Penn Manor Kindergarten/Preschool Information Night February 5
On Tuesday, February 5, 2019, Penn Manor School District will sponsor a Kindergarten Information Night and Preschool Expo at Hambright Elementary School (3000 Charlestown Road, Lancaster 17603). The snow date is February 6.
Preschool Expo: Beginning at 6:15 p.m., Penn Manor families will have the opportunity to network with representatives of local preschools to learn about pre-K options in our area. Enrolling your child in a pre-K program helps build a solid foundation for learning and eases the transition to kindergarten.
Kindergarten Information Night: At 7 p.m., our Penn Manor kindergarten teachers will provide an overview of our curriculum and explain how you can help ensure that your child is ready to attend kindergarten. If you have a child who will be 5 years old on or before September 1, 2019, he/she is eligible to enroll in kindergarten.
Online registration opens January 7, 2019.
Parents may attend one or both events. Registration is NOT required, and child care will not be provided.
