The Manning Weekly Update
January 23, 2023
Hello Manning Parents,
Here is some news from Manning for you...
*I spoke to our students last Friday about some of the behavior that has been reported to me from Starbucks on Friday afternoons. I emphasized to our students that it's important that they are positive members of our community and show our neighbors their best. I am proud of the way our students work and behave at school - we want the community to see that same great behavior.
*Tomorrow, January 24th, is when Jeffco Schools will notify parents of their school choice application results. If you have any questions about choice enrollment, etc., please call the school.
*Our PTA met last Thursday and we want to once again thank all the members of our Manning PTA for their support. Ms. Kayla Bjorke reported out on her classroom activities, as well as Mrs. Cheri Cahill who reported out on an upcoming community service project. The next PTA meeting is scheduled for February 16 at 8:30 am in the Manning LMC.
*Our STEAM club, led by Mrs. Sarah Maud competed in a STEAM competition at the Colorado School of Mines last Friday....Way to go Mustangs!
*Our school recently purchased four additional cameras to provide an even safer environment at our school.
Thanks for your support!

The Manning School Chess Club starts again 2/3
Calling all budding Kings and Queens to one of Colorado’s premier
chess programs! With new lessons for returning students, our creative
curriculum brings humor, stories, and "chessercizes" to help students
apply lessons on and off the board. Chess education has been shown
to help kids improve logic, math, and reading comprehension skills.
Students calculate options and evaluate consequences, learning to
overcome obstacles and practice visualization techniques to think
ahead. Whether playing in our scholastic tourneys or with family and
friends, kids love learning with PALS because we make chess FUN!
