School is right around the corner. It’s not too early to start getting ready. You and your family may be eligible under a federal program for Child Nutrition: https://www.fns.usda.gov/cnp/fr-032019
Research has shown that good nutrition has a positive impact on a child’s ability to focus and learn. It is important that we provide a nurturing environment for each child, so that individual success as a student can be maximized. We would encourage you to review the links below and submit an application. Even kindergarten students can qualify for meals; which is certainly helpful if you plan to send them to breakfast or for the days when they have a chance to eat lunch at school with the older students. Please contact Brian Malek for more details. All information is confidential. Many families are unaware that they qualify for this meal assistance program.

Central Manor’s Meet the Teach Open House will be held on Wednesday, August 29th from 4 to 6 p.m. Unfortunately I have a class on Wednesday evening that I can’t miss, so I will be in our classroom from 3:45 – 5:15 p.m.
If my adjusted schedule doesn’t work for you and your family, please let me know, and we’ll come up with an alternative time to get together.
I am looking forward to seeing you!
Spelling packets are due tomorrow, Thursday. On Friday, to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day we will be wearing o’ the green, and having a vocab quiz and spelling test. 🙂
The in-service day scheduled for Friday, Jan 12 has been moved to TUESDAY, JAN 16. Monday, Jan. 15 is a holiday. 🙂
This spelling list is, in my opinion, the trickiest of the year. The file below has simple definitions and sentences using the word. Our test is on Monday. Please encourage your student to study!
Research suggests that a positive school climate can support student success. What is school climate? It is the quality and character of our school as experienced by you, a parent/caregiver and member of our community. So, Central Manor needs your help!
This Wednesday, November 8th, we will have refreshments in the office for you to enjoy while you are here for your parent/teacher conference. While you’re enjoying your snacks, we are hoping you’ll take time to complete a brief 5 minute survey. The survey format is completely anonymous. The questions will be about your personal experiences as a Central Manor parent. Please take time to stop by the office before or after your child’s conference.
If you’d prefer to take this brief survey at home, the link is below.
The invitation code you will use is: CLU03I **(the last character is a capital i)**
Anyone who takes the survey, will be entered into a drawing. Central Manor will be giving away 10 gift cards to Turkey Hill simply for participating. If you complete the survey at home, please simply send in a brief note stating, “I completed the survey at home,” add your child’s name on the note, and have your child hand it in to the office.
The survey will be open until November 17, 2017. Thank you so much. We appreciate your help.
