Lunch and Learn schedule posted for Penn Manor Elementary Schools

Do you have a child between the ages of 3-5?  We invite you to join us at our monthly Preschool Lunch and Learn.  These events are hosted at every elementary school.   Each event showcases a new book, along with a craft and lunch.   It is a great way to spend an hour with your child and the perfect way to transition your child to elementary school.    All of our elementary schools host this event over the lunch hour, but times vary, so you will need to check your local elementary school for details and you will need to RSVP for this event.

Please consider attending.   We love hosting future comets in our schools. Click on the link below to view the schedule.
