The Manning Weekly Update

Principal's Message

Hello Manning Parents,

I hope everyone is enjoying the great weather!

Here are some reminders for you:

*No School for students- Friday, September 23rd. Teacher Professional Development Day.

*Thank you to Shawna Mendez and our Student Council for sponsoring our Movie Night last Friday night! Our students had a great time.

*We want to thank our PTA for all the support they have already given our staff, students and school. They have filled the staff lounge with snacks; provided lunch for teachers; sponsored our Back to School Night; and are planning our Chili Cookoff in October! Thanks Manning PTA!

*We are encouraging our students to be great neighbors with our local businesses, as many of our students like to head over to Starbucks on Friday afternoons. Please help us support this effort.

*Please remind your child to be careful walking through our parking lots and to look "both ways" before walking across a street or the parking lot. Students are also reminded to walk their bikes while on school grounds.

*Remind your child to check the lost and found at school - it is getting full of lost items!

Thanks for your support - Mike Collins, Principal

Wheat Ridge Volleyball

As you may or may not have heard. The City of Wheat Ridge is experiencing a severe server outage, giving us limited access to our records and temporarily shutting down our registration software.

In an effort to continue moving forward with volleyball registration, this paper registration form has been created. This form needs to be filled out in its entirety and emailed back to me at Priority enrolment will be determined by date and time form/email was sent. Once capacity has been met no additional registrations will be accepted.

The registration form can be digitally filled in. Please verify all information is correct before submitting. All program information will be sent out via email.

If you already registered for volleyball (before the crash), please send a copy of your registration/receipt to the email address above. Wheat Ridge Parks & Rec currently has no way of accessing these records and therefore cannot communicate to those already registered.

This form is for Volleyball registration only. Registration for Basketball, Track & Field, and Soccer will be available (hopefully) online starting December 12th.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions.
