The Manning Weekly Update

Monday, September 26th, 2022

Hello Manning Parents,

I hope all Manning families had a great long weekend!

Our Manning staff spent Friday's staff development day working on examining our school data including MAP and CMAS data. It was great to have the entire staff work in groups, examine data and come up with their own conclusions about what our school data tells us. As a school, our CMAS scores were higher in English compared to Math and our boys scored lower than our girls in English. Our staff is committed to constant improvement as a school and we are continuing to look at how we can help all Manning students reach their highest potential!

Our staff also spent time working on our SSIS, which is our social skills improvement system. All Jeffco schools complete these surveys to give the district, and our school, information and direction regarding our students' social/emotional data. We want all of our students to feel safe, secure and part of our school.

Please follow all parking lot rules and procedures. In the "hug and go" parallel to 32nd avenue, it is clearly marked as a fire lane and "no parking" zone. Please help us keep our students safe and be respectful of others in the parking lot.

Thanks for your support!

Mike Collins, Principal
