Just a reminder that tomorrow, 3/27, is Penn Manor’s first “Kids at Work” day.  This is a way to promote career exploration and awareness with our elementary students.

The p.m. kindergarten class enjoyed their work day today, since they are off tomorrow due to a.m. kindergarten attending and the 1:30 early dismissal.

Screen Shot 2015-03-26 at 2.17.13 PMYour child is invited to wear clothing that would represent a career that he or she may be interested in exploring as an adult. For example, your child may come dressed as a construction worker, doctor, 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.
