Kids and teens love using the messaging app Snapchat because it lets you send texts, pictures, and videos that you program to disappear after a few seconds. But parents should be aware that it's not actually true that Snaps disappear forever. Learn more about Snapchat here at Common Sense Media.
Manchester Board of Selectmen & Town Recreation Committee have approved the addition of a natural play-scape to compliment the Castle Town play equipment at the Manchester Elementary School! Playscape architect Sashie Misner has designed the area to invite curiosity, creativity, physical challenges, and learning with natural products.
You can help make this happen!
Your contributions will make possible the purchase of materials to create:
a garden area play hills with slides & climbers
imagination spaces plantings with paths and sitting space
logs & boulders for balance safe space defined by fences
With your help you, and many generations to follow, can come to this public area to play, discover, create, wonder, and learn.
Please consider a tax-deductible gift to the Manchester Playscape Fund. Manchester Playscape Project
To ensure safety for all, the circle in front of the school is for busses only between 7:15-8:00 AM and 2:30-3:05 PM. Parents are asked to park in the rear school parking lot (near Castletown) when dropping off/picking up their child during that time. Please note, our school day does not start until 7:30 a.m. (all exterior doors are locked until this time and students will not be allowed to enter until 7:30 a.m.!) Additionally, students may not be dropped off on the playground until 7:30 a.m. because there are no duty teachers until this time!
