Kids At Work Day!

Screen Shot 2015-11-11 at 7.18.37 PM

Students will celebrate “Kids at Work Day” on Friday, February 11,  2022, 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 11, 2022 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.

Sincerely,

The Elementary School Counselors

Nichole Hinkle, Hambright

Kimberly Juba, Conestoga and Martic

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 the 6th grade classes at Conestoga and Martic are as follows:

6M at Conestoga: November 8th and November 10th, 2021

6S at Conestoga: November 8th and November 10th, 2021
