Kids At Work Day

Friday, February 23rd

As a way to promote career exploration and awareness with our elementary students, the Penn Manor elementary schools are planned a special day across the district.

On Friday, February 23rd, 2024, students were invited to wear clothing that represents a career that they may be interested in exploring as an adult. 

Our hope is that Kids at Work Day will be a great way to start conversations at home and at school about different types of careers, why someone chooses a career, and what kind of training/schooling is needed to get started in a particular career.

Applied Engineering 

What is Applied Engineering? Every student in grades 1 through 6 participates in this STEM related class, but too often, parents are unclear about what exactly the students are learning about or what they're working on in this field. Here is a website that not only explains what Applied Engineering is, but it also showcases the projects that each grade level works on with an explanation and pictures of example projects. You can always contact Jenna Moyer with questions!

What is a Hallway Hero - 10/5/22

A Hallway Hero is any student who has been recognized for extraordinary behavior in the hallway. When students get recognized, they may add their name to the hallway poster. In the future, Once a name continues to get put on the poster, that student will be promoted to a Hallway Patrol. Hallway Patrollers will monitor the hallways at the end of the day at dismissal.

LeTort students celebrated International Dot Day on Sept 15th by creating a collaborative school-wide art display.  Inspired by the book The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds, students expressed themselves by creating a one-of-a-kind unique dot.  Each grade level had a color theme to make the rainbow effect in the final display.  Students also participated in writing or telling someone something encouraging as this was a theme in the book.

THE LETORT RUNNING CLUB!

The Letort Running Club officially started on Tuesday!  Recess Running Club is a FUN activity for our students that helps encourage fitness and wellness, personal goal setting, motivation, stress reduction, and social skills. Students can choose to walk, run, or jog laps around a course during lunch recesses on certain dates. Many thanks to Dr. Janssen for bringing this wonderful opportunity to the students of Letort.

Got Sneakers 

8/21/22

Got Sneakers???  Who doesn't?  Whether you're cleaning out your closets for new, back-to-school items or getting rid of old, outgrown sports gear, it all works for GotSneakers!


This year, LeTort PTO will be partnering with GotSneakers to not only help the environment by keeping old sneakers out of landfills but also raising money for our school!  And all you have to do is get rid of your old sneakers!!


Here’s how you can help:


Start in your and your family’s closets and gather as many PAIR of sneakers that you no longer want. You can ask your neighbors, family members, friends, co-workers, and anyone in your social networks to help out. Every pair counts!


Once you collect, bring them to the LeTort playground on WED. AUG. 24th any time between 3pm and 7:30pm to drop off.  PTO will bag them and return them to GotSneakers for money back to LeTort and all the great programs we support at our school!

Camp Letort 

8/12/22

Some second and third graders joined a few Letort teachers over the past two weeks to engage in fun reading and math activities.  These second graders "camped" as they practiced essential literacy skills, which included making words, writing, reader's theater, and more.  It was wonderful to seeing their smiling faces each day.
