*Attention 4th grade parents (and all parents): have your children outgrown the books on their shelves at home?  Please consider donating your used books to next year’s Book Nook. Books can be sent to school with your student or dropped off in the office all summer long. Chapter books are in the greatest demand.

*As the school year is coming to an end, please have your student check the lost & found for missing jackets, sweatshirts, lunch boxes, etc.  There are many items waiting to be returned to their home.

* From the Manheim Township Education Foundation:
Thank a Teacher – Recognize a special teacher, coach, or staff member with a donation in any amount to the Manheim Township Educational Foundation.  Recognized faculty will receive a personalized certificate with your name and a thank you message. With donations of $25 or more per teacher, MTEF will donate a book to the designated school’s library in honor of the recognized teacher or staff member! Each dedicated book will feature a plaque with the name of the honored teacher or staff member on the inside front cover.  To participate in this program and help grow our book collection, pick up a form in the office or visit to download the form.  Donations return to MT students in the form of grants and support for educational programs.  Here is the link to the form.
