SRSLY NYE Party


SRSLY is gearing up for its eighth annual New Year’s Eve party with a great line-up of games, prizes, and music– and is inviting Manchester families to come join the fun! The SRSLY New Year’s Eve Party will take place from 4pm to 8pm Thursday, Dec. 31 at Beach Middle School in Chelsea. The event is FREE and open to the public.


The SRSLY New Year’s Eve Party contradicts the conventional wisdom that this holiday can’t be celebrated without alcohol. With support from local businesses and service clubs, this free event features fun activities for kids and adults.


Coalition members are planning games and activities that will appeal to all ages, including team games and competitions (eating contests, relay races, card games, giant plinko and more), face painting, video games, cookie-decorating, music, dancing, swimming, basketball, volleyball, indoor soccer, and a chili cook-off. Don’t forget your swim suits!


The first 10 entrants in the chili cook-off will receive a $10 gift card to Polly’s Country Market in Chelsea to purchase supplies. To sign up for the chili cook-off, contact Daniel Marthey at Daniel.marthey@stjoeshealth.org or call 734-593-6269.


SRSLY Manchester Community Organizer Lindsay Hannah is involved with the organization of the event and stated “Manchester community members have also always had a presence at this event either helping out or just having a good time.”


SRSLY is also seeking student and adult volunteers from SRSLY Manchester to donate 1-2 hours during the event. If you are interested in volunteering click HERE, or for more information about the event in general click HERE.

Meet Kerry Wolf, Science Teacher


Hello. My name is Ms. Wolf. The 2015 - 16 school year is my twelfth at Manchester Middle School. A little about myself... I graduated from Midland High School and attended Colgate University where I studied biology. After college I moved to Washington and worked at Olympic National Park as a park ranger for five years. I earned my teaching license, Master of Science in Education, and reading specialist certification at Western Oregon University. After being away from Michigan for eleven years, I realized I was homesick and moved back. In 2004 I was extremely fortunate to be hired at Manchester Middle School, first as a fifth grade teacher and now as a seventh and eighth grade science teacher. I love it here! I feel both honored and thrilled to be a member of Manchester's education community.


As a Manchester teacher, I hope to meet the needs of the whole child by providing a positive educational experience in a safe and caring environment so students leave the classroom with an awareness of their potential, respect for others, and a desire to continue to learn.
