Former HS principal shares her "Stack of Records with Manor 8th graders

September 28, 2023

Dr. Jan Mindish, former Penn Manor High School principal and current president of the Penn Manor Education Foundation, spent the day in Mr. Telesco's Eighth Grade English classroom to share her "Stack of Records" (who has shaped her), her experiences, and her wisdom in interview fashion. Through Dr. Mindish's superb storytelling, students deepened their appreciation of older generations and learned how to conduct an interview--a skill they'll use sometime this year when they interview someone fifty years old or older. 

Students go "live" each day at Manor Middle

September 11, 2023

A select group of Manor Middle School eighth-graders start their day by providing their peers with live-streamed announcements each morning.  The students are led by Mr. Tom Reustle, a 7th grade social studies teacher in the building.  Mr. Reustle spends the first few weeks of school helping students learn how to execute the various roles in the TV studio.  The students learn how to act as the anchors, handle transitions, run the teleprompter, and support in classrooms that have a substitute for the day.  The students become more independent and lend more of their creativity as the year goes on.
