strive to meet every students' individual needs and prepare them for a lifetime of learning.

At Hershey we believe that families and community members play a critical role as partners in supporting both your students at home and work in the schools. There are many opportunities and special events throughout the school year to get involved at Hershey Elementary! Our PTO hosts events, such as Movie Nights, as well as the Panther PAWlooza, Reading Days, and many restaurant nights throughout the community. If you are interested in joining our PTO please contact hersheypto@gmail.com.

We recognize the importance of helping our students discover their passions and interests and provide students with many opportunities to be involved in extracurricular activities at Hershey Elementary! We offer Student Council, Newspaper Club, Chess Club, AV Club, and Art Club at different times throughout the school year for various age groups. 

Since 2018, we have been working to implement practices of Conscious Discipline which emphasizes building connections and utilizing restorative strategies to help our students build brain-aligned strategies that all students can utilize to have a successful experience at school.  To learn more about brain-aligned strategies please check out TSC’s Wellness Framework
