  • THANK YOU! Enjoy Summer!

    Posted by Ron Swantner on 5/28/2024 3:30:00 PM

    They always say the days go slow but the years go fast; it is important to slow down and make sure to give thanks to those who make a great difference in your life. At LPC, our parents thanked teachers and even helped at an end of year picnic for all LIC and LPC staff on the last student day. Our teachers and staff give thanks to our volunteers and all parents for your partnership with the school all year. Our PTO continues to allow our students extra opportunities not always realized in other schools, cities, and states. THANK YOU to our PTO for your creative thinking to provide additional funds and opportunities to benefit our entire Landisville School Community.

    Mike Sebergandio, Alicia Brumbach, Anna Reiff, Julia Ressler and Danielle Cardone have completed their terms as Board Members on the PTO. THANK YOU to each of them for an outstanding job in helping us navigate post-covid partnerships that would benefit our students and schools. As we look to August, the PTO welcomes new Board Members: Nick Katherina, Manny Luciano, Molly Rogers, Stacy Lauter, Michelle Reich and Riley Hughes.

    Every parent, teacher and staff member is part of our PTO. Thank you ALL for doing whatever it takes to help our schools grow stronger to best benefit our Landisville school community. We look forward to seeing everyone at our Sneak A Peek in August to give your child(ren) an opportunity to feel more comfortable starting the new year as they meet their new teacher and see their new classroom. We will also have an Open House night prior to Labor Day where we will welcome new Board Members, meet new staff, and get acclimated to your children’s new teachers.

    Have a super summer!

  • Celebrations

    Posted by Ron Swantner on 5/22/2024 7:30:00 AM

    Many of our Bucket Filling students got a chance to throw water balloons and toss water from buckets at staff members during our end of year PBIS Celebration. Each day this week, different grade levels will have the opportunity to have All Star students participate in the fun. As we come to the end of the 2023-24 school year, we want to remind all families to celebrate with your kids this summer through family game nights and fun activities after they read during the week, write to friends, family, or in journals, and practice some math. Focusing on your child’s strengths and celebrating together with them is just as necessary as exercising our brains (even over summer break).

  • Cultural Day at LPC

    Posted by Ron Swantner on 5/21/2024 4:30:00 PM

    On Friday, May 17, second grade students and teachers enjoyed a Cultural Day to complement their Social Studies curriculum. A student in Mrs.

     Statler's classroom had her parents and uncle present about Vietnam. One of Miss Campbell's students' had his mother, grandmother, and sister share about India. Each family shared interesting facts about their country. Second grade students were able to learn about the food, dress, decorations, celebrations, and many unique features about each country. They were also able to see and hold artifacts from Vietnam and India.

    After the informative presentations, two of our third-grade students, one from Mrs. Brenner's classroom and one from Mrs. Bush's class, performed an Indian dance to authentic Indian music. The girls did a great job dancing together for our students and then answering questions afterward. We appreciate the girls sharing their dancing talents and our two LPC families sharing about their home countries and cultures in an interesting and engaging way.

  • 1st Grade Field Day Wednesday - HELP NEEDED!

    Posted by Ron Swantner on 5/21/2024 7:00:00 AM

    The end of the year is quickly approaching and we anticipate this last week will fly by. Thanks in advance to ALL of our volunteers all year long. Monday will be a special Camp Day, Space Day and Carnival Day for several classes and grade levels. Tuesday and Wednesday will be special water balloon days for some of our Bucket Filling All Stars at LPC all year long. Thursday will be a 1:30 Early Dismissal and Friday will be the last day of school with a 1:00 Early Dismissal. We are also hopeful we can squeeze in First Grade’s Field Day on Wednesday morning, from 9:15-11:30 on the quad. Mr. Dunk is seeking energetic and willing volunteers to assist with this alternate Field Day. Thanks in advance if you can make this work to help our first graders have a memorable last week.

    iPads and chargers are being collected from students currently in grades K, 3, 6, 9, and 12. These iPads are being replaced over the summer and must be turned in. If you have a student in one of these grades, please know that these devices and chargers are being collected throughout this week. Apple iPads, charging blocks, charging cables and iPad cases in these grade levels must be turned in. (Students in ESY or Summer School do NOT need to turn in their iPad until the program is completed in August.)

    Grade 9 Collection: Wednesday, May 22 through Friday, May 24 – HHS Commons and PAC Lobby

    Grades 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, and 11

    Students in these grade levels have the option to turn in their iPad or keep it at home for use this summer. The district will collect iPads from students who wish to turn them in for summer storage this week (May 22-May 24). Chargers should remain at home for use next school year and will NOT be collected if a student is turning in their iPad for the summer. Students who turn in the iPad for the summer will receive the iPad in their new homeroom at the start of the 2024-2025 school year.

    Please contact the Technology Office at 717-898-5596 for any iPad related questions over the summer.

  • Rain, Rain, Go Away

    Posted by Ron Swantner on 5/15/2024 12:30:00 PM

    Fortunately, we have been able to get through half of our Field Week activities. Unfortunately, first grade required a date/time change and third grade’s Field Day experience tomorrow is in question due to inclement weather and safety concerns. Kindergarten had a beautiful Monday and second grade was able to enjoy Tuesday morning with students cooperatively engaging in fun, physical activity.

    We will make a decision about Thursday’s Third Grade Field Trip soon, and we have moved First Grade’s Field Day experience to Wednesday morning, May 22, from 9:15-11:30 on the quad.

    We look forward to seeing you for Field day later this week or next week!

     ***Side note – the last PTO meeting for the school year will be held this evening at LIC in the LGI at 6PM.
