Dear Parents,

The 5th grade students at Manatee will be participating in a "mock presidential election" at school on October 17th at 1:00. The Brevard County Supervisor of Elections will be bringing in actual voting booths and our students will have the opportunity to vote on the two following items: President and the US Senate. We have talked about our rights as citizens of the United States and about voting for government officials and laws, etc. in our social studies classes. We have not, however, discussed Presidential Candidates, people running for different offices and new laws or bills being added or amended. We just want to give you the heads up in case you want to talk with your child at home about the upcoming election so they have an idea on what your family believes in and the decisions that you might be making in November. Don't worry, it's all confidential and the Elections Office will be tallying the votes of all Brevard County 5th graders that participate.

 

The Camp LaNoChe parent meeting will be held at 5:00 pm on October 17th in the Manatee Elementary cafeteria.  We will be showing a slide show of past camping trips, discussing the new fundraiser and answering questions.  Please plan to attend as this is our only informational meeting for this field trip.

 

We are looking for science fair judges for the Manatee Science Fair to be held on December 6th.  This is an exciting day for our students in grades 3-6 who will compete.  If you have a science related degree/career, and would like to volunteer as a judge, please contact Mrs. Schenck by November 1st at Schenck.sharmaine@brevardschools.org or 433-0050 ext. 5501.  If your student will be competing, we will make sure you judge a different grade/division.  So, have no fear you can join the fun at the Manatee Science Fair!!!!
