Parents of children entering kindergarten in the Penn Manor School District for the 2011-2012 school year are invited to an informational meeting at Manor Middle School on Tuesday, February 8, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. (inclement weather date is February 9.) Parents will learn about the kindergarten curriculum and what parents can do to prepare their child for kindergarten. Parents will receive a packet of materials necessary for registration. After the presentation, there will be a breakout session with elementary principals and kindergarten teachers who will help to answer specific parent questions. This Kindergarten Information Night is designed for parents.
Prior to the meeting, beginning at 6:30 p.m., local preschools will host a Preschool Expo. They will have informational booths set up in the lobby of Manor Middle School to acquaint parents with all the opportunities available for younger children to prepare for kindergarten.
Formal kindergarten registration will be held at each of the district elementary schools in early March (see below). Children must be five years old on or before September 1, 2011 to enter kindergarten for the 2011-2012 school year. Parents are encouraged to register at the school closest or most convenient to their home. However, registration at a certain elementary school does not constitute assignment to that school.
If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Jen Sugra, Principal of Pequea Elementary and Kindergarten Coordinator, at (717) 464-3831.
