Daveron Duncan and Raquwon Cooks took part in the CAT building LL open house family day. Building LL has been a huge contributor to the Manual industrial tech program the past few years. They asked that Manual be a part of their big day. Both students had an opportunity to meet and talk to many successful CAT employees. Daveron and Raquwon were able to talk about the program at Manual and show off some of their skills and projects. They were able to test out some of the latest welding equipment as well as program a Kawasaki robot and test their welding skills on a Miller virtual weld trainer.
After hearing a motivational presentation from Chad Hymas recently, Manual’s football players and cheerleaders decided to turn his words into their actions. Students around the school had been encouraged to be more aware of all students present inside the school building and to show more appreciation through acts of kindness. The student-athletes wanted to make the Homecoming Pep Assembly a big deal for their biggest fans. Through the dynamic voice of Mr. Anthony Kramer, the students of Mary Stecher’s classroom were introduced along with their escorts to the raving cheers of the student body. Those students recognized (not including escorts) are listed from left to right: Dustin Beck, Ben Arnold, Latrell Timothy-Crooks, Morgan Mawby, Ronnie Sanford, Ryan Schadt.
The ninth grade biology students completed their first biology project. Students randomly chose an organelle and completed a series of questions dealing with their organelle. The next step was to present their findings to their class in a one-minute presentation. Once all three classes presented their work, all papers were posted in the Gallery, the walls outside Room 215. During the Gallery Walk, students in all three classes voted for the best of three categories. Our winners are Bryanna Katonic for best explanation of the function of her organelle and Cheyanne Ferguson for best drawings and best overall appearance.
On Saturday, October 11, three members of the Manual Academy Band had an opportunity to perform the National Anthem at a Bradley Volleyball game. These members of the school's saxophone section did a fantastic job and represented their school with pride. Congratulations to senior Harvey Burnett, junior Charles Bennett Barker, and sophomore Anthony Yeagle.
