Our goal for Friday is to have a School-Wide Spirit Day! Please wear a sports jersey or team colors.
Our unit 1 Math test is scheduled for Tuesday. We will have a full-chapter review on Monday. Over the weekend, I suggest that your student hops on Google classroom to begin to prepare. The textbook materials are up there, as are practice problems.
To my students and their families:
|Welcome||First off, welcome to 6th grade! I am thrilled to be your teacher and am really looking forward to getting to know you and having a fabulous year together. Classroom B011 is directly across from the art room.|
|Communications||The first thing I would like you to do when you get this letter is to go to blogs.pennmanor.net/bschoelkopf/. When you click on my blog you will see a box on the right-hand side to subscribe by email. It is essential that both students and parents sign up because this is my primary method of communicating important events, etc. with families. While you are there, read “About Me” and leave a post for me. |
|Please see the district website for our breakfast and lunch menus and prices. Breakfast starts on the first day of school. |
Note: Penn Manor School District has, for the past two years, provided breakfast and lunch free of charge to all students. For the upcoming school year, the waivers that enabled school districts to offer free meals during the pandemic have expired. This means that families that want to receive meals free of charge in the 2022-2023 school year must apply for free and reduced-priced meal benefits. If your children qualified for free and reduced-priced meals in previous years, they will be able to receive them until October 1, 2022. To extend those benefits for the entire 2022-2023 school year, families must reapply
Our specials are as follows:
Day A Music
Day B Applied Engineering (Marking Periods 1 & 2) / Library Instruction (MP 3 & 4)
Day C Phys. Ed.
Day D Art
In a typical week, spelling packets are distributed on Monday and are
due on Thursday. Spelling tests are on Friday.
When you’re ready to do a little back-to-school shopping, here is what each student will need this year:
One (1) large (2”- 3”) 3-ring binder
Five (5) pocket folders/dividers marked for math, reading, spelling, writing, and content (science and social studies)
Pencils and erasers
Box of Dry erase (Expo) markers and an eraser (a sock works wonderfully)
Items you like to be creative with – colored pencils and/or markers and/or crayons
3-hole drilled loose leaf notebook paper
Glue stick (optional)
I also request that each student contribute a box of tissues and one container of anti-bacterial wipes or hand sanitizer for the classroom.
You will need a book at all times for independent reading. (I will be checking for this on the first day.)
Please bring these items with you on the first day of school. If you’re unable to purchase them, please let me know and we’ll work together to make sure everyone has what they need.
I am looking forward to seeing you on August 29!

Click here to fill out the application, which considers family size and household income. Parents will need to create a SchoolCafe account to access the application.
Here are instructions for filling out 2022-2023 application. Here is a paper copy of the application that can be filled out and submitted to the food service department. Here are income requirements for families.
By submitting your application, your school may receive additional funding to improve nutrition and education programs. Applying for free and reduced-price meals also can help families with fees for SATs, PSATs, college applications, advanced-placement exams and other expenses that may come up during a child’s high school career. Qualifying for free and reduced-price meals also means your family may qualify for additional benefits, such as a low-cost internet service.
Please complete the 2022-2023 application online as soon as possible to take advantage of these benefits!
If you have any questions or need help with the application process, please contact Penn Manor food service assistant Deanna Witmer, at Deanna.Witmer@Pennmanor.net or food service director Courtney Kolp, at Courtney.Kolp@Pennmanor.net.
