Millersville University Swimming Clinic

Millersville University announces its 2016 swimming clinics, which begin March 14th.  The program has groups for 5 year old beginning swimmers to older students who are seasoned swimmers.

You can register online at Millersvilleathletics.com, click on Camps, and click on Swimming to take you to their information page.

If you are interested, I have a flyer in the school office that your child can pick up.

Spring Picture Day

indexOn March 14th, Inter-State Studio will be at Conestoga to take Spring Pictures.  In the next few days, we will be sending home two popular picture programs that the Studio offers.  If you plan to order prints from either (or both) programs, be sure to place the appropriate order and payment in the correct envelope.  Also on these flyers is a unique order code if you prefer to order online.

ONLY students ordering Spring pictures will be photographed on picture day!

Attendance Notes

Parents – Starting tomorrow if your child is absent, you should be receiving an automated call from Penn Manor letting you know your child is absent.  Obviously, at the elementary level, you do know you kept your child home. We very much appreciate your calls, emails, notes regarding absences. However, in the future, if you call us to report an absence, we still need the physical note/email based on state requirements. If we could have them within a day or two of an absence, we can update your child’s attendance history record. Thank you.

Several parents who attended Kindergarten Information Night have not yet done an online registration for their child.  Also, there are many parents who have submitted their online registration, but have not called to make an appointment to meet with Mrs. Carol Alexander to complete the process.  It is important that your child be completely registered so he/she can be included in the session assignments.  Please click on the link below for more information on completing your child’s kindergarten registration.
