Penn Manor Remote Learning Opportunities!

Hello 5-O! The district has created a website to provide optional learning opportunities to all students in the district. Please head to the elementary page and click on 5th grade for some engaging math, ELA, and content review activities. I am available to answer any and all questions pertaining to the activities. When students complete an activity, they are encouraged to email me their work or share it with me through google drive. Remember- this is OPTIONAL and will not be graded. I will provide feedback though! Happy Learning! I miss you all so much!

Penn Manor Proud!

In this time of uncertainty, it’s clear that Penn Manor has an amazing community. Let’s show our PM pride by wearing blue and gold or other Penn Manor attire on Wednesday, March 25. Share your photos with the #PMProud tagline via Twitter, Facebook, or any social media account.

Please Read:

A message from Dr. Leichliter: Penn Manor schools are closed through March 27 in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak. It is unclear whether that status will change or when we may be able to resume normal operations. As we all deal with this unprecedented challenge, we want to let students and parents know that the education of children is on hold as the district evaluates options moving forward. Penn Manor continues to follow direction from the Pennsylvania Department of Education. Please understand that teachers will not be instructing students, grading assignments, or corresponding on instructional matters during the current 10-day closure. While teachers may have resources for students such as active Google Classrooms for their lessons, there is no expectation for student attendance or submission of assignments between March 16 and March 30.

As most of you know, I taught my class how to check their emails and compose emails on Friday. Please let them know they can email me anytime during this time (for whatever reason!!) I would love to hear from them. At this time, no assignments are required of them. Stay Healthy <3

Attention Families!

Hello families!

I understand there may be questions surrounding any expectation for students to complete work/assignments during the two-week closure. At this point, I will hold off on communicating anything specific until I receive more information about any district plans.

In the meantime, I would recommend students take the opportunity to read and possibly spend time on web-based learning sites we often use (i.e. Prodigy, Khan AcademyFog Stone IsleNewselaBrainPoP, Discovery Education, and CS First – Scratch ).

Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns. I will do my best to assist in any way that I can.
