Friday, November 15th – Holiday Pottery Painting Payment Due (Pottery Painting Order Form)


*We have several opportunities to make this November a month of giving:

  • Making a special feast is one way families show gratitude for each other. By supporting Nitrauer’s Thanks-GIVING Project, we can make that feast a little easier to provide for our families who find themselves in need.  We will be collecting non-perishable food items in the school through Nov. 14th.  Please direct questions to Missy Weaver or Adrienne Burge
  • Next Friday, November 22nd, go the EXTRA mile for the Manheim Township Educational Foundation.  On that day, MTEF is participating in the Extraordinary Give, Lancaster Country’s Largest Day of Giving.  For 24 hours only, visit ExtraGiveMTEF to make a donation.  Any donation made online that day will be partially matched by the Lancaster County Community Foundation.

*Come cheer on Ms. Ducey, Mr. Illig, & Ms. Shoemaker as they join other MTSD staff & students to take on the Harlem Wizard’s basketball team this Thursday evening, November 14th at 7pm (doors open at 6pm) to raise money for MTHS Mini-THON and the Four Diamonds Fund.  Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door or any MT office.  For more information, contact

*Save the date for this year’s Follet Book Fair which is coming your way after Thanksgiving (Tuesday, December 3rd — Thursday, December 5th)!  Please see Book Fair Help for ways you can volunteer to help!

*Movie Night at Penn Cinema will be December 12th & 17th!  The Nitrauer PTO invites you & your family to join us for Frozen 2.  Movie tickets will be $5 a person!  See Frozen 2 Movie Night for more information and to order your tickets.  Orders, including payment, are due by Friday, November 22nd.  Contact Stephanie Ruth at with any questions.

*The Nitrauer Student Directory is now complete.  If you signed your student up for the directory, you should have received a copy over the weekend.  Contact Jessica Whitley at with any questions.

*Please make sure to have your child’s name somewhere on their jackets and sweaters as many are left on the playgrounds after being outside, and on the OUTSIDE of their lunch boxes, so we can make sure to get your items back where they belong!
