We are still here for you!
We were so excited in June when we thought we would be back to somewhat normal and be able to offer more of our classes in person.
With the emergence of the Delta variant, we were recently notified by The School District of Haverford Township that they were no longer allowing outside organizations to use the school buildings this fall. Of course we were disappointed, and we know many of you are as well. But we also know the health and safety of our community is always the priority!
The School District will be re-evaluating the situation and we are hopeful that we will be able to run more-in person classes in the spring. Until then, we have a number of virtual options, along with a variety of in person classes at alternate locations. Due to our limited offerings this semester, we are not able to print and mail our brochures as we are accustomed to do. Please check our website for a digital version of our brochure and registration instructions in the very near future.
We hope you will stay connected and continue to learn and grow with HTAS!
Registration opens August 30!

Suzanne McDonough Betz!
Haverford Township Adult School wishes to extend its gratitude to Suzanne McDonough Betz. Suzanne is retiring after volunteering her time for 43 years as the administrator
and instructor for Social Skills for Developmentally Delayed Adults. Suzanne also spent 38 years on the Haverford Township Adult School Board.
The classes were first offered in the 1978 Haverford Township
Adult School Spring catalog and focused on a new group of adults never before included in the public classes. For the first time, developmentally disabled adults had a class to attend just for them. Called Social Development, the class included all sorts of activities including music, art appreciation, gardening, cooking, exercise, dance, travel, etc. The students were encouraged to speak up and share their ideas on nature, animals, and holidays. The local police visited, and fire companies brought their trucks to discuss fire safety. The class included many ability levels but everyone was included and respected.
The Gertrude Steward Foundation is very proud of the program and delighted to think back on all the lives that have
been touched over the years. Suzanne, HTAS wishes you a
happy retirement, and we thank you for your many years of
