This special event is intended for all parents, guardians, grandparents, friends, and community members and will be presented by the Caron Foundation with special guest speakers Ms. Nicole Rex, Student Assistance Program Lead Specialist, and Ms. Stephanie Owsiany, Student Assistance Program Specialist.

Kids At Work Day!

Screen Shot 2015-11-11 at 7.18.37 PM

Students will celebrate “Kids at Work Day” on Friday, February 24, 2023, with the help of the elementary counseling department.


Construction Worker       Athlete        Dental Hygienist 

Retail Manager         Vet        Artist       Fashion Designer 

Chef           Entrepreneur        Teacher           Firefighter 

   Caregiver            Marine Biologist        Police Officer


As a way to promote career exploration and awareness with our elementary students, Penn Manor elementary schools are planning a special day across the district.

On Friday, February 24, 2023, 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.  

The Penn Manor Elementary School Counselors would like to thank you in advance for your support for Kids at Work Day. If you have any questions, please contact your school’s counselor.

Solanco SWEEP Program

Dear Parents and Guardians:

Martic Elementary School has partnered with the Solanco Food Bank to provide weekend meals for students who may need the support.  We understand that times can be difficult in this economy and the cost of food can be overwhelming, so the Food Bank is offering a weekend food bag, per elementary student, each week throughout the school year.  To participate in this program, your family must qualify for FREE lunches at school.

The food will be delivered to students each week on a Friday  (or the last day of the school week).  The food will be given to students in bags before going home.  The Food Bank will try to offer a variety of pre-packaged foods each week.

If you are interested in having your child/ren participate in this program, please complete this google form. The program is on a first come, first serve basis, so please submit the form as soon as possible.

This is a great reminder to reapply for free and reduced lunch if you haven’t done so already!
