LeTort's Sixth Grade Blog

Let’s stay healthy this year!

To help keep everyone healthy this year, we will need donations of hand sanitizer, hand soap, sanitizing wipes, and tissues.  Please feel free to send them in throughout the first few weeks of school and then again in January.  We usually run out in the middle of the year.  Thank you for considering this!

Hello world!

Welcome to Penn Manor Blogs. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start blogging!



Welcome to First Grade!

I’ve already subscribed some parents to the blog for the 2018-2019 school year if I was able to locate an email address for you, WELCOME!

Letters to students have been mailed and should be arriving early next week!  Our first day of school is on Thursday, August 23.  I’ve enclosed a name tag in my welcome letter for the children to wear on the first day of school.  I’ll be wearing a matching one so we can easily recognize one another on the first day of school.

Students are welcome to bring a small stuffed animal that fits into their back pack on the first day of school.  It’s always nice to have a friend with you!

It is helpful to send your child to school with a full sized back pack and the following supplies:

4 glue sticks

1 full sized pencil box (not a pencil bag)

Expo markers (any color or thickness is fine)

Crayons (16 count max)

2  bar erasers

students may bring markers or colored pencils if they choose to do so

I have plenty of pencils, scissors,  hi-liters, and folders that I’ll be sharing with the class.  Donations of tissues and hand sanitizer are always welcome.

Here’s the menu for the first day of school:

A lunch – pasta with sauce

B lunch – egg mccomet

C lunch -PB &J

D lunch – yogurt and string cheese.

Students may of course pack their lunch, too!  Students who are buying lunch may bring their money to school in a ziplock back.  Place his/her first and last name on the bag along with 1-T.  This will help us to get the money into your student’s account easily.  You may also place money in your child’s lunch account by going to

We’ll have four specials during the first half of the year.  This year our schedule looks like this:

A -Applied Engineering

B- Music

C – Phys. Ed (Please send students to school wearing sneakers)

D – Art

We’ll rotate through the specials each week.  Sometimes we’ll have the same special two times in one week.

Thursday, 8/23 – Applied Engineering

Friday, 8/24- Music

Monday, 8/27 – Phys. Ed

Tuesday, 8/28 – Art

Wednesday, 8/29 – Applied Engineering

You’re invited to join us in our classroom for a drop in from 4-6 PM.  Come see your child’s classroom and stop in to say hello!

Thursday, 8/30 – Music

Today is a 1:30 early dismissal

Friday, 8/31 – No School

Monday, 9/3 – No School

Tuesday, 9/4 – Send ’em back to school!  Our special will be Phys. Ed.

I’m looking forward to a great school year!

Ms. Lutz's Learners and Leaders

Welcome Back!

Dear Hambright Leaders,

Welcome to fifth grade! I am SO excited to begin the 2018-2019 school year. I have been thinking about our new classroom family all summer and have been planning lots of fun activities for the year. I hope you will love 5th grade!

This summer I was fortunate to have several adventures. Possibly the most exciting one was my trip to Iceland, which is a large, volcanic island near the Arctic Circle. I was able to experience many of the earth changes that we’ll be studying in science this year; I walked between two divergent continental plates (you’ll learn what this is!), hiked on the slopes of volcanoes and touched glaciers. I wish I could take you all on a field trip to Iceland, but since that probably would be too expensive I’ll just have to share my stories instead.

Since I’ve been home, the fifth grade teaching team and I have been busy preparing for the start of school. I hope you like your new classroom!

I can’t wait to see you all soon. Enjoy the rest of the summer and get ready for a great school year!

Alternate plan in case of inclement weather

Hello Cross Country Families!

Since I will be at an In-Service leading up to practice, I wanted to make sure you knew we will plan practice the same as yesterday. I am hopeful we’ll have just as nice an afternoon today, but if it does start to storm, I will plan to take the team inside for practice.

All ninth graders are required to fill out a Drug Consent Form (also on both of these sites). Please note that the Drug Consent Form is voluntary for 7th and 8th graders.

Hello Cross Country Families!

Yesterday we wrapped up our voluntary summer workouts and are moving ahead to our official season. How exciting to have had 23 individuals join me at one time or another!

I sent out an earlier post with details about our pre-season schedule beginning on Monday, August 13th. Remember your PIAA Physicals! If you have not yet scheduled a physical, you may want to consider a facility like Med Express or Urgent Care so that your child can participate on the first day.

Important notes:

Students who wear any type of medical apparatus: Please bring a doctor’s note  that I will give to our Athletic Director, who will then submit this to the PIAA.

Students who bring inhalers or other medications to school: Please notify your school nurse. If these are needed before, during, or after practice hours, the nurse will then coordinate how and when it is dispensed with our Athletic Trainer.

I also invite you to view the Penn Manor Athletics page for news, updates, and other important information at I will be adding information to the Cross Country link over the next few weeks.

See you on Monday!

The First Day of School

The First Day of School by Judith Viorst

Will they let me go when I need to go to the bathroom?

And what if I get lost on my way back to class?

And what if the other kids are a hundred, a thousand times smarter than I am?

And what if we have a spelling test, or a reading test, or an anything test, and I’m the only person who doesn’t pass?

And what if my teacher decides she doesn’t like me?

And what if, all of a sudden a tooth gets loose?

And what if I can’t find lunch, or I sit on my lunch, or

I (oops!) drop my lunch someplace like the toilet?

Will they let me starve or will somebody lend me a sandwich?

A cookie?  A cracker?  An apple?  Some juice?

And what if they say, “Do this,” and I don’t understand them?

And what if there’s teams and nobody picks me to play?

And what if I took off my sneakers, and also my socks,

and my jeans and my sweatshirt and T-shirt,

And started the first day of school on the second day?

Welcome to First Grade!

I hope everyone had an enjoyable and relaxing summer.  After spending the summer outside playing with my sons, Aidan and Alexander, I am looking forward to another wonderful school year.  This letter will provide you with some basic information about our classroom and our schedule.

We will be welcoming a Millersville University student to our classroom, Ms.  Denny.  She will be spending the entire year with us learning to be a teacher.

Our lunch time every day is 12:32-1:12.  Your child may bring a water bottle and snack for the morning.

Our specials rotate on a 4 day cycle, A, B, C, and D.

On Mondays, I will send home a copy of the spelling and sight words for the week.  Our spelling tests will be on Fridays.

It would be beneficial for your child to have a pencil box to keep inside his/her desk.  This box can be filled with a pack of crayons, scissors, expo markers, a glue stick, and pencils.  This will give your child the supplies he/she will need for the school day.

To keep our room clean, it would be great if your child could bring in a box of clorox wipes or hand sanitizer.  I appreciate your help in keeping our room a germ free zone!

Things your child needs for the first day of school, Thursday, August 23.

  1. Pencil box filled with supplies
  2. Back Pack

  4. Water bottle

Enjoy the rest of summer!

I am so excited to be your child’s teacher this school year! I am looking forward to meeting you all as well!

As you can see my blog is a work in progress, to say the least. Haha. I just ask for your patience as I get it up and running. My goal is for this to be a place for you to access important information and updates about what we are doing in the classroom. Communication is so important, so please don’t hesitate to contact me. Thanks in advance for your support!

The Peart Post

Welcome to Second Grade!

Welcome to the Peart Post!

If you are reading this, you have been added to our classroom Blog!  I send out weekly updates, reminders, photos of the kids and our projects. There are MANY links to helpful school information at the top as well as down the right side.  Check them out! The spelling and vocabulary links will be very helpful as the year goes on. You can opt of these updates anytime …or add more emails! (home, work, grandma!)

Supplies: Letters should be arriving at your homes with details about our start of school. Here is the list of supplies from that letter for your back to school shopping! I will provide each student with basic school supplies: crayons, scissors and a special homework folder.

Students will each need to bring a 5×7 or bigger pencil box (or supplies bag); a standard single subject ringed or bound LINED notebook (any design on cover); extra pencils; and glue sticks. 

Students may also bring their own colored pencils (VERY popular in second grade), erasers, dry erase markers, dry eraser, and/or hand sanitizer if they wish. Water bottles are great to send along too. Students can keep them in their cubby for getting drinks throughout the day. Please do not send in permanent markers (they bleed through papers and stain the desks) or 3 ring binders (too bulky).

Again, I will be providing you with a special homework folder that will be taken home nightly so it can be signed by the parent/guardian. On the first day there will be additional information and papers that will be sent home that will need to be read, signed and returned.

Enjoy the rest of your summer.
