Dear Mustang Families,

The weather has been beautiful in Manitou Springs. Students and staff are enjoying walks around our school, visits to the Flying Pig Farm, and other outdoor learning activities. As we prepare for the end of the school year, please help us encourage students to:
  • Show up to school on time and ready to learn.

  • Speak and write in complete sentences.

  • Be mindful of our ongoing safety protocols (including mask wearing, hand washing, and staying home when sick).

As we enter the home stretch, staff is here to support your student with a strong finish to the school year.
