Below is a link to Sign-Up Genius for parent volunteers for our May 7th Field Day. If you have any questions please contact me.
We had a great time at the IU13 STEM Competition. Our Martic students did a wonderful job representing themselves and the school. If you see them congratulate them on a job well done.
Dr. Seuss Week will be here next week (March 4th-8th), and Martic Student Council has lots of fun dress up days planned to celebrate Theodor Geisel’s birthday.
We are looking for a few parent chaperons for our field trip to the State Capitol Building on Thursday, March 14th. If you are interested please let me know. The school must have all of your updated clearances. I will start reaching out to interested parents on Friday. (Email or Dojo are the easiest ways to get in contact)
If you have any additional questions about the field trip, please feel free to contact me.
Penn Manor school district will be having on early dismissal today, 1/29/19. Elementary students will be dismissed at 12:00. Please let me know if you have any questions.

As a way to promote career exploration and awareness with our elementary students, Penn Manor elementary schools are planning a special day across the district.
On Friday, February 22, 2019 students will be invited to wear clothing that represents careers they may be interested in exploring as an adult. For example, your child may come dressed as a construction worker, a doctor, a teacher, etc. Please make sure that your child’s clothing is appropriate for a day of learning and wouldn’t distract other students in his/her classroom. As an added component to Kids at Work Day, teachers and staff will be wearing their college, military, trade-school, or past/present career attire.
Our hope is that Kids at Work Day will be a great way to start conversations at home and at school about different types of careers, why someone chooses a career, and what kind of training/schooling is needed to get started in a particular career. To help facilitate discussion at home regarding career development, please refer to the “additional resources” at the end of this post for some fun, age-appropriate career development activities.
At Penn Manor High School, about sixty-eight percent of our students attend two-year or four-year colleges. Fifty percent go to four-year colleges, and eighteen percent go to two-year colleges. About seven percent of our students go directly into the military, and about ten percent go on to one-year certificate or training programs. Fifteen percent go directly into the workforce. About twenty-two percent attend the CTC each year to gain a year of Technical Education during their senior year of high school to study fields such as: Residential Carpentry; Heavy Equipment Operator; Protective Services; Sports Medicine; Medical Assisting; Diesel Mechanics; Automotive Mechanics; Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning; Large Animal Production; Dental Assisting; Plumbing; and much more.
The Penn Manor Elementary School Counselors would like to thank you in advance for your support for Kids at Work Day. If you have any questions, please contact your school’s counselor.

In support of our Warwick family who suffered a tragic loss on Friday, and another this morning we are encouraging all faculty, staff and students to wear red on Monday. Thank you for your support. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.
Recently, we had a wonderful assembly celebrating the “magic” of reading! Joe Romano came to our school and performed magic for a very excited group of students. All of the magic helped emphasize for students the joy and wonder in reading.
