Chinese New Year

The Chinese New Year was just celebrated.Mrs. Pierce taught her art students that it is the “Year of the Ram.”  Every year there is an animal that is designated to represent anyone born in that particular year. Anyone born in 2015 will have the traits of being kind and creative. Enjoy the hats made by Mrs. Miller’s first grade students in art class.







Math Bowls Are Over

Fourth Place is what we were all about this year, as each grade level Math Bowl team came in 4th place this year. Way to go. Congratulations to all.

Buses Today

Due to the weather, once again we’ve had a disruption with our scheduled times to arrive at the stops. Two of our buses were actually early and left early. However, bus 139 is here but getting a new wiper blade put on, so will be very late getting home.


The PM High School annual Readathon scheduled from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, March 1, in the East Gym has been postponed to Sunday, March 8.

PSSA Testing Calendar & Preplanned Trips

Preschool Lunch & Learn

All preschool children, age 3 to pre-K, along with their parent/guardian, are invited to join us at Conestoga Elementary for a preschool lunch and learn hour on the following dates:

  • Tuesday, March 10, from 11:45 to 12:45
  • Wednesday, April 8, from 11:45 to 12:45
  • Tuesday, May 12, from 11:45 to 12:45

Some of the advantages to having your child attend these sessions are:

  • Exposure to language and learning skills needed for kindergarten
  • Opportunity to meet the kindergarten teacher at Conestoga
  • Become familiar with the school building
  • An easier transition to kindergarten

Lunch is free for your preschooler, and adults may buy lunch or pack one. The March 10th lunch is cheeseburger on a roll, baked French fries, celery & dip, assorted fruit, ice cream & milk.  The April and May lunch menu has not been determined yet.  We will post that closer to the time.

Please contact the school office at 872-9535, ext. 3500, to sign up. images

Spring Picture Day is March 13

On March 13th, all students will have the opportunity to have Spring pictures taken here at school.  Spring portraits support our school. A flyer will soon be coming home with your child.


This year Lifetouch is producing a Spring class picture keepsake that you can order & pay for that day ($12.00). That info is part of the flyer.

No other money is due on picture day. Once pictures are returned, you can decide if you want anything/everything from the package and pay accordingly.
