Nitrauer News — April 8th

This Week at Nitrauer:

Wednesday, April 10th – Book Nook

Thursday, April 11th – Friendly’s FUNraiser Night (April Friendlys Flier)


*Thank you to Stacey Hornberger for coordinating Saturday’s Nitrauer PTO skating party!  It was great to have so many families enjoying their time at the Overlook Skating Rink!

*The final Book Nook for this school year will be this coming Wednesday, April 10th.  Please have your child bring small change for 1 or 2 books.  Books sell for $0.25 soft cover and $0.50 hard cover.  Each child can purchase no more than 2 books.  It’s a great opportunity for them to learn spending limitations and have fun shopping for something that has value for themselves.  Often we find they even shop for siblings.
*Please keep bringing us your wonderful used books.  The collection gets more exciting every time thanks to your generous donations of k-4 gently used books.
*Volunteers with clearances, the time will be 9-12:30.  Please email Laura McCamant at  or Amanda Willey at if you would like to help out.

*Friendly’s is hosting another Fundraising Night for the Nitrauer PTO on Thursday, April 11th from 5-8 pm. During this time 10% of all sales will be donated to our PTO.  See April Friendlys Flier for more information.

*Continuing through May 1st, Nitrauer is participating in a penny challenge to help Ponderosa Elementary School in Paradise, CA which was destroyed by the wildfires.  Please Penny Drive – Ponderosa Elementary School  for more information.

*Township Cares, a OneTownship Community Event is sponsoring a spring cleaning collection to assist families in Manheim Township.  Cleaning supplies will be collected through Wednesday, April 24th.  See TOWNSHIP CARES Spring 2019 for more details as well as specific items being collected.

*The Nitrauer PTO invites you and your family to join us for Movie Night at Penn Cinema on May 1st or 8th!  We will be watching Wonder Park.  A movie that encourages imagination to come alive!  Movie tickets are just $5 a person! More details to follow next week.

*Save Friday, May 17th from 5-8pm for FUN FEST 2019!  There will be many volunteer needs to make Fun Fest a success.  If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Brenna Colosi at

*PSSA Testing begins at Nitrauer later this month.  Your help at home is appreciated during this time (and always), in being sure your child is getting appropriate rest during these testing windows.  Snacks will be provided for 3rd and 4th graders on PSSA test days.  Attendance and getting to school on time is important during this testing period as testing begins promptly at 9:15am.
