November 3 through November 7 Week-At-A-Glance

Pequea Families,

Red Ribbon week was a success and culminates today with a Penn Manor spirit day. It was great seeing the students showing their Pequea Pride this week by participating in the spirit days organized by the PRIDE Team.

The month of November is Native American Heritage month. This collection of resources helps students learn about the rich heritage and legacy of Native Americans. Tuesday is election day and you can use this collection of resources to help your future citizen learn more about the electoral process.  On Tuesday, November 11 we celebrate our nation’s heroes on Veteran’s Day and you can also view this collection of resources for Thanksgiving activities.

Out PTO meeting for the month of November is next Thursday at 6:30 pm in the library. They’re always looking for Pequea parents to help with special events for our students.

School is not in session for elementary students on Friday, November 7 for teacher in-service. Don’t forget to turn back your clocks one hour on Saturday as daylight savings time ends. Enjoy the extra hour of sleep!

Have a great weekend!

The PA Department of education wants your feedback!

Pequea Families,

The information posted below is from the PA Department of Education. Please review the information on their website and consider posting your feedback.

The Pennsylvania Department of Education has developed a website to solicit feedback from the public on the eligible content in English language arts and mathematics in grades three through eight, and Algebra I and Literature at the secondary level.

Screen Shot 2014-10-28 at 5.28.22 AMPennsylvania’s eligible content statements are a straightforward set of what we want students to know and do at each grade level, and serve as the blueprint for the state assessments.

This website was designed to promote public awareness and understanding of the eligible content and obtain feedback from Pennsylvania educators, parents and the general public on the eligible content statements, their purpose, and value.

If after gathering feedback, we conclude that significant changes are needed, we will engage in a revision process via statewide public hearings.

The website is currently populated with eligible content for grade three English language arts and mathematics and is available for public review.

By mid-November, the website will be expanded to encompass the eligible content for grades three through eight and Algebra I and Literature.

Please share this information with educators, parents, community members, and other interested parties and encourage them to visit and review the content.  The feedback we receive will be invaluable as we evaluate and refine our career and postsecondary expectations for our students.
