MU/PM Study Buddy Program Rolls Over into Summer

This spring Penn Manor & Millersville University began a Study Buddy Program. Millersville students & Penn Manor families have expressed interest in continuing this program over the summer. GREAT NEWS! More families now have the opportunity to become part of the program.

While there will not be the traditional, school year academics, Millersville buddies are happy to help with specific areas of educational need.  For example: multiplication tables, spelling words, reading/writing, even telling time, are skills we can continue to work on throughout the summer.  In lieu of the academic piece during the school year, are there any additional subjects, hobbies, and/or extracurriculars that you would like the Buddies to (remotely) meet about?  For example: maybe a specific sport, type of art, music, video games, etc.

Click here to complete the form which will get you matched with a Millersville Study Buddy. Additional specifics can be found on the form.

Did you see…this program was featured in the May 20th edition of the Merchandiser/Advertiser!  The article was titled, “MU Supports PM’s Transition to Online Learning.”  Millersville students strive to share compassion and contribute to public mission while we all navigate these challenging times.

Goodbye and Hello

As the 2019-2020 school year draws to a close, we have two Central Manor teachers who are retiring. Our librarian, Mrs. Kathy Ashworth and fifth grade teacher, Mrs. Carol Purzycki are both retiring. We want to thank them both for so many wonderful years of service to the Central Manor community. We also say goodbye to Miss Anna Raneiri, our Special Education teacher, who is relocating to Virginia.

In the fall, we welcome Mrs. Grace Sanna, as our new librarian. Mrs. Sanna comes to us from 2nd grade at Pequea Elementary. Also, for 4th grade, we welcome Mr. Trent Soto. Mr. Soto recently completed his student teaching in Penn Manor and graduated from Millersville University. We also welcome Ms. Lacey Winder to our 5th grade team. Ms. Winder comes to us from Selinsgrove, PA with twelve years of elementary teaching experience.

Thank you to Mrs. Ashworth and Mrs. Purzycki for all they have done! We give a big WELCOME to Mrs. Sanna, Mr. Soto, and Ms. Winder!

A Few End of Year Reminders

Due to the COVID-19, we will not be collecting laptops this spring. Students will bring his/her laptop to school on the first day back. Please also be mindful of the computer bag and charger as well.

**Sixth grade students** will bring laptops to their respective middle school. Questions or concerns can be directed to Brian Malek at:

If you are planning on withdrawing from the Penn Manor School District, please reach out to our school secretary, Mrs. Megan Smith at email: All school materials such as school laptops, textbooks, and library books should be returned before the official school withdrawal. The CM Office will work with withdrawing families on a time that works for the dropping off of items.

There is a drop off bin for library books outside of the main entrance. Other school items can be placed in the bin (calculators, reading anthology, etc.) Please label with student name and place in a sealed bag if possible).

Unfortunately, we are still waiting on school yearbooks from the company. We continue to check back frequently. When yearbooks are received, we may try to organize an optional distribution plan. Rest assured, if you cannot pick up your child’s ordered yearbook, we will keep it safe at CM until the fall.

One final friendly reminder – there is NO SCHOOL for Monday, May 25th in observance of Memorial Day.
