MLSD has successful opening

On Thursday, Aug. 13 the Manchester Local School District launched the 2015-16 school year with an emphasis on team work and school pride.

After weeks of decorating classrooms and preparing lesson plans, the MLSD staff welcomed students back for a new school year. According to school Superintendent Charles Shreve, “Everyone was excited to see the students return. We had a very smooth opening.”

“The start of school was excellent here at Manchester High School,” said principal Jamie Wilkins. Wilkins credited the smooth transition back to school to his staff of teachers, secretaries, and custodians. “Everyone helped out, making sure their jobs were completed so that when the students arrived we were completely ready for the start of school.”

Assistant Principal and Athletic Director Chris Young echoed Wilkins’ thoughts, “We have a great staff in place, and we are looking forward to having another great year with our student body. We take pride in what we do here and our students share that pride in this facility and what they gain here.”

The emphasis on teamwork in creating a positive educational experience for students is standard practice in the elementary school as well. Principal Nick Roberts reaffirmed, “We work as a team. I am very pleased with the staff we have on hand and the expectations we have for our students.”

The first two days of school the staff focused on student safety. They practiced safety routines and covered the rules regarding proper behavior in the classroom and in the building.

“We do step it up on the third day,” Principal Roberts stated. “We look for high rigor in the classroom to meet academic expectations for the students.”

Principal Wilkins also spoke briefly about his school’s goals for the year addressing not only academic standing but also the issue of bullying. “Our goals at MHS are simple. Treat others well and learn. I think we will accomplish these goals”, he added. “We’ve done a good job in the past thanks to our fantastic staff.”

Superintendent Shreve also said that there was no significant change in enrollment. He noted that there was only one glitch in an otherwise smooth opening, “We were unsuccessful in filling a sixth grade math teacher’s position, but we have employed a qualified long-term substitute until the position is permanently filled.
