Please let Mrs. Young know by April 30th if you are able to volunteer. She can be reached at 872-9535, ext. 3530 (leave a message) or via email at kathy.young@pennmanor.net


“RODEO” deadline extended!

The Cruising for Conestoga “RODEO” address label deadline has been extended.  You still have time to support our school and our only fundraiser of the year.  Please fill out your address labels and return them to school by April 30th. 

Thank you so much for those that already turned in their labels!  The PTO could not fund field trips, assemblies, playground equipment, new technology, etc. without your help!

These “additional” labels will not qualify for the raffles, BUT they will be counted toward the class participation prizes!

The class with the most participation will get lunch in the Conestoga Cafe (a fun filled day of lunch in the library with a special treat) and also be the first class to use the new GAGA pit on the playground!

All classes to hit 80% participation will get to enjoy a refreshing treat!

District Statement Regarding Arrest

Penn Manor School District commends police for their swift action in Wednesday’s arrest of a man suspected of luring students into his car at a bus stop used by Conestoga Elementary School students.

Southern Regional police charged the man with three counts of luring a child into a motor vehicle after he allegedly lured three students into his car at a bus stop in the 5800 block of River Road.

Police said nothing illegal occurred in the car, and the children were not injured. The man allegedly told the students their parents had given him permission to have them wait with him in his car at the bus stop.

With assistance from the school district, police had been monitoring the bus stop daily since a neighbor reported one of the incidents to police. After his arrest, the suspect was committed to Lancaster County Prison.

Penn Manor encourages residents to be vigilant at bus stops and to report any suspicious activity to police and to the school district.
