On Wednesday, November 8th, the first report card of the school year will be available to view in  HCPSS Connect at 4:00 p.m. When viewable, please take a moment to congratulate your child on his or her academic achievements and see what goals can be made for the second quarter! We are extremely proud of all of our Mighty Ducks!

Parent/teacher conferences are scheduled for November 20th, 21st & 22nd. The parent teacher conference sign-up window opens on Monday, November 6 at 8 a.m. and closes on Thursday, November 16 at 4 p.m.  Each conference will be 15 minutes.  On Monday, November 6, please login to HCPSS Connect to sign up for a conference time.

As we move forward into the month of November, this is always a great time to share our appreciation, thanks and gratitude. Reflecting on our many blessings and sharing our gratitude with others can truly make a difference. The staff at Manor Woods works so hard every day to make sure our students and families are happy and successful and we would love your help in recognizing our staff during this month of Thanksgiving. Will you join us in recognizing a staff member? Will you recognize any staff member who is making a difference for your child(ren)?
