Principal's Post - February 2015

Ben’s Bells Kindness Day

This Saturday, February 14, we will host our third annual Ben’s Bells Kindness Day. We welcome all families. A reminder to all that this event is an open house; come on by between 12:30 and 3:00 PM to help out with a number of worthwhile projects.

Science Fair
Please join us for the Fifth Grade Science Fair open house this coming Wednesday, February 18. It will be held in the MPR from 6:00-7:30. Students will share their hard work and fascinating ideas with family and friends.

2015-16 School Year
At this time of year, we receive many calls regarding tours of Manzanita for the next school year. We still have a couple of upcoming opportunities to share information with prospective families. One more Kindergarten Show and Tell is scheduled for this next Wednesday, February 18th at 2:15 PM. We will also be holding another general school tour for potential families, other than kindergarten, who might be interested in attending Manzanita for the 201516 school year. The tour is scheduled for Tuesday, March 17 at 12:15 PM. Anyone interested in attending either one of the sessions should call the office at 209-7800 to RSVP.

Another very important reminder: we are busy planning for next school year! Resident Manzanita families should have received pre-printed registration materials for returning students in the mail. These are due tomorrow, Friday, February 13.

If you are an open enrollment family, it is necessary for you to re-apply each year. If you currently attend the school via open enrollment and wish to continue, please be sure to submit the application no later than February 28 for next year. More information is available online at the district home page at: Notification of acceptance is expected by the beginning of April.

Thank you for your continued support and interest.
