Elementary Art Show

This Thursday, May 3rd, is the Art show at the High School from 5-8 PM.  All families are invited to come out to view the beautiful Art work created by the students of Penn Manor.  If your student has an art piece entered in the show a paper came home today from our Art teacher letting you know.

End of year Fun

A paper came home today inviting parents to volunteer at our first grade field trip to Hands on House/Oregon Dairy an/or for our first grade splash party.

Please let me know if you’re interested in helping with either of these activities.  We are able to take a limited number of parents into the Hands on House, so if we have more than 5 parents who volunteer I’ll pick names out of a hat.

Thanks so much!
