Big Hero 6 draws a crowd

An appreciative thank you goes out to Jackie Urban and her movie helpers who planned a fun family night for everyone.   Kids were all smiles for this amazing Disney movie.    Thank you to all of our families who donated items and all of our happy helpers who stayed to return the auditorium back to a cafe.  All children got a prize from a lollipop to a stuffed Baymax.    It was a great night.

4th grade math bowl participants

We are so proud of our 4th grade math participants.   The math bowl is always a tough competition and our girls were incredible.  They had a great day and were all smiles when I captured their picture after the competition.

Your input is valued by the superintendent and school board.

Message from Dr. Leichliter…

Penn Manor parents and community members are once again being asked for input on my performance so that the school board and I may assess my strengths and needs to improve my performance in future years.

The online survey is available at the link below via the Survey Monkey tool, which is easy to use and includes an open-response area where community members may share their opinions directly the Penn Manor School Board and me. All nine board members will review the comments and summary scores.

Even those who do not feel they have had enough interaction with me to fully evaluate my performance are urged to take this opportunity to share their overall impressions of Penn Manor School District.

Surveys should be completed no later than February 19.

The survey form is available at:
