Transition Night PDF Print E-mail
On May 21, Manara Academy's 5th grade parents and students attended a presentation about what to expect at Manara Middle School. Mr. Green and Mr. Lubos, the current 6th grade teachers, focused on Expeditionary Learning as well as CREW. 5th grade students were thrilled to hear about all the fantastic things to look forward to for next year. Lockers, CREW, active time and weekly community circle were some exciting topics in tonight's presentation. Tonight was exciting and successful night to start the next year of success.
 
5K Fun Run PDF Print E-mail

Thank you for your incredible support of the Manara Academy Family Fun Run 5K this past Saturday! We are grateful to our event sponsors: Symbiosis, Bayyinah TV, Amoud Foundation, and Hudson Peters. A HUGE shout-out goes to all the families that were in attendance (and those in their thoughts). As I was watching the runners and families persevere, I was honored. Honored to know that the families I lead and support everyday came together for a great cause. We were able to donate over $1000 to the Irving Community Clinic! Because of each of you and your dedication, families that cannot afford healthcare are able to through our donation.
The festival was just as outstanding! Families were laughing, chatting with other parents and just having a fun afternoon!
A big thank you goes out to my entire staff! Without their countless hours of planning, phone calls, running the course, Costco and Sam's runs (only to name a few) and collaboration as a team this would not have been possible. The compassion that each of them has was shown today! They were there supporting in every way possible!
Thank you for sharing in this wonderful experience with us!
Official results from the event are available at the RunOn website: http://goo.gl/F8yOKM
