Our April PTO meeting has been changed to Monday, April 13, 2015 from 6:30-7:30. We have many exciting spring events to plan and finalize (Grandparent Bingo, Ice Cream Social, End of the Year Picnic, 6th grade party, etc…). We hope you can make it. A Sheetz gift card will be raffled off to one lucky attendant.
PTO is looking for additional volunteers for Grandparent Bingo. This event will be held on Friday, April 24, 2015 from 6-7:15 PM. Doors open at 5:30. If you are able to assist, please click on the link below for more information.
Thanks to the efforts of Jason Binkley and the entire elementary physical education staff, we will be offering a joint, Sixth Grade Track and Field event for all of our sixth grade students. This event will take place at the Penn Manor High School on May 26th (rain date, May 29th). Students will be bused to this event from their home school shortly after 9:00 AM. They will be bused back to their home school by 3:00 PM. This event has been well planned and further details, including the event schedule, will be shared with you by mid April. Teachers will be assisting with monitoring their classes throughout the day and we are seeking parent volunteers for additional support.
We look forward to this new event!
The 2015 Science Expo is in the books. We had a great time and a great show of support from students across all grade levels. We saw volcanoes, lemon batteries, popcorn experiments, and the list goes on! We want to thank all the parents who supported our CM young scientists during these last several days as they worked on their science expo projects. Another big thank you to all the Central Manor staff who volunteered their time to come out as interviewers!
In the near future, the YWCA will begin registering students for their summer camp being held at Eshleman Elementary School. The YWCA will be at Central Manor on Wednesday, April 15, 2015 from 4-6 PM in the gym. If you are unable to attend the registration night, you may call into the YWCA in Lancaster to make an appointment.
The Junior League of Lancaster has created the attached video to help parents with ideas for the best strategies to use when reading with their preschool aged children. Take a look and please help us to ensure that every child is exposed to great books prior to registering for kindergarten. Please consider passing this video along to any family member or friend who may have a child nearing kindergarten regardless of school district!
