Important Reminders

reminderSchool is in session this Thursday, April 2nd, and next Monday, April 6th.  Both days are full days.  There will be no school on Friday, April 3rd.  

 PSSA PSSA Testing  is approaching quickly.                                                          The schedule for testing is as follows:
    Monday, April 13- Thursday, April 16: Grades 3-6 English/Language Arts
    Tuesday, April 21 – Thursday, April 23: Grades 3-6 Math
    Tuesday, April 28 & Wednesday, April 29: Grade 4 Science

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.


Lost and Found Items

imagesThere are many items in the Lost and Found, including several beachwinter clothing 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.

Many Thanks

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!

Science EXPO Fun

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!

PTO Grocery Gift Cards

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!!!
