Hello Manual Families, 

We had a great week at Manual and it was important that we had a full, uninterrupted week of learning. Your students have so much joy, passion and brilliance and I am so thankful to be a witness to their excellence each and every day. This message will serve to connect us together so that we’re on the same page about how best to ensure student success. 

Community Focus:

Did you know that Manual has gone from the second lowest attended high school during 2022 – 2023 to the 5th highest attended high school in DPS? Celebrate! That is remarkable growth. Now it is important that our students are getting to school on time and to class on time. Support your students by making sure they are arriving at 8:20 when possible and are prioritizing being to class on time.
