Kids at Work Day

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 11th, 2022 students will be invited to wear clothing that represents careers that 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 the 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.  

The Penn Manor Elementary School Counselors would like to thank you in advance for your support of Kids at Work Day. If you have any questions, please contact your school counselor.

1/28 Early Dismissal, AM-K 9-1:30, PM-K No School

An early dismissal day is fast approaching! AM Kindergartners will have school on Friday from 9:00 am to 1:30 pm. (Please Note: Student Arrival begins at 8:45 if being dropped off and dismissal begins at 1:25 if being picked up.)  This also means that PM Kindergarten students will NOT have school.

Your child will ride the bus to school in the morning and home from school at dismissal.  If you plan to pick your child up from school, please be sure to send me an email or a note to the school so we are aware of the change. Kindergartners will eat lunch at school.  Lunch costs $2.35 but is currently FREE for ALL students.  If your child would like to pack a lunch and buy milk, the cost is $.60 for milk – this is not free as a single purchase.  Below are the choices for lunch.  We have limited the selections this year to help get the students through the lunch line in a timely manner.  

A lunch: Waffles & Sausages
C lunch: Peanut Butter and Jelly
D lunch: Yogurt and String Cheese
