Kids at Work Day

Parents and Guardians,

I have attached a flyer about Kids at Work Day. This is always a fun day to see how creative students are in presenting their future careers! I will encourage our class to participate.


Kids at Work Day 

Friday, February 24th, 2023

Construction Worker       Athlete        Dental Hygienist 

Retail Manager         Vet        Artist       Fashion Designer 

Chef           Entrepreneur        Teacher           Firefighter

As a way to promote career exploration and awareness with our elementary students, Penn Manor elementary schools are planning a special day across the district.

On Friday, February 24th, 2023, students will be invited to wear clothing that represents careers that they may be interested in exploring as an adult. For example, your child may come dressed as a construction worker, a doctor, a teacher, etc. Please make sure that your child’s clothing is appropriate for a day of learning and wouldn’t distract other students in his/her classroom.  As an added component to the Kids at Work Day, teachers and staff will be wearing their college, military, trade school, or past/present career attire.

Our hope is that Kids at Work Day will be a great way to start conversations at home and at school about different types of careers, why someone chooses a career, and what kind of training/schooling is needed to get started in a particular career.  

The Penn Manor Elementary School Counselors would like to thank you in advance for your support of Kids at Work Day. If you have any questions, please contact your school’s counselor.

Field Trip to Millersville University

Parents and Guardians,

Last week your child should have given you a permission form to sign for our trip to Millersville University on January 31, 2023. If you have already sent it in, thank you! If you have not seen the form, please ask your child to take it out of their red folder for you to sign.

We need forms returned by this Thursday the 26th. Thank you for your prompt attention. We look forward to seeing the performance!

Parents and Guardians,

Earlier this week in Social Studies I assigned a geography project. Students are to learn where the 50 states are located on a map and the capital of each state. I have provided resources for the students to use, both on paper and in our google classroom. Whenever students are ready to demonstrate their knowledge, they may take the required quiz. Students have until January 19 (the last day of the marking period) to take the quiz.

New school year


I hope this message finds your child making a smooth transition to middle school. This message also serves as an invitation to unsubscribe from my blog so your inbox will not receive messages intended for my current 6th grade class.

As I shared with your child at the end of the school year, I am always available as a resource if needed; your child will always be my student. 🙂
