BMX Reminder

LeTort BMX Show

Great News! Our Great American Fundraiser was SO successful that we have been able to open the show up to all LeTort students and their families!

Come join us on Monday, October 27 @ 2:15 PM at LeTort Elementary School.

No students will be allowed to leave this event with parents. Please keep the confusion down by allowing students to be dismissed as usual.

Thank you SO much for all your efforts in making this fundraiser such a success. It will greatly benefit our students and our school.

Friendly’s Fundraiser Night

Anyone thirsty for a FRIBBLE????  Join Us Monday October 27th, 2014 at the Centerville Road location.  We are holding our annual “Friendly’s FUNdraiser Night”.  There’s ONLY one thing better then a Friendly’s meal and that is a Friendly’s meal surrounded by the friendly faces of your fellow LeTort friends!

From 5-8PM LeTort PTO will earn 10% of the gross sales of every customer-  Tell your family, friends & neighbors to join us for a fun-tastic night!  No need to RSVP just show up!!!!

BMX Fundraising Show


First of all, the PTO and I would like to extend our sincerest thanks to everyone who made our fundraiser such an overwhelming success!  The total raised far more than we ever anticipated; so many, many thanks to you all!

As a small token of our appreciation, ALL students will be attending the BMX show on Monday, October 27th.  We are encouraging families to attend as well because without your support, we would not have been so successful.  The show will begin promptly at 2:15 and run approximately 30 minutes in the back parking lot.  We ask that you simply park out front in the front parking lot and walk around to the back of the building.

Since the show is only 30 minutes long and there is 45 minutes of instructional time left in the school day, NO student will be permitted to leave with his/her parent(s) at the conclusion of the event.  All students will be dismissed at the normal school time.  We appreciate your understanding in this matter!

Hope to see you there!

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.
