Dear Manorhaven Families,


I trust this letter finds you well, having enjoyed a summer filled with treasured memories, playful moments with your children, and a renewed energy for the upcoming school year.


The first day of school is like opening a door to new beginnings, where fresh friendships, exciting learning adventures, and joyful experiences await. Just as the seasons change, this day marks a time of transition and growth—a natural part of life's journey. Embracing change isn't just about starting anew; it's an invitation to join hands and create a special opportunity that will forever touch the hearts of your children. It's a privilege for me to be part of this transformation as the interim Principal of Manorhaven Elementary School.


As we get ready for the year ahead, my unwavering focus as the new interim Principal of Manorhaven Elementary School is to foster a caring and engaging environment for each child. My dedication also extends to partnering with our wonderful families and the exceptional Manorhaven staff, ensuring that your children enjoy the best possible experience, not only on the first day but every single day of school. Working closely with you, I'm excited to steer the course of a rewarding academic journey for your child.


Please rest assured that we're here to stand by your side as you help your child prepare for the upcoming school year. Whether it's about addressing any worries, sharing important details, or assisting you through the transition, all you need to do is reach out to us via a quick phone call or email.


During the summer break, our custodians and clerical staff have been diligently preparing, ensuring our school is spotless, our supplies are abundant, and we're fully equipped for the year. Our dedicated teachers have also been hard at work, crafting inspiring learning adventures that will ignite curiosity, spark creativity, and nurture meaningful growth for every child.


Let's embrace a year filled with welcoming change, cherishing precious moments, and crafting fresh memories. We're absolutely thrilled to set forth on this adventure alongside you and your children, and we're counting down the days until the first day of school arrives. Below, you'll find some important information to keep in mind as we approach the new school year:
