Dear MPS Families:

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for partnering with us at Manvel School to bring your child the best education possible. Our success could not happen without your support and input! As the principal, I am amazed at the dedication and commitment given to our students and this school. Your children are a "gift" to us! May we all see Christmas through the eyes of a child and enjoy the magic and peace of the season!

*School at MPS will resume on Tuesday, January 3rd, 2023

~ Mrs. Hiltner, Principal

Bus students:

All students who ride a bus to school must have coats, caps, mittens/gloves, and appropriate shoes/boots. This is a safety issue now that the weather is getting cold. Although the buses are warmed and ready when students board them, the cool down quickly when doors open, and if a bus should ever stall, we want the students to remain safe and comfortable.
