The PTO would like to say THANK YOU to everyone who clipped box tops, labels and purchased grocery gift cards for the contest. We raised over $1,146.00 in box tops and gift card profit, plus over 7,888 points for Labels for Education. Congratulations to our winning classes: Mrs. Mitchell, Mrs. Johnson and Mrs. Binkley!

Students will be testing every morning beginning at 9:15. We encourage all students to arrive on time. Any students in those grades who arrive late will need to sit in the office until testing is over. Also, we ask that parents not make appointments during the mornings of the testing.
PARENTS: Please make sure your child leaves all electronic devices at home on testing days.
To get in the spirit of testing, we are having a “We’re So Bright” school spirit day. Students who wish to participate should wear brightly colored clothing.
March’s PTO meeting minutes have been added to the PTO page. Please make sure you check them out!
There are many items in the Lost and Found, including several beach towels that were left here from Beach Day, jackets, hats, gloves, shirts, and athletic pants. These items are on a table inside the front lobby of the school. Jewelry and other small items are in the office.
If your child has been missing anything, please take a minute to stop by and see if it is there. Any items not claimed before Easter vacation will be donated to a local charity.
Don’t forget that for every $100 purchased in grocery gift cards to John Herrs or Weis =100 box tops towards classroom totals. The same goes for any Sheetz coupon books ($10) = 25 points in Labels for your classroom. The top 3 classes will win an ice cream treat for each student and new sports balls (basketballs, footballs, soccer & volleyballs) for their classroom.
Both the PTO and I would like to extend a sincere thank you to all the families who donated items at the PTO rollerskating party last Monday night. I received an email from PM Cares that we filled an entire van ~ front to back and to the ceiling ~ with items for Penn Manor’s needy families. They were able to fill all the needed items for five different families on Sunday evening for delivery today.
It is wonderful to see our Letort families pull together to make a difference in our Penn Manor community! Many, many thanks to all who contributed!
Thank you to all the students (and parents) who participated in the Annual Letort Science EXPO. There were many fabulous science projects that were shared yesterday afternoon and evening. Mrs. Moyer and I are so proud of all the hard work and dedication that ALL the students exhibited during the scientific process. And hoping they learned some important lessons and content too. WAY TO GO!
We’re so sorry for the inconvenience! At this time, we are reevaluating the Grocery Gift Card passive fundraiser. For the time being, we will NO longer offer Stauffer’s or Weis Markets grocery gift cards; we are contemplating continuing with Giant and Darrenkamps. We are definitely still offering John Herr’s.
Thank you for your understanding in this matter. Please feel free to contact us through email, phone or letter to the school (labeled PTO Grocery Gift Card opinion)…we value and appreciate any and all feedback. ;0)
Thank you for your continuing support in helping to make our LeTort school better and better with each passing day!!!
Thanks to the efforts of Jason Binkley and the entire elementary physical education staff, we will be offering a joint, Sixth Grade Track and Field event for all of our sixth grade students. This event will take place at the Penn Manor High School on May 26th (rain date, May 29th).
Students will be bussed to this event from their home school shortly after 9:00am. They will be bussed back to their home school by 3:00pm.
This event has been well planned and further details, including the event schedule, will be shared with you by mid April.
Teachers will be assisting with monitoring their classes throughout the day and we are seeking parent volunteers for additional support.
We look forward to this new event! More information to follow!
