Kindergarten Information Night – February 6th

On Tuesday, February 6th the Penn Manor School District will sponsor an evening focusing on our youngest learners.  This event will be held at Hambright Elementary School (3000 Charlestown Road, Lancaster, PA  17603).   The snow date will be 2/7/18.

The Preschool Expo will begin at 6:15 PM and preschools will be available to meet with until 7:00 PM.   Penn Manor families will have the opportunity to network with all of our local preschools to learn more about PreK programs in our area.   Enrolling your child in a PreK program helps to build a solid foundation for learning and ease the transition to school.    We hope to see you there!

The Penn Manor Kindergarten Information Night will promptly follow the expo and begin at 7:00 PM.   Penn Manor kindergarten teachers will provide an overview of our kindergarten curriculum and ways you can help to ensure your child is ready to attend kindergarten.   If you have a child who will be five years of age on or before September 1, 2018, they are eligible to enroll in kindergarten.   You won’t want to miss this event.

Parents are encouraged to attend these events.   Children may attend if necessary, but the evening is geared toward adult information regarding kindergarten enrollment.   We hope to see you there.
