Sixth Grade Transition

As we begin to plan for the transition of 6th grade from Kyffin to various middle schools, this will be an informational hub for parents (and students).

District Informational Website - this page has answers to many of the questions parents & community members have asked, as well as information and important dates.  It is (and will be) updated regularly.

Additional Information Nights at The Manning School
Due to the large volume of families at our last open house and due to a high phone traffic, Manning has decided to schedule two more Community Open Houses for families interested in Manning as an option for their current 5th or 6th graders:
·         Wednesday, November 15 from 6-7:30
·         Wednesday, December 13 from 6-7:30
On these evenings, we will share what Manning has to offer their students and answer their questions about how we will transition from a 7-8 to a 6-8 system.  They can expect information regarding:
·         Our traditions of academic rigor meant to prepare students for high school, college and life beyond.
·         Our expansive elective, club, and extracurricular opportunities meant to help students discover and kindle their interests and passions.
·         How families and students can tour Manning during school hours.
·         The logistical decisions and systems we’ve made to make our building efficient and effective with a larger student body.
·         The open enrollment process.
·         How Manning students balance meeting the demands of high academic expectations while remaining whole, engaged, active kids.
There will also be an opportunity for families and students to ask questions of current students, parents, and teachers to get a sense of whether or not Manning is right for them.

Manning School Tours for Families and Students:
If you’d like the opportunity to tour the school and its classrooms while school is in session, please join us from 2:15-3:00 pm on any Tuesday or Thursday afternoon from the week of November 13 through the week of December 12.  During these tours, families and students will have the opportunity to see our building, observe classroom instruction, ask questions of current students and teachers, meet the principal, etc. There is no need to make an appointment or call ahead to these tours.  Please come when it is convenient for you and check in at the main office.
