District Requirements for Volunteer Clearances

Anyone wishing to volunteer during school hours or during field trips are required to obtain clearances.  Please clink on the links below to obtain these clearances:

(*Please note ~ clearances are not paid for by the school district).

When you receive ALL the necessary clearances and complete the volunteer application, you may submit copies to the Eshleman office beginning August 10, 2015.

Clearances will remain valid with the district as long as you volunteer at least once per school year, for up to three years.  All clearances MUST BE RENEWED every three years to continue as a volunteer in the district.  The date for renewal is determined by the date of your “oldest” clearance or the one you received “first.”  For example, if your clearances were dated October 5 and November 23, those clearances would need renewed by October 5.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the office.

Summer Reading

Did you hear?  If students use their pink reading calendar during the summer and bring it back to school next year…they get to see Dr. Cox kiss a pig!  Follow Eshleman students as they read throughout the summer at http://blogs.pennmanor.net/summerreading/

We added the first photo this weekend!  Students are excited to read!  Subscribe to Eshleman’s Once upon a Blog and see new posts showing all the places our Eshleman students are reading.  Send your child’s picture to Mrs. Tran or Mrs. Braun to post on the blog.  See Once upon a Blog site for details.

If your child ordered a yearbook, it will be coming home today!  If not, there are a few extra copies available for $15 in the office.

The PTO  has determined that the SPLASH Party will be moved to the Eshleman gym tonight for those who pre-registered.  Feel free to bring your beach towel and enjoy pizza in the gym.  There will be no activities tonight except for the food.  The PTO will work with the Millersville Pool to determine another night this week for swimming but there will be no food at that event.  Watch for a blog posting regarding the pool date.

Flip-Flop Friday

Friday, May 29, 2015 has been designated as Flip-Flop Friday to celebrate the fantastic job Eshleman students and parents did by raising money through BoxTops for Education. Students are encouraged to wear Hawaiian shirts, flip-flops, and other school-appropriate beach-type attire (no bathing suits).  Remember — if you have PE class on Friday, also bring sneakers.  Way to go, Eshleman!

Don’t forget to keep clipping BoxTops over the summer!
