Good Evening Manara STEM Families, We are excited to welcome some new staff members on our campus this week! Please help me welcome Ms. Daqrouq - Pre-K 3 Aide, Ms. Goodson - Kindergarten teacher joining Ms. Dormier, and Ms. Melia - Sped teacher joining our Sped team. I'm excited to add more great teachers to our team! If your child in grades 3-8 have not paid for their Chromebook deposit, please do so this week. We are super close to being the first campus to have all our scholars with their Chromebooks, which means we are close to earning 5 free dress down days for the entire campus! If you need help filling out the form on our website, please let me know. I am happy to help you complete the order form. Report cards were handed out on Friday, September 22 for scholars in 1st-8th grades. If you have any questions regarding your child's progression, please reach out to their teacher. Student-led conferences will be held November 6-10 after the 2nd 6 week period has completed, but if you are wanting to discuss grades and progression prior to that, let the teacher know. Have a great rest of the weekend! Happy 1st day of Fall! Enjoy the sunshine! #MAWAY!
