We WILL be having our Chapter 13 Math TEST on Area and Perimeter on Monday! Please REVIEW over the Ch. 13 Practice Test that we started in class today. Students, look over these this weekend, so that you are READY for the TEST on MONDAY!!

Our Spelling Lists will continue to be difficult…thanks for your support at home with them!

TDA…Text Dependent Analysis- We have been working VERY HARD on writing our 4-5 paragraph essays on various prompts. We will continue to practice these as they account for 25% of individual student scores on the PSSA.

Important Information for PMSD for MARCH 1…

Snow is forecast for Thursday night into Friday morning, and there is a possibility of a two-hour delay on Friday, March 1. If the start of school day is delayed, we would cancel the early dismissal scheduled for Friday, March 1, and students would be dismissed at the regular time. In either case, only afternoon kindergarten will be in session.  At this time, the current schedule has not changed, but we want to alert parents and guardians of the possibility that this may change. We will keep you updated via the district website, Twitter feed, cell phone app and local media outlets.


Dr. Michael G. Leichliter
Superintendent of Schools
Penn Manor School District
