Sapphire Parent Portal Request Instructions

Last year the Sapphire Parent Portal was changed so that you no longer need to print out the application and mail it in to sign up for a parent portal. Now everything is an entirely online process. Below are the most recent Instructions for this new process.


School is Closed for Today

Penn Manor is now closed.  School will now be in session on Tuesday, April 3, 2018.


Penn Manor has a two hour delay this morning with a modified kindergarten schedule.

2nd Semester Starts on 1/17/18

The semester 2 (marking periods 3 & 4) schedule is listed below. Your child will have the subjects on one of the cycle days that is listed. Any questions, please email his/her teacher. Thank you

*** The Applied Engineering program has been added to your child’s curriculum in for marking periods three and four. This program is a hands-on, problem based learning approach where students will be taught to think critically and solve problems using a technology design loop. Your child’s progress will be communicated on a separate insert to accompany the report card for marking periods 3 & 4. The teacher for this class is Mr. Kelley.

Winter is Not Over Just Yet

I know this has been an interesting winter, with some very cold days and then some unusually warm ones.  Because of this, the students are ready to throw down their coats and long pants and break out the shorts and suntan lotion.  However it is still winter, so in order to be adequately prepared for whatever the weather is, I am requiring that students be wearing long pants to go to outside recess until winter is over on March 21st.

Book Fair Success Story

The fall book fair was SO successful, our PTO was able to have the library staff purchase over $1,700 worth of books for our library. That is INCREDIBLE!!!!

Parents/friends/relatives – thank you for purchasing books and other items at our book fair so that ALL students at Conestoga will be able to enjoy a new and wide variety of books. Below is a picture of some students from Mrs. Fellenbaum’s class opening the first of several boxes of books.
