This year, we will participate in a coat drive to help replenish the supplies at The LOFT Community Partnership, which benefits families within Penn Manor. We are asking for NEW or GENTLY USED AND WASHED winter coats, hats, gloves, mittens, and scarves. These items can range from children’s to adult sizes. Your donation will stay local and help Penn Manor families in need. If you choose to donate any of these items, please send them in a bag with your child to school. The coat drive will run until the end of October. THANK YOU!!!
The Power Packs Project empowers families with education and ingredients to create nutritious weekend meals, so their children return to school fed and ready to learn.

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!
