Buddy Bench


Our LeTort Buddy Bench is outside on the playground.  If a child is upset, lonely, or does not have someone to play with, he/she would come to the buddy bench to find a friend.  We have some students who often need support/guidance during recess and this bench is there to help!  When a student comes and sits on the buddy bench, other children will come to the rescue!  REMEMBER, WE ARE HERE TO HELP ONE ANOTHER!

Congratulations to Rachel Sensenich, in Mrs. Winter’s 2nd grade class, for winning the contest to advertise the Buddy Bench.  Above is a photo of her design.  WAY TO GO, RACHEL!

Upcoming Days Off


Please remember that this is NO SCHOOL on Monday, October 13th due to the Columbus Day holiday.

Also, there will be NO SCHOOL on Friday, October 24th due to a teacher in-service day.  Enjoy these two long weekends!

A Fond Farewell and Friendly Hello

It is with great sadness that I announce that Mrs. Megan Hawley, school librarian, will be leaving Penn Manor to teach in a district that is closer to her home.  Mrs. Hawley has made a lasting impression on the students and staff at Letort and she will definitely be missed but we certainly wish her well in this new endeavor!

After weeks of interviewing, we have found the “right fit to fill Mrs. Hawley’s shoes.”  Mrs. Lori Paules will be joining the Letort staff as our new school librarian.  She will be spending some time with Mrs. Hawley visiting all of the school and introducing herself to the staff and students.  Please help me in welcoming her to the Letort community!

Logging in to your child’s math book

Are you aware that you have access to your child’s math book online?   There is an easy way to log on.  To ease this process, we are sharing this “how to log on” video with you.

The big tip is once you are logged on… simply click on the picture of the text book.  It is that easy.  It is specifically designed for the Martic blog but you can access the text book on the on-line math tab listed across the top of the Letort blog.

Click on the math book below to watch the video.
