All sizes from infant to adult will be accepted. Donations must be new and are due by Friday, December 21. Thank you for helping to keep Penn Manor families warm this winter!  

While you are Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, or Cyber Monday shopping, please keep this in mind.  🙂

Reminders for the Upcoming Week

We have had lots of fun so far this week!  We have pet a piglet and seen some adorable chicks.  We have waved and applauded for our veterans.  And it’s only Tuesday!

Tomorrow is picture retake day.  If your child was not here on picture day or you would like to have their picture retaken, he/she will have a picture taken tomorrow.  If you are planning to have your child’s picture retaken, please send the original picture packet back to school.  It wouldn’t hurt to send me an email letting me know.

Looking at the forecast for Thursday, please be sure to have a plan if your child is dismissed early from school.  (Yes, I KNOW!  Look at the forecast!!)  Share this plan with your child so that he/she knows.

Friday we have an assembly in the afternoon.  We also have a spirit day:  Twin Day.  Students are encouraged to dress like another student for the day.  I made the suggestion that if students can’t find a twin, they should wear jeans and their leader t-shirt.  There will be a lot of kiddos dressed this way.

On Wednesday of next week, students have an early dismissal.  There is no school Thursday, Friday, or Monday for Thanksgiving.

Have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving break!  I am so thankful every day to spend time with your child.

Scholastic Books

Books always make a great gift!  With the holidays coming up, if you are planning on buying your child any books, please consider buying them from Scholastic.  When you do, our classroom gets free books as well.  If you would like me to keep these books a surprise, let me know.  I can leave them in the office for you to pick up at your convenience.  Please keep in mind these books take about two weeks to arrive.  There are often GREAT books for $1.  (One of the $1 books for this month is one of my favorites:  Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.)

Here’s how to order:

Go to:

Our class code is:  HLYCF

If you do order, it might not hurt to send me an email.  I have to confirm the order for it to go through and Scholastic does not contact me to let me know someone placed an order.

Happy Reading!

Gray Fleece

A gray fleece zip-up sweatshirt was found in our classroom.  We were all sitting in one area reading a story, and when we got up, it was left behind.  No student claimed it when I held it up.  If your child is missing a gray fleece zip-up sweatshirt, have him/her talk to me.  I will take it to the lost and found next week.

Have a great weekend!
