Some Updates…

****Hi Everyone! I miss you all so, so much and continue to think of you each day! I hope that you are doing well! If you are looking for some fun learning opportunities, below you will find some information and the link regarding these optional activities.

****Penn Manor educators have developed continuity of education plans to help students continue learning from home while our schools are closed. 

Here is a link to the resources.

These are optional, ungraded learning activities that students can complete from home. The resources have been developed to meet a variety of students’ needs and may not be the same across our school district. 

Teachers will be accessible to students and parents and will respond to any questions about the learning activities in a timely manner.

Currently, schools are scheduled to reopen April 9, but that date may change depending on Governor Wolf’s orders.

Thank you for your support of your child’s education in this challenging time.

****Finally, be sure to check out the Central Manor blog for our CM song and new video that was made for Central Manor families!


Hi Everyone!

Hello Families!

I miss you all SO much and have been thinking of each and every one of you! I miss your stories, smiles and YOU! Thank you for your patience as we are figuring things out for school.

We are looking forward to returning back to some sense of “normalcy” and offering some online resources soon.  To be honest, at this time we do not know what this will look like.  The district’s teachers will be receiving training for the remainder of this week. The one thing we need to know right now is whether or not you have internet access.  It would be greatly appreciated if you can please email me to let me know. My email address is heather.piatt@pennmanor.net

Please know that this venture is new for all of us.  We appreciate your grace and patience in advance!!
