We hope you are having an enjoyable, safe, and restful summer. The first day of school is Monday, August 20 for students in grades K-5.  The first day for our pre-kindergarten students is Wednesday, August 22.

Back to school time is just around the corner and we would like all of our families to attend a drop in orientation on Friday, August 17 from 8:30-10:30 a.m. to prepare us for the new school year. This will be a wonderful opportunity for parents and students to meet their child’s classroom teacher and other faculty and staff members. Parents will receive bus route information and register for car rider parent pick up numbers. This is a great time to learn about our school and all of the opportunities available to our students and parents.  Manchester tee shirts will be available for purchase during orientation. We invite all Manchester families to join us for this event.

Drop-off/pick-up procedures: Students may be dropped off under the awning in our parent drop-off/ pick-up line as early as 6:50 a.m. All students will be will be offered a free, nutritious breakfast in the classroom. Students must be in their classrooms by 7:30 a.m. to avoid being tardy.

Student pick-up begins at 2:15 p.m. In order to keep all students safe, we ask parents to remain in their cars and use their assigned parent pick-up number when picking up students.

We look forward to many new and exciting learning adventures in the upcoming school year. Until then, continue to read every day and to work on our Galaxy Reading and Math programs. We look forward to seeing all of our Manchester Panthers very soon.
