Virtue for the month of December: Generosity

Generosity is giving and sharing freely without the expectation of something in return. It is one of the best ways to show love and friendship.

Please send a virtue voucher when your child practices generosity at home. During the month of December, it is especially important to teach and practice this virtue so children can feel the joy of giving as much (or more) than receiving!

Elementary School Food Drive

Our Elementary class officers are collecting non-perishable food for the Lancaster County Food Hub as a Community Service project. We appreciate all of your donations as we help families have enough food during these long winter days. Thank you!

Primary & Elementary Winter Program

Thursday, Dec. 19th, 6pm

The Junction Center, 1875 Junction Road, Manheim, PA 17545

Please drop your child off first and then go park in one of the two side parking lots. Please enter through the side glass doors next to where you dropped off your child(ren).

We ask that parents drop off and find their seats immediately or wait in the lobby area. There is limited space in the pre-performance room so we need to keep traffic to a minimum.

Seating will begin in the lower areas first before the center will open the balcony seating. Please fill in the seats so we can make room for everyone to sit together as much as possible.

After the children perform, they will return to their "waiting" area until all the students have given their performances. After all students have performed, your children will be released to you so you can watch the grand finale slideshow together.

New Lunch Program!

Thank you all for participating in the CoreLife lunch program. We are learning as we go and have a new option for you to choose from. One of our parents has offered to supply a program starting in January. See below for more information:

My name is Cindy. My husband (Sam) and I own Silantra Restaurant located right in downtown Lancaster City. We provide gluten free and vegan/vegetarian options, and we are a completely nut free facility as well. We came up with a simple menu where each lunch plate will always consist of a grain, a protein, and a veggie so all friends can get what they need to fuel the rest of their day! If you're around downtown, please drop by and come say hi! Either Sam or I will be there!

If you would like to get to know about our restaurant some more, please visit our website at and take a look at our virtual menu and the press page to learn more.

We are also very involved in the community and giving back whenever we can. Please visit to find out more.

Lastly, here is an old video (from two years ago) that shows a bit of how we freshly prep our food everyday and the love and care that goes into our food and restaurant

Below is a menu we have put together for the month of January. Everything is gluten free, dairy free, nut free, sesame free, and no added sugars, but I promise everything still tastes delicious! If there are other concerns, please let us know!
