2.  Walk for the Arts Tomorrow!

We hope that your child has sponsors lined up and is ready to participate!

We are still looking for volunteers to work at the event and we still need bakers for the bake sale! If you contribute time, baked goods, or both, please sign-up via our Google doc (link below) or contact us directly.

The Walk for the Arts will go on as scheduled unless we have torrential rain, so please dress appropriately on Saturday. Show your Manning spirit by wearing your Manning T!

5. May’s Genre Challenge is Mysteries

The challenge is to have the students read at least three books each month of that particular genre. Once they have finished reading a book, each classroom teacher has a small form that the student needs to fill out with their name, title of the book, genre title, grade, and a brief summary of the book.
