News from Manchester Memorial Elementary School!
May 6, 2016
This a such a great time of year at school because there is so much activity! There are many exciting events planned for the next few weeks, and students are "all abuzz!" This is also a time of year when many classes will be going on fun field trips to different locations.
There has been some confusion about electronic devices being used on field trips. The student handbook does not allow students to use personal electronic devices (ie. cell phones) during the school day. They must remain "off" and in their locker/backpack. To clarify, this rule is in effect on our school buses and during field trips. In fact, all student handbook rules are in effect on our school buses and field trips.
This week was also "teacher appreciation week" across the country. It is a week set aside to thank the amazing educators that care for and teach our children every day. On behalf of the students and families of MMES, I treated the staff to a "thank you" cake in the teacher's room today. We are fortunate to have such an amazing crew!
Have a great weekend. Happy Mothers' Day to all of the moms out there!

Greetings from the Foreign Language Room!
I have updated my website and added an "Our Work" page so that I could include links to the 3rd and 4th grade class videos that were on display at the Student Showcase this week. If you were unable to attend or had trouble with the Wifi, please check out the links to these great videos.
Watch out later this spring for more videos!
