We reviewed the three types of matter by making matter root beer floats! The root beer was our liquid, the ice cream was the solid, and the foam was the gas.   We learned about physical and chemicals changes in matter. We created our own physical changes using play-doh.    Today we learned about perseverance. We showed perseverance by creating boats out of tin foil and getting them to float. Students kept trying and persevering until their boat could float. Then, they were given the added challenge to have their boat float while holding pennies. Some groups got their boat to hold over 40 pennies! They had a great time working with their partner to create their boat!

Update on Events

First I want to remind everyone that Tuesday will be an all -club meeting.  We will not have another one until tentatively April 20th.  If you cannot make the meeting you need to e-mail me.  Students who do not attend club, are not on the tutoring list, and do not e-mail me your location, will have their names submitted to the office as cuts.

READATHON:  

The Readathon is in full swing and the first one went well.  We are still in need of more helpers!  Below is who I have signed up for each day.  I also have a couple reminders.  You MAY drive yourself since this is after school.  I only need a field trip form if you are riding in the van.  Please communicate with me if you are driving yourself so that I know.  We will set up at each school beginning around 3 and we should be done with clean-up at 5pm.  Your job includes reading a Dr. Seuss book for 5 minutes and running an associated activity.  You will do this 5 times as students rotate around the stations.  You will have a partner to run your station with and you can take turns reading.  It’s very easy!

  • Hambright, Tuesday, March 28th:  Alaina Breitbach, Abby Consylman, Ryan Nicklas, Morgan Smoker, Ava Dunford-Groves, Evan DeVitry, Megan Ritchey- Could use a few more!!

PMEA babysitting:

The Penn Manor Education Association is having a meeting for all of the teachers and has requested our services babysitting.  The meeting is Monday, April 3rd from 4-5:30pm at Manor Middle.  We need a couple students to watch teacher’s kids in Mrs. Jackson’s room.  There will be coloring pages and crayons as well as a few games for the kids to play.  We will also put a movie on the projector.  Please e-mail me if you are able to help out!  Unfortunately I can’t be there so I’m looking for some responsible helpers.  The meeting where the teachers are is right across the hall.  So if there is an emergency you can just walk over and get the parents.

Long’s Park Clean-up Day

Keep getting those permission slips in!  You may leave them in the green folder outside room 383 or drop them off at the office and ask them to put it in my mailbox.  We need all the help we can get on April 21st at Long’s Park!

Ms. Lutz's Learners and Leaders

What’s Been Going On in 5-L?

After nearly a week off and 1.5 days of school before the weekend, I wasn’t sure if and how we’d survive a whole week back! Somehow it has flown by.

Right now we’re:

-Studying measurement in math

-Studying American government in Social Studies

-Studying Earth features and changes in science

-Reading lots of nonfiction, including a non fiction story about turtle rehabilitation and newspaper article about Sesame Street’s new character with autism, Julia. We studied “The New Colossus” by Emma Lazarus, which is the poem inscribed on the Statue of Liberty.

-Reviewing grammar and forming and writing contractions.

-Writing how-to pieces. We will be filming how-to videos at school, so some students may want to bring in materials (though they aren’t necessary). We will be attaching these videos to our writing using an app called Aurasma.

Please note:

  • Signed field trip permission forms for our Barnstormers in Education Day field trip should be returned to school as soon as possible. All T shirt order forms are due by March 31.
  • Scholastic Book Orders are due by March 31.
  • End of Marking Period 3 is March 30th
  • All spelling extra credit is due by March 30
  • This Saturday, March 25th is the Science is Amazing Festival at Lancaster Science Factory! Admission is free and it looks like there are lots of interesting and relevant activities for fifth grade.

I’ll post pictures tomorrow- my home computer is being uncooperative 🙂

Aucott's Announcements

March 23rd Update – Field Trip Tomorrow…Weather Permitting!

Tomorrow is our field trip!  To say that the class is excited is a bit of an understatement.  They could barely focus today.  The weather forecast for the morning does not look encouraging. IF THERE IS ANY SORT OF SCHOOL DELAY TOMORROW, THE TRIP WILL BE CANCELLED.  (Please don’t scream.)  The school district takes your child’s safety very seriously so they will be watching to be certain we have safe travels.  I’m glad they care that much.  If we do have the trip it is to be rainy right when we are walking outside, so we are trying to bring our umbrellas too, besides our lunch and snack.  Let’s hope for good weather.

Have a good evening.

Bowling team earns second straight state title

For the first time in history, a Penn Manor athletic team has won back-to-back state titles.

The boys’ bowling team accomplished that feat when it beat Ephrata, 194 to 160, to earn the PIAA Bowling Championship title March 18 at Dutch Lanes in Ephrata.

“It was more exciting to win the second one than the first one,” said coach Chris Vital. “The hard work that we put in paid off.”

Penn Manor qualified for regional competition after finishing second behind Warwick (coached by Chris’s brother, Neal Vital) in Section 1. The Comets then placed fourth in regionals, earning them a spot in the state playoffs March 18.

The top 12 teams in the state – six from the east and six from the west – went head to head, and Penn Manor ended up in second place, tied with Pennsbury, at 4,115 points each. Amazingly, one pin either way would have broken the tie.

That forced the Comets to win a tie-breaker against Pennsbury before facing them again in the semifinal round.

“They had beaten us the week before, and they have a good team, so it was going to be a pretty close match,” Vital said. “But we beat them both games” in the best-of-three match.

Before taking on the top seeded Ephrata team, the Comets had a 30-minute break they used for some last-minute practice that Vital said helped hone the team.

The first game ended in a tie, but the Comets won the tie-breaker when Nick Fisher rolled two strikes in the 10th frame. Penn Manor easily won the second game to clinch the championship.

Vital credits the win to that last-minute practice, clutch bowling by seniors Fisher, Tanner Simet, Kyle Shertz and Austin Curtiss, and strong fan support.

“We had a much bigger fan base there compared with last year’s final in Pittsburgh,” he said. “A lot of students were there. A lot of alumni were there. It was just a really big base, and I think the kids responded to that.”

Other members of the state championship team include Nick Mease, Dan Mease and Mark Smith. The coaches are Vital, Ed Fisher and Alan Wakefield.

The Comets now qualify to participate in the U.S. High School Bowling National Championship in Smyrna, Tennessee,  in June.

Congratulations to all for making Penn Manor history!

March 22nd Update

This Friday is our field trip to Harrisburg.  Children need to be at school by 8:00 a.m.  If your child normally eats breakfast at school, they may go right to the cafeteria, eat, and then report to our classroom.  I will be at the front door to let everyone inside.  We will return to school in plenty of time for the children to take their regular buses home.  It should be a great day!

 

Last week there was a wonderful Science Expo.  We had more then 60 children from Martic and Conestoga participating.  Here are a few pictures from our classroom’s young scientists.

Measurement

On Monday, we began our measurement unit of study.  Throughout the unit, we will discuss 4 different types of measurement: length, height, weight and capacity.  We even have special ways to say each word!  Ask your child to tell you the words using their special voices.

Today, the students lined up from tallest to shortest after they finished learning about height.  Have your child tell you who they are shorter than and taller than.  If they are the tallest or shortest, they can tell you that too!

Here’s a fun song to listen to about measurement…

Third Grade Thoughts from 3S

Our writing continues…

Since I have included you in the beginnings of the writing planning, I wanted to let you know that students started writing their actual story today.  Students are responsible for finishing the first three paragraphs of the story,  following the “recipe” of their prewrite.  Each paragraph should should have a topic sentence (the reason why they should try their topic) as well as the three details that included on their prewrite to back up their reason for trying it.

Mrs. Binkley's Third Grade Thoughts

PSSA Snacks

Hi Parents,

PSSA Testing starts on Monday, April 3rd. During the testing period, third graders will have a later lunch. To help the students get through the long morning, I would like to be able to provide them with snacks. I have created a Sign-Up Genius for the snacks that we will need. If you are able to send in any of the snacks, it would be greatly appreciated! Here is the link for the sign-up: PSSA Snacks 

Additionally, students will be allowed to bring in water bottles, gum, and/or hard candy during testing. I will send more information on this next week.

As always, thank you for all of the support that you provide at home. I am so thankful to have amazing students and families!

Nearly 200 attend forum on heroin, opioid abuse

Nearly 200 people turned out Tuesday night to take part in “Heroin: A Community Conversation,” a public forum on the opioid and heroin epidemic, held at Penn Manor High School.

The event included a panel discussion with health care and counseling professionals and recovering addicts, followed by a question-and-answer session.

Panelists included Jack Pacewicz and Rebecca Moyer, who shared their personal experiences with addiction and recovery, and Dr. Joseph Troncale, who talked about the signs, symptoms and origins of addiction. John Balzer, alcohol and drug counselor at Millersville University, and Amy Sechrist, prevention specialist at Compass Mark, talked about accessing treatment and the importance of prevention.

“Not doing prevention for a public health crisis is madness,” Sechrist told the crowd. “Addiction is fatal if left untreated. Prevention works.”

State Sen. Scott Martin and state Rep. Bryan Cutler sponsored the event, which was coordinated by the Lancaster County Anti-Heroin Task Force, Lancaster General Health/Penn Medicine, Compass Mark,  the Lancaster County Mayor’s Association and Millersville Mayor Dick Moriarty.

Addiction counseling and recovery providers shared information and resources with attendees from booths set up outside the auditorium.

Drug overdose deaths in Lancaster County have more than tripled over the past four years, due largely to the widespread availability of heroin. In the past year, several Penn Manor graduates have died from overdoses.

Community members interested in additional education outreach on the heroin/opioid epidemic are urged to contact Dr. Mike Leichliter, Penn Manor superintendent, at mike.leichliter@pennmanor.net or (717) 872-9500, ext. 2223.

Thanks to all who participated in this important discussion. Let’s keep the conversation going!
