Penn Manor students place first and second in traffic safety billboard design contest

  Three Penn Manor students have been honored for their designs of a billboard to encourage safe driving.

   Kate Nikolaus placed first and Kyle Sullenberger and Travis Clawson placed second in the “No Excuses Youth Traffic Safety Billboard Design Contest,” sponsored by State Farm Insurance and the Center for Traffic Safety.

   All three students are Penn Manor High School sophomores.

   The contest was open to students in Lancaster, Lebanon, Adams and York counties.

   Kate’s design includes a bright, stylized image of an iris, with the message “Keep your eyes on the road” running across the frame.

   Her design will be featured on a billboard from May 9 through June 5 along Route 462, about 1 mile west of Centerville.

   Kate received a $100 prize for her design, and Penn Manor High School will receive $1,000 to support traffic safety education efforts.

   The design completed by Kyle and Travis depicts a driver’s view through the windshield, showing one hand on the steering wheel and the other holding a cellphone with the message “Put it DOWN so families don’t FROWN!!”

   In the upper right of the frame is the message “Be the change!”

   Their design will be used in social media messaging during May, which is Youth Traffic Safety Month. As part of their award, the high school will receive $500 for traffic safety education.

   The students created their designs under the guidance of Jenn Forney, a physical education and health teacher at the high school.

   Congratulations to these three students and their teacher!

Mask Information for March SAT

Effective with the March 2022 SAT weekend administration, The College Board requirement that staff and students wear masks remains in place for 2022; however, centers where local policy or practice does not require masks during school may opt out of this requirement for the March SAT administration.           

Therefore, Penn Manor will not be requiring masks for the March 2022 SAT weekend administration.  A student that wants to wear a mask at a center that has opted out of the mask requirement will be permitted to do so.  College Board will ask students who are experiencing symptoms of illness to postpone taking the SAT at no cost.

If you have any questions, please contact Gail Ulmer at gail.ulmer@pennmanor.net.

Mini-THON says Thank you!

On behalf of the Penn Manor mini-THON club, we wanted to thank all of YOU!  Without your support, time, talents, donations, and encouragement, our event would not have been possible AND Penn Manor’s incredibly generous donation to four diamonds would not have been attainable. PM’s mini-Thon club smashed their goal and raised an astounding $45,710.39.
