Grading for the 4th Marking Period

As a result of the unusual end to our school year, we have adjusted how we grade for the fourth marking period.  For kindergarten, the students will receive an N/A which represents non-applicable .  First and second grade students will receive what they had earned in the third marking period.  In grades three through six, students will earn a pass or fail grade.  Students may be acknowledged for all the outstanding effort they exhibited in the fourth marking period in the comments. All students in grades 1 and 2 specials will receive a Satisfactory and all students in grades 3-6 specials will receive a Pass; however Outstanding, Good, and acknowledgement in the comments may be given based on completion of remote learning assignments.

MU/PMSD Study Buddy Program – Update & Feedback

Dear Penn Manor Families,

Thank you for your participation in our Penn Manor/Millersville University Buddy Program.  Millersville students & Penn Manor families have expressed interest in continuing this program over the summer.  GREAT NEWS!  While there will not be the traditional, school year academics, our Millersville buddies are happy to continue with specific areas of educational need.  For example: multiplication tables, spelling words, reading/writing, even telling time, are skills we can continue to work on throughout the summer.  In lieu of the academic piece during the school year, are there any additional subjects, hobbies, and/or extracurriculars that you would like the Buddies to (remotely) meet about?  For example: maybe a specific sport, type of art, music, video games, etc.

Please complete the form HERE to give us valuable insight as we grow the program in the future and to help us pair buddies who are wishing to continue throughout the summer.

Did you see…this program was featured in the May 20th edition of the Merchandiser/Advertiser!  The article was titled, “MU Supports PM’s Transition to Online Learning.”  Our Millersville students strive to share compassion and contribute to public mission while we all navigate these unchartered times.  We hope that your child was able to benefit from this virtual relationship.

We look forward to hearing from you soon,

Allison, Lori, and Nazli

Congratulations to the Penn Manor Class of 2020

On behalf of all of the Letort staff, congratulations on your upcoming graduation!  Typically at the end of this school year, you would be walking through the Letort Halls as a Penn Manor graduate.  Unfortunately, this year with COVID 19, this celebration will not be possible.   However, we would still like to recognize you and all of your work. You are an outstanding group of graduates and we wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors!

Meal Distribution for May 26-29

In observance of Memorial Day, Penn Manor will not be delivering meals on Monday, May 25.  We will be distributing meals on Wednesday, May 27.  This is the final day that meals will be distributed for the 2019-2020 school year. 

Meet your Grade Level Teachers for Next Year on May 29th!

For many years, we have done a transition activity on the last day of school for our students and it is one that has become a tradition at Letort that we want it to continue. Since we are not able to be together for our students to meet the teachers in the next grade level, we have created a time for all students to meet the teachers and get to know the expectations of the grade level for the 2020-2021 school year.

Below is a list of the times for each grade level. I will provide the Google Meet Codes on the morning of May 29th by 8:00 AM. Please look for a blog post with that information. At your designated time ON MAY 29th, simply copy and paste the code in your browser and click join to access the meeting. Please remember the Google Meet etiquette guidelines when participating in the session (listed below). We will have a large number of students on each Google Meet session.

We are so proud of you!
Thank you Mrs. Cook, Mrs. Warfel, and Mrs. Jacoby!

Meal Distribution for May

Penn Manor has implemented a meal distribution plan for students that utilizes students’ morning bus stop locations. The free, bagged meals will be delivered by school buses and will include a lunch and breakfast that meet school nutritional standards.  These meals are available to any PM student.

Families will receive a lunch and breakfast for two days on Mondays and Wednesday drop-offs include meals for three days.  The following dates are distribution dates:  May 13, May 18, May 20, & May 27.  There is NO distribution on May 25. May 27 will be the LAST delivery of meals for the 2019-2020 school year.

For elementary students, meals will be delivered by buses at students’ regular bus stops at times that roughly correspond with their regular school pickup times. It is a good idea to check the stops on the bus routes below, if you are just joining us, so we don’t miss you.

At all locations, a student should be present for a family member to pick up their meal bag, and family members may pick up meal bags for all members of their family who attend Penn Manor schools from a single location/stop.

A New Addition to Letort

It is with great honor that I announce a few staff changes for next year. Mrs. Binkley will be joining Mrs. Gwyn in teaching fourth grade. She is thrilled to be staying with her students for another year and I know, without a doubt, the students will be just as excited!

Additionally, we will be welcoming Mr. Glenn Wolfe to the Letort team as our new third grade teacher. You may remember him from a few years ago when he was our substitute for Mr. Kelley in applied engineering. In the past few years, he has been teaching at Martic. We are excited to have him join the team!

Teacher and Staff Appreciation

This is a week to celebrate all the teachers and staff at Letort. Usually we are granted the joy of spending the day together. This year is different, but children can certainly show their appreciation for their teachers. Send a photo or video or send a special picture or email to your teacher to let them know how much you respect and value them. Without a doubt, each person at Letort would love to hear from you. Let’s fill their inboxes with messages of appreciation.
