    Dear Parents and Community:

    I am very excited to start my second year being the Manhattan K-4 Principal. It is going to be a very good year here at the Manhattan Schools. Please feel free to stop in and say “Hi” or introduce yourself if we haven’t met yet. At our schools, we want to make parents feel welcome and know that we will do whatever we can to help students be successful.

    The first big event of the school year is the posting of the class lists. Class lists have been finalized and in following tradition, we will be posting class lists on the front entrance of the K-4 school the Friday before Potato Days which is August 16th. This will happen late in the afternoon.

    Teacher meetings will begin on Friday, August 23rd and end on Tuesday, August 27th. On August 27th we are going to have a Sneak-a-Peek Open House from 1-3 in the afternoon. During this time students and parents can meet teachers, see classrooms and relieve some of the anxiety of the first day of school. The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) will have an information table set up, hand out ice cream bars, and sell Tiger Gear at that time.

    The PTO will have their first meeting on Monday, September 9th at 6:00. This is a great opportunity for parents to jump in and help this important service organization. The PTO’s biggest fundraiser, the Fun Run, will be held on Thursday, September 26th. They will need plenty of helpers for this event. The Fun Run earns thousands of dollars which have been used to help pay for many school resources. i.e. Laptops and carts, teacher supplies

    Remember that all class supply lists are posted on the school website.

    Our school grounds look great, please let the custodians know you appreciate all their hard work.

    Students in grades 1-4 will begin school on August 28th. Kindergarten teachers will meet with parents on the 28th. Kindergarten students will begin classes on August 29th.
