School Spirit Days

We will have an all-school assembly on Thursday, January 30th. Show your Letort pride with a Letort or Penn Manor Tshirt!  

Bring in ANY canned food item any day next week to vote for the next winner of the Super Bowl in our annual SOUPer Bowl contest! 🥫🥫🥫 Then, wear ANY team Jersey or T-shirt next Friday!! 

Also, on Friday, our class is partnering with our Kindergarten Buddies and dressing as if we are 100 years old in honor of the 100th day of school! 100th day outfits can be combined with football team apparel!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We are thankful for having time together as we learn! This week was short, but the class performed a reader’s theater of Stone Soup and learned the central message is “giving makes one happy.” Using all the ingredients the class brought in, we made real stone soup and ate it at a banquet yesterday afternoon!

In science, students have been learning about rocks, types of soil, and layers of soil. Then they created “layers of soil” dessert for our banquet!

This morning, we helped our third-grade buddies make “Friendship Snack Mix” after the amazing Blue Ribbon Award school assembly.

We have so much to love and be thankful for this season! I wish every family a safe and happy Thanksgiving! Mrs. Wright

EI Time

Third and fourth graders have begun participating in an enrichment and intervention time daily to meet each child’s needs in the area of reading.  Teachers reviewed beginning of the year data on each student and established groups for instruction based on reading needs and/or strengths identified through this data.  In order to maximize our resources, some groups may be a combination of third and fourth grade students.  These groups are flexible and may change based on the progress of the students.  
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to your child’s teacher, Mrs. Yoder, or Mrs. McPherson.

Vocabulary Day Parade

How’s the costume coming along?

All students need a costume at school on Monday, May 20th! The day will be filled with fun activities and the costume parade will be at 2:00. Please have your child let me know if any items are needed for this fun school-wide event!

Please remember, parents and younger siblings are invited to come to the parade. We will travel across the front of the building from the baseball field end to the playground end. We would love to see you there!

Letort Book Swap

LeTort will be holding our Book Swap again this year.   Get ready to clean off your book shelves and check under your bed to find those books that you’ve already read!

Your child may swap as many as 20 books.  We welcome donations if you have more than 20 books.  (We can especially use intermediate books.) We will make sure that they get in students’ hands.   Please bring in books May 20 – 24.  The swap will be held the following week.

Field Trip Change

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the all-school field trip scheduled for April 3, 2019 has been moved from The Ware Center in downtown Lancaster TO The Winter Center at Millersville University.

If you have returned a permission slip that does NOT permit your child to attend, I hope that you would reconsider your child’s participating in this opportunity. If another permission slip is needed, please contact the school office at 717-872-9530.
