Please see a message below for ways to help those in our district who may need support over the holidays.
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Every year Penn Manor School District assists families in need with Thanksgiving meals. We would like to make this process more uniform across the district. We will be collecting the food listed below between Monday, November 1st and Thursday, November 11th. If you have a child in one of these grades, please consider donating to help our community.
Kindergarten-boxed mashed potatoes
1st grade-boxed stuffing
2nd grade-canned corn
3rd grade-canned black beans
4th grade-white rice
5th grade-apple sauce (NO GLASS)
6th grade-canned gravy (NO GLASS)
7th and 8th-Cornbread or Muffin mix-water based
If your family is able and willing to provide more than what is listed above and would like to make a monetary donation, please send the amount you choose by check to your child’s school secretary by November 11h. Make your check payable to the Loft Community Partnership and on the memo line write “Holiday Food Basket.”
On Nov. 22nd and 23rd we will be offering Parent Teacher Conferences. Each conference is 15 minutes long, and you may choose an “in-person” conference or a “virtual” conference. (For in-person conferences, masks must be worn in the building at all times.)
Below are the links to sign up for either Mrs. Moyer’s conferences or Mrs. Beighley’s conferences. Please only sign up for your child’s HOMEROOM teacher.
You will need to sign in with a Google Account (you may use your students, but please note that the confirmation email will be sent to THEIR school g-mail account. If choosing a virtual conference, you will need to use their gmail account to log in to the actual meeting as well.)
Here is a video with directions for signing up. Be sure to include your child’s name and “in-person” or “virtual” in the description box when you sign up.
Today we spent some time working together and problem solving! Students received minimal materials and very little instruction. Their job was to collaborate to figure out how to get the cups from one formation into another without touching the cups with any part of their body! We had some MAJOR success. Awesome job ROCKSTARs!
