CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR COUNTY ORCHESTRA MEMBERS
On Saturday, February 22nd, LLMEA (Lancaster-Lebanon Music Educators Association) held the 2014 County Orchestra Festival. Each year, 200+ students grades 7 through 12 come together to perform a beautiful evening of orchestral music. Penn Manor was well represented by 10 students this year. Of those 10 were 4 of our very own students from Marticville Middle. Selected this year to perform were: Hannah Shenk (8th grade violinist), Emlee Charles (8th grade violinist), McKenna Eshelmen (8th grade violinist) and Nolan Stauffer (7th grade bassist). Former Marticville students now representing Penn Manor HS are: Caleb & Christine Bye (9th grade violinists). These students did a fantastic job representing Marticville Middle and Penn Manor School District. Congratulations to all of our Penn Manor Students for a job well done.
ON SUNDAY MORNING… (WRESTLING AND SCHOLASTIC WRITING AWARDS)
Nicholas Fafel Qualified for States in wrestling
Over the years, the Scholastic Writing Awards have grown to become the longest-running, most prestigious program for creative teens in the United States. The program identifies teenagers with exceptional creative talent and brings their remarkable work to a larger audience. This year, several students from Marticville submitted writing to the Scholastic contest, and we have several winners. We’d like to congratulate the following students, who will be recognized and receive awards at a ceremony in February. Congratulations to Emma Spearing for receiving a Gold Key Award. Congratulations to Hailey Fafel and Nicholas Fafel who both won a Silver Key Award. And congratulations to AnnaKatherine Kirk, Samantha Adelman, Veronica Cazillo, and Ryan Shirk who all received Honorable Mentions. You should all be very proud of your efforts!
