Dear Parents and Students,
Penn Manor High School’s goal is to prepare students for life after high school. As the 2010-2011 school year approaches, we are provided with an opportunity to prepare our students academically and with the skills that will be needed in the future. Because of the quality teachers, the supportive parents and community of the Penn Manor School District, our students will be prepared for their future when we all fulfill our role in the education process.
Since our world is experiencing significant change it is ever more important that we all take a part in ensuring that our students are best prepared for the future. Students are encouraged to take challenging and beneficial classes. With the varied offerings that Penn Manor High School offers, students need to take the highest level of classes that they are eligible for and classes that are relevant to their career interests. Parents are asked to be supportive of their child and help them meet the demands of this year. We as educators will need to examine our curriculum, investigate ways of incorporating technology into the classroom, and be cognizant of what our world is requiring of our students.
For each of us, our future is somewhat uncertain but will be full of new challenges. I hope that each of you will embrace the challenges the new school year brings and strive to be successful in your role as we prepare students for their future.
Philip B. Gale
