Manitou Springs Middle School

February 26th, 2021

Hello Mustang Families,

As we wrap up the third quarter and look ahead towards the end of the year, I find myself reflecting on all our school community has been through the past 12 months. Although our students have faced numerous challenges, I have been inspired by their kindness towards each other. Every student at the middle school contributes to our positive school culture. We are grateful for your support.
