Schedule for Penn Manor Lunch and Learn

Lunch & Learn

Beginning in February, each of our seven elementary schools will welcome preschool children and their parents/guardians to story time, crafts, lunch and a visit to the school library to check out books that will be returned the following month.

Lunch & Learn is designed to familiarize future students and their parents with our schools so they become comfortable with the school setting prior to their first day.

Lunch & Learn activities will be held from February through May. The May events will be held in the evening, but all others are over lunchtime. Attached is a printable schedule that includes phone numbers for each school. Please call to reserve a spot and confirm the time of each Lunch & Learn. Printable schedule

You may attend at your home school or any other elementary school in Penn Manor. Siblings are welcome, and a parent/guardian must accompany all children.

Please RSVP if you intend to come to the February 8th date from 11:45-12:45 at Conestoga by calling Mrs. Ragland at (717) 872-9535.  



PTO FUN RUN INFO

Conestoga Families,

The PTO is hard at work planning our biggest and most important fundraiser of the year. Our

annual Fun Run will take place on Friday May 3. The students love this memorable event, they

show their support for our school by running laps and participating in activities.

This year it will be bigger, and better than ever! Students will have chances to win incredible

prizes and experiences they will never forget!

Along with local businesses, we are asking families to help raise money for our school leading

up to the celebratory Fun Run. The funds raised will go directly to our students through

instructional supplies, playground equipment, field trips, assemblies, family events, and many

other school wide programs.

In the spring your child will bring home a packet of information explaining how to set up an easy-

to-use online platform. Please share with relatives, friends and neighbors to help us reach our

goal!

EXPECTED AND UNEXPECTED BEHAVIORS

Conestoga Elementary is starting to build a school-wide GROWcabulary this year. These are terms and ideas that we want all students to be familiar with and to use throughout their day. Mrs. Eckroat, our school counselor, has spent the past month going into all of the classrooms teaching about expected and unexpected behaviors. Students have learned that expected behaviors are those that make others feel comfortable, safe, and happy, while unexpected behaviors are those that make others feel uncomfortable, unsafe, and upset.  

Kindergarten, first, and second grades had a second lesson where fifth and sixth graders helped Mrs. Eckroat with the lesson and activity. The fifth and sixth graders were wonderful role models and helpers during these lessons with the primary students!
