Penn Manor school district honored 11 retirees, with a combined 245 years of service, Tuesday night during the 36th annual Employee Recognition Dinner in the high school cafeteria. Conestoga’s own Learning Support Teacher, Maria Hayes, is one of the retirees.

Attendees watched a video presentation of comments by the retirees, each of whom will be remembered with a brick in the courtyard outside the Penn Manor High School auditorium. You can see the video by going to the main Penn Manor website.

Also honored Tuesday were 115 Penn Manor employees with 20 or more years of service and the Outstanding Employees and Teachers of the Year.

Shawn Beard, enterprise systems engineer, was honored as the Outstanding Elementary Employee of the Year, and Dottie Bleacher, Marticville Middle School secretary, was named Outstanding Secondary Employee of the Year.

Honored as Outstanding Educators were Amy Wiggins, Central Manor fourth-grade teacher, and Melissa McMichael, high school special-education teacher.

Congratulations to all, and best wishes, retirees. You will be missed!

Conestoga Future Renovation News

The district is excited to announce that at the April 7th school board meeting, several potential renovation plans for Conestoga Elementary were presented and discussed.  The school board informally chose an option that includes a separate art and music room and also an expanded media center.  This plan has an academic common area, which could be used for combined grade level activities.

The current student capacity of 350 would remain the same.  The renovation purposed will be an unoccupied renovation because of the difficulties in renovating an occupied building.  The district is in the very early stages of this process and we will post information as it becomes available.
