Miss Rynier's Second Grade Class

Response to Seth Godin

Stop stealing dreams! Education should be used to inspire. I think he’s saying that education in the past has been solely used to build obedient and almost robot-like students. If we want students to learn then we need to create an environment that is exciting and builds background knowledge so students get interested. I believe in some ways that he is right when he says if students can look something up then they do not need to memorize it. Memorization is a skill that people need and one that I believe tests the brain, but memorization is not learning. Children should enjoy being in school and excited to find subjects/topics that excite them!

Mark Your Calendar!!

As we did last year, our Open House will take place BEFORE the start of the school year. This will give everyone the opportunity to take a look at our brand new building in order to have a sense of where they need to be going on the first day of school.

Our Open House will take place on Monday, August 21st from 4:30-6:30. This will take the place of the Elementary Open House scheduled on the district calendar in September.

The first day for students is Thursday, August 24th.  Can’t wait to see everyone under the same roof!

Enjoy your summer:)

End of Year Wrap Up

I have to apologize as I realized that I never posted these great pictures which were taken while on our field trip to the Lancaster County Park. Thanks to our lovely PTO for making this day possible! It truly was an interesting year being divided among three schools; before we know it we will all be back together under one roof!

Penn Manor Cross Country

Severe Weather Conditions

It is quite probable that several of our late afternoon practices with be interrupted by severe weather conditions over the Summer.

We usually delay cancelling practice until close to the time of practice for a few reasons:

  • The foretasted period  for heavy rain and/or thunderstorms changes throughout the day.
  • Summer storms frequently impact a small area while it is sunny in surrounding areas.

Practice will be cancelled, in advance, if we are confident conditions may be unsafe to train.

If there is a threat that the weather will become unsafe we will train close to the home site so we can quickly get into a shelter area.

We will not train during a thunderstorm.
