The Manning Weekly Update

2022/23 School Year

Hello Manning Parents and Students,

Welcome to the 2022-23 school-year! I'm excited to be the Interim Principal at Manning. It is such an honor to lead a great school community! Manning has a great reputation of excellence in the areas of academics, arts and student behavior and we're excited to continue these traditions.

This will be my 36th year working in education and I'm thrilled to be back in the Applewood/Golden community. I have worked at Wheat Ridge HS (Athletic Director); Prospect Valley Elementary (Principal); and had the pleasure of working as the Assistant Principal at Manning in 2019-2020. Most recently, I served as the Principal at Landmark Academy at Reunion, a K-8 Charter school.

My priorities at Manning are ensuring that all students reach their academic potential; making sure all students feel welcome, safe, and a part of the school-community; and to work closely with parents to help our students thrive! Parents will always be welcome at Manning and encouraged to come in and talk about whatever is on your mind.

We want to welcome our new staff members to the Manning community:

Tommy Dowd - Dean of Students (Coming to us from Wheat Ridge HS)

Emily Smith - Math (Coming to us from West Jefferson MS)

Mitch Hahn - ELA (Coming to us from a Charter School in Parker)

Shannon May - Art / Multi Media (Former Jeffco District Art Coordinator)

Lauren Montgomery - Performing Arts (Coming to us from Silver Hills in Adams 12)

Sarah Hammershaimb - Digital Tech Librarian (Coming to us from Lasley Elementary)

Stacey Morrison - SPED Para (Manning Parent)

Martina Ita - Psychologist (We are sharing her with Dutch Creek Elementary)

Britney Derhak - Counselor (A-L) (Coming to us from Moore MS)

Elizabeth Dehm - Office Para (Manning Parent)

We will be adding their bio's to the Manning Website shortly.

I look forward to seeing all of you at registration on Friday, 8/5 and Monday 8/8.

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your summer - it's going to be a great year at Manning!

Mike Collins,

Manning Interim Principal

Create or find a carpool to school!

Since Manning does not have any Jeffco school bus transportation, we have several families that create carpools to help each other out with rides in the morning and afternoon for students that live in close by areas.

To sign up and help other families with a carpool, please CLICK HERE
