How to Apply for Free and Reduced Lunch

School is right around the corner. It’s not too early to start getting ready. You and your family may be eligible under a federal program for Child Nutrition:

Research has shown that good nutrition has a positive impact on a child’s ability to focus and learn. It is important that we provide a nurturing environment for each child, so that individual success as a student can be maximized.  We would encourage you to review the links below and submit an application.  Even kindergarten students can qualify for meals; which is certainly helpful if you plan to send them to breakfast or for the days when they have a chance to eat lunch at school with the older students.  Please contact Krista Cox for more details.  All information is confidential.  Many families are unaware that they qualify for this meal assistance program.

Papers copies will come home with your child on the first day of school.

Lunch for the First Day of School

A lunch – Chicken Patty on a Roll

B lunch – Egg McComet

C lunch – Peanut Butter and Jelly

D lunch – Yogurt and string cheese

All lunches will include french fries, red pepper strips with dip, fruit, juice and milk. 

The cost of lunch is $2.35, milk is included in the price of lunch.  If your child would like to purchase milk to go with their packed lunch, the cost is .60 cents.

A check written out to PMSD is the easiest way to pay for your child’s lunch, just put your child’s name on the memo line and they will be set! Make checks payable to Penn Manor School District. You can write the check just for the week or for a month or more.  This is so helpful for your child! Please let me know if you do not want your child to purchase snacks/ice cream.

Breakfast and Lunch menus are posted on the school district’s website

6th Grade Carnival

Dear First Grade Parents/Guardians-

As part of the sixth grade’s “Pay it Forward” project, the students will host their annual end of year carnival on June 3rd and 4th .  During an extended recess time for all grade levels, the sixth graders will host carnival games and a bake sale.  Stations will include, but are not limited to, a soccer challenge, cup stacking, ring toss, relay races, face painting, and bake sale. 

Students in grades K to 5th bring in spare change (coins only please!) to play the games at each station. All money that is collected goes to a charity selected by the class. This year the students selected Water for South Sudan. This organization delivers direct, transformative and sustainable quality-of-life service to the people of South Sudan by efficiently providing access to clean, safe water.

Since all sixth grade students in the district read the book entitled, “A Long Walk to Water”, which discussed the life of Salva Dut, our classes thought this would be the perfect charity to support. The charity was founded by Salva himself in 2003.
