I put together this slideshow to remind you of all the special memories that we made this school year. I hope you enjoy watching it and it brings back lots of fond memories of our year together. I am so sorry we had to end our school year this way. I loved being your first grade teacher and loved getting to know each and every one of you. I hope you enjoyed meeting your second grade teachers this morning. Have a wonderful and safe summer. I look forward to seeing you again as we hopefully begin the new school year together. Love, Mrs. McElheny
I have had several questions regarding specials. On the remote learning website, there is a folder for each special. In the folder are activities for the students to complete. You do not need to do all the activities everyday for all specials. When we are in school, we only have one special a day. So, pick one special each day and choose an activity of your choice for that day. For example, you might do an activity for art on Monday, an activity for gym on Tuesday, an activity for applied engineering on Wednesday, and an activity for music on Thursday. Friday, you could do one of your favorites. By all means, if your child needs more to do and they want to do all the activities, feel free! They are there for you, if you need them. The activities for each special get emailed to that particular specialist. I am so pleased with all of the quality work I have been receiving from students. Thank you parents for supporting your child’s education at home! If you have any questions for me, feel free to email me anytime.
Message from Mr. McCabe about Remote Learning Physical Education:
Dear Phys. Ed. friends,
I hope that you are staying safe and well. In an effort to remain consistent with your child’s homeroom teacher, I am respectfully asking for your assistance to submit your 1st and 2nd grade student’s Physical Education assignments to me directly, via e-mail.
Please send a picture, or preferably a short video, whenever you are able to: email@example.com allowing your student to explain WHAT activities they completed, HOW they were able to complete them, any CHALLENGES they had to overcome, HOW they were able to overcome those challenges, and what they ENJOYED about each activity.
*** If you have a student in 3rd – 6th grade at home, please ensure that they are connected to my Google Classroom. Students must be signed into a device using their Penn Manor username (Student I.D.) and password. It will not work if they are trying to do this using a personal Gmail account. You may contact me directly via e-mail to get the Google Classroom class code if they have not yet received it from their homeroom teacher ***
I can’t wait to see how my young friends do with their P.E. assignments while they are stuck at home. Please know how much I miss seeing your students every day.
Take care and look after each other!
Mr. Steven McCabe Physical Education Specialist Eshleman and LeTort Elementary Schools
