Hello Families! The following message comes from our school counselor, Dr. Madara.
Dear Fourth Grade Families,
Every year, the Penn Manor Elementary School Counselors provide a Personal Safety Program for all fourth grade students. We present this program in a positive, non-threatening manner, using an age-appropriate video entitled, “Dealing with Abuse: If It Happens to You” by Human Relations Media. Dr. Egan, our Assistant Superintendent, has approved this video. We discuss “okay” and “not okay” touches, learning to trust feelings and instincts, establishing the concept of private areas, being assertive, and asking for help.
Classes in fourth grade at Central Manor will be receiving this lesson the week of May 17th, 2021.
If you would like your child excused from the program, please notify me in writing no later than May 13, 2021.
Dr. Shannon Madara
