Volunteer Information

I love having parent/grandparent volunteers in first grade!  With this new school year, Pennsylvania is requiring that all school volunteers get criminal background, child abuse, and other clearances.  Most clearances can be obtained with no cost.  Please click here for a listing of requirements, with links to online and print application forms.

If you have any questions about the new requirements, please contact the Penn Manor Human Resources Department, at (717) 872-9500, ext. 2247.

Summer Shopping!

Hello!  I hope you are all enjoying your summer so far.  I have been working hard, but also having some fun too!  My students will all receive a welcome letter in August.  While you may be thinking about school, here is a reminder of some supplies you will need in first grade this year.  

-pencils (sharpened….no mechanical pencils please)
-dry erase markers (EXPO brand is the best)
-glue sticks
-a quality eraser

I also ask students to supply a tool-box to keep all of these items.  Wal-mart and the dollar store have several.  Kid-friendly scissors and a highlighter are also welcome.  Please leave hand-held pencil sharpeners at home (for safety reasons).  Thank you!

I am looking forward to seeing you all next month.  Enjoy the summer and check your mailboxes in mid-August!!
