Teachers ready classrooms for Monday’s start of new school year

Teachers across Penn Manor this week have been preparing their classrooms for the 2013-14 school year, which begins Monday. The preparations have been bittersweet for teachers at Hambright Elementary, which is slated to close for good at the end of the school year. While wistful about the final year in their building, teachers are looking forward to the move next fall to the new Hambright, being built next to Manor Middle School. All Penn Manor students are reminded to report to their designated bus stops 10 minutes early Monday. Large bags or instruments will not be permitted on buses unless they can fit on students’ laps.
