Summer Update!

Happy Summer Central Manor!

We hope your family is having a happy, healthy and relaxing summer.  Currently, Central Manor is getting a tremendous cleaning from top to bottom by our fantastic maintenance staff.  I want to remind you of two more special mornings when you may visit us:

Tuesday, July 29 and Tuesday, August 5th from 9:00-11:00 – The CM Summer Library is open for your child to sign out books.  Also, the Central Manor Garden is open with fun gardening and literacy activities for all ages.  Please stop by and say hello.  It’s very informal and you may come and go as you please.

Please remind your child to do three things for me during these last few weeks of vacation…..READ, READ, READ!

See you soon,

Mr. Malek

Farewell Mrs. Holt!

Central Manor Elementary School gave Mrs. Holt a wonderful last day, as several students shared a poem about Mrs. Holt, and the school sang a song to her at Shine Time.  After school, the Central Manor staff presented Mrs. Holt with a special stone bench that will be a permanent fixture right outside the main entrance.  Beside the bench is a special dedication for Mrs. Holt.  We would like to thank the Groff Family and Funk Family for their help with the bench.  Be sure to read her farewell message to the CM Community the next time you drive past Central Manor.  We will miss you Mrs. Holt!

2-K Gets Special End of Year Visitor

Students in Mrs. Kyle’s second grade class were recently visited by Penn Manor Junior, Karley Hill.  Karley and her service dog Kizer enjoyed answering questions and also demonstrated how a service dog can help someone with different tasks. Kizer was eager to greet the students after his “working harness was removed.”

Girls on the Run & Stride – Looking Ahead to Fall 2014

Girls on the Run!

Put your superhero powers to the test this fall and become a Girls on the Run coach! Central Manor would like to offer a Girls on the Run team (grades 3-4) and a Girls on Track team (grades 5-6) in the fall, but we need your help!  We currently have a head coach for the grade 3-4 team, but we need a head coach for the grade 5-6 team and assistant coaches too.  No running experience is necessary.   All training is provided, it guarantees your daughter a spot on the team, and you will have a blast!  If you are interested or have any questions, please contact Laura Stephan at  Applications to host the teams at Central Manor are due by the end of the school year.





















Last Fall, Central Manor had its first ever STRIDE team that consisted of boys in grades 3-5.  STRIDE is run through the Lancaster Family YMCA.  It would be great to bring back a STRIDE team for the Fall of 2014.  The boys on the STRIDE team end their season with a 5K at the Girls on the Run 5K event.  Parents, if you are interested in volunteering your time for our incoming grade 3-5 boys for the 2014-2015 school year, please contact Mr. Brian Malek.





Lost and Found LINEUP!

“Hey, I know that sweatshirt!”  “Is that the Steelers jacket that I bought you last year?”  CM Parents, we give you the…..LOST & FOUND LINEUP!  Please help us reduce this giant pile.  All unclaimed items at the end of the year will be donated to “Penn Manor Cares” and other local charities.
