New Medication Policy at MPS
The Manvel Volunteer Fire Department received an Otter Tail Power Company Foundation Award! The funds will be used for the purchase of fire extinguishers for Manvel Public School families this spring. Chris Klie from Otter Tail presented the award. Big thanks to Richard Ray for writing the grant proposal.
Manvel Fire will work with the school to distribute the fire extinguishers and provide training on fire prevention and fire extinguisher use. We are excited for all our MPS Families!
Thanks to Mrs. Fruetel, the staff, parents and the community members who helped make Curling a GREAT success!
'Books and Braids' for Reading Month in February was a huge hit ~ thanks to all who participated!
8th graders are testing their model homes with Mr. Twedell ~ the goal is to reduce energy loss due to heat or cold.
