Dear Sixth Grade Parents/Guardians:
As in years past, Penn Manor will provide a sexual harassment prevention program to sixth grade students. The program is presented in an age-appropriate and non-threatening manner, and the session will include a video entitled, “Flirting or Hurting: When Is It Okay, When Is It Harassment?”. Parents are invited to attend their child’s session of this prevention program or may arrange to preview the materials in advance. Simply call me if you have any questions, (717)872-1401 ext 3203.
Your child’s class is scheduled for 2:15pm on:
October 23rd for students in 6S
October 28th for students in 6K
October 29th for students in 6F
October 31st for students in 6B
Parents/guardians are welcome to attend their child’s session of this program, or may arrange to preview the materials in advance. If you would like to attend, please email/call me at the below contact information.
If you would like your child excused from the program, please notify me in writing no later than Monday, October 21st.
Dr. Shannon Madara

School is right around the corner. It’s not too early to start getting ready. You and your family may be eligible under a federal program for Child Nutrition: https://www.fns.usda.gov/cnp/fr-032019
Research has shown that good nutrition has a positive impact on a child’s ability to focus and learn. It is important that we provide a nurturing environment for each child, so that individual success as a student can be maximized. We would encourage you to review the links below and submit an application. Even kindergarten students can qualify for meals; which is certainly helpful if you plan to send them to breakfast or for the days when they have a chance to eat lunch at school with the older students. Please contact Brian Malek for more details. All information is confidential. Many families are unaware that they qualify for this meal assistance program.

If my adjusted schedule doesn’t work for you and your family, please let me know, and we’ll come up with an alternative time to get together.
I am looking forward to seeing you!
Spelling packets are due tomorrow, Thursday. On Friday, to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day we will be wearing o’ the green, and having a vocab quiz and spelling test. 🙂
The in-service day scheduled for Friday, Jan 12 has been moved to TUESDAY, JAN 16. Monday, Jan. 15 is a holiday. 🙂
This spelling list is, in my opinion, the trickiest of the year. The file below has simple definitions and sentences using the word. Our test is on Monday. Please encourage your student to study!
