  • Fill a Bucket with Warmth

    Posted by Mike Resh on 11/30/2022 9:00:00 AM

    Dear Landisville Families,

    Through the value of being a “Bucket Filler,” we will be promoting the idea of helping others in our school and community during the entire 2022-2023 school year.  During the month of December, LPC will be attempting to “Fill other’s Buckets,” this time with warmth.  Please consider donating any gently used or new winter clothing as part of our “Fill a Bucket with Warmth” project.  Items collected will then be donated to the Hempfield SD Clothing Bank as well as be shared between LPC/LIC to have on hand for our own students in need during the upcoming winter months. 

    Please help us with continuing to promote the idea of “Being a Bucket Filler” and helping others during the cold, winter months by offering any contributions you may be able to make in the upcoming weeks. Thank you for all of your support in helping LPC to become a Bucket Filling School! Items can be placed in bins in our front lobby. 

    Should you have any questions, please contact Mr. Resh at LPC (717)898-5519 or mike_resh@hempfieldsd.org. Thank you in advance to those of you who are able to assist with this very important project.  LPC appreciates your effort in helping others in the Hempfield Community.

    Items Most requested:

    • School-aged students:
      • Coats/Jackets
      • Socks
      • Thermal Wear (undershirts/pants)

  • Reminders: Holiday Shoppe Volunteers Needed & Quick Notes

    Posted by Ron Swantner on 11/28/2022 12:30:00 PM

    Our Holiday Shoppe Week is just around the corner and we continue to need volunteer help! Without parents to help the children shop, we will not be able to host this fun event for our children in which they are given the chance to buy gifts ranging from $.25- $20 for their family and friends. The Holiday Shoppe will run from December 5-9. Children have designated class times when they can shop or they can shop after hours at LPC on Friday, December 9 from 4-8pm. Please consider giving some of your time to help us with this fun event! Volunteer sign up: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60B0544ACA72FA7FC1-landisville

    This Friday, most of our LPC students have earned the opportunity to view a movie as part of our PBIS Incentive Assemblies for showing safety, respect and responsibility. The movie we are hopeful to show does have a “PG” rating. The movie aligns with our current social stories and skills when it comes to having our students verbally share their emotions and feelings as we all learn to better understand each other, show empathy, problem solve, and add tools and resources to our strategies box of learning. Please contact me if you would prefer to NOT have your child view this movie or if you have more questions regarding it. I can be reached at (717) 898-5519 or via email at ron_swantner@hempfieldsd.org.

    Quick notes:

    • Our clothing supply in the nurse’s office is significantly diminished. Any donations to help with unexpected needs will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your help with this request!

    • We are continuing to work on building others up and filling buckets at LPC! Please take time to review the seriousness of the words your child uses with others. Any threats or violent statements made towards others are taken very seriously and do not have a place in our school or our community, for that matter. Please remind your child that negative and inappropriate comments will not be tolerated and will result in consequences. Thanks for your continued partnership in this important area.

    • Parents – if you are planning on attending special events in your child’s classroom, please know it is the teacher and school’s expectation that students stay in school after the event for any final lessons prior to dismissal. Unless you are signing your child out from their teacher’s classroom after 3:15pm, they will receive unexcused tardy minutes on their state-reported attendance. Thanks in advance for planning accordingly and keeping communication open with your child’s classroom teacher.

    • If you have any concerns or questions regarding your child and what is happening in his/her classroom, please pick up the phone or send an e-mail to the teacher. It is important to keep lines of communication open between home and school, so that we can make certain we are all on the same page for helping your child. After doing this, if you feel you are still not on the same page, please call Mr. Swantner and we can set up a time to meet together to refocus and prioritize making certain our focus is on your child.

  • November PBIS Assembly

    Posted by Mike Resh on 11/4/2022 4:00:00 PM

    Students and staff at LPC participated in their November PBIS Assembly on Friday.  PBIS stands for “Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support” and LPC’s program helps to promote positive behaviors of safety, responsibility, respect, and kindness (“Bucket Filling”) throughout our school. 

    Students and staff learned about the character trait of “Honesty” and learned three new tools for their Zones of Regulation Toolbox.  Please ask your child about which "Pie Strategy for Calm" that they liked the best!  

    Selected PBIS All-Stars from each classroom had fun "pieing" a staff member with shaving cream, whipped cream, and even Apple Pie Pies.

  • Landisville Cares Week

    Posted by Mike Resh on 10/31/2022 9:00:00 AM

    Last week, LPC and LIC took part in Landisville Cares Week to promote positive mental health among our students and staff.  As part of this week, students from LPC and LIC came together for different activities on our Landisville Campus.  Although we are two separate buildings, we are one Landisville School Family.  

    LPC Aevidum Club members worked with LIC Student Ambassadors to decorate the front sidewalks with positive and inspirational messages for visitors to the building to view.
