Mustang Parent Newsletter
A Note from the Principal
Our annual PTO Turkey Bingo Fundraiser is back in the building on Thursday evening, November 3rd. Please see the information below in the flyer. We hope to see you all there for lots of fun! There is still time if you would like to donate a frozen turkey ~ please call the office at 696-2212.
In honor of our local veterans, we will be having a Veteran's Hero Parade on Wednesday, November 9th at 2:30 pm (see flyer below for details). In case of rain, we will ask Veterans to come inside the halls of the school so students can thank them for their service. This is a reminder there is No School on Thursday, November 10th, Friday, November 11th, Friday, November 18th, and Thursday, and Friday, November 24, & 25 for Thanksgiving break. The last day of school for 2022 is Wednesday, December 21st.
As the cold weather moves in, we would like to remind you to have our Mustang students bundled up with warm winter wear. *If you would like instant winter weather and school updates, you can sign up for the Manvel Mustang Parents REMIND app if you haven't already. You can find the directions to sign up at the bottom of this newsletter or on our website. If you are a family in need of winter clothing, please reach out to me or our school office.
Lastly, as we enter into the month of November, we want to GIVE THANKS for the opportunity to work with our families and students at MPS. We are grateful for the support and feedback that you give us to help make MPS a place that guides students to a happy, successful, and safe education! As always, we value your feedback about how things are going and we are always open to your input and ideas on how to make Manvel School better. This school belongs to all of us, and you are a special part of our success! Please reach out to Dr. Wheeler or me ~ we are happy to visit.
We are grateful for you. Have a healthy and Happy Thanksgiving!
Mrs. Hiltner, Principal

Sensory Room at MPS
We are very proud of both our sensory room and sensory hallway at MPS. It helps many students each day with sensory needs, which in turn allows them to be successful learners!
What is Sensory Processing Disorder?
SPD is a condition where sensory stimuli aren't interpreted properly by the brain and nervous system. Children with this condition tend to be either over-sensitive or under-responsive to stimuli. The signs of SPD can vary greatly.
Below are some pictures of our Sensory Room at MPS. If you think your child may have SPD, please visit with your child's teacher, or call the office to request a brochure on SPD.
