November 16, 2022

We are pleased to unveil our beautiful newly painted full wall mural! Special shout out to Mrs. Compton, her art club students, and staff for creating this masterpiece consisting of student artwork from this school year. The art club met before school to determine what the mural will look like. Students and staff worked hard last weekend to complete the project! The finished project will put a smile on everyone's face as they enter the halls of Central Manor. Please stop by to see it when you are here for conferences. Thank you Mrs. Compton and all those who helped to bring this wall to life!

Last Thursday, October 6, 2022, the students of Central Manor participated in the Apex Fun Run. It was a momentous day full of fun, sunshine, bright orange, and physical activity. Thank you to the many parents who came out to cheer on their children and our students. Thank you to those who supported this event in helping fundraise money for our school. This was a wonderful culmination to two weeks of learning various leadership skills---X FACTOR. The official earnings have not yet been announced; however, it appears we have reached our goal.

Central Manor Embraces Apex

October 5, 2022

Over the last two weeks Central Manor and Apex have worked together to promote our Fall PTO Fun Run. We kicked it off with an exciting whole school assembly! Throughout this week Apex athletes have been visiting our classrooms teaching students about the X-Factor in preparation for our Fun Run on Thursday, October 6th. Students have learned to be Fearless, to Adapt, to Care for Others, to Talk Positive and to Be Original. Students have also been encouraged to share information with family and friends about how they can support our school. Classes have been working as a whole to earn rewards throughout the week. Tr. Soto's 4th grade class won the most shares and were able to duct tape Mr. Malek to the wall! Apex encourages students to remember... I REALIZE I AM FEARLESS… I REALIZE I CAN ADAPT… I REALIZE I CARE…. I REALIZE I SHOULD TALK ‘EM UP… I REALIZE I AM ORIGINAL… AND I REALIZE I AM THE X-FACTOR!
