  • Social Media Saftey

    Student safety is our top priority in our district and here at Manual Academy. We encourage parents to educate yourself on social media (Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, Tumblr, Kick, Whisper, etc.), have discussions with your child about the dangers and consequences of social media, and set rules and guidelines including keeping your computer in a common area of your home and frequently checking the privacy settings on your child’s accounts. We appreciate your assistance and patience in this matter, as we continue to work to keep our school a safe place to learn for all students.

  • Snowflake 2015

    Manual Prep Academy recently put on its first ever Snowflake. The event focused on building up students to make positive choices in their life and be open and honest with others. It started with a keynote address by Sgt. Steven Starks from the Army National Guard, continued through small group ice breakers facilitated by JROTC cadets, two team-building challenges, and a small group round table discussion about real-world topics. Students created their own "Warm Fuzzies" to hand out every time they shared a genuine positive comment with another student during the event and had an immense amount of fun when it culminated in pedal cart races, provided by the Army recruiters, and their only middle school dance of the year.

  • Community Garden Day

    Manual Students, staff, and community members gathered on Saturday, April 18 to get the Sunny Rams Community Garden ready for planting. Everyone worked together to clean up, weed the beds, turn the compost, lay down new soil, and sow some seeds. The students all agreed that it was fun to give back to the community. The seedlings that Ms. Mass and Mrs. Daly's science classes planted in the greenhouse will be transplanted into the garden in a few weeks. Community members will have access to fresh produce all summer long.
