“Oh, The Places You’ll Go”

Kids at Work Day–Thursday, March 4, 2021

In coordination with Read Across America, all Penn Manor Elementary Schools will celebrate Kids at Work Day on Thursday, March 4, 2021.

Students will be invited to wear clothing that represents a career 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 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. Thank you ahead of time for supporting this fun day!

6th Grade Sexual Harassment Prevention and Cyber Safety

Dear 6th Grade Families:

Every year, the Penn Manor Elementary School Counselors provide a program on sexual harassment prevention and cyber safety for the sixth grade students.  We use two age-appropriate videos for teaching purposes, entitled “Flirting or Hurting:  When Is It Okay, When Is It Harassment?” and “I Was Cyberbullied,” both produced by Human Relations Media.  Our Assistant Superintendent, Dr. Egan, has approved these videos.

During the program, we will be discussing the definition of sexual harassment as well as exploring the Penn Manor School District Board Policy and reporting procedures. Students will learn the differences between sexual harassment and flirting.  We will also be defining and discussing examples of cyberbullying and learning the steps to take when responding to a sexual harassment or cyber safety incident.

The schedule for 6th grade classes at Conestoga and Martic are as follows:

6M at Conestoga: Thursday, January 28, 2021

6S at Conestoga: Wednesday, January 27, 2021

6F at Martic: Tuesday, January 26 and Friday, January 29, 2021

6T at Martic: Wednesday, January 20, 2021

If you would like your child to be excused from the presentation, please notify me in writing no later than the morning of your child’s program.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Kimberly R. Juba, School Counselor
