Manton Summer baseball and Softball: With the 2023 summer baseball/softball fast approaching, we would like to share with you a few changes coming to our program. Our hope with these changes is to improved the experience for all players and families.
The biggest change this year is the decision to change leagues. Manton summer baseball/softball is now in the Pine River league. The rules of this league are very similar to what we have followed previously.
First change is how the kids are divided into league levels. Students will be divided by grade.
-PreK4year-1st grade (T-Ball)
-Sen-4th (Coach/Machine pitch)
5th-6th (kid pitch)
7th-8th (did pitch)
- Only changes expected at this level are the teams we play.
-Athletes playing on the middle school teams are encouraged to still participate in the summer program.
Registration will be announced soon. Manton Summer Rec league board
7th and 8th grade band festival has been rescheduled for tomorrow at McBain High School. Students will leave at 1:45pm and perform at 3:30pm. Students will need to be picked up from school at approximately 5:30pm. Please remind your student to bring black dress pants and dress shoes to school tomorrow. Any permission slips that have been turned in will be counted as parents giving permission to attend the event in McBain with the amended date and time. If your student has not turned in a permission slip, please send them to school tomorrow with a note stating they have permission to attend band festival on 3/1/23. Thank you again for your understanding in this matter and thank you for supporting the arts.
WMISD : Keep your child on track in Middle and High School. Pay attention to Attendance.
Did you know: Students should miss no more than 9 days of school each year to stay engaged, successful and on track to graduate.
By 6th Grade, absenteeism is one of three signs that a student may drop out of high school.
By 9th grade, attendance is a better predictor of graduation rates than 8th grade test scores. Missing 10%, or 2 days a month, over the course of the school year, can affect a student's academic success.
What you can do: Make school attendance a priority
Help your teen stay engaged and communicate with the school

ACES DAY: What is it? In 1989, a physical education teacher created Project ACES (All Children Exercise Simultaneously). ACES Day takes place each year on the first Wednesday in May as part of National Physical Fitness and Sports Month along with National Physical Education Week. Since 1989, millions of children from all over the world exercise together to promote proper health and fitness habits.

We are registered for ACES which means our school is committed to providing an opportunity for all of our students to exercise at the same time! We will be celebrating with a quick kickoff assembly on the practice field and walk around town!! ACES Day, Fun Runs, the Combine, Fuel Up events, sports camps and clinics, and Wellness Wednesdays along with other activities are all ways we are celebrating and promoting health, wellness, physical activity and community with our students!
