Manning Information 

On Wednesday, December 13 from 6-7:30, Manning will host a third Open House event for families interested in Manning for their current 5th or 6th grader. Based on feedback from our community, this info night will be a bit more streamlined and focused on specifics about how our school operates.  We will not feature live performances from our musicians, but we will share what Manning has to offer their students and answer their questions about how we will transition from a 7-8 to a 6-8 system.  Families and students can expect information regarding:

·       Our traditions of academic rigor meant to prepare students for high school, college and life beyond.

·       Our expansive elective, club, and extracurricular opportunities meant to help students discover and kindle their interests and passions.

·       How families and students can tour Manning during school hours.

·       The logistical decisions and systems we’ve made to make our building efficient and effective with a larger student body.

·       The open enrollment process.

·       How Manning students balance meeting the demands of high academic expectations while remaining whole, engaged, active kids.
