Dear Penn Manor Families,
To better prepare our elementary students for the increased state expectations and to specifically meet the changes brought about by the adoption of the Pennsylvania Core Standards, we have shifted to the use of new math materials that align with these necessary changes. These new McGraw Hill “My Math” materials are an extension of the McGraw Hill “Math Connects” materials we used from kindergarten through grade five and the Glenco, Course One materials we used in grade six for the past five years. These new, carefully aligned materials will expose our students to the increased need for the application of the concepts taught and better prepare our students for the future.

We are fortunate to have been able to provide our teachers and students with the resources needed to stay current. Please note: There will also be an on-line component available to parents/guardians starting with October 1st that will include tutorials, re-teaching guides and practice materials to help you assist your child at home as needed.

Should your child be experiencing particular difficulty, please make sure you communicate this to your child’s classroom teacher so that re-teaching guides can be sent home until our on-line option is available to you or should you not have internet access at home.

We appreciate your continued support at home. Please contact Dr. Egan should you have any questions.

Jerry Egan
Hambright Elementary

Our district is offering the program “Drugs 101:What Parents Need to Know”. This is an educational and informative presentation for parents with students of all ages. There will be a mock bedroom that has been set up to resemble a teenage drug user’s room. Parents are asked to identify drug and alcohol paraphernalia items that are placed within the room. Throughout the program “live” role playing demonstrations will occur to help parents initiate conversations with their child about peer pressure.

When: October 1st, 2014
Where: High School Auditorium.
Time: 6:30-6:45pm-Pre-Registration/Viewing of Bedroom

This is a free event, but is for adults only. All parents are invited!
*Registration is required: Sharlotte Dammerman 872-9520 x1809
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Kim Marsh at ext 1817
