Safety Lesson

Dear Second Grade Families, 

Every year, Penn Manor provides a Personal Safety Program for second grade students. The program is presented in a positive, non-threatening manner, using an age appropriate video entitled, “It’s Your Body: You’re in Charge” by Human Relations Media. The subject material to be discussed will include determining “okay” and “not okay” touches, learning to trust feelings, establishing the concept of private zones, being assertive, and asking for help. 

Your child’s class is scheduled for March 30 at 12:40pm

Parents/guardians are welcome to attend their child’s session of this Personal Safety Program, or may arrange to preview the materials in advance. If you would like to attend this program, please email/call me at the below contact information. 

If you would like your child excused from the program, please notify me in writing no later than March 29, 2022.


Dr. Shannon Madara

School Counselor

Heart Challenge

Dear Parent/Guardian,
Our schools are participating in a very special community service program to raise funds
for the American Heart Association.  We’re joining in the fight against our nation’s No. 1
and No. 3 killers – cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
Kids’ Heart Challenge events are held at schools nationwide and not only help students
learn about the benefits of regular physical activity and heart health, but also raise funds
to support vital heart and stroke research as well as educational programs.  Although
all 3 rd -6 th -grade students will jump rope at the events as part of physical
education, and all 1 st -2 nd  grade students will be involved in various
movement activities, the students are NOT required to raise money; in
other words, raising money is optional, BUT greatly
appreciated.  HOWEVER, JUST BY REGISTERING ONLINE, your child will
receive a free wristband and help the school to earn additional funds for
equipment!! If your child raises money, individual prizes are also earned
(please see the collection envelope that was sent home for prize

Collection envelopes will be sent home as soon as they arrive to CM. They
are expected to arrive shortly!
KIDS HEART CHALLENGE events will be organized as follows:
Grades 1-6 will complete the challenge during Physical Education class the last week of
February. Deadline for fundraiser collection will be Friday, March 4 th 2022.
The American Heart Association is dedicated to helping people live longer, healthier
lives.  The money we raise helps people in our community learn how to avoid heart
disease and stroke and also helps our local patient care.  Our schools will qualify for gift

certificates for free physical education equipment based on the amount we raise, and
students will qualify for individual thank-you gifts based on the donations they collect. 
Family and friends are welcome to support your child’s participation by making
contributions.  However, we ask that children not go door-to-door and ask strangers for
donations.  If your child receives any cash donations, please convert those to
a check prior to turning in the collection envelope.  All checks should be
made payable to the American Heart Association.  Your student’s collection
envelope should be turned in to his/her classroom teacher on or before
Tuesday, March 4 th so that we can have an accurate tally of the money raised
by the end of the events! 
Also, don’t forget to ask your child’s donors if their employers have matching gift
programs.  This is an easy way to increase donations collected by your child.  To find out
which companies will match the American Heart Association, please visit
matchinggifts.com/aha.  All matching gift forms should include your child’s name and
school name so the donations can be properly designated.
Kids Heart Challenge is a fun event that helps our children understand the importance
of community service and physical activity while helping to save lives. Our efforts truly
are meaningful and can make a difference!  Thank you for your support.

Mr. Binkley
