Attention 6th and 7th Grade Families - Enrollment for Manning Next Year

Good afternoon Manning Community,

Beginning on Monday, January 10th, ALL current Manning Families will need to log into to confirm their enrollment for next year. It is very important that we know who plans on attending Manning during the 2022-2023 school year for budgetary and scheduling purposes. Therefore, it is mandatory that all families complete this process by Friday, January 28th.

If you are returning to Manning next year, this is the only task you will need to complete until August. If you are not returning to Manning, enrollment will need to take place with your new school of choice within Enroll Jeffco.

All families can log into, with the same username and password that you used with Jeffco Connect. If you are unsure of your username/password, please utilize the Personal Account Manager to manage your account information.

If you have any technical issues, please reach out to the after-hours support line at 303-982-2372.

Thank you for your understanding and patience these past few weeks as we worked through the technical challenges that delayed the enrollment process.

One foot in and one foot out: Managing moments when emotions and behaviors get big and feel out of control

Jan. 25 6:00pm - 7:30pm & Jan. 26 10:00am - 11:30am

Have you noticed that when your child’s stress levels rise, yours do, too? Or, when their behaviors escalate, yours escalate as well? Have you been caught in the trap of yelling, slamming doors, and hollering empty or extreme threats? This all makes sense. Brain science can help us understand these crazy dynamics we get stuck in with our children. Learn how to use this information to guide you through the toughest of moments. This session is for parents and caregivers of toddlers to teenagers.
