Each year, the Penn Manor Elementary Counselors provide a Personal Safety Program for all second grade students. During this program, we will be using a video called “It’s Your Body; You’re in Charge” by Human Relations Media. Our Assistant Superintendent, Dr. Egan, has approved this video.
We will discuss “OK” and “not OK” touches, learning to trust instincts and feelings, establishing the concept of private areas/zones, being assertive, and asking an adult for help.
Please check this blog post frequently for updates to the scheduled program times for each classroom.

Martic SWEEP Program: Student WeekEnd Eating Program
Martic Elementary School partners 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 in need, each weekend throughout the school year starting the week of September 14, 2020. To participate in this program, your family must qualify for free lunches at school.
The food will be delivered to school each Tuesday or Thursday to accommodate our hybrid schedule. The food will be given to students in bags before going home. There will also be an option for Penn Manor Virtual School families to pick up their food bags on Wednesday mornings at the Solanco Food Bank (355 Buck Road, Quarryville) from 9:00 am to noon, beginning Wednesday, September 16, 2020. The Food Bank will try to offer a variety of pre-packaged foods each week.
How do you participate? Please use the form that fits your situation. Please note that this program is on a first come, first served basis, so don’t delay! If you are interested, please complete the form as soon as possible.
