Take Out Tuesday

TAKE OUT TUESDAY IS HERE AGAIN! 

What a great week for Take Out Tuesday!  As we all wrestle with getting back into a routine, use tomorrow night to take a break from cooking AND support LeTort!  

This month’s Take Out Tuesday is January 4th at Tropical Smoothie on Comet Drive. 

It runs from 4:00pm to 7:30pm and all purchases must be made in store (but can be taken out/to go). 

There will be a bin at the register for your receipt and a portion of sales from all the receipts go back to LeTort.  Receipts must go in the bin for credit.

School Closing Notification for This Year

As we enter the winter season, we want to remind parents/guardians of the procedures Penn Manor will follow in announcing changes to our school schedule.

School closings and delays will be posted on the district website and Twitter feed and reported on LNP and local radio and television stations before 6 a.m., whenever possible. You can also call the inclement weather hotline at (717) 872-9500, ext. 2333, to check on the status of Penn Manor schools.

When inclement weather conditions develop during the day, resulting in an early closing, parents will be notified via automated phone call. Phone calls will NOT be made for closings/delays announced before the school day begins.

During an early dismissal for inclement weather, high school and middle school students will generally be dismissed first, followed by elementary students. 

During two-hour delays with modified kindergarten, all school-related functions, including transportation, will begin two hours later than normal.

Modified kindergarten schedule: AM Kindergarten will start at 11 a.m. and run until 12:45 p.m. PM Kindergarten will run from 1:45 p.m. until the regular dismissal time.

Penn Manor plans to use built-in snow days prior to using flexible instructional days (also known as “cyber snow days”) when school buildings are closed due to inclement weather. On flexible instructional days, students will receive instruction remotely.

Penn Manor uses the Sapphire phone and text communications service for rapid notifications. The system uses contact information from the Sapphire student information system. To assure you are contacted, please make sure your email address and phone information are updated in your Sapphire Community Portal account. For instructions, please see this guide.

2021 PSSA Results

By now, the Spring 2021 PSSA Assessment Results have been uploaded to each student’s individual Sapphire account.  You should be able to access your child’s report through the parent portal; if you have difficulty, please contact the principal for assistance.  Here is an accompanying letter from PA Secretary of Education, Noe Ortega. 

Message-from-Secretary-of-Education-for-Parent-Letters

The Pennsylvania Department of Education provides schools with reports on individual student performance by Reporting Category and Assessment Anchor. Assessment Anchors represent categories of subject matter (skills and concepts) that anchor the content of the PSSA. For the ELA PSSA, there are four Assessment Anchors that are the same across Grades 3-8: Key Ideas & Details, Craft & Structure, Vocabulary, and Language. Grades 4-8 have one additional Assessment Anchor: Text Dependent Analysis.

For the Math PSSA, the Assessment Anchors differ by grade-band. For Grades 3-5, the Assessment Anchors are: Numbers & Operations in Base Ten, Fractions, Operations & Algebraic Thinking, Geometry, and Measurement & Data. For Grades 6-7, the Assessment Anchors are: The Number System, Ratios & Proportional Relationships, Expressions & Equations, Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. For 8th grade, the Assessment Anchors are: The Number System, Functions, Expressions & Equations, Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. 

For the Science PSSA, the Assessment Anchors are the same for both 4th grade and 8th grade. There are several Assessment Anchors, which can be grouped more neatly into the following Reporting Categories: The Nature of Science, Biological Sciences, Physical Sciences, and Earth & Space Sciences.

Students receive a raw score, a scale score and a performance level rating (Below Basic, Basic, Proficient, or Advanced) that is associated with a specific scale score range. The scale score associated with each performance tier differs by grade-level and subject area. For a deeper breakdown, you can consult the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s Performance Level Descriptors and Cut Scores.
