April 28 through May 2 Week-At-A-Glance

Pequea Families,

There are many exciting events this week. Our chorus members have a concert at the high school on Thursday and our week culminates with the Pequea Talent Show on Friday. We also want to wish our fourth grade students well as they take the PSSA Science assessments this week.


Cammy Bley (cello) and Julie Raugh (violin) were selected by Mrs. Hamer to represent our school district along with six other Penn Manor elementary school string players in the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association (PMEA) District 7 Youth String Fest on Saturday, April 12, at Lower Dauphin High School.   Students rehearsed all day long and performed a concert at 3:00pm for several hundred guests.  Congratulations, Cammy & Julie, for being selected for this honor.

The PTO is looking for someone to DJ/emcee the Backyard BBQ on Friday, May 23. Please  contact Amanda Kneisley at ajkneisley@gmail.com for more information.

The PTO is also extending the Discount Hersheypark ticket deal. Forms are available in the office or you can download one from our filing cabinet page.
