*Thank you very much to the all parents who came out and helped us paint some of our “Dorothy in Wonderland” landscape components Wednesday.  They are looking amazing.  Next week, we “plan” to finish up with painting and start putting up some of the set/seeing what we need to add.  If there are any parents who are interested in helping with this, we meet again Wednesday in the art room and will work thru the day.  Please text or call Laura McCamant at (717) 856-6908 if you want to join or have questions.

*Hopefully, everyone has been continuing to clip and collect Box Tops. Please turn them in anytime! Our second Box Top collection is Friday, February 9th. If you have any questions, you may refer to for Box Top links and/or contact Allison McCarthy, box top coordinator, at

*The Art Show & Project Fair are returning to Nitrauer Elementary on Thursday, March 15 from 7 – 8pm.

  • A project can be any type of display that shows what you have learned. You can work by yourself, with a friend or a group of friends.  You may choose from many subjects such as cultural topics, history, math, art, science, health, cooking, sports, and hobbies. Check your library and computer websites for great ideas.
  • Artwork can be a piece of pottery, a photograph, a sculpture, block design, pastel, or pencil sketch.  All are encouraged to participate. Artwork can be from school or home. Please one entry per student.
  • Look for the registration notice next week. You can sign-up online (art show: Art Show 2018 Sign Up; project fair: Project Fair 2018 Sign Up) or get a paper sign up from the school office.

*Book Nook donations are always welcomed!  Our highest need continues to be chapter books.  Book contributions can be dropped off in the book box located in the school office.  The next Book Nook will be February 21st.   See 2017-18 Book Nook for more information regarding the Book Nook.

*Remember, school will now be in session on Monday, February, 19th (due to the January 5th snow day).  Additionally, the snow make-up date for our school closing this past Wednesday, January 17th will be Tuesday, April 3rd.
