The Manning Weekly Update
October 17, 2022
Hello Manning Parents,
We want to thank parents for participating in Parent/Teacher conferences last week. We also want to thank our PTA for providing such a great dinner spread for our staff members! Thanks to all the parents who pitched in to support our teachers.
Our PTA is working hard preparing for our Chili Cookoff on October 28 - we hope you will join us!
Special thanks to Hive Homes for signing on as a FallFest sponsor and the many families that have already donated an item to the Silent Auction. Mountain cabin getaways, handyman services, lift tickets, Haunted Halloween activities, Avalanche tickets, restaurant gift certificates and limo rides are just a few of the items we already have on the dockett. The excitement is building and we hope you’ve got it on your calendar! If you want to get in on the fun by sponsoring the event, you can learn more about opportunities here.
Just a reminder:
- For any children bringing medications (prescription or OTC) to Outdoor lab... It's not too early to get in your OELS medication agreement form and medication to the Clinic.
- Tutor Time begins at 7:50 am each morning and all students are welcome to come in and get extra help from a teacher.
- Please review the dress code with your child.
- Cell phones and Apple Watches need to be left in lockers and turned off.
- Our One Day Count came in at 670 students this year.
Thanks for all your support!
Mike Collins, Principal
