Tomorrow is Our Last School Day of the Year.

So we will say farewell to our sixth graders and wish them well in middle school. We also say goodbye to Mrs. Altdoerffer and Mrs. Williams. We will miss them. We are also welcoming Ms. Lovett as our new third grade teacher and Mrs. Ragland as our new secretary. For the rest of the students we hope they have a great summer and we will hopefully see everyone in the fall. To celebrate the end of the school year, we will have a crazy hair/hat day tomorrow with 11:30 dismissal time.

Guest Speak and Harvest Day

Thanks to the American Heart Association our students listened to a guest speaker discuss ways to keep our heart’s healthy by eating healthy. We then paired up with The Edible Classroom, Manor FFA and our wonderful parent volunteers to harvest our garden.

Sixth Grade and the Fish Project :)

The sixth graders have a school wide project that involves every classroom and a large jar of Swedish Fish. They allow each student to guess the number of fish in the jar and then after the guessing is complete, the sixth graders sprang into action, scrubbing, calculating, creating, and dissecting the data they collected, eventually crowning a Swedish Fish guessing champion. The champion, Mrs. Ochs’s Fourth Grade, received as a prize the entire jar of fish (a windfall of 926 candy fish).

Professional development hosted for our preschool and kindergarten teachers

On April 12th Penn Manor hosted their annual early childhood professional development opportunity at Manor Church.  The topic this year was based on best practices for teaching phonological awareness to children ages 3-6 years of age. Educators left the training excited to implement some new techniques learned at this training.   

There were ten different preschools represented at the training.  Those preschools included; Lancaster Head Start, Jenkins School, Kids Express Preschool, Mt. Nebo Preschool, Pequea Preschool, Preschool Express, Stepping Stones, St. Philips preschool and Willow Street UCC preschool.    Funds were made possible for this training through the P-3 Partnerships Pathways grant provided by the United Way. We are very thankful to have this time for professional development and learning.

A consortium of ideas.
