Hambright Mitten Tree

Dear Families,
Our annual Mitten Tree will be set up in the Hambright lobby. Let’s synergize and fill our tree with mittens, hats, scarves and gloves that will be donated to families in need. All sizes from infant to adult will be accepted. Donations must be new and are due by Friday, December 21. Thank you for helping to keep Penn Manor families warm this winter!

Red Ribbon Week

Hi families!  Next week we are celebrating Red Ribbon Week to show that we are proud to be drug free.  Monday is “Team up against Drugs.”  Students can wear their favorite sports shirt or jersey on MONDAY.  Have a fantastic weekend!

Week ahead….

Good morning!  We had a great time at County Park last week for our field trip.  We enjoyed a nature hike, geocaching, and several team building activities, including blind football which was a lot of fun.  

This is a friendly reminder that there is NO SCHOOL this Friday, September 28th.  Have a wonderful week!

Happy Monday!

Friday is our field trip to Lancaster County Park!  Please be sure to have permission slips returned by Thursday.  Also, please fill out the form that was sent home indicating if your child is bringing a disposable packed lunch, or if you would like the cafeteria to provide a packed lunch for you.  As of now, the weather looks decent (and pretty warm).  Shorts, t-shirts and sneakers are appropriate attire.  We will be outside all day!  🙂

Also, we will have school pictures taken first thing Friday morning before we leave for our field trip.  We will give students time to change their clothes if they would like to wear something special for pictures.  You can pre-pay online for pictures or send in a check with your student on Friday.

We are looking forward to a fantastic day!  Please email or call with questions or concerns.  Thank you and have a great week!

Rita’s Night!!

Come out to Rita’s Thursday evening (Sept. 6th) between 6-8pm.  Teachers will serve as “celebrity” scoopers and all Hambright students will receive a free ice.  I’ll be scooping at 6pm, hope to see you there!
