Red Hawk Update
Manchester High School: June 24, 2022
From The Principal
Dear MHS Red Hawk Community,
Yesterday was the last day of classes for Red Hawk students and today was the last day for teachers and other staff members and it was spent as you would expect, with packing up, planning meetings and farewells.
This is always a bittersweet time of year, especially at the high school. There is always a great deal of excitement and emotion among the seniors as they experience the milestone events that they’ve anticipated for so long leading up to graduation. We have photos below capturing some of those highlights, such as their return to our elementary for ‘grad walks’ and the car parade.
There is a lot of attention ‘down the stretch’ on the senior class but meanwhile our underclassmen are busy learning about themselves and their interests through classes and activities and all the while our staff is in overdrive with planning for the year ahead, as we are constantly challenging ourselves to find ways to make the Red Hawk experiences the best it can be for all members of our community.
So, yes, it’s the end of the year but we are never done with our work and I want to express my appreciation to everyone -- families, staff and especially our students -- for your contributions.
To the class of ‘22, all the best! We look forward to seeing where your journeys lead and will follow along with great pride. To our underclassmen, have a fun, safe summer and we look forward to seeing you in the fall. (Tuesday, Sept. 6 is Freshman First Day with grades 10-12 also reporting the following day.)
In the meantime the high school will be busy with summer classes and lots of work on the building (including the continued installation of solar panels on the roof) as well as planning for the fall.
Finally, please contact the school if you have any questions or concerns but otherwise rest, relax and enjoy the summer.

Manchester High seniors came together on Friday, June 3 for yearbook distribution and signing.
It was a wholesome moment seeing the faces of the seniors, as they check out the pages in the yearbook.

Thanks for the Memories, Ed!
More than 100 former Manchester High students returned to perform with an alumni chorus at a special Round Table concert celebrating the career of Ed Tyler, who is retiring after 33 years. WFSB-Channel 3 was there and aired this terrific story and we also have lots of photos from the event on the district Facebook page.
