Marcella from 5th grade earned Player of the Week because she was a positive role model during Fall Field Day.

4. Field Day Recap

It wasn’t just Halloween on October 31st – it was also Fall Field Day at the Manning! The students were paired of by grade – kindergarten and 5th, 1st and 4th, and 2nd and 3rd – for an afternoon of teamwork and community building. During relay races, soccer, tag games, epic rounds of tug of war, and cheers, Manning kids showed terrific cooperation and had a blast. We can’t wait for Field Day in the spring!
