Reminder – Parent Teacher Conferences

Today, your child’s teacher will be sending a Google calendar link for you to sign-up for a parent-teacher conference on either November 23rd or 24th.

Below are two videos (parent guide to parent teacher conferences & checking student email) that may be beneficial for you to view prior to signing up for your conference.

Please contact the school office with any questions.

Bus drivers

This week is identified as Bus Driver Appreciation Week. Our PTO was very gracious and provided each bus driver with a gift card to select a favorite snack in the morning or afternoon. The Martic staff decorated the doors out front celebrating our drivers.

This year is an unusual year for so many reasons, but it also impacts our drivers. They have addressed these changes with professionalism and flexibility. We are very lucky. Please ask your children tonight…. “Did you give your bus driver a compliment today?”

Calling All Weis Shoppers!!

Please consider linking your Weis Reward Card to Martic and start earning $$$$$ for our school! It’s easy super easy to link, simply show the following letter with barcode or school number to your cashier at checkout. The cashier can scan the barcode or enter our school number 87750, and you are set to start earning money for Martic!!

Free Meals for the Entire School Year!

We are pleased to announce the nation wide waiver has extended free meals for all students through June 2021.

Martic Chicken BBQ ~ October 10th

On October 10th, our Martic PTO is teaming up with The Martic Pantry for a Chicken BBQ. The BBQ will be held at Martic Elementary. We will begin serving at 10am and continue until we sell out! It will be a drive-through style! You will enter the parking lot closest to Tucquan Glen Road and exit closest to Nissley Lane. We are excited about this partnership because it will help to support our school! Meals can be purchased for $8 and include chicken, chips, applesauce, dessert, and a drink. Chicken can be purchased separately for $5.

We are asking you help spread the word and come to school on October 10 starting at 10am to buy chicken. Be sure to tell your friends and family to stop by too! 

Updated Penn Manor App Now Available

A new Penn Manor School District app is now available for free download to keep parents and students informed of the latest news about their schools.

The app provides access via cellphone or tablet to school district alerts and news, school contacts and directions, athletic schedules, menus and more.

You can download the app for free for Android devices and for Apple devices. If you currently have the older version of the Penn Manor app on your device, you should delete it.

Schedule Reminder

Just a reminder that we have an early dismissal Friday.    This means all children will be dismissed 2 hours early from school (1:30 PM).  This also means that the bus drop off time at the end of the day will be 2 hours earlier.   If you forget this time, please refer to your transportation letter that was sent out.

Early dismissals and how they pertain to kindergarten:     On early dismissal days we host one class of kindergarten.   It is either AM or PM.   Friday, October 9th, all of the PM class will attend school the full day (9:00-1:30) and will eat lunch at school.    The AM class will not have school on this day.

Penn Manor schools will be closed on Monday, October 12. As a result, Group A will be in session on Tuesday (10/13) and Wednesday (10/14), and Group B will attend on Thursday (10/15) and Friday (10/16). There will be no online instruction on Wednesday (10/14).

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
