Dear Manor Woods Families, 

Happy Friday! The month of October is moving quickly and the end of the first quarter will be here before we know it. Please remember parents/guardians can access Canvas gradebook at any time to monitor your child’s grades/progress throughout the quarter. Checking periodically throughout the quarter is encouraged as it can result in conversations around strengths and areas of need with your child in terms of work completion and content mastery. In addition, it may result in questions that may arise for your child’s teacher prior to the end of the quarter. 

Did you know at the elementary level Related Arts grades are formally documented on the report card at the end of the first semester/2nd quarter? This area on the first quarter report card will be shaded and you will not see a grade until the second quarter report card. However, parents/guardians can check Canvas gradebook for Related Arts grades at any time. Grades for these classes are available now and will continue to be available throughout the year. 

We are excited for our upcoming PTA events. Please join us next week for our PTA sponsored 2nd Annual HIspanic Heritage Month Celebration. It would be great to have more volunteers. Use the link below to sign up.

Our PTA is also sponsoring our first Trunk or Treat on Friday, October 27th from 5:15 pm - 6:30 pm.  Once again, consider volunteering for the Trunk or Treat by clicking on the link below. We are so appreciative of our PTA and the many activities and events provided for our students and families by our PTA throughout the school year.  

We look forward to seeing many families at these upcoming events.

Have a fabulous weekend! 

Kelli Jenkins, Principal
Jennifer Zinn, Assistant Principal
