Week of April 20th-24th

Hi 4th Grade Students and Families,

I hope you continue to be safe and well.  Thank you to those who have been able to reach out and complete the activities posted last week.  I have enjoyed receiving the many assignments from 4th graders.  I am very impressed with their creativity!  Keep up the great work!  Please know that I am here to help you and your child as we continue to navigate through remote learning.  Please email me, if needed!

April 20th-April 24th Beginning Monday, April 20th, Penn Manor will begin to introduce NEW learning concepts/ideas to students.  Teachers will keep track of student participation in Sapphire, and continue to provide feedback to students as well.   There will be 5 assignments students will be completing.

Find the NEW learning activities here:  There are 2 ways you can access the NEW learning assignments for April 20-24. 

#1: Penn Manor’s Remote Learning site…


If you navigate from the district remote learning site, you will need to MAKE A COPY of each  document before writing on them.  To do this, go to FILE, and scroll down to MAKE A COPY. Then you will work on that copy and will be able to SHARE it with me. (kelley.groff@pennmanor.net)

 #2:  Students can also access the activities on Mrs. Groff’s Google Classroom page, or our 4th Grade Hambright Shared Learning Google Classroom page.  Once there, click on CLASSWORK at the top, and find the activities for the week.  Click on the activity and the document that you can write on will come up.  When you are finished, SHARE with me. (kelley.groff@pennmanor.net)

Optional Schedule:  Below is an OPTIONAL schedule with you for next week’s learning activities.  You may choose to use it, or not.  I just want to share it in case any fourth graders and families could benefit from it.  If it’s not needed, simply ignore.  Continue to work through the activities at a pace that works best for you and your family.

  • All assignments can be found on the Remote Learning Website OR on Google Classroom. Use either avenue to access assignments.
