For the safety of all students, we have made a few changes to our restroom procedures. At MSHS, restroom doors will be locked during lunch, all transitions, and during the first and last ten minutes of class. Only one floor will have an open restroom per period, in which that particular restroom will be monitored by a team member. Thank you for your understanding. Thank you for all that you do!

Student Parking Permits

Big picture

Any student that is driving on campus, you will need to purchase a parking permit. Please come to the front office to pick up a form to complete. You will also need to provide a valid driver's license, proof of insurance and $20 cash only. See Mrs. Arellano during all lunch periods, and before or after school.

College, Career, Military Ready

SAT Registration Dates and Deadlines are attached. To obtain a SAT Fee Waiver, all seniors are to use the following process:

The process for a senior (preference over juniors) to obtain a SAT fee waiver to use to register for an upcoming SAT is the following:

1. Email Senia Deshay (senia.deshay@manorisd.net) and copy Patricia Reyes (patricia.reyes@manorisd.net) and Melanie Henson (melanie.henson@manorisd.net) and ask if you are eligible to receive a SAT fee waiver and to request a SAT fee waiver if you are.

2. Ms. Deshay will verify if you qualify for a fee waiver in Skyward. If you are eligible, Ms. Deshay will assign a fee waiver code to you and email it to you.

3. You will use the fee waiver code to register for the appropriate SAT.

4. You can use the same SAT fee waiver code twice - you can retake the SAT one more time at no cost. You can only get one fee waiver your junior/senior year. You do not get one your junior year to test twice and one your senior year to test twice. You get one SAT fee waiver and can use it to test twice.

5. The student may not give the fee waiver code to anyone else.

Please contact Dr. Melanie Henson, CCMR Advisor/Coordinator at melanie.henson@manorisd.net if you have any questions.

Please review our school chant with your child, and encourage them to recite it every morning!



“I AM SOMEBODY!”


Inspired by Rita Pierson & Les Brown


I AM SOMEBODY!


I was somebody when I came

I will be a better somebody when I leave

I deserve the education that I get here

I have things to do...people to impress...and places to go

I know what I want in life and I will do whatever it takes to get it

I will never allow other people’s opinions of me to become my reality


I AM SOMEBODY!


I will "Make An I.M.P.A.C.T."

I will live my dream because...

I deserve to live my dream

I am powerful


I am “Manor ISD Strong”


I AM SOMEBODY!
