Good morning! My class will have an opportunity to shop at the Book Fair tomorrow (Tuesday) during our Library Instruction. Students may bring in money if they wish to purchase anything. Thank you and Happy Monday!
Also, we have a scheduled early dismissal on FRIDAY. Students will be dismissed at 1:30pm.
As a way to promote career exploration and awareness with our elementary students, the Penn Manor elementary schools are planning a special day across the district.
On Friday, February 22nd students are invited to wear clothing that represents careers they may be interested in exploring as an adult. Adults in the building are encouraged to wear college/military/post secondary clothing.
I can’t wait to see what our students come to school dressed as! 🙂
REMINDER: There is NO SCHOOL on Monday, February 18th in observance of President’s Day. Have another great, long weekend!
What started out feeling like it was going to be a long week, turned out to be a very short week here at school! I hope you are all staying warm 🙂 Some important dates:
TODAY – Report cards are coming home! Please sign the envelope and send it back to school.
February 8 – Wear your favorite sports jersey to school
February 14 – We will have a Valentine Exchange on February 14th. A list of students will be sent home today. My only rule is that if your child participates in the exchange, he/she MUST bring a Valentine for every member of the class.
Happy Friday! Here are some important dates to remember in the coming weeks. Please touch base anytime with questions and concerns 🙂
February 1st – Wear Red AND Report cards will come home. Please sign the envelope and return it to school.

March 4th – Human Growth and Development Lessons – An informational paper was sent home yesterday. There is no permission slip for this lesson but if you do NOT want your child to participate, please contact Lisa Heisler, the school nurse.
We had a great week in 6th grade. We are working on fun Holiday packets for writing, we performed “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” for our 2nd grade buddies in Mrs. Hoke’s class and our band and chorus had a fantastic concert on Wednesday night! We also began our next reading unit…..A Spy Unit!
Next week we have several holiday activities planned. Please make sure you are signing the contract allowing your child to participate. We are looking forward to a fun (and a little bit crazy) week! 🙂
IMPORTANT: Every student needs a can of icing to make gingerbread houses on WEDNESDAY. Please send one in as soon as possible OR let me know if you need help, and I am happy to provide icing for students. Thank you!! 🙂
