Miller's Memo

Last Day of School

Dear 2nd Grade Parents/ Guardians,

     I typically send out this following letter on the last day of school.This year was quite different, because we did not finish the year together physically. However, they will always be in my hearts.

I give you back your child; the same child you confidently entrusted to my care last fall. I give you your child back pounds heavier, inches taller, months wiser, more responsible, and more mature than before. Although your child would have attained this growth in spite of me, it has been my happy privilege to watch this personality unfold day by day and marvel at this splendid miracle of development. I have thrilled at each new achievement, each new success, and each new expansion of self. I give your child back reluctantly; for having spent nine months together in the narrow confines of a classroom, we have grown close. We have become a part of each other, and we shall always retain a little of the other.

     We have lived, loved, laughed, played, studied, learned, and enriched our lives together this year. I wish it could go on indefinitely, but I must give your child back to you. Take care of your child, for your child is precious.

Remember that I shall always be interested in your child and in your child’s destiny…wherever your child goes, whatever your child does, and whoever your child becomes. Your child’s joys and sorrows I’ll be happy to share. Please call on me if there is anything further I can ever do for you, for I will always remember both you and your child.

With much love,

Mrs. Miller

Thank you for a fabulous year!

I’ve worked with your flower

And helped it to grow.

I’m returning it now,

But I want you to know.

This flower is precious

As dear as can be.

Love, take care of it.

 And you will see

A bright new bloom

with everyday.

It grew and blossomed

In such a wonderful way.

In August, just a bud

then January a bloom.

Now a lovely blossom

I’m returning to you.

Remember this flower,

As dear as can be.

Though rightfully yours,

Part will always be with me. (author unknown)

6th Grade Celebration

Our 6th grade celebration is live. While we were unable to do a traditional graduation ceremony for our 6th graders, we wanted to make our online celebration as close to what would have normally taken place. As such, you will see a message from Dr. Cox, Mrs. Kinderwater and myself. Additionally, I’ve put together a video which lets the students take a trip down memory lane as they see their classmates grow before their very eyes. Finally, the Eshleman family wanted to celebrate our 6th graders so there is a final video of shoutouts from our faculty and staff. Thank you for a great year. Have a restful and relaxing summer.

End of the year videos

Poem– I wasn’t sure if there was enough time to read it. This is not an original but I agree with the sentiment.

Each student’s items that were in school have been gathered and placed in bags. The last two books from our sponsors have also been placed in the bags. The bags will be returned to you. The exact time and manner has not been decided.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that may come up over the summer. I do check email over the summer but it is much less frequent so, my response may take a couple of weeks.

I hope to see you all in the coming years and I wish you the very best in all that you do.

Penn Manor School District

374 seniors receive diplomas in virtual commencement ceremony

Members of the Penn Manor Class of 2020 received their diplomas in a virtual commencement ceremony that was broadcast live May 28 and is now available for viewing.

The video presentation includes a slideshow of the graduates listing their future plans, the formal ceremony, and shout-outs to teachers, family and friends. You can view the videos here.

High school principal Baron Jones, in his video address to the audience, celebrated the many accomplishments of the 374 graduates, including state and national recognition in academics, technology, agriculture, the performing arts and athletics.

He pointed out that about 74 percent of graduates plan to further their studies, and 21 graduates will enter the military. Members of the Class of 2020 received 156 local scholarships and awards totaling nearly $100,000, in addition to outside scholarships.

Four students addressed the audience, including valedictorian Ryan Dang, class president Tim Hermansen, Hannah Smith and Isaac Leshok. The salutatorian was Alex Roth.

During the ceremony, Kaden Peart was named Student of the Year, as selected by the faculty.

The ceremony was the first one for Mr. Jones, who took the reins as principal over the summer. It also was the first virtual commencement in Penn Manor’s history.

Thanks to the efforts of one of the graduates, Alex Detter, photos of every senior who participated in the ceremony are available for download here.

Congratulations to members of the Class of 2020, and best wishes as you embark on the next chapter of your lives!

Have a wonderful summer 5th graders!

Dear Fifth Graders,

I just want to say what an honor it was to be your teacher this year. Our year together was not supposed to end the way it did however I am so proud of each and every one of you because you showed perseverance and resilience through this time. You missed out on a field trip, the 5th grade spelling bee, olympic day, and so many memories we were all supposed to have together. However, instead of focusing on what we lost lets focus on something else. What did you gain from this experience? Time with your family?Time creating memories with your siblings, pets, parents? More time. Especially more time at home. This summer you will have more time and I want you all to take advantage of that time you have. Set a goal. Start a new hobby. Practice something you never had time to do before. We can look at the past few months as a loss of time. Or we can look at it as a gift. Look at the next few weeks of summer as a gift. Enjoy it. Embrace it. Learn from it. And Don’t worry- I will see you next year. Each and every one of you. And I will always be your teacher. Even though you won’t physically be in my classroom or have a clip on my chart or a punch card with your name on it. I will always be your teacher. Come visit me next year. Be my student. Let me help you in any way I can next year.  Always. I love you all and I have been missing you all a lot. Please email me this summer, send me pictures of what you are doing with your time. You are all ready to be 6th graders and I can’t wait to watch you grow next school year. And always remember you can do hard things.

Parents- thank you for being such a support system for your children and me through this all. Please enjoy the summer as well!

See you next year friends 🙂

We wish you the best summer! Thank you all for doing your best this entire school year but definitely over the last few months. This is obviously not how we wanted the year to end, but we are so proud of all of the fifth graders for rising up to the challenge and doing their best!

We also want to say a HUGE thank you to each and every parent! You were thrown into a role that you didn’t ask for, and we appreciate everything you have done for these amazing kiddos to help them find success with online learning!

Now, enjoy our signature last day of school WAVE (just a little different than you are used to)!

I am so sorry we had to end our school year this way. I loved being your first grade teacher and loved getting to know each and every one of you. I hope you enjoyed meeting your second grade teachers this morning. Have a wonderful and safe summer. I look forward to seeing you again as we hopefully begin the new school year together.

End-of-the-year videos and a wave before summer!

We shared A LOT of smiles throughout the year in kindergarten! I put all of our photos into a video for each class. These are the videos I shared at our Google Meets yesterday. If you were unable to join us, you’ll want to check out the video for your child’s class. Enjoy seeing all of those adorable smiles! 🙂

AM class video:

PM class video:

On the last day of school, the staff usually stands out front and does “the wave” as the buses pull away and the students celebrate their first moments of summer vacation. Since we are not able to do that in person this year, here’s a virtual wave (below) from Conestoga Elementary. Have a SUPER-TERRIFIC SUMMER! We can’t wait to see you in August!

The wave!!!! Watch the teachers do our traditional wave as the buses leave on the last day of school- this year it’s a virtual wave! Click here to watch.

Also, I am reading aloud a book I always save for the last day of school- Oh, the Places You’ll Go! by Dr. Seuss. Click here to listen to the last story of the year.

I just had to put this picture in of Maya and her new dog…he is ADORABLE!!!!

This is a very different goodbye I will be saying to this class. I usually have fun games, prizes, and lots of hugs for everyone on the last day. I want you all to know how much I enjoyed teaching you this year and how very special you are. This year I have seen every single one of you grow with your learning and with your maturity.

  1. You now can read with great stamina for up to 30 minutes! (Remember when we stopped after only 5 minutes.) You also know many different genres and know which style you enjoy the most.
  2. You now can add and subtract triple digit numbers, tell time on an analog clock, and solve two step word problems! (Remember when we only used single digit numbers to add and subtract.)
  3. You now can write paragraphs, use bigger words, and use a creative hook with a good ending . (Remember when you only wrote 1 or 2 sentences and our last project was the diary of an animal with many pages!)
  4. You now understand how the Native Americans lived and what they used in nature to survive. You know about the sun’s energy and how it powers most of what we need. You know many of our national symbols and what they mean to our country. You know how matter can change form and why it does that. You know the sun is the center of our solar system and we have 8 planets that revolve around the sun.
  5. You know how to be kind, caring, helpful, patient, understanding, and to be fair.

I am so proud of this class and you have taught me so much this year too. This was one of the best classes I have taught in the past 20 years because we all got along so well together. I will miss having fun with you and getting silly together. Please come back to see me when we are in the building again. Have a fun, safe, and adventurous summer!

Penn Manor School District

Penn Manor to keep parents updated on status of 2020-2021 school year

Penn Manor superintendent Mike Leichliter sent out an email this morning explaining how we will keep parents updated on what the 2020-2021 school year might look like. Here is the text of the letter:

Dear Penn Manor Families,

Today marks the end of the 2019-2020 school year, which presented more challenges than any year I can recall in my 29 years in public education. When Governor Wolf ordered all schools to close, effective March 16, it forced us to quickly move to an online platform to ensure the continuity of learning for all our students. I’d like to personally thank parents for the encouragement, patience, and grace you have exhibited in helping your child adapt to this new learning environment during very challenging circumstances.

As we look toward next school year, I want to keep you updated on plans to return students to our schools in as safe a manner as possible. The 2020-2021 school year is scheduled to begin on August 31, and while we don’t know exactly what that will look like, we have mapped out three possibilities: a full return of all students to school buildings, a hybrid onsite/online schedule with reduced building occupancy, and a full virtual schedule. We believe this last option is the least desirable of the three. 

There are still many unknowns. We are awaiting definitive guidance from the Pennsylvania Departments of both Health and Education on the specific recommendations for keeping students and adults safe that will impact our plans. We hope that there will be some local decision-making permitted so that we can tailor the return to school to meet the unique needs of Penn Manor. 

To guide our decision-making, we have assembled a planning group that includes our assistant director of student support services, the school physician, school nurses, the transportation and food services directors, and others to help plan a return to school that focuses on safety for students, faculty, and staff members.

To keep you informed, we will provide periodic updates throughout the summer as we learn more specifics about what the 2020-2021 school year will look like. You can expect to receive an update via email (also posted on the district website) on June 30, July 20, and August 3. If additional information comes to light that should be shared with families, we will provide more updates through the same methods. We are eager to share these details as soon as we have more clarity on the new school year.

Thank you again for all of your support during these challenging days. It is a privilege to work in Penn Manor with wonderful students, staff and families. We wish you the best for a safe and restful summer.

Sincerely,

Michael G. Leichliter, Ed.D.

IT’S THE LAST DAY OF SCHOOL!

THE CONESTOGA WAVE!!!!!!! At Conestoga on the last day of school it is the tradition for all the teachers and staff to say goodbye to students on busses by doing the wave! Here is this year’s version of the wave!

Click HERE for the Conestoga WAVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you, wonderful students, for an amazing year of teaching you! I cannot express how deeply sorry I am that we could not finish the year together within our school walls.

I am so proud of all of you and your many, many accomplishments this year. Your growth in your academics and overall maturity is simply astounding!

We went from barely being able to read silently for 5 minutes to reading silently for 30 or more minutes – with you all begging for more time! You deepened your understanding of genre and you now understand the theme of a story. You are now reading more challenging books than when you entered our second grade room.

In writing, you all found your voice and style and gave your writing personality and flair. Again, at the beginning of the year you wrote for a few short minutes, but by March you were writing for much longer periods of time and anxious to write even more! You produced such detailed and well organized pieces and you had some fun exploring how to write interesting beginnings and endings.

In math you went from basic addition and subtraction facts to adding and subtracting three and even four digit numbers with regrouping! WOW! You can now read time from an analog clock and count money like a banker! WHOA!

You learned the deep importance of nature to the Native Americans and how ingeniously they used nature to provide food, shelter and clothing. You learned to identify the continents and oceans. You learned about all the national symbols and their importance to our country. You learned about solid, liquid and gas.

Most of all I love how you grew and matured into such wonderfully kind little humans! This class has been a joy and pleasure to teach. Your kindness and patience with each other was astounding. You learned to accept and appreciate each other’s differences. You learned from each other. Your friendships blossomed. We became like family.

Second grade, thank you for a wonderful, amazing year. Thank you for all the laughs and silly moments. Thank you for all the times you blew me away with what you have learned! You are the reason I became a teacher. I adore each and every one of you. I have missed you greatly this last marking period. PLEASE stop in to see me next year!

Have a wonderful and safe summer and good luck to you all in third grade!

I wanted to let you know a few things.

1.  Yearbook information can be found on the Hambright blog.

3. Our last class meeting is tomorrow at 2:00.  First, I plan to show the Virtual video, which will contain the biographical information you (your student) submitted, pictures from the year, and the Class Awards that your classmates chose for you.  Then I  plan to present each student with a personal award from me.  I will also mail a copy of the award to you. Finally, I will tell you who will be in your class next year.
