Class of 2020,

The Penn Manor Education Association (PMEA) will be purchasing and donating age-appropriate books to each elementary, middle, and high school library on the topic/theme of grit and resilience with bookplates inside the front cover dedicating them to the Class of 2020 from the Penn Manor Education Association.  PMEA is a sponsor of Read Across America on Dr. Seuss’s birthday, which many members of the Class of 2020 might remember participating in while they were in elementary school.  We will always remember the Class of 2020 as they leave Penn Manor and embark upon the next leg of their journey…”Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” 

The following books (and more) will be purchased and dedicated in honor of the Class of 2020!
