Next week is a very short week with the Thanksgiving holiday. School is in session Monday and Tuesday only. Students return on Tuesday, 11/29.

Conestoga Elementary teachers and staff would like to wish our school community a safe and happy Thanksgiving. We are thankful for the opportunity to work with your amazing children, and the unwavering support of our families, especially this year as we are at three schools.

Thank you to everyone that donated food items for the Penn Manor School District food drive. Your support is greatly appreciated!

Thank you Parents and PTO

A great BIG thank you to our Conestoga families for coming to Pequea this year for parent/teacher conferences and making this yearly opportunity another success story for us.

Last Thursday started out as a normal busy day at all three of our temporary homes, but we all ended up at Pequea for conferences AND a delicious meal that was provided by our wonderful PTO.  We can’t thank you enough for always being so thoughtful.
