Grades 4-6: TI – 30X IIS Texas Instruments Calculator

CalculatorThe Penn Manor School District provides a TI – 30X IIS Texas Instruments calculator for students in grades 4 through 6. However, the teachers recommend that students purchase their own scientific calculator that will be used in grades 4 through 6. In seventh grade, all Marticville Middle School students are required to purchase their own scientific TI – 30X IIS Texas Instruments calculator. Just think, the earlier you buy your student their own scientific calculator, the more use for the money!

The calculator you purchase MUST be a TI – 30X IIS Texas Instruments calculator so all the students are learning the same functions (see image). The calculator can be found for about $15.00 and in multiple colors at K-Mart, Target, Wal-Mart, Radio Shack, Office Max, Staples, and other office supply stores.

Please use a permanent marker to write your child’s name on the calculator AND the protective cover.

PTO Summer Label Collection

Pequea Families,

This is a friendly reminder to keep collecting labels this summer to benefit our students. The students received an orange envelope from the PTO at the end-of-the-year. Students should return the envelopes with their label collection by September 5 for the chance to win four movie tickets! The class with the most points will win a special reward from the PTO.  Solicit your family and friends to help as well!
