Manitou Springs Middle School

October 23rd, 2020

Dear Manitou Springs Middle School Community,

I hope everyone had a great week. Our students are the best. The staff at the middle school enjoyed teaching and learning with students in person this week. Thank you for your support in reinforcing mask wearing, social distancing, and hand washing with your child. These practices will keep everyone healthy so we can remain at school.

School Instructional Goal

We have a goal that 100% of students will respond in a complete sentence when asked a content based question by a teacher or peer. Encouraging students to use complete sentences enables them to think in complete thoughts. This links new words to new concepts and students are able to practice using academic language. Parents can reinforce this at home when speaking to students about what they are learning at school.

Inclement Weather Monday

Students will be allowed in the building at 7:45 on inclement weather days and will report to their first block class. Students will still enter through their grade level door. Supervision of students before 7:45 is not available. Please send students to school with appropriate cold weather attire. We have hooks in the hallways for students to store their clothing.

PAC Meeting Next Week

The next 6-12 PAC will be meeting on Wednesday, October 28th, at 6PM in the HS Media Center. The agenda will include voting in new officers and brainstorming projects and fundraisers for the year. Please email Coralyn Gauvin ( if you are interested in one of the officer positions. Hope to see you there!
