February is Kindness Month!

We have a few special events planned this month to promote kindness in our school. We are especially excited about a Kindness Door Decorating Contest that is coming up soon. Be sure to ask your favorite 6th grader about the theme we chose as a class.

This Friday, February 7th is an early dismissal day. Dismissal at 1:30pm.

We are having a Valentine Exchange on Friday, February 14th. My only rule is that if your student wants to participate, they must bring a Valentine for everyone. A class list was sent home yesterday.

I am missing some report card envelopes. Please sign the envelope and send it back to school with your student.

We are having Career Day again this year. See below for details.

As a way to promote career exploration and awareness with our elementary students, the Penn Manor elementary schools are planning another special day across the district.

On Friday, February 21, 2020 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. Adults  may also choose to dress up in clothing that represents a career. 

Our hope is that Kids at Work Day will 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 for your support at home and please let me know if you have questions/concerns!
