We’ve made it! This is the last week of the 2023-2024 school year. I want to, first, take a moment to express my appreciation for welcoming me to your community this year. For several of you, I am your second or third principal and I cannot imagine how challenging that might be. Building a community is so important and it takes consistency and time to make that happen. As I look back on this year, I am reflecting on both the celebrations and the next steps. Manning is a great school with an incredible community and is rich in its tradition of excellence. At the same time, our school has room to grow, and I am looking forward to taking our community feedback to ensure that our school maintains its focus on academic excellence and community partnership, while also meeting the needs of our students and greater community. Having a year under my belt has given me new perspectives on how we continue to move forward as a school community, and I am looking forward to engaging in this work. I am proud of our Manning Community, and I am privileged to serve as your principal. If you and your students are off to new adventures next year, I wish you the best. If you are returning to Manning next year, I am looking forward to partnering with you again. Please have a safe and enjoyable summer!

Quick Updates:

Welcoming Community Update - In order to preserve Manning’s safe and conducive learning environment for every member of the Manning community, we are taking some important measures in addressing the use of dehumanizing language in our school. Please take a moment to read THIS LETTER to learn more.

Braun Ct. Closure - Just a heads up that Braun Ct. (just west of our school) will be closed on Wednesday, May 22 and Thursday, May 23 for asphalt work. We are told this will not impact 32nd Avenue traffic.

Security Camera Update – Thank you, once again, for your generosity this spring as you helped us raise funds to add additional security cameras on our campus. With your support, we can add cameras in our exterior courtyard, parking lot, and the north side of the building. The additional cameras help us enhance safety and security for all members of our community!

Last Day of School - Our last official day of school is Thursday, May 23rd. 8th graders will go directly to the 8th grade picnic at Maple Grove Park, while our 6th and 7th graders will be enjoying a fun morning at Manning. School dismisses at 12pm on Thursday. The PTA is still looking for parent volunteers on this date, ideally they would like a few 6th & 7th grade parents to help at the picnic so that the 8th grade parents can enjoy the time with their 8th graders, click here to help out.

Please check out our website for the high-level overview of our last week of school schedule!

Lost and Found will be picked up on May 31st. If you are missing something please feel free to stop in and check it out. Office staff will be in the building.

Have a great week,
