Manning Community,

We did it!! I'm so proud of our students and staff for their incredible resilience and hard work this year! I'm so proud of our parents and community for their unwavering support and involvement in their child's education this year! I'm so happy to know that when we return next year, we are returning to a more normal school year! I'm just happy. What can I say? We were all given incredible challenges this year, and we met those challenges with grace, perseverance, and kindness.

We celebrated all of our students on Wednesday afternoon with certificates and otter pops on the football field. Our students had an awesome time connecting with their friends, getting their yearbooks signed, and just breathing a huge sigh of relief to be done with another school year! Of course, our 8th grade students got their continuation certificates, but we also gave each of our 6th and 7th students a "Courage and Kindness" certificate. To celebrate their efforts and grades, students got a silver emblem attached to this certificate for earning a cumulative gpa of 3.5-3.99 OR a gold emblem if they had a 4.0 cumulative gpa.

In addition, our 8th graders were celebrated on Thursday with their 8th grade picnic (thank you PTA!!) and their virtual continuation ceremony. I want to thank Ms. Shawna Mendez for directing this production, along with her supporting cast; Mr. Hughes, Mr. Crawford, Ms. McLeod, Ms. Norton, Ms. Keodonexay, Mr. Hovinen, and Ms. Heesacker. It was a great ceremony and I'm just so proud of Manning's 2021 continuing class!

Finally, just a reminder that starting Tuesday, June 1st, our office will be closed for the summer as construction will begin in our office to build a secure front entryway. As we will not be in the office to answer the phones, please reach out via email. If you have any questions about the start to next year, please feel free to reach out to me at Christian.Ramaker@jeffco.k12.co.us and I will be more than happy to help!

In the spirit of the year we all experienced, I will leave you with a final quote for the 2020-2021 school year:

"Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice, and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do." -Pele

We were successful this year, and for that, we should be proud! Have a wonderful summer, stay safe, and we look forward to welcoming our students back in August.

Stronger Together,

Christian Ramaker
