Last Chance for Field Day Shirts!
Shirts are $10 and sales will close on Monday, April 4 at midnight to ensure that all shirts arrive in time.
Every student needs a shirt to match their class. If you need assistance purchasing a shirt, please reach out to our counselor, Ms. Pena - email@example.com. If you would like to donate to support a student in need, please reach out to Ms. Pena. Thanks!
I would like to let you know that staff at Manford Williams Elementary are ready and happy to provide supports.
We will have a designated area available at lunch time for fasting students who do not wish to come to the cafeteria. Fasting students who want to sit in the cafeteria are welcome to do so and will not be required to eat or drink. During outdoor recess, fasting students are welcome to sit in a shaded area, or can request to spend this time indoors.
Please reach out to your child's teacher/front office and encourage your children to communicate with their teachers about any needs that may occur during Ramadan.
Our partnership with our school community is important. We thank our families for their communication with the campus regarding special occasions and observances that may impact the instructional day, so that we can be a source of support to all.
