Community Activities, Events & ProgramsThe Derry Township School District is a proud member of the Hershey-area community. There are many educational activities and events sponsored by community organizations that take place outside the school day. Parents may find these offerings a fun and engaging extension of the classroom learning experience.Click on any the document links below to open the associated event/activity flyer. These materials are posted as a courtesy to our school families; inclusion of an event listing here does not constitute an endorsement by the district. All inquiries related to individual events offered by community groups should be directed to the sponsoring organization.
Distribution of Materials from Outside Organizations: In order to preserve instructional time and reduce paper consumption, the district discourages sending external event/activity fliers home with students. The district, will review such requests and potentially allow material to be posted online or - in rare instances - to be sent home with students. Requests to distribute information on community events (either online or in printed form) must be directed to the office of the Superintendent of Schools. Requests should be submitted no later than 2 weeks prior to the event. Requests should be limited to events with a clear educational benefit for district students. The district reserves all rights to determine the suitability of events for publication. Advertisement of for-profit business, programs or events will not be approved. In those instances where the district grants permission for the distribution of printed materials, the sponsoring organization is then responsible for the printing of materials, collating the proper number of bundled packaged for each homeroom and delivering them to the respective school offices.
