PreK expo and Kindergarten Information Night ~ coming soon!

January 2, 2020

On Tuesday, February 4th the Penn Manor School District will sponsor an event that targets our youngest learners in our district.  The event is held at Hambright Elementary School (3000 Charlestown Road, Lancaster, PA  17603).   The snow date will be 2/5/20.

Preschool Expo:   Beginning at 6:15 PM to 7:00 PM Penn Manor families will have the opportunity to network with all of our local preschools to learn more about preK programs in our area.   Enrolling your child in a preK program helps to build a solid foundation for learning and ease the transition to school.    We hope to see you there!

Kindergarten Information Night:  Promptly at 7:00 PM, our Penn Manor kindergarten teachers will provide an overview of our kindergarten curriculum and ways you can help to ensure your child is ready to attend kindergarten.   If you have a child who will be five years of age on or before September 1, 2020, they are eligible to enroll in kindergarten.   You won’t want to miss this event.

Thank you Girl Scout Troop 70146 for donating a book called No Smoking, No Drinking, No Drugs to Conestoga Elementary as part of your Community Service Project. I know this book will be a great resource for both teacher and students.

Last Week at Conestoga

Last week we celebrated our Spirit Wear fund raiser by dressing up in a variety of different ways throughout the week. We took a lot of wonderful pictures.

We ended the week with a spirited assembly hosted by our 3rd grade students and their teachers. They treated us to what being Conestoga Proud means to them and made us feel very special when we passed through the cheering line.

Then just to complete an amazing Friday afternoon we enjoyed a concert by our very own Mr. Markes. He is a very talented piano player.


Sometimes it is just nice to take a moment and enjoy how lucky we are that we can be together and enjoy each other on days like this.

Tree Houses in 5th Grade

The fifth graders had a great time on Friday, September 27 creating model tree houses based off of the story “Rope Burn”!  They all used their creativity when it came to what supplies they used from home and school.  Here is just a sampling of some of the houses that could be found in fifth grade…

Reward for Summer Reading Challenge

Congratulations to all our students who earned an ice cream treat for completing our reading challenge this summer. That is the way we roll at Conestoga.

This is the Way Conestoga Rolls!

These students were recognized at our last assembly for their positive behavior in school and on the bus. Way to be Conestoga Proud!
