Have you explored Twitter yet? It’s a great way to get bits of information about Eshleman Elementary and Penn Manor School District. Just last week our crossing guard, Charlee, got a shout out by WGAL’s Katelyn Smith.
Give Twitter a try. Check us out at https://twitter.com/EshPrincipal

Eshleman PTO is sponsoring a Family Movie Night on Friday, February 20, 2015 from 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM in the Eshleman gym. Children are encouraged to wear school-appropriate pajamas and to bring pillows and sleeping bags. Instead of charging admission, families are asked to bring in an item for PM Cares, a group that supplies toiletries and non-food essentials to Penn Manor students and their families in need. Items such as toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, tissues, baggies, dish soap, hand soap, glass cleaner, toothpaste, deodorant and shampoo are welcome. Movie of the evening will be “Mr. Peabody and Sherman”.
This is NOT a drop-off event. Students must be accompanied by an adult.
Because of the threat of record cold and high winds Friday, parents are reminded to make sure their children are wearing warm coats, hats and gloves as they head for school tomorrow.
The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Chill Advisory until 10 a.m. Friday. Temperatures are expected to dip below zero, with wind chills as low as 10 to 25 degrees below zero. In such conditions, frostbite can occur in as little as 30 minutes on exposed skin.
The conditions could possibly result in a delay in the start of school Friday. Please check the Penn Manor cell phone app, website and Twitter page, as well as local media outlets regarding a possible delay. You may also dial the district’s weather hotline, at 872-9500 ext. 2333.
Please be safe outdoors.
