Penn Manor seeks public input on how to use pandemic funds

Penn Manor School District is seeking feedback from parents, students, staff and community members to help determine how the school district should best utilize funding made available through the American Rescue Plan (ARP).

Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funding is available through the ARP to Penn Manor for one-time or short-term expenditures to address the impact of the pandemic on our students and schools.

We invite you to complete a brief survey to help the district prioritize how this funding should be used.

Meet The Teacher Night 1/27

Penn Manor High School’s “Meet the Teacher Night” will be held on Thursday, January 27, 2022, from 6:00-8:00 pm. We are back to having this event in person. “Meet the Teacher Night” is a drop-in style format. Parents are invited to come into school to meet their student’s teachers and see the classrooms. This event is an open house format, so individual student conferences are not allowed. Teachers will give an overview of their course requirements and expectations. You will also be able to stop into the media center to ask any questions you may have about the new Act 158 graduation requirements.

Parking is available in the front of the building or on the parking deck in the back of the building.  Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
