Lesson 19 Spelling and Vocab

We are STILL planning to have our regular spelling and vocab quiz on Friday. We made the students aware of this on Tuesday when there was the threat of severe weather and possible cancellation for Wednesday. We took last week of due to the short week, but need to make sure we stay on track this week. Please make sure students are practicing their spelling words and vocab words for this week. There are plenty of opportunities (including on our 5th grade Moodle page) to study!

Kids at Work Day–February 22nd

Kids at Work Day is on Friday, February 22, 2019!

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 22, students are invited to wear clothing that represents careers they may be interested in exploring as an adult.

Our hope is that Kids at Work Day is 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.
