Please consider volunteering to help create a fun day for our students on May 12th! Use the link below to sign up for Olympic Day! The activities run much more smoothly with plenty of volunteers 🙂
Today is the 100th Day of School! We celebrated this day in our 5th grade classrooms by completing several math challenges centering around the number “100”. Whether it was solving order of operation problems that equaled 100, estimating and counting how much physical activity can be done in 100 seconds, or even determining if you can finish a tootsie pop in 100 licks, the students definitely enjoyed their morning!
Please see the link below for information about “Kids at Work Day!” on February 11th (Friday).
Winter greetings, Letort families! We will once again be having a Coin Collection Challenge in conjunction with a PJ day this year! We have decided to support The Loft with all of the donations received! The Loft services many of our Penn Manor families by filling multiple needs.
Each classroom will decorate their door by Monday, January 24th. A coin collection jar will be placed outside the door on this Monday as well. Students can bring in coins and dollars to put in their classroom jars OR in the classroom jar of their favorite door!
We will end our collection with an ALL SCHOOL PJ DAY on Friday, January 28th. Perfect timing for the PTO sponsored Family Movie Night that evening!
**It is VERY helpful if you can clean out any bobby pins, trash, etc. These tend to clog up the coin collection machine.**
In order to support Penn Manor families during the holiday season, we will be collecting the following items at each school throughout the district. If your family is able and willing to donate, we would very much appreciate your generosity! We will be collecting the items listed below between Tuesday, November 30th and Friday, December 10th.
Kindergarten – toothbrushes
1st grade – toothpaste
2nd grade – bars of soap
3rd grade – combs/brushes
4th grade- bottle of shampoo
5th grade – bottle of conditioner
6th grade – deodorant
7th and 8th grade – NEW socks (all sizes)

If your family would like to make a monetary donation, please send the amount you choose by check to your child’s school secretary by December 10th. Make your check payable to “The Loft Community Partnership,” and on the memo line write “Holiday Gifts.”
On FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 19th, we will be celebrating our first marking period Hall of Fame. We will have a special activity in the gym for any 5th grade student who has been demonstrating ROCKSTAR behavior traits throughout the marking period. In order to earn a spot in the Hall of Fame, students must submit a majority of their homework assignments completed and on time. They must exhibit good behavior in class and throughout the school. We keep track of behavior and assignments each week and award students their “weekly check-mark” if they have missed no more that 2 assignments in one week.
For our 1st marking period celebration we will be signing-out the gym for a “Game Day”. We will also be taking down the climbing ropes for any student interested in trying to climb them. We read a story early on in the year from our reading books about a student who enters a new school and has to climb the rope for a physical fitness test in gym. A new friend helps to teach the boy how to climb the rope and encourages him throughout the story. 5th graders are always anxious to try their hands (and feet!) at climbing a rope on their own. This activity is obviously optional, but we will take any necessary safety precautions to make sure that the students are able to attempt this in a safe manner.
Students are welcome to bring in their own board games from home to play with their friends during this time!
