Hello Manual Families, 

On Saturday, Manual had a remarkable graduation ceremony and sent our class of 2024 out with the celebration that they deserved. Graduation always fills my cup and reminds me of why our school community matters so much; because we get to see our students cross the stage with a diploma that gives them options for their future. There are just a few school days left for our 9th – 11th graders and it is time for them to start to focus on final exams that will happen on the last two days of school. Below is the outline of our last few days of the 2024 – 2025 school year. 

Community Focus Area:

Attendance: We must continue to come together to get students to school until the very last day of school. Manual’s attendance has dropped over quarter four and it is essential that students attend every day. Please support student arrival at 8:20 in order to be on time for class which starts at 8:30. 

Quarter 4 Attendance:  Juniors 77%, Sophomores 82% , Freshman 81%. Our goal for Quarter IV for all grade levels is 83%. It is essential that all four grades improve their attendance in May in order to meet our goal for Quarter IV. 

Coming Up at Manual:

Tuesday, May 28th: School resumes for 9th, 10th and 11th graders. 

Friday, May 31st: Late Start for Students – Classes Start at 10:00. 

Monday, June 3rd: Blue Day Final Exams

Tuesday, June 4th: Red Day Final Exams

Wednesday, June 5th: Finals Make Up Day. Students do not have to attend unless they have not finished finals or their work for class. This is just a make-up day for those students who are behind.
