Booked for Summer Passport Program

posted Jun 15, 2017, 8:12 AM by Bridget Krieger

All students went home on the last day of school with a Booked for Summer Passport.  Students can complete half of the passport on their own by completing the reading goals and filling in their own stamp. The other half challenges students to visit destinations throughout Manchester that foster reading and learning. These locations can be visited during normal business hours or during a fun event. Check out the calendar on the Booked for Summer website to see tons of activities going on this summer. There are many awesome free opportunities. The calendar will be updated all summer long! Students will return their passport in September to receive raffle tickets and do a follow up lesson with their new teacher.

2017-2018 Classroom Placements

posted May 11, 2017, 6:10 AM by Bridget Krieger

Our staff takes much time, effort and care in developing class rosters for each school year. The following are some of the factors that are taken into consideration as class lists are developed:
  1. A balance of academic achievement levels

  2. Behavior factors

  3. Compatibility of students with others in the classroom (separating others who have not worked well together in the past)

  4. Information provided by current teacher on work habits and program needs.


As parents you may have more information for us to consider such as: Please do not place my child with John because they are neighbors and are together all the time outside of school, or please separate my child from Sally since they have been in same class since K and need to develop independence. If you choose to provide specific information like the examples above, please provide either a written letter in a sealed envelope addressed to the Principal or send an email to jbriggs@mansd.org. Letters or emails are due by Friday, May 26th.  Please do not send a letter requesting a specific teacher.

Because of shifting enrollments and uncertainty around teacher assignments, we will not be able to finalize classroom lists until prior to the start of school. Classroom assignments will be mailed out at the end of August. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.

Congratulations Mrs. Webber!!
