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 week throughout the school year starting September 17, 2021. To participate in this program, your family must qualify for free lunches at school.
The food will be delivered to school each 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.
How do you participate? Please use the form below. 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.

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!
