Penn Manor MATH UPDATE For Parents

Dear Penn Manor Families:

MATH UPDATE

To better prepare our elementary students for the increased state expectations and to specifically meet the changes brought about by the adoption of the Pennsylvania Core Standards, we have shifted to the use of new math materials that align with these necessary changes. These new McGraw Hill “My Math” materials are an extension of the McGraw Hill “Math Connects” materials we used from kindergarten through grade five and the Glenco, Course One materials we used in grade six for the past five years. These new, carefully aligned materials will expose our students to the increased need for the application of the concepts taught and better prepare our students for the future.

We are fortunate to have been able to provide our teachers and students with the resources needed to stay current. Please note: There will also be an on-line component available to parents/guardians starting October 1st that will include tutorials, re-teaching guides and practice materials to help you assist your child at home as needed.

Should your child be experiencing particular difficulty, please make sure you communicate this to your child’s classroom teacher so that re-teaching guides can be sent home until our on-line option is available to you or should you not have internet access at home.

We appreciate your continued support at home. Please contact your child’s principal should you have any questions.

Happy Constitution Day!

Central Manor classrooms were challenged by Mr. Malek this morning to find the FIVE FREEDOMS that are protected under the 1st Amendment to the Constitution.  September 17th is CONSTITUTION DAY!  The students learned on the morning announcements that the Constitution is like our country’s “rule book.”  Just like every sport has a rule book, our government needs a rule book to follow as well.  Many classes participated.  One lucky class that participated and correctly answered the question will win an “Uncle Sam Patriot Party!”  Here’s two examples of the great efforts that were shown today in CM classrooms:

Have You Downloaded the New PM App Yet?

As many of you know, public schools have undergone tremendous budget tightening these past several years.  School calendars cost the district traditionally between $5,000-$6,000 a year for all families and the entire PM community.  The district was informed that this year the supplier would no longer be able to print the calendar.  An equivalent calendar would have cost the district $25,000 for this school year.  Looking forward, the district recently released the PENN MANOR FREE MOBILE APP.  We hope this new app will help keep you updated with all district news and events.  Please share with all family members who have access to download!  Please click below to get more information.

Ice Bucket READING Challenge….Brrrrrrr!

A special challenge was sent to CM students two weeks before school started.  Could at least 100 students read at least 100 minutes?  If so, Mr. Malek promised to take the ice bucket challenge!  The papers flooded the office on the first day of school.  Many students read WELL OVER 100 minutes during the last two weeks of school.  It was official – a “deal was a deal.”  Mr. Malek experienced an icy fate at 3:00 PM on the first day of school.  Enjoy the pictures.  The link below will take you to TEACHER TUBE to enjoy the chilly experience caught on video!
